Re: 911 and 915 Broadway to become loft apartments

As a resident of this building since inception, I wouldn't be surprised if this place is sold off from Yarco (my fingers are crossed). They've been letting the maintenance and cleanliness slide, but as of late it's really nosedived. Management is nonexistent (so much so they recently had mounted TV'...

Re: OFFICIAL: Wallstreet Tower ( was:US Bank Tower going condo)

Glad it is happening. Bit worried about the noise for residents in the tower. How would there be any noise? I'm sure the lowest main floor of the tower is the amenity floor with the gym, patio, etc., and this being virtual suites (I'm sure its the same system used in The Grand) there should be no n...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

They do this every Thursday as Ford is a sponsor. The vehicles don't block pedestrian access and are on Cordish owned property. There have been some 311 complaints but those always come from road closures, as to be expected. From what I've read on here, many members are not fans of road closures. C...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

https://i.imgur.com/3nvPdtG.jpg Why does the city keep granting permits for this? Not only is it blocking the sidewalk, but it's also a hazard for those using the crosswalk since it blocks sightlines. (The Grand side is even worse...) Does the city really give permits for this? 311 got a little sna...

Re: Broadway

Here's public works newest invention- the reusable crosswalk timer! For use when those troublesome trucks keep knocking your expensive poles over. Simple fix- put a tire on the bottom to just role it back upright!

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

Yes I know the long term plan. I don't know why that would at all influence this idea. It's quick to implement and can be reversed if it impacts anything negatively. Sorry. My thinking was that they would need to be closing the NB lane for construction while they are building the bike lane on to it...
