Dead-Ass Proposal of the Week-- August 14th

First Version of Station Square

2900 block of Market Street

                     This proposal isn't exactly dead-- it was just executed in a very shoddy and half-assed way. The little area between 30th Street station and the old post office/current IRS Building has always been a pile of shit. There's not much that could be done with it-- the entire section is a gigantic bridge deck with railroads running underneath. Though the Porch isn't half bad, its not 1/10th of the original plan.

  1. Philadelphia can't have nice things. Ever.

  2. I don't like the red brick or whatever it is. It seems to really clash.

  3. After reviewing this a bit more, I do like how pedestrian-oriented it is though. As it stands now, walking in this area is so overshadowed by motor vehicle traffic that it degrades the experience greatly. I love the median and all the trees too.
