Hello, this is Robert Stack and you are now reading this in my voice. Since the inception of Philaphilia in April, 2011, quite has bit has changed in our fair city. Play this Youtube clip for the appropriate music:
Update! The Broad Street Shitjungle has been cleared a bit and now sports renderings of the upcoming Southstar Lofts. Build it!!
Update! The newest incarnation of Race Street 205 is getting tons of support despite NIMBY concerns. A new rendering is out there and zoning notices have been posted on the site. Build it!
Update! The crappy new 9/11 Memorial was dedicated on September 11th. Whoda thunk it?
Update! The shitty Bicentennial Bell Tower is one step closer to being destroyed... renderings showing the (crappy) design of the new American Revolution Center have been released.
|Its kind of ok I guess.|
Update! Construction is about to begin at 3737 Market Street, eliminating one of the two University City Science Center lots. Huzzah!
|Yawn, but better than an empty lot.|
|You know how they say "Never say never?" I'm saying "never".|
Update! Another addition to the Fisher Translational Research Center/Roberts Proton Therapy Center is currently under construction. That was fast!!
Update! The Shitz Carlton Waldorf Awhoria Fail Lot will soon be no more!! A Philadelphia W Hotel is in the works for this spot and is now fully approved, with funding!!! Construction is to begin in the Spring. Huzzah! Build it!!
Update! The Deadly Disappontment Lot is gone! Construction continues on the disappointing-looking Home2Suites that will replace it. Huzzah!!
Update! The U.S. Customs House's facade is now restored and looking a helluva lot better!
Update! The Great NIMBY Memorial is one step closer to disappearing. Toll Brothers is about to start building a crappy residential development. NIMBYs will probably kill it before it starts.
|A bit lame.|
There are still many unsolved Mystery Buildings that need your help. For every development, there's someone, somewhere, who knows the truth. Perhaps that someone is reading this. Perhaps... it's you.
