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

Bridgeman's View Tower

900 North Delaware Avenue

Dead from every angle.
                    Here it is... another broken dream, and a good-looking one at that. This awesome tower was set to be the impetus for a second downtown along the Northern Liberties Delaware Riverfront. Instead, we got dicked.

  1. A second downtown? Just because you build it doesn't mean they come. Remember the Ridgway Library?

  2. A glass curtain skyscrapers go this one would have been a doozy.

  3. It really is a shame. Between that entire part of Northern Libs with it's dozen or so proposals and the Penn's Landing redevelopment and the redevelopment of Columbus boulevard....all being pretty much dead or in limbo, all we have to show is 3 of 5 ugly apartment buildings and a 1/2 built casino that looks to have been converted from an old Best Buy store. I give up on this city.
