1900 Arch under constructionNew multifamily rental projects accounted for 68 percent of all new housing construction in Greater Center City last year, and 97 percent of all new construction in the city core. Two projects, 1900 Arch (shown here under construction last spring) and Icon, accounted for the bulk of that 97 percent.

A continuing influx of residents, the bulk of them Millennials, has continued to fuel a housing construction boom in Center City and the areas to its immediate north and south, according to the Center City District's latest analysis of the state of the Center City housing market. And while this influx shows no signs of ebbing soon, there are a few issues the city needs to address if the housing market in Center City and the city as a whole is to remain

The University of Pennsylvania Board of Trustees last week signed off on the design for the Pennovation Center, the first major component of the university's planned Pennovation Works project on the east bank of the Schuylkill River in Grays Ferry, just south of the Penn campus.

The Pennovation Center project will repurpose a former DuPont Co. materials research lab into a hub for enterpreneurship, innovation, research and social interaction.

SIte and context photos for artists' workspace project at 1309 S. 33rd St.

By Gabriel Gottlieb

The Zoning Board of Adjustment approved a new artist studio workspace on October 8.  The building for the new workspace is in a former church annex in Grays Ferry.  The building needed a use variance to be converted into the workspace, because the zoning is RSA5.

Attorney Henry Clinton made the presentation for developer Cormac McAleer.  The building is located at 1309 S. 33rd St., next to the Hope Presbyterian Church at 33rd and Reed streets.  The James W. Queen Memorial Building was built in 1895 and has been used as a day care, a library, a gym, and most recently a Head Start center.  It is surrounded by a new Bottom Dollar supermarket, the former

Anti-bike theft pilot program launched in Graduate Hospital

bike locked to rack With new bike lanes carving out safe routes for cyclists, the new zoning code imposing fewer and in some cases no requirements for parking, and a bike-share program on the horizon, cycling is undoubtedly gaining traction as a viable mode of transportation in Philadelphia. Unfortunately, bike thieves have kept pace with the uptick in riders. In an effort to thwart thieves and keep Philly on track to becoming a pedal-powered polis, law enforcement is turning to the community for help. Just how pernicious is the problem? In 2008 U-lock maker Kryptonite ranked Philadelphia the worst city for bike theft. According to analysis of police data conducted by Azavea, a local geo-spatial analysis firm…
