lighterthief's picture

seems like a stretch given economy right now but a hotel would not be a bad add for columbus blvd... what's about this Motion Picture Hall of Fame?

The shape of things that came shows on the broken workers face

I'm more excited about the possible hotel on Frankford Ave.

Come to a FNA zoning meeting to find out.... :-)

It's being proposed by the same folks who developed Frankford Hall.

Ummmm, there is no Delaware River Authority and this part of the flyer screams at me:

The Motion Picture Hall of Fame (MPHF) is planned next door which will bring an est. 1 million visitors.

I was so hoping for the Beer City rotating hotel.

I was at the FNA meeting last night that discussed a much different, smaller hotel at
Frankford and Thompson. This is a different developer and a different parcel.

Yes, I understand that. That's why I said I was more excited for the one to possibly be actually in the neighborhood.

Rumor has it that Starwood Hotels is looking at the old Novick Brothers Warehouse at Dreer and Coral for a "W" boutique style hotel and residences.

I heard there will be a Wegmans on the 8th and 10th floors.

I wasn't aware of that but I am aware of the new Fresh Market store moving into the Food Cart location at Front Street and Kensington Avenue.

And don't forget about Starbucks moving into the old Amazon Thrift on Kensington Avenue.

I wasn't aware of that, and SKA is two doors down! :)

Definitely a scam.

It does give me ideas for some epic trolling of several city planning organizations. I'll just need a domain, phone number and a po box somewhere :)
