I wish someone would do something with this corner since repeated request to keep it clean were ignored.

Thanks for details! I saw 1502 was approved yesterday at ZBA.

What made people come around on 1502 Frankford? 4 less units and 5ft of height? Very surprising, I doubt anyone would be able to tell the difference.

Did the new proposal include the quality retail space, or did they have to dumb it down a bit?
