RUMOR MILL UPDATE: What about the buzz about a Wegman’s coming to this development? Not going to happen.
The leasing agent working with developer Bart Blatstein on the proposed retail hub for Broad and Washington has released a wish list of sorts in the form of a leasing brochure. Particularly interesting is the inclusion of more than 1,000 parking spaces.
The brochure displays what appears to be a 94-foot building that also includes a “cinema,” grocery store, four second-floor restaurants with terraces, a humongous gym with outdoor running track and about 20 retail spaces ranging from about 2,000 square feet to more than 100,000 square feet.
The site, which is still pending approval for a one-season setting as the Philadelphia Arts Market, is still owned by New York-based Hudson Capital, but Blatstein has the land under agreement of sale.
So, folks, what do you think?
