Take a look at new renderings for Broad and Washington Lincoln Square development

From the start, the Lincoln Square development proposed for the north-west-side of Broad and Washington has received much more positive feedback than Bart Blatstein’s massive development across the street.

Broad and Washington drama: Blatstein doesn’t have legal right to property, ZBA decision could be delayed again

UPDATE: Despite the letter from the property owner, and the request for a moratorium, the ZBA approved the request for a tower anyway. More from Philly.com.

Since it has only been a week since the initial hearing, the ZBA has reportedly taken back their approval and will reconvene and announce once two weeks are up.
