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.
Things are getting more and more complicated at Broad and Washington. Following the developments surrounding Bart Blatstein’s 32-story project has been a roller coaster ride lately, with the ZBA approving the project, then taking back that decision, followed by Councilman Johnson introducing a bill calling for a moratorium on construction on this lot.
There has now been yet another bump in the road for this project, with N/H Philadelphia Properties, the real estate company that owns the lot, sending a letter to the ZBA stating that Blatstein has no legal right to the property and that a decision should be held for 30 more days.
