...it to 17th & Spring Garden before the Northern Liberties community worked to bring it to 2nd & Spring Garden in 1981...

    Help Restore the Doughboy Statue!
    We've commented a few times that the new Penn Herb building is essentially the gateway into Northern Liberties, and we therefore wish it were a little taller and more striking architecturally. The flaw to our argument is that Penn Herb isn't actually the gateway to the neighborhood since you have to walk through Doughboy Park before you get to it.

Bocce Ball For All: Locals Start Bocce League In Hopes of Bringing Community Together

  The ease of the game means people of any age or athletic ability can participate. However, all players in the league must be 21 to ensure they fully enjoy drink specials at the league’s sponsor bar The Black Taxi (745-747 N. 25th St.) after games every week.

    Bocce Ball For All: Locals Start Bocce League In Hopes of Bringing Community Together - Spirit News
    A few years ago, Kyle Fernley and Sam Holloschutz had never played bocce before. This summer, they came together to start a bocce league in Fairmount. The All-American Liberty League's season lasts from July 13th to August 23rd including six regular-season games for each team and two weeks of elimination-style playoffs.

Ribbon cutting Tuesday to celebrate Center City Target store's opening

- 2001 Pennsylvania Ave., where there is now a Whole Foods store, near the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It is projected to open in October 2017.

...I am thrilled to have Target moving to 11th and Chestnut Street," Epps said Tuesday in an emailed statement. "This development is another key milestone for this...

The new store, at 1128 Chestnut St., will be the first and the smallest of Target's four new "flexible-format" stores to open in Philadelphia. These stores, previously called Target Express, are smaller than the retail giant's traditional box stores and cater to the urban customer.

- 1900 Chestnut St., two blocks north of Rittenhouse Square, with a soft opening of Oct. 5 and a grand opening Oct. 9.

- The Ivyridge shopping center, at Ridge Avenue and Domino Lane, in Upper Roxborough, slated for March. It will be the largest of the four flexible-format stores at about 47,000 square feet in size.

Target already has four of its traditional box stores in Philadelphia: in South Philadelphia, near Christopher Columbus Boulevard; on Monument Road near City Avenue; off Castor Avenue in Port Richmond; and on Bustleton Avenue in Rhawnhurst.

Ten Units For a Francisville Corner?

So let's consider 1431 Brown St. as a prime example of the kind of project that will help Ridge Avenue get to where it needs to go.

Two doors down, we see a triplex is under construction, and there's another project planned at the corner of 15th & Brown. To the west and south are surface parking lots which probably won't be developed any time soon, but we can certainly dream.

    Ten Units For a Francisville Corner?
    Another day, another vacant Francisville lot getting redeveloped.These days, it seems that you can't go a single block in this neighborhood without running into a contractors framing a building, pouring a foundation, or digging a new hole. Ridge Avenue is particular is seeing an explosion in development, with a bunch of mixed-use projects now under construction and more coming soon.
