    Senior housing proposed for new St. Rita's center on South Broad
    Back in 2014, church leaders at St. Rita of Cascia, on South Broad just below Washington Avenue, unveiled a proposal for a new conference center building on the large vacant lot next to the historic church. To the consternation of the South Broad Street Neighborhood Association, the proposed new Cascia Center was a low-slung prefab shed-like structure, not particularly complementing its neighbor.
