With $24 million parking lot deal, Goldenberg Group mulls Market East development

Eighth and Market is one of the most significant intersections in the city,” Seth Shapiro, Goldenberg’s chief operating officer, said in an email. “It affords, and even demands, a significant, sizable, mixed-use development.”

    With $24 million parking lot deal, Goldenberg Group mulls Market East development
    The development was once dominated by the original branch of the now-defunct Gimbels department store chain, which was demolished in the late 1970s when the store moved to the then-newly built Gallery. - Jacob Adelman, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News
