No parking: City tells developers eyeing jilted police HQ site in West Philly to leave lots alone

...millions of dollars before abandoning the property in favor of the former Inquirer Building at 400 N. Broad St. for the new police headquarters...

The city’s plan calls for the police department to move from the cramped and dated four-story concrete building at 750 Race St., popularly known as the Roundhouse, to the former newspaper building on North Broad Street by spring 2020 at an expense of $280.3 million.

This article has 2 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

City officials told the three finalists seeking to revamp the former life insurance campus at 4601 Market St. that two parking lots on the property, now used by an adjacent juvenile jail, cannot be included in their plans.

The lots, to the immediate east and south of the Juvenile Justice Services Center (JJSC) at 48th Street and Haverford Avenue, cover two acres of the 15-acre site, according to Jessica Calter, a spokeswoman for the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corp., which is overseeing the property’s sale.

Did a Chinatown restaurant steal the secret sauce?

That month, Huang and Liang opened Chu Shang Spicy, at 925 Arch St., under the legal name Laoma Philly LLC. The New York restaurant’s corporate name is Laoma Spicy LLC.

Name disputes among Chinatown restaurants are not uncommon. After Xi’An Famous Food opened at 902 Arch St. in 2013, it received word from the New York restaurant of the same name. It later was renamed Xi’an Sizzling Woks.

In another case, a settlement was reached three years ago to separate the rival restaurants called Dim Sum Garden. The one at 1020 Race St. uses the Dim Sum Garden name, while the original restaurant, at 59 N. 11th St., is called Tom’s Dim Sum.
