"The result: a more inclusive park by many accounts that, while not totally immune to societal ills, is an example of an approach that Balfelt says is about quality, time and trust."

    In Copenhagen, a "People's Park" Design Includes Dark Corners
    In the center of Nørrebro, a relatively diverse northern neighborhood in otherwise homogenous Copenhagen, lies a park the size of a small town square. Despite its unimpressive size, Folkets Park, the People's Park, is a square plot of grassy land that has been contested for decades.

Feibush’s decision, which came on the heels of a 5-4 vote by the commission, means the chapel and the associated buildings at 1024 Christian St. — a 7,200-square-foot lot — are once again looking for a buyer.

    Bella Vista church saved from demolition; Feibush redevelopment off
    By a 5-4 vote with two abstentions, the Christian Street Baptist Church was designated as historic, derailing developer Ori Feibush's plans to demolish the building and build five town homes in its place. - Caitlin McCabe, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News
