All Peruvian restaurants are, really.

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

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 3 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.
