A developer plans a new apartment building at the site of one of Philadelphia’s worst waterfront tragedies: the Pier 34 collapse in 2000 that killed three women.
Plans for an upscale billiards parlor in center city Philadelphia are very much in limbo, and City Council now is giving the developer a firm deadline to get the project going.
Council unanimously approved developer Robert Ambrosi’s plans for a combination hotel-condo-retail complex in Old City, at 4th and Race Streets, the site of the former Pincus Brothers Maxwell clothing factory.
Philadelphia City Council today gave its final OK to what would be the city’s first “upscale” billiards parlor. But the project promises to quickly end up in court.
