I would not want to live at that specific location. There really are no redeeming qualities about it from a residential aspect.

Eh 19th + Arch? Not so much.
Philly had the right idea with the Squares/Parks( Rittenhouse Washington etc) Center City could use about 5 more of them.
One other thing is that Philly can't afford to be spreading its assets around too much.
Waterfront Square? Why? What was that all about? That area wasnt ready for development and it shows. The project on the Delaware pretty much flopped. Those 5 towers would have done wonders at 23rd + Arch along the Schuylkill.
Again the baseball ball park and Wachovia Wells Fargo arena should have been located in Center City where they could have added to the synergy of downtown. Leading to more investment and vibrancy.
And of course Northern Liberties happened 25 years premature.Make the core(Center City) as strong as possible then worry about tackling Northern Liberties,Fistown,Navy Yard.
