How historic is the building? Like on a scale of original Penn Station Station to that gas station?

well, used to be club Egypt. And back in the day the entire sales office for a company I worked for was fire for downloading too much pornography. They were in that building. So it’s pretty historical.

In a floodplain and across the street from Delilah's back door, but I'm sure the amenities will be amazing. I'm not opposed to development, but housing people in places likely to flood is silly.

It’s not silly if you account for it in design. Looking at the base of the new building it looks like they are elevating it substantially.

Same thing with the new units in east falls. They have to be elevated at least 20ft off of kelly

I think that parcel is out of the flood plain, just barely. But yeah. Still, there's a lot of underutilized lane there all zoned near skyscraper, there's a way to do it that should last 100 years or so, and then it's just Venice
