This is what I said earlier in this thread. THe condo boom is all talk. There are plenty more conversions than there are high rise condos in the works right now. Oh well...

Do you think that has something to do with the excellent stock of old townhomes/rowhouses already available in and near center city? I think that a boom will happen eventually after the city's momentum has picked up a little more steam.

10 Rittenhouse is happening.

Mandeville Place is not dead.

The Murano looks like a go for January.

Just because a project does not move forward at lightning speed doesn't mean it isn't happening at all. There is a surge in condo construction - not all highrise. Some type of demand has to be there or these projects wouldn't even be announced.

NC, the supply of row/townhomes around CC has little to do with it mainly because such housing was occupied long long ago. The only places you'll find swaths of such housing to be found are in neighborhoods farther out from Center City and generally in areas that aren't touted as great neighborhoods.

It would be so cool if RATR and Mandeville were approved. I'm sick of looking at that unsightly parking lot next to the Ritz.

i thought ratr was approved for a second too, but i guess its not. the murano is one of my favorites so i think it great that that one seams to be heading in the right direction. and how do u guys feel about waterfront square. do u thiink it will help turn the waterfront into a neighborhood. u know, if all the zoning issues eventually get resolved

Waterfront Square, for now, will be a gated community so I don't see how that fact alone would contribute to the development of any type of community outside its own gates.

10 years down the line, after these projects have finished there may be some type of neighborhood environment but then again look at the condo and apartment towers that line The Parkway. Do you see people mingling in the streets there?
