What should be done with Penn's Landing??? This has been an issue since the '50's and since project after project after project has miserably failed, we're left with nothing more than a parking lot, and an empty lot. My proposal is to build an upscale mall on a third of PL (northern side), and the reason why is because I want to attract high end retailers like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, to come (no Macy's in Phila!!! I can accept them in KOP and WG, but not in the city!!!) Another reason is becuase all the Gallery is just nothing really than a passageway full of low-end shops and restaurants. While there is a need for these shops, we don't really have any high end shops (with the exception of Walnut St and Chestnut St, which I think should be our answer to a high-end corridor, like Fifth Ave in NYC, Michigan Ave in Chicago, and Newbury St in Boston). However, I think trying to fit Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus into the tight buildings around those two streets would require probably destroying them. I would rather have a mall on Penn's Landing than raze some of those historical houses. Those buildings could be used by smaller retailers. And, of course the money would help CC develop into a marketplace, as well to do business. Would you rather drive up 76 in deep traffic for 30 to 45 minutes, or would you take 5 minutes just to walk to the Mall of Penn's Landing. As for the car traffic, I was considering using an underground garage for all those cars rather than build another high-rise garage or a lot, with a subway extension from 2nd St to Penn's Landing. My mall would use the northern third of PL and Pier 1. Penn's Landing would also be an entertainment venue, a waterfront park, and a marina. I really want to help with the development of this city!!!
