SEPTA AND THE CITY SAY "LET'S DO THIS"

And now for some shameless self-promotion: here's a link to a press release about a panel discussion I participated in last night - "New Transit Revitalization Investment District Plans Released Today for 46th and Market Street Station, Temple Regional Rail Station; First for City." What was great was sharing the panel with higher-ups from both SEPTA and the City. They're the two key institutions if you want to see good transit-oriented development in Philadelphia, and both were overwhelmingly positive, enthusiastic, and committed to making this happen. It's a tough time, between real estate sluggishness and municipal budget deficits, but sometimes all you need is for the right people to say, "let's do this." I heard that last night, and that makes me hopeful.
