Renderings for Philadelphia's Virgin Hotel, 36 stories, 23 stories, on Rittenhouse Square (courtesy of YIMBY Philadelphia):

I totally missed this particular project. They say Rittenhouse, and I was super confused by the renderings, let alone by what they'd have to tear down to build it anywhere near Rittenhouse Square, but it's actually at South Broad and Lombard. Looks like they'll be removing a perpetually overgrown and urine filled parking lot and a run-down public health center. Huge improvement for that block.

Photos of Charlotte. I really like it here and I went on the tour that urban planet and other local organizations organized. The area we were at was essentially like east Nashville but with light rail. As a city Charlotte largely has its act together.

^ You must not have gotten the memo. There shall be NO praise for Charlotte on this board. Please consider taking down your photos (especially those featuring light rail). It would be for the best.  ^_^
