  1. Where are the people that are going to pay $1500-3000 a month to live on North Broad? The only reason Blatstein can charge that much is because he got a huge chunk of change from the state for this project.

    • so—the state gives Blatstein some bucks [credits?] which I suppose would reduce his costs ["make the project possible"] and are you saying that lower costs allow him to get higher rents? Please explain the connection between the two statements you are making.
