Temple’s Rowers Still Without A Permanent Home

  • Complementing the work now underway on the Wayne Junction station, Nicetown CDC and Kenny Gamble’s Universal Companies will construct a 50-unit, low-income complex across the street, at Wayne & Windrim Avenues. Called “Nicetown Court II,” the development will provide some 5,000 square feet of ground floor retail space, allowing for what Flying Kite sees as “a key piece in the neighborhood’s comeback puzzle.” For more on this section’s transformation, see previous News stories HERE and HERE.
  • The Inquirer reviews this year’s winners of the Knight Foundation Philadelphia Arts Challenge, announced yesterday. Ranging from established organizations like the Arden Theater to individual artists, the 35 recipients were chosen from more than 1,260 submissions to help fund cultural projects in the city and region. The grants, which together amount to about $2.76 million, will lead to: light art in the new Chestnut Hill Friends Meetinghouse, an art-event space in an old lot in Kensington, a new sculpture for the renovated Dilworth Plaza, the adaptive reuse of a church as theatrical space, and many more projects.
