  • Liberty Property Trust announced yesterday a $1 billion proposal for a rejuvenated Camden waterfront called, well, The Camden Waterfront—basically a district rebuild, the long elusive catalyst. With Liberty envisioning two skyscrapers by the Delaware’s banks, just south of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, NewsWorks relates a general mood of optimism that perhaps this, unlike the Aquarium and Campbell’s Field, just might be.
  • For all those Philadelphians now on a brief sojourn away from their city this weekend, Philadelphia mag’s Liz Spikol describes—and the Daily’s Brad Maule photographs— the curiosities of “Popeadelphia:” gratuitous bagpiping, the linguistic diversity of Manhattan, crowds of bored police officers, pampered journalists, and juxtapositions aplenty.
  • The Inquirer stopped by the Parkway to get a sense of how the homeless will be affected during the papal visit. While they were asked to leave the Francis Festival Grounds by 10PM last night, they may reenter today, and will be given meals from the event. The city’s various shelters and outreach agencies expect to see their beds and cafeterias full.
