  • DC-based National Real Estate Development plans to add another residential tower to the East Market development, reports The Inquirer’s Jacob Adelman. “The newly added [21-story] tower would be built atop a two-story retail podium now rising at 1199 Ludlow Street,” he says, adding 240 units to the 322 now under construction “at 1213 Walnut Street by Houston developer Hines and the locally based Goldenberg Group.”
  • Dan McQuade speaks with the mastermind behind the international al fresco event Dîner en Blanc, whose 5th annual Philadelphia rendition held on the Art Museum steps last week was met by Philadelphians’ usual mix of enthusiasm and antipathy for large scale public gatherings. Safi admits that such pushback is basically exclusive to Philadelphia (69 other cities around the world are dining in white this year). “It’s a Philly thing,” said Safi, “but what makes it really odd or funny or special in a sense, is that Philly is still the most successful, or one of the most successful events.”
