While checking on the many projects in the works near 30th Street Station, we made one final stop at 3201 Cuthbert St., just slightly to the north, to visit a project we last told you about a little over a year ago. A gorgeous new lab building was planned for

This spring, we took you on a magical mystery tour of development, with our final stop coming at what we called "Lower Northern Liberties." For alliteration's sake, we couldn't help today but to shorten the area to "SoNo" - or "Southern Northern Liberties." We wince as we type it out,

We find ourselves on Girard Ave. or thereabouts more often than practically anywhere in the city, and that's no accident. This corridor has been booming for a while now, all the way from the Delaware River, to Brewerytown, and beyond. Today, we head to 1000 W. Girard Ave., a long
