A little over a year ago, we shared the news that development would be forthcoming on the north side of 1100 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue, at the vacant lot to the south of The View at Montgomery. Not surprisingly, that development was coming at the hands of the Goldenberg Group,

A reader reached out to us last week with a potentially hot tip for a large parcel on North Broad Street, right near Temple's campus. This person went past 1401 N. Broad St. earlier this month, and spied a large truck on the property that looked like it was performing geotechnical borings.

We aren't sure why you'd ever find yourself at the corner of 6th & Berks, but if you do, you'll quickly notice something a little out of the ordinary. On the southeast corner stands a relatively new two-story building that strongly resembles a barn that was designed by a contemporary
