East of Broad gets a boost

Tuesday, September 26, 2006

The area called East of Broad Street in Center City, long in the shadow of its more successful, fast-changing brother -- West of Broad -- is on the verge of coming into its own.

A bevy of current and anticipated activity covering a swath of city blocks running from City Hall east to Independence Square and flanking both sides of Market Street has finally begun to coalesce. Momentum for the area has been created.
