"As admirable as St. Rita's mission is, the design is a hard slap at South Broad and the recovering neighborhoods on either side of the boulevard - and at the church's own elegant limestone facade, which recalls the neighborhood churches of Rome. The building site is a prime corner on Philadelphia's grandest street, with a subway stop at its doorstep, yet St. Rita's proposed conference center looks like another unfortunate Broad Street convenience store."
