A City Council committee approved two zoning bills yesterday in favor of Lincoln Square, the mixed-use development proposed for the northwest corner of South Broad and Washington. The bills now go to city council for final approval.
PlanPhilly reports that at yesterday's meeting, the committee unanimously approved a bill that will rezone the 3.36-acre parcel from I-2 medium industrial to CMX3. The other bill proposal modifies an overlay, which will allow the development to include drinking and eating establishments, non-accessory parking, and increased the occupied area.
Lincoln Square has received a good bit of community support since the developers announced their plans for the nine-story apartment building with retail this past March.
When Curbed Philly spoke with Steve Gendler of MIS Capital then, he said the goal is to present to the Civic Design Review mid-summer.
