18th Street Update # 2

Both sides in the dispute over and the 18th Street demolitions reached a settlement this morning. That means that construction of the Ten Rittenhouse condos by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, can start as soon as the four townhouses are down - in about five or six weeks.

As of yesterday, the project's opponents were demanding a stay on the demolitions. But after about 20 minutes of arguments this morning before Judge Matthew A. Carrafiello, they asked for a recess. Ten minutes later, everyone came back into court, shook hands, and declared the five years of litigation formally over.
