Swarthmore College, Hicks Hall mural removal

Most of the time when people tell you “out with the old and in with the new” it’s a good thing. Technology has advanced, building practices are more efficient, materials are better – you name it. And they are usually right. But sometimes when you are making that switch something from the past grabs you and holds on. Maybe it’s a memory from an era long gone or maybe the craftsmanship is unparalleled or just maybe there is something unique and one of a kind about it. Which is what we have here. You see, while Swarthmore College was preparing to...

The Metropolitan Opera House in Philadelphia comes to life!

The Metropolitan Opera House or Met located at 858 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia (yes, Philly has a Metropolitan – not just NY) is undergoing a $56 Million restoration as a new Live Nation concert venue. The beautiful building has been sitting vacant for years. The 39,200-square foot theater was built in 1908 by Oscar Hammerstein I and called the Philadelphia Opera House. When it first opened in it was home to the Philadelphia Opera Company and sat some 4000 people as the largest venue of its kind in the world. In 1910 Hammerstein sold it to the Metropolitan Opera of New...

Send me your money – Overhead protection and suspended scaffold at 1900 Market St.

It goes like this. You take your hard earned cash and give it to a stock broker who promises to make you a rich man. He says, “stick with me son, you’ll be farting through silk.” And since you don’t know jack about stocks and bonds only that you’ve seen these arrogant young punks driving around in Maseratis, Teslas and Ferraris you assume that they know what they are doing. So, against your better judgment - you send him your money. Maybe you check in with him maybe you don’t, but a few months later he calls and says, "wow we are...

Say Something. 1617 JFK Blvd., Canopy, Overhead protection around entire block!

Most of my posts are written and then I come up with the musical theme but this one was written the other way around.  I heard the song and thought it was fantastic but when I saw the video it just moved me.  It's one of the coolest combinations of film and music I've seen in a long time. (scroll to bottom) This is one beautiful job – you can’t deny.  When you see it you just know it is quality, love, and beauty.  Since this is a blog and the idea is to Say Something about the work we do and...

Multiple canopies at The Gallery Mall redevelopment, now known as the Fashion District Philadelphia

Hailed as the epicenter of Center City’s revival back in 1977, The Gallery Mall is finally getting its recognition as the preeminent shopping experience in downtown Philadelphia. It opened to the tune of $105 million; big bucks back in the day. But forty years has gone by and with it so has the sheen and promises on this old structure. Jump forward to right now as three city blocks and roughly 1,000,000 square feet of redevelopment are occurring.  And when it’s all said and done it will be the largest retail repositioning project in the region.  Once called The Gallery Mall, developers...

Names can be deceiving. Canopy at Tattooed Mom on South Street

Hey, I thought awesome here’s a post for all the Moms I know who are just dying to get tattoos for Christmas.  ;)   But I was in for a little surprise when I started digging. Seems it's not a tattoo parlor at all but one of Philly’s most instagrammed eating, drinking and gathering places.  In terms of followers it's right up there with South Street’s Magic Gardens, the largest work from local mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar. Sorry all of you Moms who wanted Christmas ink but there are places down the street. All we knew was that we had to help...

“I feel pretty…oh so pretty”

“We may lose and we may win but we will never be here again. So open up I’m climbing in to take it easy.” “Dreamer I know what you're thinkin'.” “Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me.  Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee.” I’m just going to mix a whole bunch of musical lyrics today and why?  Well, I’m in a good mood and it's always fun to see if you know the songs where they came from.  Life is short people.  It really is.  So love your kids and your family and be sure to tell them.  Remember to say hello to everyone. ...
