As reported by local blog phoodie.info blog earlier this week, the old Rock Lobster restaurant space (221 North Columbus Boulevard) will soon be replaced by Clark Maloney's OCTO Waterfront Grille. The Phoodie post includes design renderings of the large dining, bar and lounge space. Opening is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend.
There is a job fair for OCTO at the Hyatt Penn's Landing today and tomorrow (4/22).
Goodman is currently the Community Engagement Director at the New Kensington Community Development Corporation.
Previously, Goodman worked as a city planner and project manager for PennPraxis. His focus was on projects that combined community engagement and public space design, including the Central Delaware Waterfront Planning Process, the Green2015 initiative for Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, and the Bartram’s Mile project in Southwest Philadelphia. Goodman was an early contributor to PlanPhilly and helped shape the site in its first iteration. As PlanPhilly grew, Goodman represented the publisher and provided professional planning input and project management support as the site expanded its beat coverage, went through multiple redesigns, conducted an internal strategic plan, and researched revenue generation opportunities.
