PlanPhilly's Year in Review: Real to Reel

      PlanPhilly's Year in Review: Real to Reel

When we decided to try to present the video and photo highlights of 2010 in a short slideshow it became clear how much had happened around the built environment in Philadelphia.

So we went to the archives and began reviewing coverage. There was the interactive, multi-media, five-part project chronicling blight in Philadelphia and development by the APM community development corporation in Eastern North Philadelphia.

And of course, all the Zoning Code Commission and Planning Commission meetings, as well as Delaware River Waterfront Corporation news, preservation stories, casino events and the SugarHouse opening (and the terminal Foxwoods saga), new Parks and Recreation coverage, SEPTA and transportation (even biking) news, plenty of participation, opinion and commentary ... and a lot more.

Please kick back and enjoy. We didn't include everything that was recorded but these are some of our favorite highlights. If you think we missed something especially significant, give me an email shout-out.

And, lastly, a hearty thank you to the planners, developers, politicans, concerned citizens, academics, preservationists, architects, real estate attorneys and archaeologists we covered in 2010.

So, happy New Year from the PlanPhilly reporting team: (The Waterfront and Planning); and (Zoning); (Preservation); (Transportation); (SS United States); (Design and Parks & Rec); and (Desolate to Dynamic series); (Newsworks). Here's to another newsy year in 2010. We are sure you will recognize the soundtrack.
