SugarHouse talks expansion with the Planning Commission, including construction of the city’s biggest garage. Kellie Patrick Gates reports for PlanPhilly.

Pennsylvania lawmakers are considering over what to do with the remaining casino licenses. The Inquirer notes that a West Philadelphia or City Avenue casino site could be in the offing.

Councilman DiCicco cuts Chinatown out of NID, and Reading Viaduct park language is scrubbed from the proposed legislation, JoAnn Greco reports PlanPhilly.

City Hall has a crack. No, that’s not a metaphor. MyFoxPhilly has the story.

North Broad Street will get artsy new lighting courtesy of Avenue of the Arts. The Inquirer calls the lighting a “linear artwork,” that will run up the center of North Broad for 2 miles. Tonight a prototype of the straight steel lights will be unveiled at Temple, where the first fixtures will be installed.

Last night’s zoning forum ran the gamut from live negotiations between city officials on the panel to “mind-numbing back and forth,” according to the Daily News.
