[NEWS] Unexpected partnership brings new housing to Chinatown
Chinatown has little room to grow.
The Center City neighborhood is boxed in by the Gallery to the south and the Convention Center to the west.
Most construction is happening to the north of Vine Street, and most of that is for high-end housing.
But in a narrow elbow of vacant land, near the delivery entrance to the Gallery on Arch Street near Eighth Street, two nonprofit developers are moving ahead with plans for a nine-story, 94-unit apartment house.
