Upward trends in West Philly

America's Hometown has two positive reports on successes of Penn and the city in building up West Philadelphia: a huge new mixed-use development to be started this year and a summary of recent trends in the opening of new businesses there (a ton in just the last year) and the surge in house prices. Makes you think about what it takes to revitalize the whole region... Perhaps the combined efforts of Rendell (in Center City), Street (in the outer neighborhoods), and the new school superintendent (to retain motivated families) will pay off more broadly in coming years.
