Philadelphia Spectrum Site to be Developed

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports:

The Cordish Cos., based in Baltimore, has earned a national reputation for specializing in retail, dining, and entertainment ventures that, many say, transform urban areas.

Cordish's handiwork is in such places as Baltimore's Inner Harbor; Houston; Los Angeles; Louisville, Ky.; Kansas City, Mo.; and Hollywood, Fla. The names of the attractions are distinguished by an exclamation point.

Other projects include Atlantic City LIVE!, across from the Atlantic City Convention Center, and Maryland LIVE!, under construction in Hanover, Md. Now Cordish will embark on its first stadium-area development: Philly LIVE! at 1100 Pattison Ave. in South Philadelphia.

Comcast-Spectacor chairman Ed Snider and Comcast-Spectacor president Peter Luukko will unveil plans for the restaurant-and-entertainment district with Cordish vice president Reed Cordish at 10 a.m. Thursday at the stadium complex. It will be built on real estate that once was home to the Spectrum.

"We wanted to create a showpiece for Philadelphia . . . in keeping with the stature and prominence of the stadiums around us," Reed Cordish said in a phone interview Wednesday. "The existing LIVE! districts are all vastly different from one another with unique tenants, architecture, and layout."

He said he expected Philadelphia's district to be even more distinctive. "Other cities are looking into this type of stadium development, and we believe Philly LIVE! will set a new standard," Cordish said.

It will include a dozen restaurants - among them Chickie's & Pete's - and other local and national brands. Also planned are stages for live bands, and a sports-viewing venue that Cordish hopes will rival an ESPN Zone.
