At Home Brings New Superstore to North Parkway in Huntsville
(Huntsville, AL) - EBR Huntsville LLC , the owner of the Kmart Plaza on North Memorial Parkway in Huntsville, is excited to announce that Dallas-based home décor retailer At Home will be opening a store on the property in summer 2015. Kmart announced it would be closing its North Parkway location in January, 2015. At Home is a home decor superstore with an expansive selection of patio furniture, home furnishings, wall decor and decorative accents, rugs and housewares. At Home will lease the entirety of the 104,000 square foot Kmart building and have a workforce of about 25 employees. EBR plans to renovate the building to accommodate the new At Home tenant. Additional site plans include a new 8,000 square foot building on the property for a possible restaurant and other smaller retail. "We certainly believe there will now be a powerful group of retailers in North Huntsville with the addition of At Home to the already existing Costco and Home Depot stores," said Howard M. Levy, Vice President of EBL&S Property Management Inc. "North Memorial Parkway will become a destination for shoppers." At Home's primary expansion area is the Southern U.S., and the company has two stores in Birmingham. The Huntsville location will mark the company's third store in the state. "At Home maintains a highly flexible site selection model (we own, lease and build new stores to support our growth), which allows us to be opportunistic when second-generation sites like this one become available," said Stacey Sullivan, At Home Director of Public Relations and Communications. "This location was also appealing to us due to strong retail co-tenancies and roadway visibility and access." Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle says the City is pleased to welcome another new retailer to the City's Parkway corridor. "We want to thank EBL&S for quickly turning around this excellent retail site and for their continued investment in Huntsville," said Mayor Battle. "We also look forward to making At Home feel a part of our home." EBL&S Property Management, Inc., the Property Manager and Leasing Agent for EBR Huntsville, LLC, has a strong record in re-tenanting and revitalizing shopping centers across its portfolio. ### For more information, please contact: For more information, contact Howard Levy, Vice President of EBL&S Property Management Inc., at hlevy@ebl-s.com, or call 215-790-4700.

32. The Power and Process of Creating Independence National Historical Park in Urban Philadelphia
Congress’s 1948 legislation for Independence National Historical Park (INHP) opened opportunities for a new kind of national park. The efforts of Philadelphians to establish and then be involved in the design of the federal park have been sustained through generations. The federal designation of approximately 50 acres in Philadelphia, with Independence Hall at the core, highlighted history and national landmarks, championed partnerships, and was planned also to revitalize private investment in neighboring historic properties and to establish connector green spaces between federal property and city property. Those were new ideas in 1948. Design opinions from local and federal experts were not always in sync but all agreed that the new park would be a major civic improvement. Architectural and landscape design have been conscientiously edited and selected in every phase of the park’s physical evolution from the 1950s to the current day and have been precedent setting in many ways. Interestingly, while the significance of events and historic buildings are the raison d’etre for the park, the green spaces have proven to be of vital importance. By most accounts the original goals for the park have been realized. First, massive building demolition sparked some controversy that occasionally echoes today. Then, colonial revival design walls and gates, which are probably mistaken today as 18th century elements, were constructed to knit the city blocks into a subtly identifiable whole park and associated properties, like Christ Church cemetery and Washington Square. Advocates for formal axes (Edmund Bacon) won with the creation of open land to the north of Independence Hall, while advocates for use of historic street patterns and an urban sense of enclosure (Charles Peterson) could see their vision realized in the treatment of property east of Independence Hall, in ground level pavement, and in low brick wall outlines of missing buildings. Numerous historic structures were restored to their original appearance and some almost completely reconstructed. Venturi and Scott-Brown’s Franklin Court provided innovation in design rather than reconstruction of historic buildings, while using traditional materials. New gardens received special treatment from partners. In 1997 there was both an opportunity to reexamine the mall design and an obligation to fix a location miscalculation of the park visitor center. Non-federal money enabled the mall to be redesigned in the late 1990s through the OLIN Partnership and other prominent architectural firms (Bohlin-Cywinski-Jackson, KMW, and Pei). This redesign was informed by a rigorous public engagement process for a master plan and adhered to the original vista concept. The new visitor center was built on the mall in 2001; in 2003 a building to house the Liberty Bell was constructed on the west side of the mall (and amended to interpret the Presidents’ House site); and the Independence Mall landscape was re-designed, and bookended in 2000 at the north end of the third block by the National Constitution Center/museum, that breaks from tradition in its form. Ideas new in 1948 have been sustained and are still proving their worth even if perspective on the novelty has changed.

City of Huntsville, CVB unveil signage for downtown Huntsville
In over 60 locations, signage to enhance residential/visitor experience FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE June 22, 2015 (Huntsville, AL) – What’s the deal with all of those poles going up in downtown Huntsville? They are the beginnings of installation for new wayfinding, or directional, signage for downtown Huntsville. The City of Huntsville, in conjunction with the Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB), unveiled the finished product and design of the signs today at a news conference. The location of the first sign to complete installation is located at the southeast corner of Courthouse Square near Harrison Brothers Hardware. Eight different sizes and versions of this wayfinding signage will be installed in strategic areas throughout downtown. (See signage renderings on page 5) Installation will occur throughout the summer. Locations for the signage extend from I-565 near the Washington Street exit on the northern boundary of downtown Huntsville, south to Governor’s Drive, west to Memorial Parkway and east to the edges of the Twickenham and Old Town Historic Districts. (See attached map on page 5 for signage locations*) *Some signage locations are still subject to change. “Downtown is our central gathering place, and we want everyone to feel at home here in the heart of the City,” said Mayor Tommy Battle. “For visitors and residents to truly be comfortable, they need to be able to find their way around to attractions, public parking, and the popular arts & entertainment districts. The signs provide a polished look and are a helpful tool for citizens to enjoy our growing and thriving downtown.” In all, approximately 65 signs will be installed in downtown Huntsville helping visitors and residents alike easily find key destinations such as the Von Braun Center, the Visitor Center, the Twickenham Historic District, the EarlyWorks Family of Museums, the Huntsville Museum of Art, the Arts & Entertainment Districts and more. Three larger, stone-based “gateway” signs will adorn key downtown Huntsville entry points. Downtown Huntsville’s Twickenham, Old Town and Arts & Entertainment districts will have their own, branded icons on signage representing the diverse culture and character of the locations. (See attached examples on page 6) “We’re excited to unveil, with the City of Huntsville, the new wayfinding signage as it presents a clear and unified ‘welcome’ to Huntsville’s city-center,” President/CEO of the Huntsville/Madison County CVB Judy Ryals said. “A big piece of the puzzle when it comes to enhancing Huntsville’s reputation as a visitor and meeting destination is having a vibrant, identifiable downtown that is easy to navigate. These signs will make our visitors’ experiences even better and hopefully promote more return trips and increased word-of-mouth recommendations.” The design of the signage is centered on a water element representing Big Spring, the original water source for the City of Huntsville and the current location of Big Spring International Park. Downtown wayfinding signage has been in the works since 2010, when representatives from the City of Huntsville and the Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau formed an exploratory committee including Marie Bostick, former City of Huntsville manager of planning and zoning administration, Ken Newberry, planner for the City of Huntsville, Kelly Schrimsher, Director of Communications – Office of the Mayor, Jennifer Moore, CVB Vice President of Tourism and Judy Ryals, CVB President/CEO. The CVB sincerely appreciates Alabama State Senator Arthur Orr’s assistance in getting this project off the ground. Senator Orr was instrumental in securing initial grant funding. The City of Huntsville embraced the project and oversaw its implementation. Designed by Virginia-based Frazier Associates, the production of the signage was completed by Tuscaloosa-based company Knight Sign Industries (KSI). Ultimately, the look, feel, and direction of the signage was determined by a committee of downtown community leaders including City Council President Mark Russell, The Arts Council Executive Director Allison Dillon-Jauken, Von Braun Center Executive Director Steve Maples, President/CEO of Downtown Huntsville, Inc. Chad Emerson, City of Huntsville Manager of Urban and Long Range Planning Dennis Madsen and additional representatives from the City of Huntsville and CVB.

Train Station Groundbreaking
Niagara Falls International Railway Station & Intermodal Transportation Center set to connect rail visitors to downtown attractions Niagara Falls, NY -- Officials from all levels of government were on hand for the long-anticipated groundbreaking of the Niagara Falls International Railway Station & Intermodal Transportation Center at the site of the historic U.S. Customhouse on Whirpool Street Monday. The occasion marks both the beginning of a new chapter in the city's efforts to ensure continued passenger rail connectivity to Buffalo and Toronto, and the construction of the first high speed rail station in New York State to receive Federal TIGER II discretionary funding. Once completed, the $25 million project will include the renovation of the U.S. Customhouse, a nationally-registered historic location, for use as a Department of Homeland Security border inspection and processing station. The station will serve as a transportation hub, bringing visitors close to bus routes, pedestrian and bicycle paths, taxis, shuttles, and lots facilitating "park-and-ride" transportation options. Mayor Paul Dyster: "We are finally building the hub of transit-oriented development that Niagara Falls and western New York deserve. The new station will put passengers in the heart of the Falls, provide seamless links to other modes of transportation and better support our local economy. This project is decades in the making and long overdue. Today, our trades men and women start to turn an idea into reality and earn a good wage while doing it. Today, a plan turns into action." U.S. Senator Charles Schumer: "For nearly three decades, the Niagara Falls International Railway Station has been a goal for the community, and for forward-thinking leaders like Mayor Dyster, Representatives Slaughter and Higgins, and many more. That's why together we've fought for federal, state and local funding to turn this dream into a reality. Because with the completion of this station, rail will once again be the conductor of the regional economy, with the potential to generate millions annually in tourism revenue from visitors coming from Canada and throughout the Northeast. Finally, we have construction plans in place and shovels in the ground to build this transformational transportation and culture hub, and along with it, an economy in Niagara Falls as great and as powerful as the wonder from which it gets its name" Congressman Brian Higgins: "Niagara Falls has a unique natural resource that no other community can claim. So when we combine projects like this transportation center with ongoing improvements to Niagara Falls State Park and removal of the Robert Moses Parkway, we are building the infrastructure to support a better tourist experience and welcome new economic development." New York State Department of Transportation Commissioner Joan McDonald: "This is a great project for the city of Niagara Falls, which will result in a modern, safe and efficient multimodal transportation center, and support new economic activity for the city. Thanks to Governor Cuomo's leadership and partnerships with Amtrak and CSX, this important new transportation hub will become a reality." Niagara Falls City Council Chairman Charles Walker: "This may be the most important construction project in our city this century. This facility provides rail travel across the region in a safe and accessible setting for our residents, while connecting visitors directly to our waterfront and downtown businesses district." Niagara Falls City Councilman Robert Anderson: "Thank you to our partners in both state and federal government for their assistance in securing funding for this project. This project shows what can be accomplished when we work together." Niagara Falls City Councilwoman Kristen Grandinetti: "I am thrilled to have the privilege of supporting such a momentous project on behalf of the people of Niagara Falls. This has been a long time coming, and our taxpayers deserve to begin seeing the economic benefits that this station can provide." Niagara Falls City Councilman Andrew Touma: "This train station is an important piece of the revitalization strategy here in Niagara Falls. This massive improvement to our transportation infrastructure, in conjunction with the removal of the Robert Moses Parkway, will provide unprecedented access to our waterfront and to Main Street." The station is expected to create approximately 200 full-time equivalent construction jobs and almost 400 indirect full-time equivalent jobs, at a total of 137,000 man hours. 20-25 separate contracts are expected to be put out to bid before the project is complete, providing local businesses with many opportunities to compete for a role in its construction. The Federal government, in part through a 2010 TIGER II grant from the Federal Railroad Administration, has provided close to 80% of the funding for this project, with the State of New York contributing an additional 10%.

Grand Central Station: How a Train Transformed America
Grand Central: How a Station Transformed America (Grand Central Publishing) is a rich and entertaining history of the iconic Grand Central Terminal just in time to celebrate the train station's 100th fabulous anniversary. In the winter of 1913, Grand Central Station was officially opened and immediately became one of the most beautiful and recognizable Manhattan landmarks. In this celebration of the one hundred-year-old terminal, Sam Roberts of The New York Times looks back at Grand Central's conception and amazing history, as well as the far-reaching cultural effects of a station that continues to amaze tourists and shuttle busy commuters. Along the way, Roberts will explore how the Manhattan transit hub foreshadowed the evolution of suburban expansion in the country and fostered the nation's westward expansion and growth via the railroad. With stories about everything from the famous movies that have used Grand Central as a location to the celestial ceiling in the main lobby (including its stunning mistake) to the homeless denizens who reside in the buildings catacombs, this is a fascinating and exciting look at a true American institution. This event was hosted by the Graduate Center's Gotham Center for New York City History at the Proshansky Auditorium on February 28, 2013.

The 15 Meter tall Millennium Gate spans Pender street at the Western most entrance to Vancouver's Chinatown. It is located just East of the Taylor Street / Pender Street intersection. The most traditional part of the Gates design are the two lions on the Western side of the gate. The two lions were placed to look over Chinatown.

"It is a gate for a new millennium that links with the past". The Millennium Gate is a part of a larger scale plan to market Vancouver's Chinatown. Its construction was also part of the process to improve business & living conditions throughout Vancouver's Downtown neighborhoods. The Millennium Gate is also an integral part of the "Silk Road", a historically details passage between Chinatown & Downtown Vancouver. Funding for the Millennium Gate came from the city of Vancouver ($250,000), the Provincial Government ($200,000), the Federal Government ($250,000) and the Community ($160,000). Mean while the Chinatown Millennium Society had already raised ($20,000) in the community for the project.

Kansas City Week in Review - December 6th, 2013
This week Governor Jay Nixon brings Missouri lawmakers back to Jefferson City to approve a $ 1.7 billion incentive package to coax Boeing to build its new mega plane, the 777X, in the Show-Me-State. Around a dozen states, including Kansas, are climbing over each other to try and claim this Boeing prize. But does Missouri or the Sunflower state really have a shot? Join KCWIR, Friday December 6th at 7:30 pm and the rebroadcast Sunday at 11 am as we connect the dots on this story and the region's other most significant news events... The Downtown Drive-Thru Debate... Should Kansas City banish drive-thru restaurants downtown? A plan to put a a Jimmy John's drive-through deli at Ninth and Broadway on the site of a long-vacant building is giving a number of downtown Kansas City residents and some city officials heartburn. The project has ignited a debate over how to continue revitalizing downtown as a neighborhood and whether drive-thru's distract from that. The Museum split... The KCMO City Council votes this week to separate management of the Kansas City Museum from Union Station. Is this an amicable divorce? The move comes five months after the abrupt firing of Kansas City Museum head Christopher Leitch, which was never fully explained. The Kansas City Museum, which has been housed at Corinthian Hall, is currently under renovation. Based on this new deal it will fall under the City Parks Department. Chiefs Concussion Lawsuit Remember the whole controversy over the NFL and concussions? Well it's not going away and certainly not for our hometown Kansas City Chiefs. Five former Chiefs players file a lawsuit against the team this week. They are seeking financial damages as a result of head injuries suffered while playing. Alexander Cooper, Leonard Griffin, Christopher Martin, Joseph Phillips and Kevin Porter were members of the Chiefs in the late 80s and early 90s. The lawsuit claims each player is suffering from "post-concussion syndrome and latent brain disease." The suit is noteworthy because it is the first filed against a single NFL team. First KCI Public Meeting A task force charged with weighing up a new single terminal design plan for KCI airport held its first public hearing this week. But the meeting is abruptly halted after a bomb threat is called in at city hall. But before all the high drama kicked in, did we learn anything about the public's sentiment in this first opportunity for citizen's to weigh-in? RNC IN KC 2016 They're calling in the big guns to try and land the Republican National Convention here in Kansas City. Former US Senator Bob Dole of Kansas and Missouri US Senator Kit Bond are named as co-chairs this week for the campaign to bring the convention to Kansas City in 2016. Kansas City hosted the GOP convention in 1928 when Herbert Hoover got the nod and in 1976 when Gerald Ford won the nomination. Will 2016 be the year it returns to Kansas City?
