What Does Bart Blatstein Think of Philadelphia’s Future?

Few people have had a bigger impact on Philadelphia in the last couple of decades than Bart Blatstein, who’s not only re-imagined and revitalized Northern Liberties, but who’s now trying to bring to fruition a dazzling casino project on North Broad.

So what does Bart think of Philly’s future? What’s it like trying to get something built in Philadelphia? What does he think of Philadelphia’s leadership? And what, exactly, is the deal with the mansion he just bought on Rittenhouse Square?

I’ll be asking him all those questions, and more, at our next ThinkFest Salon, which takes place Monday evening, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the Barnes. As with our March conversation with Brian Roberts, this is your chance to listen in on–and take part in–an intimate conversation with one of the most influential thinkers in Philadelphia. Tickets are available here. I hope to see you there.
