It’s going to be a busy meeting today for the monthly Planning Commission meeting at 1515 Arch Street, with no less than four mega projects on the agenda for review. The list includes (among others): a review of the plans for The Gallery/Fashion Outlets of Philadelphia; the proposed purchase of land for a prison in the Northeast; the re-zoning of the block for the townhome project at the former Mt. Sinai Hospital in Pennsport/Dickinson Square West and also the acquisition of  0.8-acre parcel known as the Viaduct for The Rail Park. The meeting starts at 1 p.m.

The city recently proposed legislation that would give developers PREIT and Macerich $175 million over 43 years for “construction, maintenance and operating cost” for the newly created public space at the revamped mall, according to Jacob Adelman of The Inquirer.
