A $125 million adaptive reuse project is looking for help with infrastructure improvements. Pittsburgh's Urban Redevelopment Authority is considering tax increment financing to fund street improvements.
A proposal to extend the Broad Street subway line in Philadelphia is intended to attract new commercial and residential development in the city's Navy Yard. A change in construction technique is driving up the cost, however.
The Rebuild initiative in Philadelphia depends on funding generated by a 1.5 cents-an-ounce tax on sugary beverages. The tax is in effect, but $300 million in bonds have to wait for a court decision about the tax.
