    Reading Plans their own Baltimore Inner-Harbor

    In my area there has been a lot of talk about this:
    http://www.riverviewatreading.com/
    The plans include the following:
    New apartments
    Retail Stores
    Minor League Stadium for the Reading Phillies
    Soccar Fields
    Aquarium
    Water park (indoor and outdoor)
    White Water Park
    Businesses
    Skate Park
    Possible Trolley System
    and much more.

    There are a few problems; the Reading Phillies like their current stadium, the project costs $2.8 Billion, and it is built along a flood plain.

    In my opinion I like the project, but the only problem is that it will be built in an area prone to flooding. They are saying about adding a 6 to 11 foot flood wall, but still, it has flooded higher than that. Also, downtown Reading is a real unsafe city and covering it up by just building something big and fancy isn't going to solve the problem.
    The renderings are on the site posted above.

    This looks like a project I might be able to document if it happens!

    More news about it as it happens.
