Builder Facing A United Front River's Edge Residents Fight Garage Plan - philly-archives
few handfuls of houses are huddled together on Front Street between Vine and Callowhill. In the winter their windows rattle when the big trucks grunt along rutted Delaware Avenue, and in the summer the stench floats in from the meat-packing plants nearby.

The urban pioneers who live on this one block of houses call their section of town River's Edge. Isolated from Old City by I-95, River's Edge is not the kind of place many people would like to live.

For neighbors, the residents have a city auto impoundment lot, a city trash incinerator, a storage cubicle farm and block after block of crumbling, abandoned brick warehouses. They don't have a drugstore, corner grocery, taproom or newspaper stand.

About the only thing River's Edge does have is a spectacular view of the river and the majestic Benjamin Franklin Bridge spanning it, and the neighborhood is fighting hard not to lose that.

A downtown lawyer says he's going to build a six-story parking garage in the residents' faces. The 65-foot garage, on a Delaware Avenue lot right in front of the homes, is needed for all the people who will be coming to the $22 million Philadelphia Marine Center, argues Malcolm Lazin, the lawyer and managing partner redeveloping the waterfront between Piers 12 and 24.

So far, what's open is a 350-slip marina adjacent to a marine trade center, ''the first time in the nation there's a shopping mall for boat fanciers," Lazin says.

By next year, Lazin expects to open a nightclub, a private yacht club and ''one of the largest restaurants in the Delaware Valley" at the rear of Pier 19, near the boarding ramp for the paddleboat "Liberty Belle" and other tour boats.

"I happen to be bullish on our waterfront," Lazin said in his parking garage pitch to the city Planning Commission last week. "When it's done, it will draw more people than (Baltimore's) Harbor Place. It will be the top attraction not just for Philadelphia but for the entire commonwealth."

The River's Edge residents are bullish on the waterfront too. They readily acknowledge they rehabilitated their shells with an eye on the city's 1982 riverfront plan, which called for low-density, mixed-use development along the Delaware.

"I would be happy to say that I agree with Malcolm Lazin that this area should be a fun, active space," said architect Charles S. Johnson, a partner in Alley Friends Architects, which has been on the block the longest, since 1973. "I'm for upgrading the neighborhood, but who wants a block-buster sitting here?"

Looking out his apartment window at an oceangoing tugboat, Johnson said, ''It's a great view, but you won't be able to see it" if the parking garage is built. "You're going to be looking at the a- - end of Cadillacs."

Mary Malcolm, who has been living in her four-story rehabilitated house for 18 months, said, "We clean our streets, we want to see it developed. We want something good. But all we're talking about is put the parking somewhere else."

When Johnson bought seven buildings on Front Street 14 years ago, "I almost think the landlord would have paid us to take them. Boy, they were pieces of junk."

That was before construction of I-95 and the relocation of the Market- Frankford El. Front and Vine was a full-fledged intersection, center of the Dietz & Watson meat-packing firm's slaughtering operation on Monday mornings, Johnson recalled.

"So every Monday morning, there'd be two or three truckloads of hogs sitting out on the street, and on the other corner John Tinney trucking parked their cars on the streets, so there was grease everywhere. We had to be absolutely nuts," said Johnson.

But he was a recent architecture graduate of the University of Pennsylvania who had next to no money.

"You cross your fingers and hope that the whole thing doesn't go downhill," he said.

Tom Noon bought an abandoned building on the block in 1979. "I had to pay it off. There was no bank financing down here, still isn't. But I wanted to live there, and I was privy to the riverfront plan. It's a nice neighborhood, close to everything, enough parking."

The parking garage plan is making him think he needs to put a sign on his house - For Sale.

The person the River's Edge Civic Association's two dozen members have

closed ranks against is a former federal prosecutor and chairman of the Pennsylvania Crime Commission who made a run for district attorney in 1977. A dapper man in his early 40s, Lazin is a resident of Society Hill whose name pops up in society columns from time to time.

He's the managing partner for Penn's Landing Marine Trade Center Associates, which has a 20-year lease and an option to renew with the Philadelphia Port Corp. According to the lease, the group pays a basic rent of $60,000 a year for Piers 12 through 24, plus a varying percentage of annual gross receipts on any activity at the piers.

Lazin last week declined to say what the gross receipts have been to date.

The area is zoned to permit construction of the 850-car garage on land owned by Lazin's mother. But Lazin agreed to submit to a review by the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corp., the Planning Commission and the Old City Civic Association, the parent organization of the River's Edge Civic Association.

According to the agreement, two of those three bodies must agree before the parking garage can be built.

That unusual arrangement has put the Planning Commission, which normally makes only non-binding recommendations, "unwittingly in the position of having to decide" the battle, commission chairman Graham Finney said.

Old City is backing River's Edge, and PIDC, as project financier, is likely to back Lazin, although PIDC executive vice president G. Craig Schelter said last week, "We will withhold comment until we see the plans."

But the River's Edge Civic Association has its own plan, drafted by Alley Friends and association president Andy Sacksteder, an engineer.

The residents' plan is 22 pages of sketches, maps and William Penn's original intentions, to support a mixed use of retail shops ringing a parking lot, green space, a tavern and a barn for the historic trolleys that now run up and down Delaware Avenue.

Sacksteder has asked for equal time before the Planning Commission, and he intends to argue that a parking garage is better suited for Front and Spring Garden streets.

"It's not just that we don't want a garage," said Colleen Murphy, who is married to Sacksteder. "It's a poor use of space. It wrecks the whole idea of a nice river development to put a parking garage right in front of the river. It's not very pleasing. In other cities, they didn't let developers throw up whatever they wanted willy-nilly.'
