Don Kligerman, Commissioner of Licenses and Inspections, said city inspectors found serious deterioration of concrete on the bottom three levels of the garage. The deterioration, called spalling, is causing the concrete ceilings to chip and break, exposing the steel reinforcing rods, according to building code violation notices filed against Parkway Corp.

"I have never done that before. It was definitely the first time," the offensive tackle said. "I've practiced in a gym, inside the [training] facility and even an auditorium, but never before in a parking lot. " Rather than cancel the 2-hour workout, coach Jon Gruden moved practice to the third level of a parking garage at an office building adjacent to One Buccaneer Place.

Dr. Richard Evans, a wealthy, ambitious dentist described as "a major force in the development of the northwest section of Center City," thinks the residents of that area are downright unreasonable, his attorney says. They demanded that he provide parking for an executive-office complex he built at 22nd and Arch streets, but when he devised a plan to erect a 50-car garage next door, they rejected it. He redesigned the plans to address what he thought were their concerns, but they didn't like that either.

Philadelphia zoning officials have reversed course on their approval of developer Bart Blatstein's proposal for an apartment tower, shopping complex and parking garage at the corner of Broad Street and Washington Avenue in South Philadelphia. The Zoning Board of Administration reconvened on late Wednesday to vacate a vote taken earlier in the day that granted the project waivers it needed to be built as planned, according to Sharon Suleta, an attorney for the panel. The board canceled the decision after realizing that it had taken action prematurely, having voted eight days earlier to delay its vote on the project by two weeks for further discussion, Suleta said.
