The Washington Square West Civic Assn. would like to provide information to its members about a proposed Casino development at Market St. and 8th St., aka Market8. Members of the Civic Board have met with officials from the Market8 group and become familiar with the plan. The Board has not taken a position on the proposed development and provides the below links and information as courtesy to its members only. The proposed development, although technically not within the formal geography of Washington Square West, is on the border of our neighborhood. The links below are summaries provided by the developer. The third web link provides information on all 6 proposed Casino developments currently being considered for Philadelphia (only 1 site will be chosen). We solicit any feedback at info@washwestcivic.org
