Thus begins the process of wrapping an historical building in a modern “skin.” We’ll have to wait and see how this looks when they are done.

At least they’re not tearing it down. This way future generations have a chance to recover the historical building one day.

Don’t forget about the Eraserhood.com art donation to Drink Philly’s benefit auction for Alex’s Limonade Stand to be held at their Two Year Anniversary First Friday event!!

The photo to be auctioned for charity is of the 1910 Willys-Overland Motor Company showroom that was at 323-327 N. Broad Street. This Colonial Revival building was one of the buildings dedicated in 2010 as part of the new Callowhill Industrial Historic District. It was recently demolished to make way for the new headquarters of the Pennsylvania Ballet.

Now 200 stores in the US and 60 stores in Japan carry the United by Blue clothing line, in addition to online sales. The company headquarters is at 12th and Callowhill, where seven are employed full-time and Linton says there are plans to hire several more staffers in the next few months. United By Blue is set to hire a full-time developer within the next few weeks, bringing a job that was previously outsourced in house. UBB also hosts up to eight interns per semester in the spring, summer and fall.

The Quelle Source was among the three bands to perform at PhilaMOCA Friday night to celebrate the official launch of Collaborate Philly, a social networking site for the Philly creative and media community. The website, intended to bridge the gap between the various arts niches within the city, was started by Sam Watson (right), who was joined on stage by collaboratorLindsay Colferai.

(Not technically in the Eraserhood. Nonetheless, looking at the air space in this building always made me think of Deep River Apartments from “Blue Velvet” even BEFORE I knew David Lynch attended PAFA, right next door.)
