The Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation says it will pull building permits and begin construction on the Eastern Tower, a 23-story mixed-use apartment complex and community center at 10th and Vine streets, in the next six to nine months. The group held a meeting Tuesday night at the Chinese Christian Church & Center one block west of the site of the proposed project to update Chinatown residents on the progress of the development.
