The Strong, Konar Properties, and the Indus Hospitality Group are jointly developing this ground-breaking project.  The first component to break ground was the parking garage project, in mid-2018.  The full project will create the new Neighborhood of Play and includes:

– Expansion of the Strong National Museum of Play
– New 150-room hotel, with pool and spa
– The VIDA Apartments & Townhomes project totals 225 apartment units in five buildings
– 1,000-space parking garage, and 445 additional surface parking spaces
– 17,000 s.f. of new retail and restaurant space

The parking garage and first of Konar’s housing buildings (at Union and Broad Streets) are complete as of February 2020.  The Hampton Inn hotel is expected to break ground in 2020, and the remaining components will start construction in 2020 and 2021.
