State will seek bids for new Family Court building

From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Gov. Rendell said Friday that the state would take over development of a new Family Court building, a decision that apparently kills a no-bid deal approved by the state’s top judge.

Rendell said he would release the $200 million for the huge courthouse at 15th and Arch Streets, but would require competitive bids, even if that means delays, to make sure the project is scrubbed of any conflicts of interest.

Rendell’s announcement means the apparent end of the court system’s two-year-old development deal with Donald W. Pulver, a developer from Conshohocken.
