In a dream-pursued, dreamrealized venture, real estate developer Bart Blatstein, founder and president of Tower Development, Inc., the city's leading development company, last weekend unveiled to the public his much awaited and heralded Piazza at Schmidt's, located at Second Street and Germantown Avenue in Northern Liberties."I was born and raised "in Philly," said Blatstein, a longtime Jewish communal leader. "My company has always been in Philly and is now based in Northern Liberties, where my roots run far and deep."The street came out into a grand plaza," he recalled of that walk. "It was so open and full of life. I thought it was the ultimate way to live, so, since then, I wanted to bring that feeling to Philly."
