Twenty years after Cadillac joined the fray with the CTS, GM’s luxury brand is back where it started, trying to establish the CT4 and CT5 as contenders. Ditto, Lexus, whose next truly successful small sport sedan will be its first. Reading between the lines of corporate cost cutting initiatives, Infiniti appears to have all but given up trying. Jaguar appears headed the same direction.

All of which makes the 2021 Acura

NBBJ unveils waterfront-revitalizing master plan for Chester, Pennsylvania

Less than 20 miles downriver from Philadelphia, where a multi-billion-dollar redevelopment of that city’s Delaware River waterfront is due to kick off next year, another historic Pennsylvania city is slated for a catalytic and long-overdue waterfront makeover that, in this instance, aims to spur economic development, enhance tourism opportunities, and bring together and celebrate a community that hasn’t always had it easy.

The city in question is Chester, the oldest in Pennsylvania. Incorporated in 1682, Chester is a small and once-prosperous city—declared a state-designated financially distressed municipality in 1995, the city is now under receivership—that’s experienced a decidedly disproportionate amount of turbulence over its very long history.
