A brief item in the business section of the Philadelphia Inquirer a week ago caught my eye, and many readers, especially some of the former Philadelphians who read this site, will understand why:

"The Swarthmore Group, a West Chester investment-advisory firm, said it would move to Center City from Chester County.

"The company, which has 18 employees and $1.5 billion under management, said it would lease 9,700 square feet in the Bell Atlantic Tower, 1717 Arch St.

"The company said it was moving because it needs more space and because it believes a Center City location will help it recruit employees." [Emphasis added.]

Nobody would have said that 10 years ago.

(Though, don't we call it the Verizon Tower now?)
