The wine garden set to open this spring on 18th Street between Market and Chestnut Streets in Duane Morris Plaza has a name: Harper's Garden.
Four Corners Management, whose holdings include Morgan's Pier on the Delaware and the new Concourse Dance Bar, says it will run Harper's by itself at 31 S. 18th St. Initially, the wine garden was to be a partnership with Tria.
"It's a cool project," said Jon Myerow, an owner of Tria. "It just isn't the right project for Tria."
"Harper" is after James Harper, a 19th-century businessman and U.S. congressman who built a mansion on the north side of Rittenhouse Square that later became the Rittenhouse Club.
