Lockheed Martin gets $107M in tax credits for Camden lab [Philadelphia Inquirer]: “The company will create laboratory facilities in two downtown buildings and move about 250 jobs from the company’s headquarters in Moorestown, according to the EDA. The company also has a laboratory in Cherry Hill.

The facility will open next year, company spokesman Keith Little said.”

NextCity’s Diana Lind heads to Philly.com [NextCity]: “I’ve learned that change is a constant in cities and an indicator of their health and dynamism. I’ve seen how it’s a good thing for people, too. It’s in this context of continuing to grow and change that I’ve decided to move on from my role as Executive Director & Editor in Chief of Next City. Later next month I’ll be heading over to Philadelphia Media Network, which owns the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News and Philly.com, to lead a new focus on digital audience development. As someone who believes in the role of media to affect change in cities, I can’t think of a better way to have an impact in Philadelphia than to help reinvent the region’s biggest media company’s online presence.”
