Philadelphia Magazine reported on a proposal brought forth at the Northern Liberties Neighborhood Association Zoning Committee on January 27. Auto dealer Gene DiSimone, developer Michael Mattioni and ISA Studio Architects proposed to the committee possible plans of a waterfront auto showroom to be located on Delaware and Fairmount Avenues. Phillymag.com reported that the plans include an eight-story building with a cafe, apartments and an auto showroom.
New York offers a similar attraction at the Mercedes House in Manhattan. It would be awesome to see a proposal like this to go through and continue Philadelphia’s Delaware Avenue Waterfront development.
