East Passyunk Avenue’s infamous King of Jeans building located at 1843 E. Passyunk Ave. may finally have a new development plan in the works.
Next week, developer Andy Kaplan, will present his plans for retail space and 12 apartments to the Zoning Board of Adjustments. It is unsure whether or not the plans will go through and be approved. That particular intersection of Passyunk Avenue is booming with business. It would be great to see a new store or restaurant open and bring life back to that space.
King of Jeans clothing boutique closed in 2009. It is a hot piece of real estate in a great area for business.
