According to the Passyunk Post, developers presented plans for a mixed-use project at the Passyunk Square Civic Association meeting on Tuesday.

Midwood Investment and Development presented plans for a 5-story building that will consist of 18,000 square feet of commercial space, 70 apartments, 8 single-family trinities and an underground parking lot that will hold around 150 cars.  This development will grace the vacant lot of 9th Street and Washington Avenue.  The planned building will need to replicate and blend with the existing historic Italian Market buildings.

The apartments are planned to consist of one and two bedroom units, while 8 new trinity-style homes will face the Darien Street side of the project to blend with the existing homes on that block.

The project will take an estimated 18 months for completion. It is unknown as to when development will begin.

 

Possible Pop-up Garden Coming to Italian Market vacant lots

The Passyunk Post reported that the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society is interested in opening a pop-up garden in one of two vacant lots in South Philadelphia this summer. Both lots are located in the Italian Market neighborhood on 9th and Wharton Streets and 9th and Washington Avenue.  The foot traffic from Geno’s and Pat’s Steaks as well as the Italian Market could potentially drive a large amount of business.

The plan was presented last week at the Passyunk Square Civic Association meeting. Some neighbors voiced concerns over an excess of trash that could be produced due to the gardens.

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society opened a garden on 1438 South Street last summer and hopes to open another in South Philly by Memorial Day Weekend.

Blatstein Preliminary Plans Unveiled for Broad & Washington Lot

Developer Bart Blatstein unveiled the preliminary plans on Monday evening for the vacant lot on the corner of Broad Street and Washington Avenue. According to the Passyunk Post, Blatstein presented the plans to local residents at the Hawthorne Cultural Center.

The project will consist of 210,000 square feet of retail space, which is expected to include a grocery store, restaurants and a bike shop. The Passyunk Post also reported that retail jobs will go to the residents in the surrounding community first.  Two residential towers will be placed above the retail space, which will total in about 33 stories.  It is estimated that each tower could hold 500-800 units.  Most of the units will consist of studio/1 bedroom with 2 bedroom options offered as well. Rent is estimated to be in the mid to high teens.  The residential units will have access to a private terrace, dog park and a walking track.

Blatstein answered questions from concerned residents about parking. He explained that each residential unit will be provided with one parking space, but is hoping to attract a demographic that mostly bikes or walks. The project’s close proximity to the Broad Street Line and Center City is also an increased incentive.

The project is expected to break ground before June 2015.
