How long have you lived in your house?
Antoinette: “We purchased our home in 2009, from a builder who was frustrated at the market and about to list the home for rent. We used that to our advantage and bought it at much lower than market value.”

It’s happening. Developer Ori Feibush, owner of OCF Realty, is starting his funding campaign for the 2nd District primary in 2015. Philly mag’s Simon Van Zuylen-Wood, who first predicted this in June, writes:

The announcement was short of specifics but an obvious theme emerged: His antipathy towards incumbent Councilman Kenyatta Johnson, whom he’s never been shy about criticizing.

Indeed, Feibush writes, “Can you imagine the good that could come to our communities if their Councilman was truly a willing and active partner?” Zing.

Though the sale isn’t yet a done deal, 2012 Wharton, formerly Louis Sherman & Co. printers, is in the midst of being purchased by a developer for a proposed 50-home project. The broker in the deal is OCF Realty — better known ’round these parts as Ori Feibush — but according to Feibush, OCF is not the developer. That mystery person will be revealed on Monday, Feibush says, at what’s likely to be a very spicy meeting of South Philadelphia Homes Inc.

Here are the details we know thus far of the developer’s proposal: Read more »

The Other Message From the ReNewbold Groundbreaking

Rendering of the new PostGreen Point Breeze development reNewbold.

If you wanted to see why rumors were circulating about John Longacre running for City Council, you should have been at the reNewbold groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday afternoon. If you wanted to see why he isn’t, you should have been at the ceremony as well.

And if you wanted to learn what the community leadership of Point Breeze really thinks about new development, this was also a good place to be.

Besides Longacre and representatives of the other businesses that worked to bring this ultra-green residential-commercial development about, the ceremony featured two people who are deeply involved in Point Breeze redevelopment issues: City Councilman Kenyatta Johnson (D-2nd District) and Claudia Sherrod, executive director of South Philadelphia H.O.M.E.S. Inc. (SPHINC), Point Breeze’s community development corporation and Registered Community Organization for zoning matters.

More Point Breeze Drama That You Don’t Want to Care About (but Secretly Do)

ocf-logo-400The Point Breeze Organizing Committee, which in the past two months has garnered headlines for publicly jousting with Point Breeze developer Ori Feibush, just laid out its latest manifesto against Feibush. The last post I wrote about Feibush about allegedly faked Facebook messages ended in conclusory apathy towards the whole situation, and this is no different. But for some reason, I just can’t quit watching what happens there and then writing about it on this damn thing.

“Prime Graduate Hospital Location” Is Oddly Not in Graduate Hospital

s chadwick

This seemingly attractive contemporary rental is on South Chadwick Street, a small thoroughfare between 16th and 17th that starts at Wharton and runs south from there to Snyder. Though the listing doesn’t say the exact address, an aerial view indicates that it’s at Chadwick and Wharton. Suffice to say you’d be hard pressed to characterize any part of South Chadwick as Graduate Hospital, let alone Wharton. (The founder of phillyskyline.com, who coined the term “G-Ho” for that neighborhood, says, “Washington Avenue is a CLEAR boundary, without equivocation whatsoever. South of Washington? Point Breeze.”)

Whatever you’d like to call the neighborhood, this four-bedroom home “in great Graduate Hospital location” looks rather interesting. According to the listing, details include:
