Morning Headlines: Fishtown Warehouse Could Become 12-story Apartment Tower
Travel up Columbus Boulevard far enough to where it becomes the old Delaware Avenue once again and you’ll see it, a pretty run down box of a building with one of the greatest ghost signs you’ll see in the city, “We Buy Old Rope,” reads the north facing wall on the Edward Corner building in Fishtown. According to Naked Philly, Core Realty owns the property and is planning to construct a 12-story apartment building with ground floor retail there. Will the warehouse be incorporated into the future designs, something that’s becoming increasingly popular these days?
Core Realty’s proposal also calls for 12 townhomes, a r00f deck, 205 parking spaces and possibly office space to the site, which at one time was nautical supplies building. The developers will meet with the Fishtown Neighbors Association on April 14 to present their plans.
