We were munching on some delicious wood fired goodness at Nomad Pizza this week and noticed one of those fire orange zoning stickers afixed to the outside of a warehouse directly across tiny Kater Street (and also across 7th Street from Good King Tavern). It turns out that a developer has plans to demolish the warehouse in favor of a new three-story building with a roof deck.

Four apartments with a yet-to-be-announced retail tenant on the ground floor would replace the warehouse. Naked Philly reports that the developers have already met with the Bella Vista Neighbors Association and needed the zoning variance because “the project calls for 100% lot coverage, same as the building the developers want to tear down.” It looks like the ZBA approved the application on June 23.
