The abandoned building next to Nick’s Charcoal Pit on SnyderAvenue seems to be getting a facelift. According to this listing on Trulia, the building at 1244 Snyder Avenue was sold on Dec. 4 for $205,000
|Finally some activity at 1244 Snyder Ave|
The old “South Philadelphia Shipping Center” sign is still attached to the side of the building, although that business hasn’t been open for quite some time. The building has been boarded up for years, so this is great news for this part of Snyder.
Construction workers began working on the building this week, but no permits were posted outside, and nothing was listed on the city’s website.
Maybe it’s just getting gutted right now for a better use in the future. Now if we can just get some activity in the old medical supply store half a block away, the East Passyunk boom can start spreading onto Snyder and beyond. Here’s hoping.
