We stopped by the forthcoming Wharton Street Lofts, coming to the old Annunciation school at 12th and Wharton, because we remember developer Leo Addimando said he planned to start work on the building in the first quarter of 2013.
This week, the front didn’t look that different from what we saw when we took the above picture in the fall. But a quick walk around back showed us that a crew was buzzing around inside.
Addimando told us yesterday that they had begun demolition and planned to be finished sometime in 2014. He said no tenants have been lined up for the first-floor space, but that he hadn’t really started looking yet.
That still means there’s time, maybe, for South Philly Co-op to go in there. Maybe?
