Snyder Avenue is getting a boost with a new office.
Landmark Architectural Design, the firm behind the building that will replace the Broad Street armory, moved into the corner storefront at Snyder and Juniper nearly two months ago after rehabbing the interior.
You might not know it from the outside, though.
But don’t fret, owner Vincent Mancini says they are in the process of sprucing up the facade. Here’s what it will look like:
And it’s already better than the previous tenant, a medical supply store with weird hours and boxes piled up over the window. It closed in December.
In case you’re keeping track, that means four trees where there weren’t any (planting in the fall), new lighting where there wasn’t any, a window where there wasn’t one and an ivy wall using what’s called a “green screen.”
Lamdmark’s move – they were at 1303 S. Broad St. but Mancini sold the building — is hopefully the beginning of several new businesses along this strip.
Snyder Avenue has sort of a bad reputation, but once you get out of your car and walk around, there’s actually a lot to like. Let’s hope other people start agreeing.
