A zoning notice popped up on a Washington Avenue block that could use some cool stuff, but it turns out that nothing new is coming in after all.
Dan Tran, new owner of the property at 642 Washington Ave., proposed moving his electronics store onto the first floor there – from next door. He also asked to put two apartments on the second and third floors.
The interesting part is that the Passyunk Square Civic Association zoning committee voted in favor of half the proposal – moving the store – but shot down the plan for the rest of the building. Generally, when a committee votes something down, the owner has to come back with a completely new proposal before even the favorable part moves forward.
