UPDATE: Demolition has begun on the old Armory, with heavy machinery taking down the rear of the building before the facade, for now. Plan Philly reports that the debris is being trucked out the back via Juniper Street, and that the demo effort will take until November to finish.
The developer behind the 50-unit apartment building proposed to replace the old Broad Street Armory – which should be coming down any day now – will go back before the South Broad Street Neighbors Association tomorrow night for a formal presentation.
The first meeting in February was an informational “prerefusal” presentation in which developer Michael Carosella and architect Vincent Mancini of Landmark Architects sought feedback from neighbors. The duo has since revised their plan to include a commercial space on the first floor, which several attendees indicated they wanted.
