What's Happening in:  Passyunk Square 

Work resumes on apartment project at 9th and Greenwich

Thanks to the faithful reader sent us this tip. You can be a vaunted tipster too by emailing punk@passyunkpost.com.


Construction has resumed on 1514-20 S. 9th St. at the corner of Greenwich, where five apartments and one live-work space are planned.

Those are going to be some bright-ass apartments

“They pulled down the facade a few months ago and then work stopped,” our tipster said. “About 3 weeks ago work resumed and they punched out the small windows to expose the original, very large warehouse windows. Also, they they completely gutted the space and framed the walls and ceilings. A full crew has been there every weekday and the street parking signs say that work will continue through the end of December.”

Thanks for being so thorough!

1514 S. 9th

Permits filed with the city say the building will house a “business/professional office” in the live-work space.

Whatever it is, it’s surely better than a vacant building.

Why have so many big windows been covered up over the years? Because buildings are being used for storage?

The owner, Michael Murray, plans to add a third story and a roof deck with a pilot house, plus four parking spots in the garage using the existing curb cut. Multi-family residencies, as well as business and professional uses for tenant buildings, are prohibited in this zoning district. That’s why Murray and Vincent Mancini, owner of the project’s architectural firm, Landmark Architectural Design, were compelled to come before the committee.

GCT owner Sara Selepouchin just moved that operation into a new Passyunk Avenue storefront, sharing the space with her new Occasionette gift shop. The office, for a time also was a tailor, if we remember correctly.

Aversa has a ton of East Passyunk clients – Ms. Goody’s Cupcakes, Headhunters saloon, Noir, many more – and has been hosting social media workshops for Passyunk businesses in conjunction with the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District, which is another client. Those seminars will move from the BID office to there. They also plan to begin offering similar seminars to businesses that aren’t on the avenue.
