Broad and Snyder Wendy’s plans include maintaining original structure, installing takeout window

When we first told you about the plans for a Wendy’s to open in the former Beneficial Bank building at Broad and Snyder, the majority of responses from the neighborhood were negative. Of all things that could go into a historic building, why a Wendy’s?

At the South Broad Street Neighborhood Association meeting on Tuesday, there was not as much vocal objection as expected, according to SBSNA president, Peter Zutter. Wendy’s does have plans to maintain the original detailing of the structure while bringing another fast food spot to this corner.

Officials from the neighboring St. Rita of Cascia Shrine, which would manage the center, told the South Broad Street Neighbors Association that they plan to build a 20-foot-high detached structure that would contain offices for counseling, meeting space and a large community room. Twenty parking spaces would go behind it, between the building and Carlisle Street.

Peter Zutter, president of the SBSNA, said the presentation was not well-received. “No problems with the type of uses, in fact quite good support for the concept, but the one story building of cheap materials did not go over well,” he said. “It is unfortunate that they did not talk to us sooner as it seems they have mostly completed design.”

The South Broad Street Neighbors Association will hear a proposal for The Philadelphia Arts Market tomorrow night, Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. at Methodist Hospital, 2301 S. Broad St., in the Morgan Conference Room on the basement level. To be clear, this project is in its infancy and not a done deal.

The market, which would operate on weekends from March to September, would “feature dozens of craft makers, farmers market and flea market vendors, the city’s best food trucks, and a stage for area student and musical performances (School of Rock, University of the Arts etc).”

Armory’s replacement now includes commercial space; developer to present tomorrow

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.
