New Bok developer plans ambitious artistic mixed-use community with apartments, retail & more

Plans for the former Bok Technical School include live-work residences, art studios, ground-floor retail & “could include rooftop cinema and outdoor beer terraces.”

The sale of the school was approved Thursday night to Scout Ltd. LLC, which is run by Lindsey Scannapieco, the daughter of ultra-luxury Philadelphia developer Tom Scannapieco (so our last post about this was admittedly a bit off).

Scout envisions “a creative anchor for the burgeoning East Passyunk neighborhood featuring studios and live-work space for the maker community,” according to a news release, which noted ”plans to revive the 340,000 sqft space back to life as a center for design, entrepreneurship and fabrication.”
