Tomorrow’s the night for King of Jeans meeting – we promise

Despite what you may have read last week (oops), the developer planning apartments for the King of Jeans building is going before the East Passyunk Crossing zoning committee tomorrow night to present his proposals.

Developer Max Glass wants to convert the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors into 12 apartments with retail on the first floor. He needs a variance because zoning only allows six apartments, so head to the EPX center at 1729 S 11th St. at 7 p.m. to show your support. The sale of the 10,000 square foot building, which was most recently listed for $819,900, hasn’t been finalized, so neighborhood support is key.

Just like last week, we’re still not sure what they plan to do with the glorious King of Jeans sign. Meanwhile, everything must go at the store, so if you want oversized jeans, used bikes, antique furniture, or need to sell your stuff on eBay, time’s running out.
Where did he get those fetching jeans? Oh

    I read he wants to charge $1000 for one-bedroom apartments up there. Those things better have central air, full-size washer/dryers, free internet, and individual private roof decks!

    How little do you really expect to pay for a decent apartment in the city?
