Abandoned 13th and Snyder building finally getting renovated

The abandoned building next to Nick’s Charcoal Pit on SnyderAvenue seems to be getting a facelift. According to this listing on Trulia, the building at 1244 Snyder Avenue was sold on Dec. 4 for $205,000

Finally some activity at 1244 Snyder Ave

The old “South Philadelphia Shipping Center” sign is still attached to the side of the building, although that business hasn’t been open for quite some time. The building has been boarded up for years, so this is great news for this part of Snyder.

Construction workers began working on the building this week, but no permits were posted outside, and nothing was listed on the city’s website.

Maybe it’s just getting gutted right now for a better use in the future. Now if we can just get some activity in the old medical supply store half a block away, the East Passyunk boom can start spreading onto Snyder and beyond. Here’s hoping.

    Great News! Snyder Ave has so much potential. Hopefully the East Passyunk boom spreads along that area as well

    Wonder what’s going in there… Hopefully the original features of the facade are restored instead of removed. Agreed: Snyder Ave does have a lot of potential!

    Also the old Moskowitz Upholstery space at 12th and Snyder is for rent, right next to the new Dakini Tattoo place.
