Not so fast.
Remember the abandoned “South Philadelphia Shipping Center” building on the corner of 13th and Snyder Avenue?
Well, it’s being renovated. After we posted about an architect’s office coming to Snyder and Juniper, we kept hearing rumors that a coffee shop was going to the 13th Street corner. But unfortunately, the “For Rent” signs in the window indicate it is still available, which the owner of the building confirmed.
The good news is that if you want to open a coffee shop there, you still can. You can rent the 1,000 square foot storefront for $1,400 per month and/or the second floor 1,000 square foot apartment for $1,200 per month. The owner said “everything is brand new” inside.
Interested? Check out this space so we can expand East Passyunk to Snyder and beyond.
