There’s a property rental on the market that could be a great site for a new business in Newbold, a space that the listing says could be an “edgy, hipster-style bar or restaurant.”
The old Abbotts dairy building at 1715 McKean St. looks like a prime spot for a new use, just around the corner from the under-construction ReNewbold development and not far from South Philly Tap Room. It’s also got some good bones.
The space is about 3,000 square feet and going for $2,750 a month. The listing suggests some other possibilities as well:
This first floor space lends itself to a variety of uses — edgy, hipster-style bar or restaurant, dance or yoga studio, photographer’s studio, art gallery, retail store, coffee house or professional offices for doctors, dentists, accountants or lawyers. The space has a brand-new,white maple tongue-in-groove wood floor installed on the diagonal. Landlord will finalize fit-out to suit. Brand-new gas heat, central air conditioning, floor-to-ceiling windows. Three entrances, one with ADA-compliant ramp. Parking available in rustic, landscaped, cobblestone courtyard under camera surveillance and LED security lighting.
Or, instead of parking, maybe you could turn that courtyard into an outdoor beer garden? This place is big enough it could house a brew pub.
Any investors out there just dying to put their money into something cool?
