In March, we broke the story of two four-story buildings with condos and retail space on the lower level planned for the vacant lot at the corner of 13th & South. Since then, more development has begun with the Sansom Kabob House announcing their move from 1526 Sansom St. to the long-time vacant storefront at 1300 South St.
The Sansom Kabob House’s last day in their current location is today, with plans of opening in the new location in October. From the looks of the location, they clearly have their work cut out for them to open within that time frame.
In addition to the move of the Sansom Kabob House, there is more information on the condos being planned next to the soon-to-be Kabob House location. The condos will be called the Residence at Twelve40, with 21 condo units, 18 parking spaces and retail space on the street-level. The new buildings will unfortunately block the long-standing mural on the side of the former location of Harry’s Occult at 1238 South St. More information on the buildings can be found here.
Do you think these new changes will help to revamp the long-time vacant locations?
