Two of the buildings currently house a dollar store in a conjoined storefront, and the third has Jillayne’s Boutique, which just opened this spring shortly after the “Mob-Wife”-owned Addiction boutique closed.
The buildings, which are 1709, 1711 and 1713 S. 12th St., at Passyunk and Watkins, also include four apartments. The listing had said that all the residential leases were month to month, providing “potential for significant increase in rental income.”
We’re not quite sure what’s going to happen with the buildings, though a reader told us yesterday that some stucco work was being done on the Watkins Street side. We couldn’t get in touch with the owner of Jillayne’s to see what’s up, and a message left at the dollar store wasn’t returned.
The city’s property records have not yet been updated to include the sale, so we’re not sure who bought it.
The realtor listed on the signs told us yesterday she would pass along our contact information to the buyer, but we haven’t heard back yet.
The sold properties are next door to the new Palo Santo wellness boutique, which opened in April. Incidentally, the building one door up from that at Morris Street with furniture store Interior Concepts has been taken off the market. Apparently, $2.9 million may have been a bit much.
