Brewerytown is Boomin’ Tour
Last Friday, a few of us took a break from the grind and headed over to Brewerytown to see some of our newest projects taking shape for MM Partners. MM as you may know, has been developing/redeveloping block by block, that part of the city just north of Fairmount Ave. The neighborhood is ripe for good development; it’s a great location close to the Art Museum, Fairmount Park and Center City, it has a nice commercial avenue on Girard Ave, a trolley line, and most importantly, it’s affordable. It’s really a clean slate as far as redevelopment is concerned and the neighborhood has been very receptive to MM’s plans according to Jacob Roller.
MM has gotten noticed by the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Business Journal recently as well. We’re happy to be a part of their team on their latest projects. We toured Cambridge Row; Three townhouses on, wait for it, Cambridge St. and 30 Baltz on, wait for it, 30th and Baltz Street, and their upcoming project Girard27, uh you guessed it, 27th and Girard! Their new Braverman building, a 5 story mixed use project, is the first to take advantage of new zoning along Girard Ave which allows them to go up higher than most existing buildings along the strip. The tour ended at their latest venture, Sarah’s Place, a former nuisance bar that was recently rehabbed and made “new” again or at the very least cleaned up. Much of its original character has remained unchanged. Here are some snaps.
