A Tenant for a Commercial Space on Point Breeze Ave. in a Building That May or May Not Get Built

Over a week ago, OCF Holdings presented a proposal for a new mixed-use building at the corner of Point Breeze Ave. & Titan Sts. at a somewhat-less-than-successful South Philadelphia H.O.M.E.S zoning meeting.

The project would establish a sizable, new construction commercial space on Point Breeze Ave. for the first time in what must be decades. The Breeze has historically been a vibrant commercial corridor, but has fallen on tough times in recent decades, and the commercial mix is definitely lacking.

At the meeting, some residents expressed a desire for a pharmacy, an amenity currently lacking on the Breeze. Ask and ye shall receive. Though the lease details are still being worked out, OCF Holdings has a tenant lined up for the commercial space and… it’s a pharmacy!

Yet there are still some people who don’t believe it should be built even though this building would be a tremendous step in any effort to revitalize Point Breeze Ave.  Click here to find out why and what lies ahead for this development project.

Will PharmDirect RX make its way to Point Breeze Ave.?

Hopefully this news will help the development get the necessary community support. Amazing that the ZBA would even consider vetoing this project! They are vacant, trash filled lots. It is completely ridiculous that wouldn't be approved because ?the neighbors like the vacant lots better?

Philadelphia needs to wake up and support hard working people that try to build their community and neighborhoods. It seems like the objectors are always the ones that have no purpose other than to detract from positive changes and progress. Anybody actually willing to invest in new construction in Point Breeze should be applauded and given all the suppport they need. The only alternative is continuing decline and blight. South Philly deserves better. LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN
