That big old building used to be the I. Goldberg company warehouse. At 13th and Chestnut, I. Goldberg is our fair city’s premier military surplus store. Back in their heydey they owned a warehouse at the corner of 12th and Latona Streets in the heart of East Passyunk.
And now it’s a pile of dirt.
According to our insider sources, the site was purchased for $825,000 in late 2011 and the new owner’s intent is for 12 to 13 townhomes selling in the range of $425,000 each. L&I’s mum on the matter, as are the locals at the watering hole, but QB3 is the listed architect. Rest assured, we will keep you updated with what we can find out when we find out about it.
Now, if only a certain building down the street could see some love…
