Smell, Shop and Sip through these neighborhoods…

Passyunk Square, Queen Village and Bella Vista, respectively.

What used to be home to South Philadelphia Florists is now on the market. Including the 4 apartments in the same building. Located at 10th and Wharton, the asking price on this property is a pretty penny, coming in at close to $590K. All four apartments are included in the asking price but notes suggest that the floral shop could be sold separately. This location is a high foot traffic area as Pat and Geno’s are right down the block across from the active Capitolo Playground. So who wants to stop and smell the flowers?!

Flowers on your mind?! Maybe you’d like to invest in a smaller space – formerly a flower shop and private residence. An ideal location right across from the singing fountain in East Passyunk, this listing iz zoned for commercial use  and could be used in a variety of ways (commercial on three floors, commercial on first and second with living quarters on the third floor, etc., etc…) Options are endless! This might be the best location in all of Passyunk Square! All it needs is your vision and some TLC. Please view more info on this listing or contact Larry Levin.
