South Philly Co–Op Workspace opened last fall in the East Passyunk neighborhood of South Philadelphia. The space is located at 1738 South Pierce Street on the corners of 11th and Pierce. Their website reads,”The South Philadelphia Co-Op Workspace is a shared office space in the East Passyunk neighborhood of South Philadelphia. We offer affordable work spaces, networking opportunities, free wi-fi, and conference room access.” It looks like founding members Terence Buckley and Ian Toner will be using the space for their respective small businesses, Buckley Small Business Solutions and Toner Architects. The first of it’s kind in the neighborhood, membership for the space may not be too high. We loves the look it’s and think that this offers a comfortable and cozy professional environment for the freelancer stuck at home or in local coffee shops. To attract members, the Co-Op Workspace is offering a free first month to new members as a promotional deal. We first heard about this deal through the Passyunk Post. Membership rates are the following: Permanent Desk $300/month Unlimited Wi-Fi Conference Room: Unlimited 3 Days per Week $200/month Unlimited Wi-Fi Conference Room: Add $20/day if more than 3 days/week 1 Day per Week $85/month Unlimited Wi-Fi Conference Room: Add $20/day if more than 1 day/week Daily Rate $20/day member or $25 for non Unlimited Wi-Fi Not too shabby. We hope that business improves and memberships sells out quickly with this new promotional deal. All the above information and more can be found on their website. Live Love Philly loves that new, unique, and exciting businesses are flocking to East Passyunk and Passyunk Square. We hope that community members near and far support these efforts.

Local Groups Head Passyunk Avenue Clean Up

Passyunk SquareLitter and trash continue to be a problem throughout Philadelphia, especially in the smaller neighborhoods and communities. However, local groups have taken it upon themselves to work toward fixing the problem. One initiative that has made great progress in its quest to clean up has been led by the Passyunk Avenue Revitializaion Corps. A local non profit real estate development firm, the PARC leads the Passyunk Avenue Corporation Neighborhood Sidewalk Cleaning Program. This program runs in coordination with the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District and is managed by ABM Janitorial Services.

The primary focus of these efforts are on East Passyunk Avenue from Federal Street to Broad Street.  Passyunk Avenue is victim to the carelessness of passer bys and trash not properly bagged. This commercial corridor will be cleaned six days a week, twice per day. In addition, a surrounding residential area, bounded by Ninth Street (east), Snyder Avenue (south), South Broad Street (west), and Federal Street (north), will be cleaned two times a week. See a map of the service area to the right.

Passyunk Square Litter Control

Assigned Residential Areas

  • Zone 1 Tuesday & Thursday (once per day)
  • Zone 2 Wednesday & Friday (once per day)
  • Zone 3 Monday through Saturday (twice a day)
  • Zone 4 Monday through Saturday (twice a day)
  • Zone 5 Tuesday & Thursday (once per day)
  • Zone 6 Wednesday & Friday (once per day)

Local civic associations such as the Passyunk Square Civic Association are also joining this fight against trash by sending out employees to aid. PSCA Neighborhoods not being covered by the PARC in the above listed zones get cleaned almost daily.

Trash only brings more trash. As business and traffic only grow as Passyunk Square and the Avenue become more of a sought out destination, hopefully community members and visitors alike will start seeing a difference. What can you do? Bag trash properly, set out trash at appropriate times and above all else, don’t litter. Then, maybe the PARC can start focusing on some of their other initiatives such as fountain maintenance and neighborhood greening.
