A couple of months ago, we told you that eleven town homes would soon be rising on the southeast corner of 2nd & Wharton, site of a warehouse fire back in December. According to several reports, this warehouse had been the site of several unlicensed activities, including an auto repair shop, and was far from beloved by many neighbors. And now, this building, which would have made such a wonderful apartment building as part of an adaptive reuse, is gone.

As you can see, in the place of the warehouse is a new hole, the first of several that will be dug in preparation for the new homes that will soon be constructed. We’ll check back here in the coming months, and give you some updates as Pennsport’s latest large residential development begins to sprout.
