Last month, YIMBY unveiled the UPS package sortation and distribution facility proposed at 1 Red Lion Road in Bustleton, Northeast Philadelphia. The 1,004,000-square-foot structure is currently the city’s largest single proposed building in terms of floor area. A few days ago, the development team of Commercial Development Company, Inc, Blue Rock, Bohler, and NORR submitted a revised Civic Design Review package, which shows design changes that deal mainly with landscaping at the 140-acre site and the way the facility will relate to the surrounding residential neighborhood.
Demolition permits have been filed for a two-story detached house at 9065 Pine Road in the Bustletown neighborhood in Northeast Philadelphia. The suburban-style house sits on a large, verdant property and likely dates to the prewar period. The plot sits close to the corner of Pine Road and Christopher Drive, about 400 feet away from the city’s western border. The property is under ownership of Neil H. Horner.
