Additionally, there is a large storage area behind the 2nd building.

Curb traps & vent pipe on both the storm & sewer vent lines under the sidewalk were replaced April 26, 2021. On the same week in 2021, Gas lines under curb for the entire property were checked for leaks by PGW with compressed air. August 2021, sewer + storm drains under the driveway & basement were replaced. Additionally, in 2021 the property had a treatment for termites good for 10 years.

Zoned RSA-3 and that can be changed through a Court Process if needed via:


L&I said they would approve a zoning change to "C" commercial, because of a grandfather clause on the street, and also because we are in the center of the BUSINESS DISTRICT. Though you should call L&I them 1st and tell them what type of business you want to put there. They'll say no to high traffic retail, but yes to a business with low visitors; such as a Lawyer, Insurance Company, Accountant, Real Estate Company, or similar, etc.

Business street signage can be erected upon a community process via - Greater Bustleton Civic League. The community needs to approve your new street sign design & words.

Values increased greatly in this zip code since COVID 19, as a lot of people moved out of Center City apartment buildings and into singles. There are NO ROW HOMES IN THIS ZIP CODE.

In 2021, we were 1 of 60 businesses in Philadelphia that competed in the Philadelphia Flower Show's "Bloom Philly Contest" which raises awareness to the upcoming main event, the largest & oldest Flower Show in America, ...thus explaining the 200 landscaping photos which show our 260 nursery pots surrounding the property landscaping. SEE LINK AT END FOR 250 PHOTOS.

Your basically buying Commercial, but paying a Residential Mortgage % Rate.

As an example at 3.25% with 10% down, your payments are $1,400 a month. This is much cheaper than a retail store lease on Grant Ave., and this property is 10 times larger than the average stores on this street.

This property is priced $250k to $500k less than the "commercials" sold on Castor Ave & Bustleton Ave. We are much larger, and in a better neighborhood. We have plenty of room to build a very large addition in the backyard.
