    Courts Reverse the ZBA at 9th & Poplar - OCF Realty
    In case we need to jog your memory, Post Brothers is the party developing the property, and their plans include ground floor retail, 350 apartments, and 135 parking spaces. The renderings looked delightful and showed an effort to modernize a hundred year old building while keeping the building's age pretty obvious to anyone passing by.

Quaker warehouse project in North Philly clears latest legal hurdle

Days before the new year, the Inquirer reports that a judge ruled in favor of developer Post Brothers’s request for a mixed-use zoning variance to bring 350 residential units and retail to the 10-story warehouse at 900-58 N. 9th Street, which was zoned industrial.

    Quaker warehouse project in North Philly clears latest legal hurdle
    All is not lost when it comes to the Quaker warehouse in North Philly, a blighted building that has had to jump through legal hoops for its second lease on life. Now, it just inched closer to being converted in apartments and retail.
