Upper floors will be used for the consumption of prepared foods and the drinking of wine. There will be no “commercial” kitchen on site.Concerns included parking, noise, truck deliveries, trash, trash removal, congestion and business hours (open 7 days a week) Proposed facility is to be 54’ tall (3 floors) with rooftop deck, currently awaiting Airport hazardous zone requirements. Since the proposed facility is adjacent to but not in the airport flight zone a more detailed review may have to be conducted by the Phila. Airport Authority.
