Office district rising north of Center City, built of beer, barbecue and exposed brick

So far, Arts & Crafts has renovated the seven-story former medicine warehouse at 990 Spring Garden St. that had long served as drably appointed office building for city agencies, playing up its mushroom columns and polished cement floors.

Nearby, at 448 N. 10th St., the former Haverford Cycle Co. building has also been converted into offices, with tenants that include Made Institute, a state-licensed fashion-design academy that moved from Old City, and a branch of Kismet, a shared-office operator with a space in Chestnut Hill.

And 1025 Hamilton St., an industrial building most recently used as a mixed-martial-arts studio, is now home to Love City Brewing Co. on its ground floor, with office tenants including Momentary Ink — an online seller of temporary tattoos — in the space above.

...by property investor Mark Rubin, including the Northern Saving Fund & Safe Deposit Co. building at 600 Spring Garden St., where Stephen Starr operated a nightclub in the late 1980s and 1990s...

Also included was a large tract at 444 N. Third St. that already has zoning permissions for a pair of residential high-rises that Rubin commissioned architect Cecil Baker to design. Grossman said the group has no immediate plans to embark on that project or any other new construction.

    Office district rising north of Center City, built of beer, barbecue and exposed brick
    A craft brewery in a warehouse last used as a martial arts studio. A fashion-design and sewing school in a factory where bicycles were once assembled. A restaurant bound for a long-empty quick-lube garage. To a casual passerby, these might look like signs of a neighborhood coming into its own.

'I'm not angry,' says Mariya Plekan, 5 years after losing legs in Salvation Army building collapse

Plekan said she attends Mass at the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, at 830 N. Franklin St., because it is not crowded and she can maneuver her wheelchair. And a short distance...

For the next four years, Plekan’s life consisted of shuttling between the hospital and her new home at St. Ignatius Nursing & Rehab Center, at 4401 Haverford Ave. in West Philadelphia.

    'I'm not angry,' says Mariya Plekan, 5 years after losing legs in Salvation Army building collapse
    June 5 is the date when Mariya Plekan exchanged her identity - Ukrainian immigrant, widow, mother of two, grandmother - for the title of "Miracle on Market Street," the last survivor pulled from the thrift store rubble. - Joseph A. Slobodzian, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News

    In the emerging Callowhill neighborhood, making their bid for a Business Improvement District
    The old factory district between Vine Street and Spring Garden is one of the last Center City-adjacent neighborhoods pocked by empty lots and vacant storefronts. Many have tried to name the area - Chinatown North, the Eraserhood, the Loft District, Callowhill - but it still feels like an in-between space.
