Beauty and the Best Laid Plans

The recent appearance of two new businesses (an auto shop and a beauty supply store) on the 1900 block of Washington Avenue have some wondering if this spells trouble for the various ambitious redevelopment plans aimed at the avenue. The area is still zoned for industrial use, so the arrival of these two new enterprises, in addition to a planned storage facility at 23rd, shouldn't come as a surprise. But they are also large and inescapable reminders that it might take a little while longer for Washington Avenue's renaissance to come to pass. [Naked Philly] - Megan Ritchie Jooste
