Risky Business on Germantown Avenue

Ken Weinstein, known for his redevelopment projects in Mt. Airy, is now turning his gaze to Germantown - he is currently one of the larger property owners along Germantown Avenue, having already invested $18 million. "Germantown is still high-risk, low-cost, as far as development goes," Weinstein said in a recent interview. "It's not hot yet, but it's growing. Mount Airy shows what Germantown could be...we are hell-bent on removing blight and renovating or restoring vacant commercial properties in what used to be the second busiest business corridor in the city as recently as the 1950s."
