Last summer, the vacant Henry F. Ortlieb Brewery was demolished. The brewery was a Northern Liberties landmark that dated back to the 1860s and also stood at the last brewery in area. Now, construction has begun on a brand new residential development, called Ortlieb Square, that will house 18 duplexes, each with two-car parking, as reported by Naked Philly. On the corner of 3rd and Poplar streets, there will also be a mixed-use building with ground-floor retail topped by three apartments. Extra parking will be located in the rear of the development via American Street.
