After more than 10 years of failed proposals and almost 20 years as a vacant structure, the historic National Products building in Old City will finally see new life as a six-story apartment building with 192 units. There are also plans for lower-level retail and underground parking. According to Philly.com, a developer has applied for permits to begin dismantling the site for construction. The building's infamous orange facade will also be dismantled and rebuilt. Before demolition can begin on the site, licenses and inspections staff will have to review an application by the building's owner.
