A converted church in Fishtown that was once planned for demolition just had its asking price chopped by $20,100. We reported last week that the developers put the property at 1775 Frankford Avenue on the market after purchasing it last October for $1 million.
Initially, the developers had pulled permits to demolish the converted church and build duplexes on the site. After local residents protested, the property was put back on the market. Real estate agent Jim Robertson told Curbed Philly that while the developers were looking into renovating the apartments instead, they were also looking for interested buyers to take the property off their hands.
Hidden City Philadelphia also reported that the developers, Jon J. and Stephen Levitt, have set a deadline for buyers to come forward by March 20.
