Craig LaBan lists Triple Bottom Brewing among “the best bars to drink at in Philly right now”

Just when I think the Beer Bubble is about to burst, more breweries open to reignite our limitless hop-timism. New since summer: the Spring Garden Beer District got another entry with Triple Bottom Brewing (915 Spring Garden St., 267 764-1994); Kensington landed Punch Buggy Brewing Co.  (1445 N American St.); and Dock Street South (2118 Washington Ave., 215-337-3103) became a new piece in Washington Avenue’s ongoing transformation.

Apartment Building Under Construction on Ridge With Great Views of Vacant Lot – OCF Realty

View from the south

There’s a new apartment building under construction at 1111 Ridge Ave., a five-story edifice that will have 18 units and commercial space on the first floor. Construction is moving along pretty well, with the exterior fully framed and the windows already installed. We couldn’t tell you what business to expect on the first floor, but given the restaurants and the excellent concert venue around the corner on Spring Garden Street and the numerous ongoing projects in the area, we can imagine several possible tenants making it work at this location. And while we can’t quite tell what the finished product will look like, we do know that the building will have a rather unique appearance, thanks to the angled frontage on Ridge.
