Groundbreaking imminent at the Shops at Schmidts

Get ready to say goodbye to Northern Liberties' largest vacant lot. Tower Investments intends to break ground next tuesday at 2nd and Girard on the first phase of the long-awaited Shops at Schmidts development. Half of the 100,000 square feet of retail space will be dedicated to a Pathmark supermarket, reputedly to be more upscale than its other stores. This development is key to filling in the gaps between Northern Liberties and Fishtown, while also aiding the resurgence of Girard Avenue itself.
