705/707 South 50th Street

Two classic West Philadelphia rowhouses, long ago converted to commercial use and adjacent to the bustling Dock Street Brew Pub in the former Firehouse at 50th Street and Baltimore Avenue, were purchased and redeveloped by the owner of the Firehouse.  Many of the original features were long gone or severely altered; the few remaining elements were saved and restored where possible, as in the charming side porch on 707 South 50th Street.  Interiors were updated and are now leased to a variety of community-based small businesses and non-profits.
