“Dear East Falls Local, what is going on in the old Redeemer church building? I WANNA SEEEEE!!!!!” Well okay, then. Let’s have a look, shall we?
If you’ve followed us for any length of time, you’ll know we’re big fans of historic architecture. So is developer Gary Jonas – I know, I know, he’s still in the business of making money off our collective landscape but hear us out. He’s ultimately a preservationist, too, because his jam is repurposing old buildings, not tearing them down.
St. Bridget’s Lofts on Stanton, that’s a perfect example of how Gary kept the old school looking pretty much as it always has from the street – but inside, it was transformed into unique luxury apartments you can view in our walk-thru from 2015. All the units were quickly occupied, East Falls is a very desirable neighborhood, plus some people really do like to live in historic buildings.
