The developers of the Whole Foods-anchored apartment building near the Philadelphia Museum of Art have a deal to buy the strip mall across Spring Garden Street from Yards Brewing Co. in Northern Liberties, with plans for a 13-story residential project at the site.
The plans by father-and-son development team Neal and Victor Rodin for 501-39 Spring Garden St. — now home to a Dollar General store and other retailers — call for 382 apartments and 60,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, said lawyer Matthew McClure, who is representing the Rodins on the project.
