Construction has started on top of Santucci’s on N. Broad St. The original building at 655 N. Broad street was designed as a manufacturing warehouse and was built at the turn of the 20th century. The building became Linton’s Restaurant for many years before becoming another restaurant, and then finally, Santucci's Original Square Pizza.
The building is semi-attached and is constructed of masonry, and board formed cast in-place concrete. The extent of the new design is to add another story above the existing warehouse, and to update the facade using red metal and fiber cement panel. The former warehouse above the pizza shop is an ideal space for 18 new apartment units, many of which are lofts. The high ceilings, industrial character, and close proximity to public transportation will surely attract many who wish to live in the shadow of downtown Philadelphia.
