Two local developers plan to break ground at the old Edison High School site next month.
Mosaic Development Partners and Orens Brothers Real Estate Inc. will start work May 4 on an $11 million project at Seventh Street and Lehigh Avenue, according to the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development has already set aside a $1.5 million loan through its Business in Our Site program. The property has been vacant since 2002 and was further damaged by a fire last year.
The new development will have a shopping center and affordable housing for seniors.
