A Tour

204-206 East Girard Avenue
204-206 East Girard Avenue
While I am impatiently waiting for an answer from zoning today, I thought I would put together a tour of the buildings in their current state.

I have lived in Philly since 1988 and have fallen in love with many of the vacant, dilapidated buildings in this town. Over the years, I have ridden my bike past these rotting, architecturally beautiful buildings while renovating them in my mind.

This is how I felt when I first saw these buildings. It was love at first sight. I think many people would be scared away by the advanced water damage, but I saw amazing natural light, a great layout and lots of potential.


Each building is 3 stories with a storefront on the first floor and an apartment on the 2nd and 3rd floors.

The first floor storefront on 204 East Girard Ave. will be the future YIKES office. The first floor will be all office space with a room in the back for storage/printers/copier/etc. We will also have a side yard for breaks and grilling. The basement will be turned into a kitchen, bathroom and conference room.
