Wawa Coming Soon to 22nd & South? Thursday, July 7, 2016
On the first floor of a new mixed use building
If you've lived in the neighborhood for any amount of time, you've probably bought a six pack and a lousy slice of pizza at Omega Pizza on the northeast corner of 22nd & South. If you're a fan of the place you probably want to get there quickly, because it looks like the business is about to disappear.
Earlier today, we received news that the Omega Pizza building could soon be demolished and that developers have plans to build a new mixed use building on the site of the pizza place and the parking lot next door. The building will contain 20 residential units on its upper floors and in the 5000+ sqft retail space, the plans call for a new Wawa (!!!).
If you'd like more info on the project, the developers will be presenting this plan at a CCRA meeting at 7:00 PM on Tuesday July 26th at 2111 Sansom St. at the Stevens Community Center. In the meantime, we will try to get our hands on some renderings. But for now we think will go and grab a sixer at Omega while we still can.
