A Wawa Maybe?

Naked Philly reports that a developer will be demolishing the Omega Pizza building and building a new mixed use building. Article is here, and below.

Wawa Coming Soon to 22nd & South?

On the first floor of a new mixed use building
Mr. Fox

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.
Current view
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 (!!!).
The parking lot next door
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.
