  • “Seemingly unmentioned for decades, the name ‘Hohenadel’ is currently being heard throughout East Falls in connection to two pending development projects,” reports NewsWorks. Felicite Moorman hopes to have her family moved in to their home on the 3600 block of Indian Queen Lane by Christmas. Built in the 1860s, the building was the home of the Hohenadel brewing family. Moorman is applying for a Federal Housing Administration loan of $537,000 in order to restore the Hohenadel House “to its 19th century grandeur.” The carriage-house will hopefully be rented out to another family, a financing decision that will in turn require a zoning variance. Secondly, just a few blocks up the hill, at Conrad Street & Indian Queen Lane, developer Mark Tirone will construct a dozen town houses at the former site of the Hohenadel brewery.
