  • Naked Philly lauds a mixed-use project–of which its parent company is the broker for–at the intersection of Titan Street & Point Breeze Avenue, now under construction after the resolution of three years of forestalling litigation. In that time, the originally selected retailer (a pharmacy) has gone out of business, and developers have hinted that water ice may be opening in its place. While “seven homes could have been built here by right,” the blog explains OCF Realty’s interest in facilitating this venture as a means of multiplying the impact of the development that itself has proliferated in the Point Breeze neighborhood.
