The new Pennypack Crossing older adult apartment building is starting to take shape in Holme Circle. Last week, the new owners and operators of the former Infant Jesus Convent told neighbors how they might qualify to live there.
The saga of the former Northeast Community Center took another twist recently when a for sale sign appeared in front of the 3/4-acre property at 2840 Holme Ave.
Facing declining membership and the rising cost of repairs to their home, the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth moved out of the 60-year-old Infant Jesus Convent in June 2013.
The former Northeast Community Center has a buyer who plans to bring a child daycare center and a meals on wheels program to the Holme Avenue site, according to Holme Circle Civic Association President Elsie Stevens.
