The not-for-profit King Park Area Development Corp. is working on plans for a retail development at the vacant northeast corner of 22nd and Delaware streets.
The two-story project would be built to the sidewalks and include parking in the rear. The group hopes to land a retail tenant for the first floor (King Park members have been in talks with Ace Hardware). For the second floor, they're looking for a restaurant tenant that could take advantage of an outdoor terrace with skyline views.
King Park already is accepting construction bids for the roughly $2 million project. The architect, locally based A2SO4, was charged with designing a building that respects but does not replicate historic architecture.
