Philadelphia, at one point, was home to more than 450 breweries, many of them in the Brewerytown section of Philadelphia. One of the most impressive, stood at the heart of Brewerytown and the notable architecture still exists.
The former F.A. Poth Brewing Company at 31st and Jefferson Streets in Brewerytown is one of the last remaining 19th-century brewery structures in Philadelphia and a beautiful example of the Rundbogenstil-style industrial architecture designed by architect Otto C. Wolf. F. A. Poth Brewing was one of the largest breweries of its day, with an annual output of over 180,000 barrels at the height of its success. In comparison, most other breweries were producing under 50,000/year.
On January 25, 2018 MM Partners acquired the historic building and began predevelopment on this amazing structure. The development plan entails a historically accurate redevelopment, creating 128 loft apartments, 25,000 square feet of commercial space, tenant amenities and indoor car and bike parking.
