Daily Dose of Blairmont 181

  • 1408 Biddle Street (Union Martin LLC, May 2008, $125,000)

August 2008

Sharing the same city block as the time-ravaged Carr School, this little building stands isolated from most of Blairmont's holdings.

Two successive salons occupied the ground floor: If Looks Could Kill prior to 2003, and Mane Agenda from 2004 until the Blairmont buyout. The latter business undertook a remodeling of the street level storefront, repainted the building, and generally tidied up.

Now the business is gone, the last vestige of life on this block which stands so close to the active Carr Square housing complex. If McKee is buying here... what could he have in mind for the adjacent Carr School?
