Bencardino has begun a new demolition project near the intersection of Cottman and Castor Avenues in Northeast Philadelphia. For this project the Bencardino team will demolish most of an underutilized strip mall that sits behind the old Lit Brothers Department store right at the corner of Castor and Cottman avenues. The remaining buildings that are not demolished will become a part of the retail center that will occupy the space. The old Lit Brother’s department store that currently occupies the site is undergoing a complete face life and will house three separate stores each on their own floor.
