Philly Sears Demolition Makes Way for Office Project

Demolition crews, which have been working at the property for about two months, have begun tearing away the façade of the former Sears, Roebuck & Co. store on Admiral Wilson Boulevard.
The site, owned by Campbell Soup Co. of Camden, NJ, was acquired in June of last year for $3.5 million. The company plans to build an office park of between 250,000 square feet to 500,000 square feet at the property.
The building was built in 1927 and was home to Sears until 1971, when it closed. Since then it has been in progressive deterioration, worsened by a two-alarm fire in December, according to The Inquirer.
Campbell Soup officials say demolition work will be completed by the end of the summer. No start date has been set for construction on the office project.
