Rumor Mill: Is a nail salon opening at 19th and Catharine?

Some work is being done to the property on the corner of 19th and Catharine Streets, which means a new retail spot will be opening in the vacant storefront.

There’s been some talk of a nail salon opening in the location, but nothing has been confirmed.

More on the property from Naked Philly:

Moving one more block to the west, we come to the northwest corner of 19th & Catharine. We checked in here a couple months ago, when the owners started working on the property after paying it little mind for a year or two. New window openings were getting cut and a former ice cream shop in the rear of the property was getting a new facade. Today, the building is still getting work done and we’ve learned that the first floor will be divided into two spaces with a single apartment above. We’ve heard rumblings about a nail salon, but nothing has been confirmed.

If not a nail salon, what would you like to see open here?

    Whatever it is, it needs more trees. This corner is so desolate and unwelcoming, the owner would be stupid not to line the corner with trees to be more inviting.
