Fort Washington Train Station — For Rent
SEPTA has been making improvements. But the downside of spiffy new platforms and new station buildings is that the charming old stations are left sitting beside the rails awaiting a new purpose (or, worst case scenario, demolition).
The Fort Washington Train Station (see map here) was built in 1903 for the Reading Railroad. It’s located near the junction of Interstate 276 and Route 309. Nearby is the Fort Washington office park and hotels, several residential neighborhoods, Germantown Academy, Friendly’s, Wawa, and Rich’s Deli. The recent station project included building a section of trail in anticipation of a trail link to Fort Washington State Park.
The building will be renovated this fall. It’s available for a monthly rental of $950. Have a creative idea? [It would make a great art/craft studio and shop -- perfect for someone who primarily sells on Etsy or at shows, and craves a creative getaway from home where they can focus and leave things messy. Take a break with tea in front of the fireplace on a chilly day? Sounds perfect!] Cafe au Lait opening soon!
[Sadly, they ripped out the old benches that could have been banquette seating, have painted the space that awful mauve color that seems so popular in public areas (I don't understand why) and have blocked the fireplace with the service area. Why?! Sadly, it's no Dollop. Phil, we need you here! Bring pie!]
