A piece of Philly movie history is getting a major overhaul. According to the local real estate blog Rising Real Estate, Rocky Balboa’s gym “Mighty Mick’s” is set to be renovated into mixed -use apartments.
The blog which is ran by local agent Kyle McShane states “A zoning permit was issued last week for the renovation of 2145 N. Front Street. This triangular corner building that sits under the El in Kensington is the site of Mighty Mick’s Gym. In the series, the gym was owner by Mickey Goldmill, Rocky’s trainer in the first three movies.
The building will be converted into 4 apartments with a 1,276 square foot ground floor commercial space. Large windows will be installed on the ground level lining the commercial space. The project will also entail adding a roof deck to the structure,” the blog states
No timeline has been set but this project is definitely going to draw mixed-reactions from local residents. Stay tuned for more details.
