    Fishtown Factory to Become Philly's Newest Music Venue

    A former metal factory in Philadelphia's Fishtown community is being transformed into a new entertainment venue. Many hope this will give the neighborhood a new hot spot. NBC10's Drew Smith has more. (Published Thursday, April 16, 2015)

    The former Ajax Metal Co. in Fishtown will reportedly be converted into a $32 million entertainment and concert venue to be operated by Live Nation.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer said the project at the shuttered factory across Delaware Avenue from the SugarHouse Casino at Frankford Avenue will include two music venues under one roof — a two-level, 2,500-person-capacity concert hall called the Fillmore and the separate 450-patron Foundry club (plus bars and restaurant). The facility will be run by the House of Blues Entertainment (HoBE) division of Live Nation.

    The 141,000-square-feet facility will be called Penn Treaty Village and will join other attempts to revitalize that portion of Fishtown.
