Free water ice to celebrate new diner construction at 40th and Baltimore

Posted on 17 July 2017

Construction of a new restaurant, the Trolley Car Station, began last month at 40th and Baltimore. To celebrate the beginning of this major University City construction, which is part of the Trolley Portal Gardens project, the public is invited to enjoy free water ice from the Trolley Car Ice Cream Shoppe.

The event will be held on Wednesday, July 19, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at 40th and Baltimore.

The construction of the new two-story 125-seat restaurant (see rendering below), is expected to be completed in Spring 2018. The company that owns the Trolley Car Diner in Mount Airy will operate the restaurant.

    This looks nice. I hope they build some outdoor seating into the plan. There appears to be a balcony on the second floor and that would make great outdoor seating away from pedestrians and standersby.

    On another note, I wish SweetGreens would open a store in the empty retail location at 47th & Baltimore. That would be great!
