THE "brew-haha" sparked by a Point Breeze developer who cleaned up a debris-strewn city lot next to his coffee shop may soon be settled.
"I'm considering an option to lease the property, where my office will take over 100 percent liability of the lot and maintain it as public space," Ori Feibush, who transformed the lot without the city's permission, said Thursday.
The lease would remain in effect until the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority sells the lot.
Feibush has made no bones about the fact that he's been trying to buy it.
"We want to make sure there is an open bidding process and that when the property does go up for auction, language [in the agreement] will require it to go to the highest bidder," Feibush said.
