Acme Markets intends to build a 1.4-million-square-foot warehouse and distribution complex near Reading, worrying leaders of the union that represents the company's warehouse workers in Philadelphia. Acme, operated by American Stores Inc., has two warehouses in Philadelphia that together employ about 750 in about 1.1 million square feet, according to Jim Brennan, president of the warehouse workers' union, Teamsters Local 169. The local, fearing that Acme plans to move those operations out of the city, will hold an informational meeting this morning at its headquarters.

A five-alarm fire engulfed a warehouse and four condominium apartments in Margate just before dawn yesterday, destroying the homes of four families and slightly injuring a police officer. The Atlantic County prosecutor was investigating the cause of the fire, which broke out about 5:35 a.m. in a construction warehouse at 108 N. Decatur Ave. A man from the warehouse ran up to Police Sgt. Edwin McMeekin and asked for help in evacuating two other men, who were sleeping in a small room in the warehouse.

About 60 elderly tenants of the Cooper Valley Village Condominiums complained to the Edgewater Park Township Committee last night of being awakened in the early morning hours by noise from a nearby warehouse operation. Barbara Horowitz, president of the condominium association, said she had received complaints from residents over the last seven months about Safety Kleen Inc. of Mount Holly, which leases an adjacent Bridgeboro Road warehouse and uses the building as a distribution center for industrial cleaning supplies.

A development plan for a 40,000-square-foot warehouse on Hansen Access Road won unanimous approval from the Upper Merion supervisors Monday night.

The apartments proposal was on the agenda of last night's Planning Commission meeting. The warehouse property, on 5.2 acres, and the residential parcel are owned by the Gambone Bros. Development Co. of Fairview Village.

Citing concerns for health and safety, two area congressmen want to put $9.7 million in the next federal budget to build a warehouse for flammable materials at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. Reps. Thomas M. Foglietta (D., Pa.) and Curt Weldon (R., Pa.) this week asked the subcommittee on military installations and facilities of the House Armed Services Committee to authorize $9.7 million in fiscal 1990 to replace a 50-year-old storage building. They said the warehouse, which holds flammable materials such as paints, solvents and metal cleaners, poses a threat to the environment because it is next to a basin that flows into the Schuylkill and, ultimately, the Delaware River.

There is no greenhouse at the Plant Outlet in Bala Cynwyd. The large stock of house plants is crowded into a nearly windowless warehouse where most of the illumination comes from overhead fluorescent lights, rather than daylight. Also missing is the controlled humidity usually found in greenhouses. The Plant Outlet's owner, Harvey Oxenfeldt, views all this as an advantage. His plants are already accustomed to the conditions in a home or office, which are vastly different from those in the greenhouses where house plants are grown.

More horns honked on the road leading to the Strawbridge and Clothier furniture warehouse yesterday. That's the only change since eight workers from the Teamsters local took over the plant Saturday to protest the loss of 95 union jobs when S&C is sold to May Department Stores Co. Officials at May couldn't be reached for comment, but with the official completion of the sale yesterday, the peaceful tone of the conflict might change as May's...

By Al Taubenberger The roots of our nation can be found here in Philadelphia. It's fitting, then, that the roots of a promising new agricultural industry - vertical farming - are taking hold right here, not in soil but in water inside an unassuming warehouse in South Philadelphia. I recently hosted a City Hall news conference to promote the expansion of vertical farming, with the goal of establishing Philadelphia as the world's preeminent training center for this burgeoning business.

Philadelphia police are seeking three men who snuck into a North Philadelphia warehouse last week and stole 24 cases of cigarettes worth about $64,000, police said Monday. In a video released by police, three men are seen approaching the warehouse on the 100 block of East Hunting Park Avenue with a ladder at about 2:35 a.m. Friday. In the dark, they pried open a rear door, then went inside and stole the loot, police said. They then fled in an unknown direction. A black market in "loosies" and cheaper butts has expanded after the city imposed an additional tax of $2 a pack to help fund schools.

SEPTA and Amtrak service service has resumed Thursday evening with residual delays in Northeast Philadelphia after a warehouse fire along the tracks in the city's Holmesburg section was declared under control, officials said. Just before 5:30 p.m., a fire was reported at a two-story brick warehouse in the 7700 block of Edmund Street. SEPTA's Trenton line was suspended through the area and Amtrak trains were halted from going through the area as firefighters battled the blaze.

A century after it opened as a Ford assembly plant, 29 years after it was abandoned, the distinctive triangular building looms lonely at the seedy intersection of Broad and Lehigh, like the last vestige of a once-thriving forest. But while automobiles, military helmets, and men's suits were manufactured there during its 72-year working existence, the strikingly beautiful structure's lasting legacy may be as a backdrop to local sports history. Anyone who's ever seen photos of Baker Bowl, the Phillies stadium that stood just across Lehigh Avenue, has seen the factory.

Plans are in motion to transform a historic warehouse on the Camden waterfront into a modern office building with retail space on the ground floor, a project the developer hopes to start by the end of the year. The building at 300 N. Delaware Ave., across the street from Campbell's Field and near the foot of the Ben Franklin Bridge, was built in the late 1800s as the site of the Ruby Match factory. Campbell's Soup later turned it into a food storage warehouse, but it has sat empty for years.

Nine years ago, New York-based investment-fund promoter CanAm Enterprises used money from overseas investors seeking U.S. visas to lend money to a hospice business in a sprawling Northeast Philadelphia office and warehouse complex. Six years later, CanAm took over the property while Home Care Hospice's operator fought Medicare-fraud charges that eventually got him a 14-year prison term. Now, CanAm, which has joined with Philadelphia Industrial Development Corp. on at least two dozen loans for job-creating businesses - may be closing the book on the troubled transaction.

The marketing materials for SoNo, a new "creative office space" being developed at Fifth and Spring Garden, depict a millennial's workday paradise. Softly colored renderings show handsome folks grabbing lunch from food trucks, dropping off bikes at a sleek storage room, and lounging around the amphitheater in a dramatic skylighted lobby. In the evenings, employees gather near a roof-deck fire pit to watch the sun set over the Center City skyline. Market Street's towers look like they're down the street.

EVERYONE HAS guilty pleasures. I have three: chocolate/peanut butter ice cream, reading Christine Flowers on Fridays and shopping at the dollar store. The first guilty pleasure is fattening, the second is incendiary, the third is awesome. Awesome? Dollar store? (Did I actually use awesome? Am I 25 again?) Before I proceed: How much would you have to steal from a dollar store before it would be a crime? This is why the dollar store is a pleasure - prices lower than a rat terrier with fallen arches.

MIKE EROH wasn't about to let being laid up at home stop him from doing his job. Mike was the senior home-delivery manager for the Daily News and Inquirer in South Jersey and he had a phone. While recovering from hernia surgery, Mike would get on that phone and call the warehouse in Turnersville, N.J., every day to find out what was going on, what the problems were and how to fix them. Unfortunately, Mike never made it back to work. He died Thursday of a massive heart attack.
