Empty and essentially unused for the last five years, the rebirth of this 152,000 square foot controversy magnet at 21st Street and Washington Avenue, the former Frankford Chocolate Company factory, once again seems in doubt.

In March, the Zoning Board of Adjustment approved a revised mixed residential-commercial plan for site designed by Campbell Thomas Architects. But the death of owner Tran Dinh Truong, the man whose visage graced the building since 2008, has put the project in doubt. The zoning approval is likely to be lost if the family doesn’t move on the project soon.
