The Honey Grow in that rendering is actually just a logo being "borrowed" without consent.
Honeygrow's owner had confirmed that they do not plan to open another HoneyGrow there.

I have to check but that building may be historically certified to the extent that the Art Deco exterior can't be changed.

If it has city landmark status... A Old Navy can still incorporate it into their new store. But with ots interiors re-purposed to Old Navy's needs.

One example I know of. Its Exterior remain's the same. That is the Former
Louis Sullivan designed exterior of the Carson Pierre Scot Store. Is on the Chicago Loop's State Street. Chicago's original main shopping street. It now has the Mall type stores and still its Iconic Former Marshal FIELD'S store now a Macy's.

But the Landmark building of the former Carson's. Is now a TARGET store downtown. The EXTERIOR has landmark (certified) protection. Because of It's intricate Iron workings of designer Louis Sullivan, and Chicago windows above.

No reason a Old Navy in Philly... Can't keep that landmark Art Deco exterior too. It will have to.

Many of Chicago's Historic buildings would have been lost but for Preservationist. Its theaters WOULD HAVE BEEN LOST if not for the fight of preservationist. Now they are Chicago's Off Broadway district. Hard to believe. They almost lost the their iconic Chicago Theater even....

That Chicago Landmark building, looks like this today as a TARGET. Exterior the same preserved.

Maybe. Maybe not. I'm currently living in a building whose exterior can not be changed in any major way at all because of its historical significance.

Afaik, that building that this Old Navy is going into is not only the original site of WCAU radio but where the kernels of CBS were born.
