Yards Brewing Co. has approvals in place for its move to the former Destiny Maternity Corp. warehouse property in Northern Liberties.

Northern Liberties Neighborhood Association zoning chairman Larry Freedman said Thursday that his group and the city's zoning board had cleared Yards' proposal to take space at the maternity apparel company's former headquarters building at Fifth and Spring Garden Streets.

Yards plans to occupy 70,000 square feet with a brewery, tasting room and event space at the site.

Yards founder and president Tom Kehoe and other brewery staff plan a roughly three-quarter-mile procession on Thursday afternoon to the new location from their current 38,000-square-foot space near the Delaware River at Poplar Street, to celebrate the coming move.

The event's tag line: "Kehoe's crossing of the Delaware (Avenue)" 

It was not immediately known when the new location would open for business.
