Tonight's Hot Ticket: What Should Be Done With North Broad?

Yup, it's another nerd-event scalper opportunity: The University of Pennsylvania School of Design Real Estate Club is hosting an event on the development of North Broad Street, which Nutter is making a centerpiece of his planning agenda in his second term. Tonight's panel will address the plans, and will include Eric Blumenfeld, one of the developers who's working to re-envision the Divine Lorraine as an arts and education campus. Blumenfeld is the developer responsible for 640 Lofts (home to Osteria) and 600 North Broad Street, currently under construction.

Other panelists:

Margaret Carney—Associate Vice President and Campus Architect, Temple University. In this recently created position, Ms. Carney is responsible for overseeing Temple's most recent master plan, Temple 20/20. As Temple expands its enrollment and physical presence, the institution's influence and importance on North Broad will only grow.

Brian Flanagan—Chief of Staff to the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development. Working with the Planning Commission and the Department of Commerce, Mr. Flanagan has worked to bridge public and private interests in redeveloping North Broad Street and the Reading Viaduct.

Moderator: Paul Levy—Chief Executive, Center City District. As the head of the Center City District, Mr. Levy has led efforts to transform Center City from a downtown business district into Philadelphia's favorite place to live, work, and play.

WHAT: Panel—What's Next For North Broad Street's Revitalization?
WHEN: Wed., March 21, 6pm
WHERE: University of Pennsylvania, Meyerson Hall, 34th and Walnut Streets, Room B3
