This tall photo is brought to you by a tall building from the future. And by Dranoff Properties, who want to name this tall order the SLS International Hotel & Residences.
It will have 152 hotel rooms, with interior design by your favorite starchitectural figure, Philippe Starck. Starting on the 20th floor, there will also be 90 condo units. Residents will be able to fully use the hotel amenities, like the concierge, valet, housekeeping, and a 75' pool.
The site was owned by Kenny Gamble, who owned the former home of Philadelphia International Records. RIP, PIR. That building had pretty bones. But out with the old. In with the sophisticated and freakin' pricey (most likely). A picture of the building-no-more is below.
