Are You Going to the Divine Lorraine Groundbreaking Ceremony?

New, 2 comments

Wednesday. 1pm. Mayor Michael Nutter will be there. Will you?

The groundbreaking ceremony for Eric Blumenfeld's property is on.
This $44 million property will bring 126 apartments and 20,000 s.f. of retail space. The prospects are good that the next chapter will be as impressive as the last, where Father Divine created the first racially integrated hotel in 1948. And before that, when it was a luxurious place of repose for the wealthy in 1894.
