A historic stable on North Broad is set to turn into a mixed-use apartment building, with the anticipated opening set for spring 2018.
Developer Daniel Greenberg of North Broad Living Management confirmed to Curbed Philly that the adaptive reuse plans for the historic E. Hart Stable are moving forward and will bring 41 apartments and 5,000 square feet of ground retail to 631 N. Broad Street.
The foundation and bracing work is complete, said Greenberg, and structural demolition is currently underway.
The update comes a couple of years after Naked Philly first reported on the adaptive reuse project. The plans haven’t changed much, if at all, since then.
The Italianate-style 30,000-square-foot E. Hart Stable was built in 1867, but the architect is unknown. It has served as the headquarters for many different businesses over its long history, but most recently was home to Calderwood Gallery. It was sold in 2015 for $2.5 million.
As the rendering reveals, Greenberg’s project will build a new seven-story addition to the existing structure with a roof deck. Retail will be located on the first floor, and the 41 apartments will be located on the second through seventh floors, according to an L&I permit.
When it opens in spring 2018, the project will join a long list of new developments taking shape along North Broad, from the Studebaker Building down the block to the Hanover North Broad mixed-use project on the other end.
