While we continue to wait for the apartment building’s return—it won't be officially finished for another year or so—it’s worth remembering what the storied Divine Lorraine lobby once looked like at its peak.
After 40 years, the neon red signs that sit atop the historic building have been lit, shining up and down North Broad Street. The sign-lighting marks a little over a year since the Divine Lorraine’s groundbreaking.
The development will bring 478 apartments and retail space to the empty lot
After months and months of work, the restoration of the grand lobby is complete.

With about 55 apartments still up for grabs, the historic building is opening up its doors on February 4 for an open house.
The 3-bedroom home has been updated over the years with salvaged materials like the Divine Lorraine doors and Victorian trim.
The $40M+ restoration of the Divine Lorraine continues with the recent unveiling of the front facade. Meanwhile, future residents are preparing to move in as early as January 1.
Due to rain, the sign-lighting ceremony has been pushed back a week. Everyone is invited to the big block party, which will feature live music, drinks, games, and the lighting of the two iconic signs that sit atop the historic hotel.
In addition to multiple restaurants, there are plans for a fitness center, retail boutique, and community lounge.
The folks behind Global Foto Archive found an original hotel slip that reveals the guest’s name and nightly rate during the 1940s.
Yesterday you might have caught our private tour of the Divine Lorraine on Curbed Philly’s Facebook page. If you watched, you’ll know that two of the apartments in the historic hotel are now complete.
The construction company working on the project shared a slew of photos with Curbed Philly, revealing nearly finished kitchens and bathrooms on various floors of the 11-story historic building.
Everyone wants to "live in a landmark"
Last week while on a tour of the historic hotel we learned that the apartments would be complete by the end of the year. And yesterday, a Craigslist ad was posted advertising a pre-leasing special for 1- and 2-bedroom units.
