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.
North Broad is booming, with developments big and small being announced on what seems like a weekly basis. Here, we've compiled all of the projects that are both under construction or still in the early planning stages.
The architectural committee of the Historical Commission approved plans for multiple LED signs to be installed on the historic theater.
The main tenant hasn’t formally been announced, but the owners are actively seeking other tenants to lease out the enormous historic building on North Broad Street.
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.
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 historic Philadelphia Metropolitan Opera House is undergoing a renovation after years of neglect. New renderings give us just a sneak peek of what we can expect of the building's new look—at least from the outside.
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.
