South Broad Street is no longer just home to a cluster of theaters, gas stations, and dive bars. Today, there are multi-million dollar development projects in the works, ranging from high-rise hotels to luxury apartment buildings to condo towers.
As the Inquirer’s architecture critic Inga Saffron recently put it, the Avenue of the Arts has “now morphed into the Avenue of the Apartments.”
The residential development boom on South Broad comes nearly a decade after developer Carl Dranoff first brought the Symphony House, the pink condo tower, to South Broad. Dranoff, who has even more projects in the works for this strip, said of South Broad Street last year, “I think the story the next decade will be where South Philly meets Center City.”
Here are 10 projects currently under construction or in the pipeline, poised to bring continued transformation to South Broad. Did we miss a project? Hit the tipline or leave a comment!
