PHILADELPHIA | Broad & Washington | 100m | 30 fl | Pro

Another tower is set to sprout along South Broad St.


Blatstein Now Plans for Vertical Piazza on South Broad Street

Bart Blatstein has changed up his plans for the northeast corned of Broad Street and Washington Avenue. Those of you clamoring for more height and density may have gotten your wish. The plan now calls for a 30-story building filled with about 800 residential units with retail possibilities — think of it as a vertical Piazza at Schmidt's but on South Broad Street. When first announced, the idea was to build a large 45-foot tall retail complex complete with a Wegman's grocery store, movie theater and room for 1,000 parking spacing. The model has now changed and Blatstein credits the success of Carl Dranoff for one of the reasons we're seeing a new vision for the long derelict lot that used to hold outdoor showings of Cirque du Soleil. He told the Philadelphia Business Journal: 'Carl [Dranoff] has done a great job creating South Broad as a residential destination and I'm piggy-backing on Carl and all of the other developers who have done development around there.'
The old proposal: Now with 100% more tower!
