Blatstein Plans Soaring 33-Story Complex on South Broad

It's really go big to go home for Bart Blatstein at the long-vacant lot on the NE corner of Broad and Washington Ave. With the presentation last night in Hawthorne, it's clear that Bart's goin' mega-big, especially as his unlikely his casino project will make the cut. Blatstein's plan is to create a "town center" type development packed with (eventually) two residential towers filled with between 500-800 units each, a huge amenity deck, multi-story retail experiences and even a grocery store. If all goes well, Blatstein envisions a start date sometime before or around "June 2015."


Beyer Blinder Belle is the team behind the design, which features a complex 4-story retail component, an amenity deck on top of that and two residential towers. Long strips of retail with varying facades will front both South Broad Street and Washington Avenue. There will also be interior retail, mainly the grocery store that's set back within the complex and also a space for a large retailer on the third floor, which would have its own dedicated parking lot on the third floor as well (think SuperFresh at the Piazza). Blatstein envisions multiple restaurant spaces, a bike shop and possible a day spa to be part of the retail mix.

As for the residential element, it would rise "20- to 28- stories" above the 4-story retail aspect and be completed in two phases. The first tower would rise on the NW corner of the lot at Broad and Carpenter Street. The second would be at the corner of 13th and Washington Avenue.
