Green Living on Broad Street

Broad Street has been forever changing and growing. It has been revitalized with the implementation of several theaters, restaurants, schools, hotels, historic sites and more. Each year seems to bring new and bigger projects to Broad Street. A desire to be in center city, close to these attractions has led more young families moving into this area.

Back in 2010, Dranoff Properties completed 777 Broad Street. These luxury apartments brought more than 100 new apartments within minutes walking distance to these Philadelphia attractions. These apartments were known as green living and the first smoke-free apartment dwelling introduced in Philadelphia. Offering retail space on the ground level and a pool on the roof, who would ever want to leave their home dwelling of 777?!

On to the next. Dranoff is bringing you Southstar Lofts.  It will be a six story building that mimics 777 in a sense of commercial space occupying the ground level and garden and roof access. Southstar Lofts will maintain the proposed 2,500 square feet of green space around the property. This space was once occupied by Garden of the Arts and tended to frequently. Vibrant blooms always could be seen peaking through the fences. Well, at least they’re keeping with the ‘green’ theme!

They’re work has started and framing has started to reveal the shape Southstar Lofts. We look forward to seeing the progression of this project. Scheduled occupancy of Spring 2014 doesn’t seem so far away.
