I'm so glad to see the neighborhood surrounding my alma mater beginning to change for the better! I graduated from Temple last year and I'm so jealous that all of these new Owls are not only getting a new campus, but also a new neighborhood in essence!

I can't really get over how this building is reminiscent of a combination copy 1324 N. Broad and One Riverside, however.

You're 100% right. I love the density, but it's a very cookie-cutter design.

I love this. Amazing development. Templetown is on fire

North Broad continues to build up in a great way between Center City and Temple. Soon, it will be lined with highrise and midrises.

19-story North Broad tower moves forward

Quote:
A 19-story residential tower is coming to North Broad Street, offering a, “refined, contemporary,” look along the increasingly popular section of Philly, according to plans posted on the city website.

The tower at 1451 North Broad is designed by Cecil Baker + Partners and goes in front of the Civic Design Review (CDR) for feedback today. It has 225 residential units, 21 parking spaces, and 5,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor. The second story will have amenities including a lounge, outdoor terrace, and fitness center.

“Entry to the residential tower will be through a landscaped courtyard facing Broad Street. A dramatic marquee and cantilever provides cover from Broad Street to the lobby,” project plans said.

Developers and architects called the L-shaped building refined and contemporary in its design, with a facade of grey metal panels, white slabs, and reflective glass.

The site is currently home to the Mount Sinai Holy Church of America, which has owned it since the 1970s, according to city records.

Glad to see this move forward. But Cecil and Eric Leighton really need a new playbook. They are designing in their sleep. Still...build it!

Ok, build it. Cecil Baker & Partners is the Nickelback of architects. Still, build it.
