N. Broad Streetscape

Does anyone remember how N. Broad looked with flowers planted in the traffic islands a few years back? What started out as a good idea quickly became a nightmare on north broad, and the flower islands were eventually cemented. Maybe upkeep was the issue, I'm not sure. It was the area just north of city hall and it extended north several blocks.

Nice. It really fills its lot nicely, a lot better than I would have thought given that there's supposed to be a parking lot behind it. Kudos to the Broad Street Renaissance.

But I've seen a lot of buildings with that color brick, and especially if it's hand-laid (which, I believe, on 777 it is) it ages really well.

Brand new (as in this past weekend) photos of the 777. Can you dig it?

Thanks for all the updates, guys. Let's hope the people on the south side get something better to look at than a gas station soon!

I was expecting a bit more progress on the exterior after a whole month, oh well.

This is such a cool project, should really help push development further down Broad. Only thing I'd change (within reason) would be the brick facade. I think developers try to incorporate the red brick design into too many projects, i.e., 10 Rittenhouse. It'd be nice to see modern designs sprinkled here and there.

This picture shows how's it is really addressing the street well, and will give frame it with an appropriate urban mass. I like it a lot!

Definitely a handsome addition to South Broad St. It seems to have a vaguely Art Deco feel about it.
