PHILADELPHIA | Broad & Lombard | 542 FT | 44 FLOORS

Previous thread merged. Just a reminder for folks to check if there is an existing thread prior to making one.

Can also check the city tag as well. eg; philly, NYC, Miami, and so on where it will group all threads assigned to that tag.

Thanks

The reason that 500 foot building forum was made was because the tower was only heavily rumored at the time. The Broad and South Virgin Hotel project was seen as a seperate project until the CDR document revealed the 500 foot tower. It was confirmed by a ingormative user on Skyscraperpage

Broad and Lombard is not even close to being Rittenhouse.

The neighborhood tag on the Yimby articles are based off of Google Maps. We’ve had Philly real estate agents tell us the same thing, and you two are both correct

Real Estate agents will tell you Harlem is Upper West Side. Nothing new here -

I think the Rittenhouse neighborhood — officially — extends east to Broad and south to South. At least in terms of neighborhood association boundaries, etc. Of course of you say “Rittenhouse” most Philadelphians think in terms of proximity to the park. But for official city divisions, I think Rittenhouse might be correct.
