Blatstein’s Tower Place Unveiled, Is Part Of His Mission To Rule North Broad

Bart Blatstein‘s Tower Place, the former State Office building, has been unveiled. The building’s $70 million renovation is part of Blatstein’s grand plan to get himself anointed King of North Broad Street, or something like that. The building, which will rent one and two bedroom apartments for $1500/$3000 per month to a “wide demographic of Philadelphians” (namely, those with money), would be a great companion piece to the potential Provence, the $700 million casino/entertainment/shopping/spa complex in the former Inky Buidling and surrounding area.

Regardless of Blatstein’s eventual ownership of the revitalization of North Broad, and even if the Provence doesn’t get the official nod (which we honestly don’t see not happening), dude’s putting a lot of his chips in the North Broad Street basket. In the end, it may not get him named King of North Broad Street, but maybe he can be the King of Jeans.

    I know you and Bart and friends, but considering Bloomfield started revitalizing N. Broad first, has created two separate large apartment buildings already, got Vetri + Starr there, has purchased the Divine Lorraine, is a likely bidder for the Church of the Assumption, and isn’t trying to put a casino in because of his personal delusions of grandeur…Bart can be our court jester, thanks very much.
