Eric Blumenfeld of EB Reality, "the guy behind the Divine Lorraine," seems to have his hands full these days. His Mural Arts Lofts on Spring Garden near Broad Street has been fenced off for some time, and now it comes with a rendering.
And what a rendering it is.
The building has been a no-brainer for quite a while. It's a handsome old school, scaled perfectly for residences. And it comes with quite a bit of undeveloped land perfect for both public or private outdoor space.
So I'm not sure what happened. It's circular driveway seems to cry out to the bros squatting in the basements of their parents' New Jersey McMansions, begging them to move downtown. I'm not sure I hate it, but the last thing it says is "Loft Living."
