I think the block is fine (I live barely 1 block away), I just don't think people want to live literally right on Broad Street. I don't think Symphony House did great either, so it's not a completely baseless idea.

Yeah, at least one Flyers player lives there - just to show the kind of money some of the residents in The Atlantic have.

Can someone remind me what's going in at street level?

Also, since we're discussing this corner, I'd be curious to hear people's thoughts on The Wilma.

that may have more to do with the fact that people don't necessarily want to live in a building that looks like a bottle of pepto bismol.

This.

It's the ugliest building in Center City. I wouldn't in a million years pay for a unit there.

A construction worker got injured today and firefighters had to rescue him off the 42nd floor.

I actually Like the symphony it reminds me of something they would build in the 1920's, the color isn't that bad either maybe they could have went with a darker color though.

Agree. I don't find the shape too bad. If it were a gray or brown color instead of pink, then it would help A LOT.

I can think of plenty of uglier buildings in Center City.

Plus, who cares what it looks like on the outside? You live INSIDE.
