BART BLATSTEIN is the alpha and the omega.
At least on our block.
Having recently purchased the former State Office Building at Broad and Spring Garden streets - for a cool $21 million - the Tower Investments developer went ahead and bought the neighboring 18-story Daily News/Inquirer building at Broad and Callowhill.
"It's a wonderful property. We like to have critical mass where we develop," Blatstein said yesterday, declining to reveal how much he's paying Philadelphia Media Network for the half-empty building at 400 N. Broad St. and its adjacent parking lot and garage.
