Developer Carl Dranoff says he is a few weeks away from being able to confirm details of the "game-changing project" he imagines for South Broad Street across from the Kimmel Center.
Dranoff says he has met with city planners. He has a review scheduled with the zoning-watchers at the Washington Square West civic association, where he'll unwrap more details, this month. He has talked to lenders.
If all goes well, he plans to present the proposal publicly sometime after Dec. 8.
The Philadelphia Business Journal and the website Hidden City Philadelphia have posted purported details of the tower, citing unnamed sources. Hidden City reported that the tower would be 40 stories and include a hotel and apartments, making it the tallest building on South Broad Street. Dranoff would not confirm those details.
