In West Poplar


After stopping by a still-snowy 20-unit project that is making its mark along North Broad, we couldn't help but peer south past the Stable Lofts (we still miss Clementine's along the ground floor) where another project is slowly making its way forward.

It sure seems like Broad Street has had a bit of magnetism to it lately, on both ends of the thoroughfare. And today, we are once again drawn back to a familiar corner, where The McDermott at 695 N. Broad St. is literally rounding into form. This 20-unit apartment building

When we were checking out the site of a 40-or-so unit proposal along N. Broad St. the other day, we couldn't help but notice a burst of Kelly green in the background of another property we were scoping out. We decided to make our way over to 1309 Cambridge St.,

After we visited two side-by-side properties on Vine St. the other day, we decided to gather our thoughts (and snag an iced coffee) at the now-finished LVL North project on the NW corner of N. Broad & Spring Garden. As we grabbed our seat, we were facing the surface parking
