Ridiculous light masts aside, the last few years have been very very good to North Broad Street. We’ve actually lost count of the number of buildings that have been repurposed as apartments, adding new residents and a vibrancy that had been missing here for decades. The lastest addition to the mix is Mural Lofts, a project from EB Realty which converted the former Thaddeus Stevens School of Practice into 59 apartments at Broad & Spring Garden. The name of the project comes from the awesome mural on the building’s western wall, a mural you’ve probably noticed at some point when passing by on Broad Street.Current view of the buildingThe mural, a few years backAs you can see, the building’s architecture is wonderful, and we’re fortunate that the developers were able to reuse the structure, built in 1926. Though the building was used more recently as an administration building, it retained many original details inside. Some of those features have been integrated into the apartments units.
