Moonlight Etchings of the Forgotten Artist who Taught Edward Hopper

Martin Lewis died in obscurity in 1962; a retired art teacher who had found some success in his early career, but was largely forgotten after the Great Depression took away the demand for his craft, leaving Lewis to spend his last three decades teaching other people how to etch.

Projects from this developer in Philadelphia have included Naval Square, Stamper Square, 2400 South, and a now under construction tower on Jewelers’ Row. But Toll Bros. is a huge company and also has a rental arm, and that business is finally dipping a toe in the Philadelphia market. This effort will take place at the corner of Broad & Noble, on a property that’s currently used as a surface parking lot.

Seventeen Units Progressing on Noble Street With Not So Steamy Views – OCF Realty

View of the new buildings

We stumbled onto a row of new construction recently at the intersection of 9th & Noble and had a funny feeling we’d written about the project before. As is usually the case when we have these feelings, we have indeed covered this project before, back in 2016, when the property was an overgrown, fenced-in vacant lot. Back then, we told you that developers were planning six triplexes and a duplex for a total of 17 units, but the project was still awaiting ZBA approval so it wasn’t a guarantee that it would be happening. As you can see, they got their variance and construction has finally progressed over the course of this year.
