Broad and Noble is a new 231-foot-tall, 19-story residential high-rise at 427-43 North Broad Street in Callowhill.
The property will feature retail and office space on the two lower floors and 368 residential units above. The structure consists of a two-story podium, styled as a separate building, located at the street corner and nestled within the larger building’s L-shaped footprint. The northern wing will stand taller than the eastern wing, and the bulk of the massing faces away from the Inquirer Building, giving extra air to its historic neighbor.
The design breaks away from the typical all-glass curtain wall, instead implementing a more traditional exterior that is respectful of the historic industrial neighborhood. A grid of dark gray brick encloses two-story sections split with light gray panels. The top floors will revert to an all-panel exterior. Setbacks among the uppermost levels make room for outdoor terraces.
