THE NEW CURTIS BUILDING HAS A FLAW
Thankfully my Blackberry died and I will get a new camera phone that will take stellar pictures. Darn I am w/o a phone for a couple days so don’t call or text me. You can email me though at Buzz @ phillychitchat .com
The progress of the Curtis Institute on Locust Streets
The set back residential portion: The student residences begin on the 5th floor, with a designated suite for a senior resident advisor. Other fifth-floor amenities include laundry facilities and a small kitchen.
Sixth–Ninth Floors: Student Residences
Residences will accommodate 88 students (approximately half of the student body). Each suite will provide four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and common/social space. I was ecstatic that they kept the historic front of two houses, but surprised they allowed these bay floors to extend beyond the flush of the building.
It’s obnoxious for a building that is in a historic neighborhood, on a historic block. What was the purpose.
