Carl Dranoff’s SLS International Hotel/Condo Hosts A Demolition Party

I ran into Carl Dranoff at the Philadelphia Style Magazine Party last month and he invited me to the demolition party he’s having for investors, friends and family at

301-309 and 311 South Broad Street, the former home of the offices and studio of Philadelphia International Records. 
 It was big news last summer when it was announced that Dranoff was taking down the buildings to build the 47-story tower SLS International Hotel/Condo on the corner of Broad and Spruce Street. The new building will include a four or five star hotel with luxe condos and an entertainment/restaurant space. SLS Hotels is part of SBE founder Sam Nazarian’s growing global empire.
It has hotels open or under construction in Los Angeles, Miami, Las
Vegas, and New York, as well as in China.

Update: The Demolition Party is late winter. The groundbreaking for the new building will be August 2015. See you there.
