Its been 40 plus years since the signs atop of the Divine Lorraine Hotel have lit up N. Broad Street. In the span of the last four decades, the N. Broad Street corridor has gone through transformations. Now the soon-to-be restored Divine Lorraine which will house condos as well as retail space, looks to become a beacon of light. This light will literally shine bright starting November 9th during the Divine Lorraine sign lighting ceremony.
The festivities kick off at 4 pm with a block party for attendees to enjoy at the foot of the Divine Lorraine along Melon Street and N. Park Ave. EB Realty which is spearheading the project, is also organizing the block party which will include live entertainment, games, food vendors, a beer garden as well as Divine Lorraine merchandise on hand for purchase. It’s all for a great cause as this event will benefit the Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region.

Originally scheduled for October 27th, the block party & sign lighting has been pushed back twice due to weather. The developers and the city have been seeking the perfect evening to launch such a historic event. For those looking to get a peep of the inside, you’ll have to wait a while as the organizers did not secure a permit to allow the public to enter the Divine Lorraine. Either way it will be great to see the signs light up and add to the ever changing Philadelphia skyline.
