Developer Eric Blumenfeld is reported to be looking at the Divine Lorraine Hotel, on North Broad Street, as a shared-campus site for four Philadelphia high schools.
One week after Mayor Nutter touted possible new life for a shuttered North Broad Street icon, City Council president Darrell Clarke says still there’s a way to go before any possible deal.
