Broad St.) back in September, to today when it was announced that the Divine Lorraine apartments would begin pre-leasing the apartments.

The listing on Craigslist states: Large, open floor plans allow you to maximize your living area while living just steps away from world-class dining and retail. Apartment finishes combine sleek industrial touches, while maintaining the vintage charm of the Divine Lorraine. The modern kitchens feature top of the line appliances and beautiful light granite counter tops.
1 Bedrooms Starting @ $1325

A coffee shop and bi-level restaurant will fill the commercial space.
Each apartment will be equipt with a full kitchen, washer and dryer, and range in a number of bedrooms. The building will even have a 24-hour doorman to ensure the safety of the residences.
