If plans are approved for The Hotel Blue on Broad, the old Blue Horizon boxing venue on North Broad Street will mostly be a memory.
Though Mosaic Development Partners plans to incorporate the Blue Horizon’s history into the boutique hotel, the building itself will be demolished and a new one built in its footprint.
PlanPhilly reports the $28 million proposal calls for 87 rooms and a new eight-story addition. The Blue Horizon closed in 2010, but it’s the history people are worried about.
Developers want a Fall 2014 open, but several zoning provisions need to be worked out before the project can move forward.
