Provence on North Broad: Bart Blatstein’s casino/resort/entertainment complex

A rooftop shopping street with French flourishes, a 125 room hotel, 3000 slot machines, 150 table games, two swim clubs, a jazz club, a comedy club, a theater, and a botanical garden?

Meet The Provence, Bart Blatstein’s Francophilic casino/entertainment/resort complex proposed for the former Inquirer/Daily News building.

Bart hosted a bash to show off the conceptual designs for the complex on Wednesday evening. Here’s a roundup of news off of the event:
