The Met Philly Showcases Glamorous Redesign

Two years after construction began, the $56 million Met Philly opera house renovation has transformed the over one hundred year old building.

“These spectacular images help define the concepts we’re developing that will provide the ultimate concert experience for our guests with the best sight lines, crystal clear sound and so much more,” said Geoff Gordon, Live Nation Philadelphia’s regional president, when the first renderings of the new space were revealed earlier this year.

The building originally opened in 1908 and holds a capacity of approximately 4,000 people.

Now the ceilings shine from gold detailing and clear lines and the walls feature many art deco pieces.

This redevelopment project by Eric Blumenfeld is a part of the overall redevelopment that stretches four miles along North Broad Street.

Other renovations along North Broad Street include The Divine Lorraine Hotel, which reopened a year ago with two restaurants and retail stores. The E. Hart Stable building also underwent revitalization back in 2017. The retail space and 41 new apartments were redeveloped by North Broad Living Management.
