UArts Sells 103-Year-old Center City Building to Philadelphia Developer


University of the Arts has sold a 103-year-old Center City residence hall to a local developer planning to convert the building into apartments. MM Partners paid $10.7 million for the 45,500-square-foot building at 1500 Pine St., according to property records.
