The Grandview Condos at 1100 Vine Street

Most buyers view the condo fees as being high- but almost all utilities included. Nearby parking (rental). Easy access to highways. You will get a lot for your money at 1100 Vine in terms of the size of the units- most buyers impressed with that fact. Med students seem to flock to the 550 sq ft one bedroom units. Doorman building.

1100 Vine was smart in deciding to limit the number of rentals in the building- somewhere around 25% max. Keeps the building "easy to finance". Hallways a bit neutral- and washer/dryers are common and in the hallways (coin-op)- but can be installed inside units at owners expense. Basement storage. A smart buy for the space!

1830 Rittenhouse Square Condominiums

Known simply by Philadelphians as "1830", the condominium building sits on the south of Rittenhouse Square and was the first high-rise to appear on the Square back in the mid-1920's. Originally an apartment building- this Beaux Art styled building is hailed as one of the finest examples of pre-war architecture amongst the condo set here in Philadelphia. The condos at 1830 Rittenhouse are unique in the fact that very few- if any of the condos in the building are alike...having been broken up and added onto over the years.

What few know is that there are two penthouse units here- and both are only accessible by taking the elevator to the 18th floor- then walking up a flight of stairs to reach those two condos....when built- these were the maid's quarters/apartments for the "help" in the building....and 1830 is the last remaining condominium building in town that have elevator attendants. The condos range in size from 1000 sq ft one bedroom units to entire floor condos which are over 5000 sq. ft. in size. I believe there may even be a few bi-level condos in the building....but I am pulling that from a shaded memory from years ago. The condos at 1830 Rittenhouse do not offer parking, but other options around Rittenhouse Sq. do exist. The doormen at 1830 are nothing short of kind and helpful. I have sold a few units in the building over the years- just know that there are not a lot of units in the building (41 total). A really fantastic groovy pre-war condo building with lots of cache and some terrific views of Rittenhouse Square.

The Residences at The Ritz Carlton - 1414 Penn Square

I love the Ritz. Love. I think the fit and finish, along with the pricing structure, location and staff are nothing short of top notch. The amenities floor includes a large pool, huge gym, hot tub and one of the most comfortable and actually usable community rooms I have seen in town- and guess what- owners actually use it (rare for these rooms to get good use, but this one is so comfy that it actually gets used). Great outdoor space off the community room as well. The A and G units face south, and they are both two bedroom condos- and I think a terrific value- I have sold two of these units in my day and my clients LOVE living at 1414 S. Penn Square. The B units are the only stack with balconies. I also find the F units to be very popular with many of my buyers. Though to be honest, I don't think my clients would turn their nose up at any unit here if the unit happened to fall into their price range. 

1414 Penn Sq.

Units all have high-end finishes with floor to ceiling windows. Bathrooms are oversized and spacious. You have to palettes to choose from in terms of finishes, and I don't see a whole lot of difference between the two- meaning my buyers tend to like both options. Parking and extra storage are available at an additional price. Owners of condos at the Ritz Carlton have access to the Towncar to take them around town. The penthouses are nothing short of stunning... and you may have an opportunity to buy them raw and finish them to your liking. The building is a very attractive blue glass and from the curb, provides an interesting look and feel to the neighborhood.

Locust Point Condominiums

Listen as Mark speaks in a conversational tone about what he knows and believes about the condos located at 2429 Locust St. in Center City Philadelphia- Locust Point condos.

e_bldg.jpg

Originally built as a warehouse then converted to apartments in the 1980’s and eventually converted to condos, I believe Locust Point condominiums happen to be one of the strongest buys in the 19103 zip code for those either looking to be close to the University of Pennsylvania or simply in a strong location near the Schuylkill River jogging trail.

Hawthorne Loft Condominiums

Listen as Mark speaks casually about his experience and knowledge of the condominiums known as Hawthorne Lofts. Originally built from the Nathaniel Hawthorne school in the 19147 zip code, these lofts offer a lot of amenities for the money.

outside.jpg

Location is strong and most units have parking and I honestly believe there is a sense of community at 712 S. 12th St. due to the configuration of the common elements- from the roof deck to the pool room to the gym. Nicely done!

2015 Philly Condo Market Overview

2015 Philly Condo Market information broken down into 3 segments: Low-Rise, Mid-Rise, and High-Rise condominiums.

headerCondoImages.png

Low-rises are generally made up of brownstones and lofts...they come in many different styles and sizes and most of these condos possess one-of-a-kind character. 

Mid-rises are generally 5-10 story buildings with no doorman, may or may not have an elevator, and usually do not have many on-site amenities, which keeps the condo fees a bit lower than that of a high rise. 
High-rises are much larger buildings and generally the condo fees are higher that that of a mid- or low-rise condo because of the amenities and staff on-site. You can generally find an elevator, doorman, parking, a fitness center, pool, and possibly on-site management in these larger buildings. The units available are usually a little more cookie-cutter as well, meaning unit 901 is probably identical to unit 2801 and so forth and so on.
