The Ellington Condominiums at 1500 Chestnut St.

These wonderful Philadelphia Condominiums have soaring 10-foot ceilings and oversized yet energy-efficient, fully operational windows. Most units have spectacular city views. Ample storage and closet space in every unit.

The building offers a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa as well as a 24-hour concierge and maintenance. We like The Ellington because it offers a wonderfully urban setting, in the Rittenhouse Square area, and has become very popular with those looking for a modern, newly constructed high rise condominium in Rittenhouse Square area with lovely finishes.

2200 Arch Street Condominiums

This former Daily News Building at 2200 Arch St. sat empty for many years as a blight on The Philadelphia skyline. Thanks to the developer for rehabilitating this historical building into a wonderful condo loft building at an awesome location in Logan Square.

These condos feature LARGE windows with river or skyline views, open floor plans with gourmet kitchens, generous closets, and garage parking. They sit just a few blocks from the Murano. A few of these Center City condos even have balconies (Penthouse condo units have really bodacious roof decks! The condos for sale at 2200 Arch St. in the 19103 zip code area have proven to be great buys as the space in each unit is wonderful!

23 South 23rd Street Condominiums

Located just south of 23rd and Market Streets is 23 S. 23rd St. condos- a previous garage that was cored out and developed into condos. The most interesting thing about 23 S. 23rd is the fact that the developer did a smashing job on the courtyard/interior facing condos- a quiet reserve of condominiums that come to life every spring with some really nice landscaping and many of the condos have nice balconies that overlook the space.

Most of the units are flats- though most of the penthouse condos are bi-level. Indoor parking exists for most condos, and there is a 24-hour doorman. 83 total condos ranging in size from 783 sq ft to the large penthouses- the largest condo is 4477 sq ft.

The Residences at The Rittenhouse

Located at 210 W. Rittenhouse Square, "The Rittenhouse" is probably my favorite condo building in town.  I think values in the building are heavily dependent upon whether you face Rittenhouse Square or otherwise, as the views of the square are fabulous and command a premium.

The location speaks for itself.  I recently named the building one of my TEN BEST in Center City and if my other half would allow, we would move into the building tomorrow. The Penthouse units are interesting at 210 W. Rittenhouse Square because they all have oversized balconies and fireplaces and the views are nothing short of spectacular.

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.
