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.

Why we Love Waterfront Square

I know every condo building in Center City Philadelphia, and I chose to buy and live at Waterfront Square condos at 901 N. Penn St.

WaterFrontSquare.jpg

From the parking, to the pool, to the value and views- I really love living at “WFS”. The building is located in a quiet section of Center City and offers a great deal of value for the money. I think the quality of life is high and the values strong for everything the condo buildings offer. Three buildings in all- The Regatta, The Peninsula, and the Reef all offer varying floor plans, prices and finishes.
