Located on the northwest corner of 22nd and Chestnut Streets sits the "pre-war" styled condos of the Coronado building. Just west of the Rittenhouse Square area and with a total of 37 condos in the building, this almost boutique condo building has some very interesting units. Most either have a northern or southern exposure and there is a maximum of 4 units per floors. I think what most of my buyers appreciate is the sense of space that each condo provides. From formal dining rooms to original flooring- The Coronado Condos really give you a feel like each condo is a little ranch house in the sky....they are really home-like in their detailing and layout. Lathe and plaster walls, crown moldings, and five panel solid doors all complete the interior look of each condo. Many units here do NOT have living room/dining room combinations. Most kitchens are galley in style- the saving grace being that most have a door out to a balcony or fire escape which my buyers find refreshing. I think The Coronado is without a doubt one of the BEST values to be found in 19103 for high rise condo living. You are not going to find this kind of space at the prices the building commands. And kudos to the condo association for the ongoing facade work. Most associations ignore this need...but the owners at 2201 Chestnut are putting money into the building to maintain their investments and I think that is a damned good thing!

The Tivoli condos (1900 Hamilton St) in Center City Philadelphia are comprised of a high rise building and is accompanied by a low rise set of courtyard condos that face a really nicely manicured enclosed lawn area.

One, Two, and Three-Bedroom Condominiums with a convenient gourmet market, a sidewalk cafe, and fitness center. There is a 24-hour concierge and valet parking as well as high-speed elevators to take you up to your life of luxury including 10-foot ceilings, custom appliances, stone baths, and hardwood flooring!
There are really a number of floorplans at 1101 Locust St. and many units on the higher floors have a value that centers around the balconies/terraces (some are HUGE). The south facing condos on the higher floors have great views and are known for an abundance of natural light. Many of the kitchens in the condo building are the same (style, color, and size) with a butterscotch colored tile backsplash. Bathrooms have ample size as do the walk-in closets. Again- Layout and overall size varies in many units (as does the view) so it may be difficult to compare "apples to apples" when trying to comp the value of the Western Union condominiums. Parking in the lower level is limited and is manned- as many condos have "lifts" and the cars are stacked- so few folks can self-park their car..they would use the valet. The condos do have a smallish gym on the 4th floor-which I have yet to see being used on my visits to 1101 Locust. I think most Philly condo buyers will agree that the location of the Western Union is strong- a very residential locale right in the heart of Washington Square West- and is adjacent to Jefferson Medical Hospital.

The Murano is probably one of the most striking modern condo buildings in Philadelphia and is a wonderful addition to our skyline.
Some units include parking and additional storage space. One of the largest and nicest amenities floors in town- the 6th floor has a pool, large gym, conference area, and outdoor deck- really smashing. The "02" and "03" units are really groovy in the fact that they have a large curved glass living room..with mostly floor to ceiling windows. Views are lovely and common areas are always clean and well kept.

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.

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.
