Description

This gorgeous 1915 Georgian Revival structure designed by Stewardson and Page was transformed into 268 luxury apartments (one, two and three bedrooms), 140 valet parking spaces, retail and commercial areas, as well as a direct concourse link to Philadelphia’s major transportation hub at Penn Center’s Suburban Station.

The dumbbell shape of the upper floors allowed for a unique mixture of apartment types. On the top of the building large apartments created out of historic paneled rooms have spectacular views and terraces.

The rectangular footprint of the bottom four floors features a mix of amenities and commercial space including a 300 seat Irish pub themed restaurant, a federal credit union, a sky lit gym, The Phoenix Club, and a secluded conference and office suite.
