Philadelphia’s Most Prestigious Addresses

Living the luxurious lifestyle in Philadelphia is all about finding just the right home to suit your unique tastes and needs. From sparkling modern glass facade high rises to converted historic architectural masterpieces, there’s something to tempt the heart of any high-end home buyer.

Few cities in the world can compare with Philadelphia’s chic and lavish urban lifestyle, and the broad selection of exemplary luxury real estate is truly phenomenal.

To get a sense of the exquisite homes available throughout Philadelphia’s Center City, let’s explore five of the city’s most prestigious addresses.

All 5 Stars: The Rittenhouse Hotel & Condominium

210 W. Rittenhouse Square

Philadelphia’s five diamond luxury hotel and condominiums located on desirable Rittenhouse Square, The Rittenhouse offers world-class hotel style services and unparalleled amenities.

Situated in the heart of all the action—shops, art galleries, restaurants, museums, social events and more—residing next to the famed Rittenhouse Square Park comes with certain advantages.

Historic Made Modern: The Award-Winning Ayer Condominium

Located on 210 W. Washington Square

Approaching nearly 100 years of age, this magnificent building once housed the headquarters for the nation’s first advertising agency. Step beyond the substantial 1929 Art Deco façade and through the solid bronze doors and you will discover 49 captivating condominium residences designed by architect Wesley Wei.

Wei’s trademark modernist approach uses large, open living spaces, high ceilings, huge windows and an abundance of natural light to give residences in The Ayer an easy, elegant flow.

Old World Elegance: The Barclay Condominium

237 S. 18th Street

The world-famous J.E.R. Carpenter built the Barclay in 1929. You may recognize the name—his firm also erected a number of famed NYC high rises, most notably the Empire State Building.

Modeled after the Paris Ritz, the Barclay operated as a luxury hotel until the early 1980s. In 1999, a full transition to the condominium was made, giving owners full autonomy over custom design. Detail oriented aesthetics dominate the residences, with ornate high ceilings, crown molding and original herringbone flooring.

All of this with Rittenhouse Square just outside your doorstep.

Philadelphia’s Most Exclusive Address: 1706 Rittenhouse Square Condominium

1706 Rittenhouse Square Street

Located in the heart of historic Rittenhouse Square, this contemporary crown jewel offers 31 full-floor residences with direct elevator access. Unrivaled privacy, magnificent 360-degress views of Center City and an unprecedented number of exclusive amenities, the likes of which had never before been seen in Philadelphia.

For all these reasons and more, 1706 is Philadelphia’s most sought-after address.

Bringing City Living to New Heights: Two Liberty Place
