1706 Rittenhouse is a very exclusive, luxury high-rise in Philadelphia, and it has several features that make it the choice building for anyone who wants to live well and do it quietly. First, its location just a tad off of Rittenhouse Square is just a bit less visible than the buildings positioned directly on the park. Second, most of its 31 residences are floor-through, meaning you own the entire floor. No neighbors will see you coming and going because you have direct elevator access to your floor. This is your private home in the sky. Finally, the building has an automated parking garage, so you can send your car off to its assigned spot without a valet or attendant knowing your comings and goings.
Beyond its heightened privacy, 1706 Rittenhouse has a wide range of amenities and bills itself as “ultra-luxury.” Among the extras are a spa, residents’ garden and Koi pond, state-of-the-art fitness center (good enough for some previous pro-athlete residents of the building), sauna, lap pool, hot tub and on-call massage. A club room and conference center are available for meetings.
The apartments themselves feature ample glass, multiple terraces, views and custom finishes. Built as a joint venture between developer Tom Scannapieco and Joe Zuritsky, 1706 Rittenhouse constructed on the site of a parking lot that Zuritsky’s family owned and which he worked at in his youth. He had always hoped to put a special building on it, and with very exclusive, prized address that 1706 Rittenhouse has become, he has succeeded.
