Built in 1926 with modern lines that represented a true departure from the Beaux Arts buildings already lining Rittenhouse Square, 220 W. Rittenhouse Square is a 25-story, 95-unit condominium hi-rise. Its advantages are its position directly overlooking the green space of the park, and for some buyers, its simplicity. This is a doorman building with a recently renovated lobby. No parking, no pool, no gym, just a lovely, well-managed building to come home to at the end of a work day in Philadelphia’s esteemed 19103 ZIP code.
This building has a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units. The level of updates in condos in this building varies greatly – some look like sleek little jewel boxes; other like Park Avenue apartments. Upper-floor residences at 220 W. Rittenhouse have balconies, and the penthouse units have incredible 360-degree views.
While the monthly condo fees may seem expensive, they include all utilities except cable.
