  • Description

    Paul Philippe Cret's design has stood the test of time.

    Given the French influence on the design of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway (French landscape architect Jacques Gréber wanted the boulevard to emulate the Champs-Élysées in Paris), it’s perhaps appropriate that French-born architect Paul Philippe Cret would be called on to create a very large, very ambitious apartment building along Pennsylvania Avenue just off the Parkway between 26th and 27th Streets on a former industrial site. In 1939, after more than 12 years of designs done in collaboration with his student and assistant, Aaron Colish, the building now known as 2601 Parkway Condominiums opened.
    In 1939, with more than 500 units, 2601 Parkway Condominiums was the third-largest apartment building in the U.S. It was designed to offer all-in-one conveniences for residents and included a restaurant, a beauty salon, a florist and other hotel-like amenities that are now commonplace in luxury buildings. Its spacious marble lobby has a notable tile mural created by ceramicist Francis Serber and painter Nicholas Marsicano, New Deal artists of the 1930s. The mural is a timeline depicting human history from earliest civilization through the early decades of the 20th century. In the early 1990s, the building underwent a renovation with architect Aaron Colish able to lend his expert knowledge of the building to the process. In 2005, the building converted from a rental to a condominium building and 2601 Parkway Condominiums was born.
    This pet-friendly, doorman building has a variety of floor plans, and some units have terraces. There is on-site parking, a fitness center, concierge desk and on-site maintenance staff. As a convenience for residents, 2601 Parkway Condominiums has its own shuttle. Condo fees are also a bargain compared to other buildings in the city, likely due to the large number of units at 2601 Parkway Condominiums. The fees include cooking gas and water in addition to the amenities and services the building offers.
