  • Description

    Ultra-luxe residences are coming to Society Hill in 2017.

    In the shadow of 18th-century Independence Hall, the spectacular 21st-century 500 Walnut is rising, the only modern residential tower to be built in the extremely historical neighborhood since Ben Franklin strolled its cobblestone streets. OK, we exaggerate, but not by much. This incredible 26-story creation by architect Cecil Baker + Partners is scheduled to welcome its first residents later in 2017 and is already two-thirds sold. Developed by Tom Scannapieco, who entered the ultra-luxe residential condo category with his highly successful 1706 Rittenhouse, 500 Walnut represents a new level of indulgent, want-for-nothing living.

    Designed for seasoned city residents as well as suburbanites who are making the switch to urban living, 500 Walnut is designed to offer privacy (self-parking garage means no one know you’re comings and goings; nonstop elevators ensure you’re alone for the ride) and spacious indoor and outdoor accommodations. Residences will be between 2,700 and 4,300 square feet and all will have huge private balconies. High ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and gas fireplaces are standard. All buyers may customize their floor plans by having their architect work with the building’s designer and builder.

    The building’s amenities include what have become typical in Philadelphia’s newer condo buildings — concierge desk, town-car service, indoor pool, well-outfitted fitness center, pet-wash area, conference room, party room with catering kitchen — and some features that go above and beyond. Electric-vehicle charging stations in the robotic self-park garage (90 second park/retrieval time, on average), a spa, billiard room, 4,000-square-foot open-air terrace with fireplace and views of Independence Hall and for your guests, a fully furnished, completely private, luxurious short-term-stay suite.

    The Society Hill neighborhood and adjacent Washington Square area tend to be a bit more sedate than, say, Rittenhouse Square. Enjoy the green space of the mall at Independence National Historic Park or at Washington Square Park a half block away. Attend independent and foreign films at the Ritz Five. Score a dinner reservation at nearby, nationally renowned Zahav, and you’ll have quite an evening. Walk to an array of museums; enjoy the 18th- and 19th-century streetscapes of Society Hill. Life at 500 Walnut truly combines the most modern living the city of Philadelphia has to offer with some of our country’s most historically important sites all around you.
