  • Description

    A favorite building in the Avenue of the Arts neighborhood.

    Positioned between Rittenhouse Square and the Avenue of the Arts (but typically considered part of the latter neighborhood), the Aria Condominiums are located at 1425 Locust Street in a 1920s Art Deco building with a striking facade. Designed by Edmund Gilchrist’s firm (he designed some outstanding French Norman- and English Cotswold-inspired “country houses” on Philadelphia’s Main Line that are notable to this day), this 33-story tower was originally known as the Lewis Building and was one of the city’s tallest office buildings until new construction started in Center City in the 1980s.

    In 2005 the Lewis Building was sold to be converted to the Aria Condominiums with 107 units in the building and commercial space on the street level. Penthouses start on the 30th floor and offer outstanding views. Most of the Aria’s apartments have wood floors, contemporary cabinetry and quality materials and fixtures in the kitchens and baths, and plenty of windows.

    Amenities in the building include a doorman, concierge services, a fitness center, hospitality suite for guests, a residents’ lounge with billiard table, media room, pet spa and boardroom, among others.

    Just around the corner from the Avenue of the Arts itself, the Aria is a few minutes’ walk from the Kimmel Center, the Academy of Music, the Wilma Theater and other venues. Walk a 10 minutes toward Rittenhouse Square and you’ll enjoy all of the shops and restaurants that neighborhood offers. This sort of in-between location where one can enjoy the best of both neighborhoods is one reason the Aria Condominiums remain a popular choice for buyers and renters alike.

About this Area

Avenue of the Arts

The Avenue of the Arts really took shape in the early 1990s as arts, entertainment and business groups came together to rename a section of Broad Street, the city's main North-South artery, and promote the area as an arts corridor. Its territory includes Broad St. and one block east and west, north to Glenwood Ave. and south to Washington Ave. The Avenue of the Arts corridor had some notable existing theaters and arts-related...
