  • Description

    Historical details, high-end finishes and hotel services.

    The Bank Building at the Omni Hotel is in a historical hotspot directly across from Independence Hall. This building was designed in 1857 by architect John M. Gries (who died in 1862 in the Civil War) for Bank of Pennsylvania, later to become Philadelphia National Bank. It went through a number of alterations but has largely remain unchanged since 1908. The Bank Building’s residents benefit from the services of the attached Omni Hotel — similar to the Residences at the Ritz-Carlton. Room service, housekeeping services and such amenities as an indoor pool, fitness center, concierge desk and valet parking are shared between the hotel and condos.

    There are 20 units in the Bank Building. Only a few have been on the market in the past five years. Each of the 20 condos has high-end finishes juxtaposed against exposed-brick, barrel-vaulted ceilings, some exposed-brick walls and mostly custom kitchens and baths. Those who have been in the market looking at condo buildings likely will spot the higher quality in the Bank Building’s finishes. Almost all the condos have an open-plan main living space with kitchens open to living/dining areas. Some has gas fireplaces. The units facing Chestnut Street have tall, arched windows. The view toward Independence Hall and the park is exceptional – living at the Bank Building really does put one at the epicenter of our nation’s birth, and many neighborhood landmarks will remind one of the importance Philadelphia played in turning colonies into an independent democracy.
