  • Description

    A 1970s building is reborn with updates inside and out.

    Built in 1974 as an apartment complex and then converted to condominiums in 1982, Center City One features 182 units. The bulk of them are for-sale condominiums, but about 60 are rentals.  Located on Spruce Street, just around the corner from the Avenue of the Arts, otherwise known as Broad Street, the pet-friendly Center City One is surrounded by an abundance of Philadelphia’s major music and theater venues. Walk to the Kimmel Center, where the Philadelphia Orchestra and many other world-renowned artists perform, as well as the Wilma Theater and the exquisite Academy of Music, home to the Pennsylvania Ballet. It’s also very near the University of the Arts in case you’re a parent seeking accommodation for a child who will attend that school. Despite its proximity to the Avenue of the Arts, Center City One commonly is placed in the Washington Square West (Wash West) neighborhood. As such it is convenient to a long list of restaurants and bars, including Restaurant Row on 13th Street. One thing is certain, if you want to live in a building that is truly walkable to the heart of the office district, City Hall and all manner of restaurants and conveniences, this is a building to investigate (our own Joanne Lombardi lives there, so contact her for first-hand information on it.)

    As a building, it’s been a solid, affordable place to call home — not necessarily the most glamorous building, but a very reliable choice in which units have balconies and many have south views toward the stadiums or north facing the city skyline. Recent updates to its exterior (repointing/cleaning, new windows, fix-ups on its balconies) and renovations to its lobby and corridors have brought it more in line with newer buildings in the vicinity.  It does offer some on-site parking but there are not enough spaces for every unit, so some buyers will have to rent a space at a garage nearby, of which there are quite a few. Nearby mass transit options include easy access to the Broad Street subway station, SEPTA regional rail and the high-speed PATCO line to New Jersey. Septa bus lines to Old City and University City also are nearby.

    The building has a doorman, 24-hour security, bike storage and storage units. Each apartment has in-unit HVAC, gas cooking available and washer/dryer hookups.

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...
