  • Description

    A pre-War beauty convenient to museums, the train station, University City and more.

    At the cusp of the 20th century, Coronado architects Samuel Milligan and Frederick Webber were very busy designing apartment buildings in the city of Philadelphia, particularly on the western edge of the city. The Coronado, their Beaux Arts brick and terra cotta creation, was completed in 1910 with 10 stories and a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Presently, that mix remains the same with 36 units and no more than four condominiums per floor.  Apartments have plenty of character that comes quite naturally in a Beaux Arts building. The Coronado features a beautiful marble lobby and grand stairwell along with two elevators. Beyond doorman/concierge service, it does not offer other amenities, which is perfect for the buyer who doesn’t care about an on-site gym, business center, party room, etc.

    Most of the apartments have oak hardwood floors, though condition obviously depends on whether someone had them refinished along the way – what’s important is that they typically are still in place and because they are real wood, they usually can be refinished to a beautiful, near-original condition. As in any building of this vintage, kitchens and bathrooms have been updated, and it’s a matter of how recently and at what level. Kitchens has gas cooking, and gas heat and central air are the norm. Units also have washers and dryers.

    There is no parking with The Coronado, but given the area, there are lots and garages where a parking space can be rented. The Coronado’s location really is perfect for residents heading to University City, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the Art Museum Area, 30th Street Station, the central business district and City Hall, and Rittenhouse Square/Fitler Square.

About this Area

Rittenhouse Square

After someone moves to Rittenhouse Square, long Philadelphia's most exclusive neighborhood, it seems the Square has a way of becoming the center of their universe, the sun around which everything else revolves. OK, perhaps that's an overstatement, but talk to long-time residents and they are quite clear that this is the only place they would consider buying a luxury condo in Center City Philadelphia.
