Included in the National Register of Historic Places, ICON is a quintessential 25-story apartment building with architecture and design inspired by the Art Deco exuberance that defined the 1920s and 1930s. Built in 1930, its rich history is eye-catching as soon as you enter the lobby with the Art-Deco styled elevators, glazed black brick, and grey procelain flooring. Remarkable tenants who once resided in this extraordinary ICON include the United States Lines, Cunard’s White Star Line, and the esteemed Pew family.
Recently undergoing a $50 million redevelopment in 2013, ICON entails 220 luxury smoke-free apartments with a spacious sky deck overlooking the beautiful city of Philadelphia. With a plethora of amenities, you can accomplish a full day of activities without even leaving the walls of the apartment building. Stay fit on the Wellness Floor that includes a yoga studio, cardio machines, weights, and even a boxing room. Head to the Business Center to hold conferences, work at the computers, and utilize the printers. Finally, relax or entertain private parties on the Club Level, which entails a kitchen and large media room with flat-screen televisions and billiards.
Although there is plenty to do inside the walls of the ICON, the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood is lined with a sufficient amount of top restaurants, fine retailers, and highly unique boutiques that are all within walking distance. The beautiful park that lies in the center of the square is the site of annual flower markets, outdoor art exhibitions, festivals, and more. For those who travel, Philadelphia International Airport is about 20 minutes by car and 30th Street Train Station is just a 10 minute drive.
With the perfect mix of historic beauty and modern amenities, ICON is one of Philadelphia’s most exquisite apartment buildings.
