  • Description

    Balconies, park views and refined city living on Washington Square.

    On the edge of Washington Square Park, the two-tower Independence Place was completed in the 1980s and has 487 units. With walls of windows, apartments have generous natural light and views, and most have balconies and/or terraces. Naturally, prices climb as one reaches the higher floors, but thanks to the historical surroundings, even lower-level residences often have treetop or courtyard views. Because of the age of Independence Place, many of the residences have been updated so that at this point, floor plans and finishes are very individualized. Some of the apartments that are in need of a refresh can be purchased for approximately $350/SF and sometimes less, a steal to get into a doorman building in this neighborhood.

    The building features a freestanding, wide-ranging sculpture in the courtyard, “Total Environment” by artist Barbara Neijna along with seasonal landscaping and brick hardscaping. There is parking garage below the complex. Residents may rent a space.

    Additional amenities include a 24/7 doorman, concierge desk, community room that can be rented by residents, bicycle storage and storage lockers.

    Walk to shops, restaurants, the historical sites around Independence Mall and Society Hill.
