  • Description

    A National Historic Landmark building with exquisite details.

    The Phoenix at 1600 Arch Street is the one place you can live in Philadelphia and travel to Europe without stepping foot outside. With the ability to walk from your residence to Suburban Station’s concourse without going above-ground, you can catch regional rail to wherever you need to go — whether it’s to the Philadelphia International Airport or 30th Street Station to hop on Amtrak. But that’s not the primary reason people love The Phoenix. It’s simply one of the most beautiful residential buildings in the city with a full suite of amenities.

    Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, The Phoenix has long been recognized for its Georgian Revival design created by architects Stewardson & Page. In 1926, the year after the building was completed as the headquarters for the Insurance Company of North America, its design earned a gold medal from the Philadelphia chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

    Fast-forward to 2002. The building underwent a dramatic but sensitive renovation as it was converted to 267 condominiums with several floors of commercial space at street level. All the features that conveyed stability and safety — key for an insurance company — are still there, from the enormous bronze entry doors and window surrounds to the Kasota and Carerra marble floors and granite columns to foot-thick concrete floors. Intricate millwork and moldings, coffered ceilings, bronze-paneled elevator doors — the building is a masterpiece.

    Residential units range from studios to two bedrooms, some with a den that can serve as a guest room in a pinch. There are, more or less, 32 floor plans. Many of the residences have wood flooring in the main living area and neutral carpet in the bedrooms. Some have had updates made to kitchens and baths. Some have outstanding views of City Hall and the skyline while others look toward the Art Museum Area. Even if an apartment doesn’t have a prime view, the roof deck on the building provides a perch from which to take in dramatic city views.

    The location of The Phoenix at 1600 Arch places it at the intersection of several neighborhoods – an unusual position. We’re calling it “Art Museum Area,” as it’s at the front edge of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, but it also is very close to Logan Square and the Avenue of the Arts. For the person who wants to be close to the museums, close to the business district and not too far from Rittenhouse Square, the Phoenix is an ideal option.
