  • Description

    Completed in 2006, this is a favorite Old City building.

    York Square Condominiums in Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood were designed by Cecil Baker + Partners. With elements reminiscent of a brick factory building, the structure fits well with its more historical surroundings. The benefits of this newer construction are modern windows, lots of balconies and for some penthouses, wraparound terraces — definitely hard to come by in a real factory-loft conversion. York Square Condominiums is a U-shaped building with a landscaped and hardscape courtyard leading to an inviting lobby. The reception area is sleekly modern with clean lines and materials.

    The condos themselves feature wood floors, cement-panel ceilings (better for soundproofing between units) and lots of windows. Quite a few of the York Square Condominiums have outdoor space – a decent-sized terrace for a bit of al fresco dining — and some also have iconic views of the Ben Franklin Bridge. Commuters who need to get to New Jersey can hop on I-676 in a minute from this building.

    York Square Condos has an underground parking garage for about one-third of its 60 units. The gym is on the small side. That said, the simplicity of the building’s amenities keeps condo fees on the low side. The area around the building is Old City through and through with beautiful streetscapes, cobblestone streets and important historical sites a short walk away. Franklin Square is nearby as is the Race Street Pier, two beautiful green spaces for recreation and relaxation.

After all, the neighborhood is home to Independence National Historical Park and the many buildings where our Founding Fathers hammered out and debated the principles that guided the founding of the United States of America.Many cobblestone streets still exist....
