The plans include a 29-story building that will feature 321 apartments and 24,000 square feet of commercial space.  The high-end apartments will boast of full concierge service, a roof top fitness facility, pool, golf simulator and garage parking open to the public.

Philly.com also reported that the company who has spearheaded the project, Brandywine Realty Trust, has recently stated the apartments will be designed for high-end, wealthy tenants. Architectural company, Barton Partners, and Hunter Roberts Construction Group expect the project to be complete in 2016. Construction is planned to begin immediately. As of right now, information on apartment floor plans and leases have not yet been released.

As for the 24,000 square ft. commercial  space, leases have already been put in place for Independence Blue Cross and the CVS drugstore chain.

Plans for Potential Tower at Rittenhouse Square

Photo courtesy of Skyscraper Page.

Philadelphia Magazine recently reported the plans for a new tower in Rittenhouse Square by Irish developer, Castleway Properties.

The plans include a luxury condo tower and boutique hotel. In the past few years, other developers including Castleway Properties have proposed plans that fell through. This project will include a 150 unit tower with over 350,000 square feet of  residential space, 25,000 feet of retail space, a 200,000 square foot hotel and underground parking. Sounds like a great plan!

According to Philly Mag, the plans were presented to the Center City Residents’ Association. Hopefully at some point in the near future, groundbreaking will begin on the project. The L-shaped lot is a prime piece of real estate worth about $10 million.
