City Hall is one of Philadelphia’s most distinctive and exquisite buildings, and though there’s plenty of opportunity to get news about what happens inside, it’s not often residents can get a detailed look at the famed Second Empire exterior without closeup photographs–or maybe a rogue helicopter.
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, however, has numerous rooms with a view–none so gorgeous as this condo that’s now on the market for $1.35 million. While some Ritz residents are making plans to sell because they fear their views will be blocked when (if) the planned W Hotel/Westin Element gets built at 15th and Chestnut, this unit seems safe from impending construction doom.
Along with all the other amenities one expects from living at the Ritz–24/7 concierge, fitness center with pool, landscaped garden, residents’ lounge and media room, outdoor terrace, etc.–this three-bedroom has luxury appliances (Viking, Miele, Bain); a balcony and comes with a parking spot. But it’s those views that make it. Other condos in Center City will have the same perks, but none will have those views.
