For those of you seeking brand new luxury rental options on Rittenhouse Square, today is essentially your day. By that we mean, 19 units at the revamped Alison Building at 1805 Walnut Street (above the Barnes and Noble) are ready to go and we’ve got the first pics of the model unit (7A), which overlooks Rittenhouse Square.

A rep from Allan Domb real Estate tells us that 1/3 of the units have already been rented, including the incredible penthouse apartment that was being marketing at $20,000 per month. That doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the view from the terrace of said off-the-market penthouse overlooking the Square. Here’s what that looks like:

The apartments, designed by Joanne Hudson Associates, are unfurnished and come in a variety of floor plans and price ranges:


  • One bedrooms start at 725-square-feet and start at $2,650 per month
  • One bedrooms plus dens start at 1,485-square-feet and start at $5,250 per month
  • Two bedrooms start at 1,326-square-feet and start at $5,000 per month
  • Two bedrooms plus dens start at 1,920-square-feet and start at $7,950 per month

As we told you last month, these places will be chockfull of high-end amenities. Kitchen packages include appliances by either Bosch or SubZero, Wolf and Miele, Caesarstone quartz counters and Downsview matte lacquer cabinets. Hardwood floors are found throughout and, of course, the marble baths look pretty damn good.
