Tom Scannapieco is probably talking with Cecil Baker on the phone right now, discussing how he’s going to top himself yet again with a third super-luxury condominium tower.

If you’d rather not wait for the reveal, however, here’s an opportunity to live in his first one, which is no slouch either.

This full-floor unit on the eighth floor of 1706 Rittenhouse offers all the style and luxury you might want, right now.

Dining room

View from dining-room terrace

Its high-ceilinged interior spaces are studies in contemporary elegance, and the full-height windows fill them with natural light. You enjoy stunning views in all four directions, and terraces off the living and dining rooms let you and your guests enjoy the outdoors as well.


The kitchen puts American restaurant-quality appliances in an environment of European sleekness. It’s perfectly outfitted for casual everyday living and entertaining, as it’s one with a comfortable den (you’ll find a good-sized HDTV at the end of the island).

Master bedroom

Master bathroom

The master suite includes a spa-like marble bathroom, and two other bedrooms share a nicely outfitted hall bath.

Home theater

The fourth bedroom has been converted into a home theater. Pop some popcorn and invite your friends over for an evening of entertainment.

The building boasts top-flight amenities as well, including a round-the-clock doorman, a private health club, a heated indoor pool, sauna and steam rooms, bike storage and underground garage parking. Your unit comes with two parking spaces in that garage.

And if you ever get bored of just hanging at home (though it mystifies us why you would in a place like this), Rittenhouse Square and the many fine shops and restaurants of Rittenhouse Row are just steps away.
