SLIDESHOW: New Luxury Construction Overlooks Schuylkill River Park
Acclaimed developer Carl Dranoff and famed architect Cecil Baker are at it again. The latest luxury tower to catch our attention? One Riverside. At 22 floors, the new construction will boast 82 units (two to six on each floor), along with bevy of hotel-like amenities. Situated inside a park, the building is the perfect amalgamation of city and suburb.
Perhaps its most newsworthy quality, One Riverside touts a swoon-worthy address that toes the line between Center City and University City. And as such, it’s mere blocks from nearly all of Philadelphia’s major hospitals, the expressway and Rittenhouse Square. It also overlooks Schuylkill River Park and sits directly adjacent to the Schuylkill River trail. This quadrant of prime geography is complemented by the architecture of Cecil Baker, who has maximized the property both indoors and outdoors by ensuring it doesn’t obstruct the skyline and instead seamlessly blends with the rest of the riverside landscape, making it a welcomed neighbor for a dynamic neighborhood.
Beyond its address, One Riverside boasts all of the features and amenities that we’ve come to expect from a Dranoff-developed property. Every convenience has been accounted for and maximized, contributing to a resort-like ambiance. Residents have access to a 24-hour attended lobby with concierge service, a chauffeured house car, private motor court, cold storage facility for grocery deliveries, commercial-grade laundry for oversized items (never send your duvet out again!), and a stunning hospitality suite that’s ideal for out-of-town guests. There’s also valet garage parking and secure bicycle storage (believe us, you’ll need it with the Schuylkill River Trail so close).
Additional facilities at One Riverside include sanctuary-like private gardens, a terrace with outdoor kitchen, a Club Room with fireplace and catering kitchen (ideal for hosting meetings and events), an executive boardroom and a fully equipped business center. Meanwhile, health and wellness buffs will be thrilled to learn there’s a 60-foot indoor lap pool with adjacent sunroom, a state-of-the-art fitness center with locker rooms, and saunas and steam rooms.
Unsurprisingly, the units’ interiors are equally luxe. Scroll through the slideshow below for a sneak peek:
