Don't set your sights so low--maybe you'll be able to afford a walk-in closet!

Philadelphia ranks 7th when it comes to cities with most Millionaires in the US, ranked only behind NYC, LA, Chi, DC, Boston and SF.

There is a lot of wealth in the Philly area. And remember, you don't have to be a millionaire to afford a $1 million home.

This report goes thru 2013 - a little more up to date.

Says Philly is #7 with 136,000 approx. which is up 67% since 2008.

Houston and San Jose are on our heels though.

I really love this concept. If this is executed right, it will be a phenomenal building. I probably prefer it to 10 Rit. I was just at a friend's party at 10 Rit on the 22nd floor. It's a phenomenal living space with great views (rare for Philly) but I like that this offers more outdoor space for most units. The downside though is small units. There are some very tiny 2 bedrooms at 1029 sq feet. We would not be comfortable in that and would need to upgrade to the 4 bedroom and use 1 bedroom as a den and one as an office. But even the smaller units will fit the bill perfectly for some people.

$700,000 for the 1 bedrooms? That's steep. Even 10 Rit was selling some of the smallest, least nice 2 bedrooms for around $800,000 (though some of the choicest 2 bedrooms on the higher floors at over $2 mil). If the 746 sq feet 1 bedrooms are actually sold for $700,000, that's close to $1,000 per sq foot. A tough sell for a 1 bedroom. And probably the most expensive 1 bedrooms to hit this city (Most expensive 1 bedrooms at 10 Rit topped out at $695,000, but I think they were bigger).


Construction/ground-breaking still slated to begin in January?

I suspect it's all dependent on presales. Once this converted from rental to condo, the whole financing structure changes so the project probably needs to meet significant presales hurdles in order to begin construction.

Thanks. Makes sense. And who knows? Maybe they'll be able to command those prices. But I'm thinking it's not likely. Philly is exploding, but I don't think we're at a point where we can sell small 1 bedrooms at almost $1000 per square foot. No matter the amenities, finishes, location or other selling points.

On a walk around CC today, I noticed the car lot where one riverside will be built has been emptied of cars. Is this going to start soon?

Yep! Originally they were going to close the lot by the end of October. I think they officially closed it January 15th.

Any further developments on this one? Noticed it on your list of sites under prep.

Just went by. The lot is indeed closed, but there is no machinery on site yet.

I agree. I just sold a 1 bedroom at 410 Society Hill for $525k and its just under 1000 sq feet. It has really nice everything (and parking) but we're not at $1000/sq foot for 1 bedrooms. Hopefully one day not too far off.

Really thinking this one is going to get started any day now. No need to keep that lot empty and producing no income for a month now.

Just talked to my Realtor friend who is marketing this development. The sales office is opening March 4th. Ground breaking scheduled for mid-march depending on the weather. Good to assume ground will be broke by early April at the latest.

Nice [moving] panoramic shot of the skyline on the referenced website. The skyline is only going to get better and better...
