A Model representation is up on Building Philly's Facebook site. Looks really good. Hope the real product is just as nice!

Agree. It's not very big at all for a 4 bedroom. But it's priced less than many of the 2 bedrooms at 10 Rit. It will do well. Both with people that will use it as a 4 bedroom and those who will knock down some walls. By contrast, that's an awfully pricey 1 bedroom if the sizes on the website are correct. Listed at 745 square feet. So around $919 per square foot. I think they will have a hard time commanding that.

Full-page ad for this in today's Inquirer includes the following:

Quote:
In just one day, $13,860,000 worth of condominiums have been sold!

Because of the demand, we are scheduling appointments on a first come, first served basis.

I just saw that ad- very interesting. Of course that might mean they just "sold" 2 or 3 of the priciest units.

True. It could mean some $50 initial "deposits" on some $5 million condos.

Looks like groundbreaking (ceremony I'm assuming) is scheduled for May 13th.

I would usually agree but this is a pretty hot area, right on the Schuylkill Trail.Classy design .I can see this project doing very well.

One downfall of this tower is that it will definitely screw up the great skyline view from the South Street Bridge.

No thread is complete without at least one negative caveat, no matter how trivial.

Wait--have there been any wind-tunnel studies for this building?

Nah, not at all imo. The building will only block the Steve Debono really. I think the height is perfect for that location. From the look of the rendering it enhances the view a bit.
Those folks that purchase condos there are going to have ridiculously awesome views in every direction. Man...I wish I could afford something remotely close to that.

Hopefully this spurs even more demand for Schuylkill condos.

And even then, you'll apparently still be able to see the all-important blue cross.

I actually think this building will add some depth to the skyline view from the South Street Bridge. For a truly impressive skyline view, you don't want the skyline to appear to be merely a single line of towers.

LOL. You of all people to mention trivial points is the height of hypocrisy. Every other post by you is verbal pollution to the point of thread ruination.
