Condo Building of the Week
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be revisiting a blog feature from August 2012 – “Top 10 High Rise Condo Buildings,” which highlighted several of Philadelphia’s luxury properties. This time around, we’ll take more of an in-depth look at each building’s history, along with updated information on current sales & vacancies. Last week, we featured The Ayer in Washington Square. This week, we continue with the historic Society Hill Towers.
Address: 200-220 Locust St. Philadelphia PA 19106
Neighborhood: Society Hill
Construction began on the three-building development back in 1957, in association with the City Planning Commission’s initiatives to redevelop Society Hill. Development concluded on the three, 31 floor, high-rise buildings in 1964. The towers inaugurated on October 21, 1964, originally as rental units, and converted to condominiums in 1979. The Philadelphia Register of Historic Places added the Society Hill Towers on March 10, 1999.
Categorized as “Brutalist” style, the towers are constructed of poured-in-place concrete, with each apartment featuring floor-to-ceiling windows.
For further insight on the historic buildings’ layout & design, take a virtual tour of the towers.
The three towers include 627 total units. Each building features 31 floors, offering studio, 1 bedroom & 2 bedroom units. Amenities include 2 story parking garage, pool, picnic area, storage, fitness center & washer/dryer access. Buildings are pet friendly.
