Update on The Ellington Condos at 1500 Chestnut. Always has been a well managed buildling- See for yourself:
Last year the building completed two (2) major capital improvement projects: 1) They replaced our air-conditioning cooling tower up on the roof; and, 2) They did a complete tear off and replacement of the main roof. (no special assessment necessary).
Also, last fall, they got a new commercial tenant in the 8,000 s.f. basement space – the Philadelphia School of Massage and Bodywork (check it out – http://phillyschoolofmassage.com ) It’s the only massage school in Philadelphia.
The Board and management are working on another huge improvement project which is to completely upgrade the building’s heating and air-conditioning system. While the actual work may not begin for 2-3 years from now, they are working with engineering firms to determine the best method for reducing their energy costs.
“Miss Ellie” still mans the front desk with her effervescent smile and gracious caring demeanor. Just about everyone on the staff has been here 8+ years and they continue to work together as a great team with a common goal – making the Ellington the safest and most well-kept vertical housing community in Center City!
To Which I say: Touche- Ellington Mangagement!!
