Philadelphia Condo Building Updates – Summer 2017

Filed under: Center City Real Estate,Real Estate: Condominiums,State of Marketplace — Center City Philadelphia Real Estate Agent @ 2:13 pm

Here is what I am told. Verify for yourself…

The owner occupancy ratio at 2101 Chestnut is 10% – 90% renters.

Waterfront Sq. is enacting a limitation on renters.

The Savoy at 1806 S. Rittenhouse has an assessment coming down the pike that is close to $28 a square foot. Needed, and in the long run, a good thing as values will climb!

Dockside at 717 S. Columbus Blvd. has been recently approved for conventional financing.

The Philadelphian at 2401 Pennsylvania Ave. is making progress on the installation of new exterior balcony rails throughout.

Many more buildings are going non-smoking. Here are a few:
Society Hill Towers, Center City One, Academy House, The Rittenhouse, The Hopkinson House, The Murano, The Dorchester. Look for that list to grow substantially.

Hopkinson House is nearing completion of it’s lobby work.

2601 (2601 Pennsylvania Ave.) is upgrading it’s steam systems.

Penn’s Landing Square (130 Spruce St.) is doing work to it’s underground garage.

HUGE Lack of Philadelphia Condo Inventory in Specific Market Segments

Filed under: Center City Real Estate,For Buyers,For Sellers,Real Estate: Condominiums,State of Marketplace — Center City Philadelphia Real Estate Agent @ 11:52 am

So we hear all the time about the glut of condos on the market. But that is not always true in specific segments of the Philadelphia condo market. For instance, if we look at four very popular existing condo buildings here in downtown Philadelphia we see that the opposite is the case.

According to TrendMLS, on September 20, 2011 there are only three (3) active condominiums for sale in the following buildings:

-The Dorchester at 226 W. Rittenhouse Square

The Hopkinson House at 604 S. Washington Square

-Independence Place (Buildings I AND II) at 233 and 241 S. 6th St.

-The Wanamaker House at 2020 Walnut St.

So out of nearly 2000 possible available units, there are 3 units for sale. Go figure.
