According to all those real-estate commercials, it’s a buyer’s market. So why not consider snatching up a little piece of the city?
Open and ready, 10 Rittenhouse is the city’s most-wanted neighborhood’s new darling. Robert A.M. Stern designed the building — he also worked on a little something called the Comcast Center — that features high ceilings, massive windows and drool-worthy views of the tree-speckled park below. The last new construction to grace the square, the units are designed with a seamless blend of classic lines and modern amenities; the kitchens sport raised-panel European cabinets and massive, chef-quality appliances, the baths heavy-veined marble and sleek air-jet tubs. If that does woo you, what about rich hardwoods, pre-wired technology and terraces perfect for a nightcap?
Outside the condos, the perks go on. Expert concierge, indoor pool and a state-of-the-art fitness center and sauna are included. An on-site valet parking garage keeps cars close at hand, while those without a set of wheels can call upon the chauffeur-driven Mercedes S5 50 to take them across town.
And that’s good, because one of the best selling points of this building is the location. Coffee at La Columbe in the morning, lunch at a sidewalk table at Parc, errands along Walnut Street, then perhaps a show at the Kimmel Center and late-night Manhattans at XIX, and all within blocks of your comfy, fluffy bed. Where do we sign?
