The majority of the residences will have unobstructed views of one of the best parks in the country, iconic city hall and the magnificent Philadelphia skyline providing the ultimate in Center City living in Philly.
Celebrate the Past
The city’s founder, William Penn, provided Philadelphia with five public squares along with a prominent Center Square. Mayor Richardson Dilworth was the catalyst for the renaissance of Center City that began in the 1950s. In recognition of his contribution, the Plaza was renamed in his honor in 1977.
Create the Future
It has been said that public spaces define great cities, and the newly conceived Dilworth Plaza promises to be a destination within Philadelphia. Already recognized as one of the best urban places in America, The Center City District commissioned a new design for Dilworth Plaza, engaging the internationally recognized landscape architect OLIN. With an investment of $55 million, the Plaza will be transformed from a place that people only pass through, to an attractive park that will serve as the centerpiece for the city leaving you with a feeling of ultra luxury living in Philadelphia. The Plaza will consist of shaded sitting areas, a lush great lawn, outdoor markets and café, as well as an animated water feature that can also be used as an event space or seasonal skating rink. Glass entrances to the regional transportation system will frame City Hall, welcoming commuters each day and glowing softly at night. The Plaza will be animated by a specially commissioned work of public art created by internationally known artist Janet Echelman. It will trace the path of trains in the transportation hub below by integrating a colorful atomized mist into the Plaza’s water feature.
A Gateway to Transit
City Hall sits atop four levels of transit infrastructure providing connections to Amtrak and the regional rail lines at Suburban Station. This convergence of transit lines offers residents’ easy access from their downtown Philadelphia luxury condominium to the city’s Sports Complex, main business corridors and university campuses.
