It started with a vision. To create a private, lush sanctuary in the heart of the cultural and arts mecca of Center City. A home for the enlightened. Those who are both patrons of the arts and connoisseurs of architecture. Arthaus is the realization of that vision.
Set aptly on the Avenue of the Arts, this 47-story masterpiece is steps from the Kimmel Center and a short walk from hundreds of Philadelphia’s most fashionable shops and finest restaurants – proof that whatever one can imagine, one can make real.
Gazing up at Arthaus, you are struck by this monumental tour de force, adorning the Philadelphia skyline like a sculpture of glass and concrete.
The name Arthaus was inspired by the Bauhaus movement – a period of architecture and design whose most basic tenet was that form should follow function. Excess was replaced by beauty that could also meet the needs and desires of real people. One example: The building’s tiered “bundled box” design is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it gives every unit its own corner, with two full exterior walls of breathtaking views.
Arthaus isn’t just about surrounding yourself in the beauty of your own haus; it’s about having instant access to a vast gallery of curated amenities, outdoor green spaces and unparalleled experiences. It’s about living among a vibrant community of art patrons and artists. And, it’s about being an integral part of Philadelphia’s art scene.
Arthaus was conceived by developer Carl E. Dranoff, founder and CEO of Dranoff Properties, Inc. For connoisseurs of architecture, the name represents integrity, sophistication, ingenuity — and an attention to detail that is literally transforming the city of Philadelphia. A major force in urban rejuvenation for more than four decades, Dranoff is the leading authority on luxury condominiums throughout the region.
Patrons of fine art know to look for the signature. This one belongs to Eugene Kohn, a Philadelphia native who has become one of the world’s most recognized and acclaimed architects. His portfolio spans more than 40 countries. He’s the man behind the expansion of New York City’s Museum of Modern Art. In Philadelphia, his portfolio includes the University of Pennsylvania, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Four Seasons. And his company, KPF, has won AIA’s National Chapter Honor Award for Architecture nine times.
At Dranoff, there is no action unless there is a vision - one that embraces what others sometimes deem impossible. It’s about being bold enough to trust our instincts when it comes to truly transforming a community. Being an agent of change and reimagining urban neighborhoods takes persistence and perception. We’re proud of our track record of not just identifying opportunities, but also creating them.

The moment you set foot inside your new haus, you’ll know you’ve arrived. The high ceilings and big windows flood the interiors with natural light.

Lush rooftop gardens. A 75-ft. four seasons swimming pool with adjoining hot tub. Even a dog run for your best friend. At Arthaus, we’ve created an oasis of fine living, filled with outdoor and indoor areas to exercise, to socialize, to relax and to play. Just imagine yourself in a sky garden strolling through trees, past a reflecting pool, seeing some friends laughing by an open fire pit — and realizing, you haven’t even left your building. Whether its flowers or vegetables, where else can you find planting beds and all seasons green house to meet all your gardening needs?
At Arthaus, our purpose is to make it simple for you to do anything you ever want to do. And to make everything you don’t want to do a thing of the past.
