Until now, those seeking out a true luxury residence in Philadelphia had to choose between location, floorplans, conveniences, design, finishes, amenities, and views.
You could have some…but not all.
One Riverside is the exceptional exception to the rule. With just 68 residences, the soaring 22-story glass skyscraper offers the best of everything in a location second-to-none. Built by premier developer Carl Dranoff and designed by acclaimed architect, Cecil Baker, it is a contemporary beacon for the neighborhood that is beautifully integrated into the texture and fabric of Fitler Square.
There are 4 to 6 units per floor, perfectly in keeping with the intimacy of the area.
Located at 25th and Locust in charming, historic Fitler Square, you are in the heart of urban living, walkable to everything, yet you are literally in a park, surrounded by grass, trees, gardens and paths. One Riverside is within easy walking distance of Rittenhouse Square, the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, 30th Street Station, Children’s Hospital and more. It’s one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the city because of its well-tended houses, friendly neighbors, walk-to-everywhere location and strong sense of community.
One Riverside sits at the entrance to the 60-mile Schuylkill River trail and the promenade to the South Street bridge. It is adjacent to Schuylkill River Park with a dog park, tennis and basketball courts and playgrounds. The naturally beautiful and serene community gardens also adjoin the property.
All but a few homes come with balconies or terraces that overlook the gardens, the river and the city skyline. The views are dramatic- and endless – with sweeping panoramas to the North, South, East and West. Surrounded by public parks and the river these views will always remain.
Expect the best…and then some. This is a world-class building designed and constructed with a laser-focus on quality and innovation. Floor plans are open and airy with sophisticated living spaces that are elegant, warm and inviting.
Floor-to-ceiling windows and ceiling heights of approximately 10 feet fill the homes with natural light (along with breathtaking views).
Chef’s kitchens will feature premium appliances, custom cabinetry and countertops and exquisite finishes. Baths, of marble and porcelain will be reminiscent of your favorite spa.
Everywhere you look, every corner you turn, will delight and surprise you.
Yet another reason why only One will do.
We offer on-site underground garage valet parking. No need to worry about the weather. You can go right from your home to your car.
A richly detailed lobby welcomes you home in style…with a concierge desk that is manned 24/7. Here, your packages will be held, along with any grocery deliveries – in our cold storage area.
