PHILADELPHIA | 500 Walnut | 116m | 380ft | 26 fl | T/O



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A “Glass Needle” Proposed By Independence Hall



Quote:
March 16, 2014

Overlooking Independence Square at 5th & Walnut, developer Tom Scannapieco plans to construct a $150 million, 26-story “glass-needle” condominium tower, reports The Inquirer. Being so close to the National Historical Park, the tower’s design—from Philadelphia architect Cecil Baker—must not interfere with one’s view towards Independence Hall from the Liberty Bell Center. Scannapieco, the developer behind the luxury 1706 Rittenhouse Square Street condos, is apparently aiming for “ultra-luxury” this time around. The market for units in the $10 million range is far from tapped, says Center City realtor Joanne Davidow, adding that she wouldn’t be surprised ‘if 500 Walnut sold out before the foundation was dug.’

The base of this one is pretty crappy. It would look the same in Miami.

Great location. I love that park and the area in general.

Cecil Baker On Buyers for 500 Walnut: "They Want New York"



Quote:
Architect Cecil Baker had some interesting remarks during his presentation in front of the architectural committee of the Philadelphia Historical Commission for the super-luxe 500 Walnut project at 5th and Walnut St.

"What we're selling to is a market that wants floor-to-ceiling glass. They want New York."

PlanPhilly reports the Committee member had "few comments about the design" of the 26-story tower that will rise just south of Independence Hall. The building is being developed by Tom Scannapieco, who knows a thing or two about what people are looking for in a luxury residence, and will be comprised of nearly 40 units and a ground floor retail space.

500 Walnut is Half-Reserved, And Has Our Full Attention



Quote:
500 Walnut, the ultra-luxurious 26-story tower behind Independence Hall, has officially broke ground, and will be welcoming its first occupants in spring 2017. And now we're just going to sit around twiddling our thumbs until the pinnacle of Philadelphian opulence gets built and someone's rich aunt invites us over. Brought to us by 'ultra-luxe' developer Tom Scannapieco, and designed by Cecil Baker + Partners, half the thing is already spoken for.
