The Laurel Rittenhouse Square, a new ultra-luxury residential tower, has topped out in Philadelphia. Upon completion, the 599-foot-tall building will be the tallest residential tower in the city.
Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB) designed the 583,000-sf, 48 story tower, which will feature 65 condominium units, 184 luxury apartment units, and 44,000-sf of ground-floor retail. The tower is crowned with a glass-encased structural frame that will be illuminated in the evening.
Two unique amenity programs were designed for the project: one for the condo owners and one for the apartment residents. The condo amenity deck will be located on the 26th floor and is designed to be a peaceful retreat from the city below. Amenities will include an indoor pool, fitness and yoga studios, and a lounge with a terrace overlooking Rittenhouse Square.
A larger amenity program for the apartments is located on the 3rd floor. It is geared toward young professionals and seeks to foster a sense of community among residents. Apartment amenities will include an outdoor pool and landscaped deck, a fitness club, a game room with a demonstration kitchen/bar, and a library and music room.
The Laurel is slated for completion in Fall 2022.
