These wonderful Philadelphia Condominiums have soaring 10 foot ceilings and oversized yet energy-efficient, fully operational windows. Most units have spectacular city views. Ample storage and closet space in every unit. The building offers a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa as well as a 24-hour concierge and maintenance. We like the Ellington because it offers a wonderfully urban setting, in the Rittenhouse Square area, and has become very popular with those looking for a modern, newly constructed high rise condominium in Rittenhouse Square area with lovely finishes.

The Ellington Condominiums at 1500 Chestnut St. - My Experience and Two Cents

Now here is one well managed building in an area that is exploding in terms of development and change. Perfectly situated near Jefferson Medical, Hahnemann and U of Penn. The size of the units (no studios) are perfect for the market. Limited views in many of the condos, but the fit and finish are strong for the price segment in which the building targets. All penthouse units on the 20th floor are bi-level. I have often said that the Ellington condos at 1500 Chestnut St. have the shortest "DOM" (days on market) numbers in the city...and I believe that to be true. The units, especially in the spring market, fly off the shelves when listed. The condo building has a smallish gym and meeting/board room for owners and the Ellington is pet friendly. Common areas are kept in top notch condition and very well maintained. Front desk staff is always friendly which isn't always the case here in many Center City condo buildings like the Ellington. The developer was smart (in my opinion) when he built the condos because he didn't use carpet in any of the bedrooms and used a nice grade for this kitchens and baths- they have held up well over the past decade and most units in the building show pretty well- which again is rare for condo in Center City.

Mark says, "I have sold more than a dozen condos at the Ellington- And for good reason....the building represents a smart buy if you are looking for a centralized location with a doorman."
