Hawthorne Lofts at 1201 Fitzwater is a newer rehabbed building that houses 53 unit condo and is located in one of the most accessible neighborhoods in Center City Philadelphia. This elevator-equipped condo building has it all, from gated parking (for specific condominiums) to granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and strong finishes throughout! The high ceilings and loft-style setup really help to add to the uniqueness of this old school building. With low condo fees and even lower taxes, these condominiums from the Rufo Organization are sure to please everyone! Not to mention Hawthorne's breathtaking views of downtown Philadelphia from its massive community roof deck!

A few things most folks don't know about Hawthorne Lofts

  • 1) Floors 2, 3 and 4 have the same layout and floor plans. Only the first-floor condominiums are unique/one of a kind.
  • 2) Hawthorne Condominiums were converted from the old Nathan Hawthorne school.
  • 3) Though the entrance is on 12th street, the legal address is 1201-1215 Fitzwater.
  • 4) The first-floor amenity area is top-notch and has no rival in the mid-rise condominium segment of our condo market.
  • 5) Washer and Dryers are free. Common to everyone and NOT coin-operated.

Hawthorne Lofts - Condos at 712 S. 12th St. (aka- 1201 Fitzwater St) - What I know....

I have been involved with Hawthorne Lofts as the original listing agent, and sold 30+/- of these condos- either on the listing side or the sale side- and in some instances on both sides of the transaction.
Hawthorne Lofts in the Hawthorne area of Center City houses 53 condos and about 75% of those condos have parking attached (in an open parking lot adjacent to building- just out the back door). Units range from studio sized condos to two bedroom condos. All units have one bathroom, except (I think it is the units ending in 06- 306, 406, etc) have two full bathrooms.
Almost every condo at Hawthorne Lofts is bi-level- though the majority of the units on the first floor are known as flats. The building boasts one of the largest common roof decks in Center City Philadelphia- you could land a plane on that roof :-) The common amenities include a pool table and flatscreen TV in the community room, as well as a well equipped gym, sauna and steam room. No units at Hawthorne Loft Condos have their own washer and dryer, but the developer compensated quite nicely by doing a room with about 10 washers and 10 dryers- all full size new units that do NOT require owners to pay for such- it is included in the condo fees.

Each condo at Hawthorne Lofts has it's own HVAC system and all have security systems as well. In addition- every condo has it's own hot water tank. No gas service to the building. 1201 Fitzwater St. is a pet friendly building. Great proximity to Jefferson Medical and the price ranges of these condos are a great fit for the market in which it appeals.
