Center City Philadelphia Condos
Rittenhouse Square, one of William Penn's original five city squares, was known as the
Southwest Square until 1825 when it was renamed for the astronomer-clockmaker, David Rittenhouse.
Rittenhouse Square has always had its share of cache. The first house facing the Square
was erected in 1840. The first high-rise Rittenhouse Square condo building, "1830",
was built in the 1920's. In 1913 the Square's entrances, central plaza with the stone
railings, pool, and fountain were designed. To have lived near or on the Square was a mark
of prestige. Though much of the surrounding neighborhood area is known as The "Rittenhouse
Square area", the square itself is a highly sought after location for many searching
