There’s a lot to gawk at in 1919 Market, the 28-story tower residential tower that offers swanky amenities like a roof top pool and a wine-tasting room. But when the property officially opens in November, it may be the views that up the building’s wow factor.
Developed by Brandywine Realty Trust and LCOR, 1919 Market is the latest luxury residential high-rise to open in Philly. It began construction in 2014 and began moving in residents back in March. As of this week, it’s 63 percent leased.
A recent tour of the property gave Curbed Philly a sneak peek of the views from the 26th and 27th floors of the building, which will include 16 penthouses. The biggest penthouse, still under construction, clocks in at 1,458 square feet and features a wrap-around deck with views of West Philly and Center City.
The penthouses are the top tier of three rental options in the building, along with the Tower Collection and City Collection. In addition to their bigger square footage, the penthouses will include three bedrooms, varied custom cabinetry, and massive, custom-built walk-in closets.
The very top floor, though, is reserved for the building’s amenities and is already open to residents. It features a gym with views of the second Comcast Tower rising, a gourmet kitchen and dining room, a media room, a game simulation area, and a bar and billiards room.
Still in the works is the roof top pool, which was delayed as they wait for custom 8-foot-tall glass panels to be prepped and installed. In addition, the pool is deeper than originally planned.
Yet the November opening won’t keep folks from swimming—it’s designed so that the temperature can be increased up to 40 degrees warmer than the actual temperature. That will allow it to be a 3.5-season pool.
Rents range from $1,770 for a studio to $3,800 and up for a 2-bedroom. The penthouses will be available for lease in the next coming weeks.
