Two-thirds of the ultra-luxurious 500 Walnut tower behind Independence Hall have already been sold before topping out, but there are still some condos up for grabs, like this 4,300-square-foot unit that wants a cool $6,959,000.
With that price tag, unit #1600 has become one of the priciest homes for sale in the city—and it hasn’t even been built out. At 4,300 square feet, it is one of the larger condos in the 26-story tower developed by Tom Scannapieco. Listed by Mary Genovese Colvin and Margaux Pelegrin, the condo features three bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and two terraces, which no doubt will offer impressive views of Independence Hall.
500 Walnut is one of Scannapieco’s most exclusive, luxurious projects to date, with just 35 residences in the whole Cecil Baker+Partners-designed building. In June 2016, the sale of its penthouse for $17.85 million became the most expensive residential transaction in the history of Philadelphia. There are only one or two residences per floor, and a robotic car-parking garage brings resident’s vehicles to them with a click of a button.
For #1600, while the basic floor plan is there, the unit is still a blank slate, so whoever purchases the property will be able to design and customize his or her own digs. Those who have already bought and designed their homes in the tower will start moving in this summer.
