Investment Overview
Rittenhouse Realty Advisors extends to qualified investors the opportunity to acquire the fee simple interest in 25 South Van Pelt Street, a Rittenhouse Square development site with the by-right potential for luxury condominiums truly unique in size, design, and location. This former school for wayward students is the perfect location to develop condos as there is a pressing demand for high-end residences in Philadelphia’s most popular and affluent neighborhood. Comprised of two connected buildings, one built in 1898 and the other built in 1929, 25 South Van Pelt Street is an existing 14,436 square foot building situated on a roughly 6,870 square foot lot with incredibly favorable CMX–4 zoning. The 1898 structure has historical designation through the City of Philadelphia, however, it is contributing, meaning that the façade of the building cannot be altered without the approval of the Historical Commission. The 1929 building contains the former cafeteria as well as the former gymnasium which boast 20+ foot ceilings and does not have any historical designation.

Center City Philadelphia’s population now ranks 2nd in the entire country (behind Manhattan). According to REIS, “Center City is one of the most vibrant residential downtowns in the United States. The average asking rent increased 5.2% during the year (2016), with the average effective rent up 6.0% to $2,089 per month.” Rittenhouse Square commands the highest average rent of any neighborhood in Center City, and is widely considered the top location in Philadelphia in terms of exclusivity, desirability and highest housing costs.
