New luxury towers springing up across Philly mean more opportunities to live in top neighborhoods surrounded by first-class amenities. But penthouse spaces remain rarefied occasions for a select few. Here, a closer look inside two posh penthouses at 500 Walnut (500walnut.net) and The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia (ritzcarlton.com/en/residences) currently on the market.
Listed at $32 million, The Penthouse at 500 Walnut is the most expensive piece of residential real estate to ever hit the market in Philadelphia. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase the most coveted piece of real estate in Philadelphia’s history,” says the current owner of the penthouse, Infinite Views One LLC, noting its 4,000 square feet of outdoor space, private elevators and views of Independence Hall.
THE RESIDENCES AT THE RITZ-CARLTON, PHILADELPHIA
For the first time ever, the 46th-floor penthouse is available here. The full-floor, 10,000-square-foot home, which includes additional outdoor space, is fetching $12 million. The hotel-level amenities and views of William Penn atop City Hall? Priceless.
