On the Southwest corner of Rittenhouse Square, The Dorchester at Rittenhouse Condominiums is a perfectly placed location for Philadelphians to live. The condominium was built in 1963 by Milton I. Schwartz & Associates. This architect was involved in many known and currently existing Philadelphia projects from 1959 to 1974; including Center City One, 1500 Locust Street, and Park Towne Place. Milton Schwartz also made contributions to the Chicago skyline, as well as his hotel designs for the famous Las Vegas strip.
The Dorchester sets itself apart from the rest of the many downtown Philadelphia apartments, and there are many reasons why. The architectural style is considered modernism, with its skyscraper appearance, L-shape, and concrete structure. This style was inspired by the famously historic London Dorchester, and was intentionally built to reflect the London building. The London Dorchester is known for its incredibly extensive history in England dating back to the 11th century, and for the high-profile guests who expect the “finer things in life.”
The Dorchester floor plans fit any individual’s preferences, whether you are looking for a bigger space for your family or a more cozy unit for one. Luxury studios, one bedroom, two bedroom, and three bedroom condos for sale and rent are available for your floor plan. Many of these units include a great deal of square footage for the city, large closets, balconies with a view, and a glorious open floor plan that has stunning natural light due to the sizeable windows.
The amenities that The Dorchester offers are top-tier for the Philadelphia area.
