Known simply by Philadelphians as "1830", the condominium building sits on the south of Rittenhouse Square and was the first high rise to appear on the Square back in the mid 1920's. Originally an apartment building- this Beaux Art styled building is hailed as one of the finest examples of pre-war architecture amongst the condo set here in Philadelphia. The condos at 1830 Rittenhouse are unique in the fact that very few- if any of the condos in the building are alike...having been broken up and added onto over the years. What few know is that there are two penthouse units here- and both are only accessible by taking the elevator to the 18th floor- then walking up a flight of stairs to reach those two condos....when built- these were the maid's quarters/apartments for the "help" in the building....and 1830 is the last remaining condominium building in town that have elevator attendants. The condos range in size from 1000 sq ft one bedroom units to entire floor condos which are over 5000 sq. ft. in size. I believe there may even be a few bi-level condos in the building....but I am pulling that from a shaded memory from years ago. The condos at 1830 Rittenhouse do not offer parking, but other options around Rittenhouse Sq. do exist. The doormen at 1830 are nothing short of kind and helpful. I have sold a few units in the building over the years- just know that there are not a lot of units in the building (41 total). A really fantastic groovy pre-war condo building with lots of cache and some terrific views of Rittenhouse Square.

1830 Rittenhouse Square Condos - My Two Cents
Ok...here is what I would call a "destination" condo building. I have had more than one buyer in my career wait for a condo in the building to become available. 1830 Rittenhouse sits on the south side of Rittenhouse Sq. and is the "grande dame" of the pre-war condo set here in Center City. Built in the early 1920's, "1830" was the first high rise to be built on Rittenhouse Sq. and retains its crown as the condo building with the most "cache" to Philadelphians. Almost anyone I speak with who knows Rittenhouse Square knows of 1830... truly holds a place in many Philadelphians hearts. Of the total of only 41 units in the building...and you are never ever going to find two condos at 1830 that are identical. Many units have been combined and split with neighboring condos. There is even a bi-level condo in the building if I recall correctly.
Condos that face the square are going to sell at a premium price and generally they are the largest condos in the building. Not uncommon to find a "full floor" condominium unit at 1830 either. What I find interesting are the two penthouse condos- originally built for the "staff" and they are located on the top floor of the building and require owners to take an elevator to the 17th floor and walk up the stair tower to the 19th floor. Also interesting is the fact that no one lives on the 18th floor....it is used for residents storage. 1830 is nothing short of a wonderful building and managed by the best (David Fineman) management company in town. Condo fees are not cheap, and neither are the condos. Rarely available for sale...buy one if you can find one! No pool, no gym, and no parking. And that is not a problem for resale at 1830.
I have sold 6 units of the 41 units in the building in my career.
