Located at 237 S. 18th Street, The Barclay condos are a beautiful Rittenhouse Square landmark that has undergone major renovation in the past few years Elegant and stately, this Pre-War style Rittenhouse Square condo building has a very large variety of unit sizes available, the Barclay exemplifies the luxury of a by-gone era. True Penthouses exist, though rarely available, in the fine piece of Philadelphia real estate. Though most all units are flats, a few bi-level condominium units do exist in the building. Sitting on the corner of 18th and Rittenhouse Streets, the Barclay is grand in its stately appearance. Many of the Barclay condos have been combined, and some of the largest condos on Rittenhouse Square can be found in this lovely apartment building, which is located on the east side of the square- not far from shopping and many cultural attractions.

The Barclay Condominiums 237 S. 18th St.- My Two Cents

Originally opened as a hotel in 1929, and over the years had fallen into a state of disrepair..and in 1980 was the home of the FBI's Abscam sting operation, which exposed corruption in government. Allan Domb succeeded in bringing an old Philadelphia gem back to life...where a few others before him had failed. I have to be honest- I have never sold a unit in the building. But I do know that it houses some stunning pre-war condos of sheer magnitude in terms of size and interior finishes. The building required a MAJOR overhaul and that is exactly what it got. Though the building offers no parking- there are many options on the square.

The Barclay is home to Barclay Prime Restaurant, and sits right next to the very popular Parc Restaurant- both being Steven Starr places- and again, very popular. What few know about the Barclay is that the easternmost penthouses are truly penthouse condos as they are set back from the facade and all have a hint of outside space- really kinda' groovy. The Barclay condos have a fitness center, 24 hour doorman and a Towncar which is at the disposal of owners.
