Arguably, the most recognizable condominium building name in Center City Philadelphia. Everyone has heard of the Dorchester. This wonderful building offers studios, one, two, and three bedroom units. Rental and guest parking is available for a fee in the basement levels of 224 W. Rittenhouse Sq. and there is a BEAUTIFUL rooftop pool (membership required). I've never heard of any condo in the entire building as being "dark"...Wonderfully oversized windows provide great views and light from almost every unit. Similar to the Wanamaker House Condos, the Dorchester is a twenty-four-hour doorman building. Dorchester condos are a consistently fabulous buy for those looking for a residence on "The Square."

Heads Up

  • Most buyers don't know that YOU own your windows- not the condominium association
  • I believe value is more heavily based upon the interior condition.
  • Condominiums at 224 w. Rittenhouse have fabulous rental potential. Likely the best in the city.

My Two Cents about 224-226 W. Rittenhouse Square

Easily one of my top top picks for investment potential over the long haul. It is not like you are going to find a killer deal in the building unless you find one of the rare remaining original units- but over the long haul I would be hard pressed to believe that you are ever going to have a problem renting or selling your condo- in almost any market conditions. A plethora of condo sizes and layouts to choose from- some with views of Rittenhouse Square and many with balconies. Stunning rooftop swimming pool and rental parking in the basement at 224 W. Rittenhouse and located right on Rittenhouse Square. The Dorchester has the highest name recognition I have found in any condo building in Philadelphia- everyone knows the Dorchester. And every spring, my phone rings off the hook with renters trying to find an available unit in the building... I wouldn't say the Dorchester condo units are overly glamorous, but the condos do almost have a mid-century modern feel that is so hot right now. Rehabbed units in the building are stunning. Know that the Dorchester condominium association is a bit different than many similar buildings in town by the fact that YOU own your exterior windows- and if you want them replaced, they are done by individual owners (For instance, the Hopkinson House and Philadelphian recently replaced all exterior windows in the building by doing an assessment. Not the case at 224 W. Rittenhouse aka The Dorchester Condos. Lastly, I do think the staff and management at the Dorchester is top notch- the building is well maintained.

*The Fair Housing Act allows residents of almost every type of property - apartments and condos - to have an emotional support dog or a specially trained service dog if you get the proper medical documentation from your doctor, despite restrictive Pet Policies. There are now many emotional support dogs in the building.
