Center City Philadelphia Condos
Lovely and green, Society Hill is one of the most historic neighborhoods in the Center City Philadelphia real estate market.
Society Hill is not a hill. It was the Free Society of Traders that gave its name to Society
Hill. In 1683 a sawmill, a glasshouse and a tannery populated much of Society Hill. The area
was not pretty in the early 1960's, but today it is the very model of urban renewal
in a historic setting. Today Society Hill extends from the Delaware River to Washington Square
and from Walnut Street to South Street. The charm of Society Hill is that its homes are lived in
by Philadelphians who delight in 18th and 19th century houses. It is a vital part of the city.
Whereas the Rittenhouse Square section of Philadelphia real estate may be characterized as an
urban dwellers delight, Society Hill is more green, and quiet. In the 18th century Society Hill
was removed from the avenues of commerce and given the residential character it retains today.
From high-rises to brownstones, Society Hill condos are as diverse as their architecture. In the quieter area of Center City, Society Hill's tranquil setting makes it a desirable location. Society Hill Towers, the Hopkinson House, Independence Place, The Moravian, and Abbotts Square are the major high rise buildings in this neighborhood. The recent addition of 500 Walnut is a welcome addition to the existing condo inventory here in downtown Philadelphia.
