The Barclay Condos

237 South 18th St. Philadelphia, PA 19103

The Barclay is a beautiful Rittenhouse Square landmark that had undergone a significant renovation a decade or two ago. Elegant and stately, this Pre-War style Rittenhouse Square condo building has a wide variety of unit sizes available, the Barclay exemplifies the luxury of a by-gone era. True Penthouses exist, though rarely available, in the beautiful piece of Philadelphia real estate. Though most all units are flats, a few bi-level condominium units exist in the building. Sitting on the corner of 18th and Rittenhouse Streets, the Barclay is grand in its stately appearance. Some of the largest condos on Rittenhouse Square can be found in the Barclay.

Originally opened as a hotel in 1929, a local developer succeeded in bringing an old Philadelphia gem back to life here a few others before 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 Barclay is home to Barclay Prime Restaurant, and sits right next to the trendy Parc Restaurant- both being Steven Starr places- and again, very popular. What few know about the Barclay is that the easternmost penthouses are indeed penthouse condos as they are set back from the facade, and all have a hint of outside space- kinda' groovy. The Barclay condos have a fitness center, 24-hour doorman, and a Towncar, which is at the disposal of owners.
