Independence Place Condos in Philadelphia

Independence Place Condos

233-241 South 6th Street Philadelphia, PA 19106

Independence Place Condos feature great light, generous balconies, and beautiful location on Washington Square. Rental parking in the basement isn't cheap, but it is available. Independence Place recently updated its hallways and common areas. Potential buyers often comment on the stellar views, ease of guest parking, and accommodating front door staff. The adjacent pool is not a part of these condos- but the proximity is excellent to that Philadelphia Sports Club gym.

The condos located at 233 and 241 S. 6th (Independence Place condos) are two different buildings and condo associations. They share a common entrance, driveway, rental parking garage, and front door staff and are known as Independence I and Independence II. The buildings here are two peas in the same pod, in my opinion. Most of the condos have balconies and in-unit washer/dryers and excellent closet space with an exterior look/curb appeal. Tower I residents have assigned storage lockers, and Tower II residents have deeded storage lockers. Rental parking in the basement is well run. I park here as my office building is adjacent to the condos here on Washington Square. There is a bicycle room located in Tower II. The buildings house condos from one-bedroom units to huge bi-level penthouses. There are a few larger one-bedroom plus "niche" units (which many owners have converted into an office or den). Several Realtors live in the building- which I think speaks volumes as to the appeal of the condos. Value retention, demand, and management seem to be above average when compared to many other similar buildings in town. The buildings were built in the early 1980s and are appreciated for their floor to ceiling windows and great views, among other things. I have sold probably a dozen units in the building over the years, and my buyers all have seemed to be happy with their decision to live at Independence Place.
