I became familiar with 2401 in the late 1980s when my best friend Bob lived in a studio in the "A" wing. Since that time. We've sold dozens and dozens of homes at 2401. Friendly in-house management staff and over sixty employees run one of the best-managed buildings in town. A close examination of the grounds, the upkeep, and a commitment to reinvestment can confirm the fact.

The sense of "community" in the building is rare. I believe that if you're looking for a condo with a built-in social scene, 2401 is tops in Center City. Finding another address that offers so many social activities for its residents would be tough.

There is monthly rental parking in the basement at 2401(valet). The shuttle that takes a loop around the shopping district is very helpful, and the building offers owners a laundry list of activities. I have often joked that the building could blast off into space and be self-supportive as it houses a pharmacy, a restaurant/bar, a grocery store, a bank, a doctor, etc., etc. Oh, and two pools- one indoor and one outdoor.

I first rode the 2401 bus in 1988 when Lionel was the driver. Though the bus and the driver have changed, the signature bus service of The Philadelphian continues to operate and impress. Hands down, the best bus service of any building in Center City. The bus runs Monday - Saturday from early morning until departing for its last loop at 10:00 PM. Check out the bus route here and the bus schedule here!

What condo fees at The Philadelphian cover: electricity, gas, water, sewer, and use of amenities such as the bus service to Center City, the fitness center, both the indoor and outdoor pools, and core cable TV and internet services.

I know MANY people who live in the building who would be happy to chat with a prospective buyer regarding a purchase at 2401 Pennsylvania Ave. Aka- The Philadelphian. 

"The Philadelphian is the largest single building in Philadelphia. This condominium includes an on-site grocery store, bar, restaurant, bank, lawyer, pharmacy, and much more!"
