Ten years ago, the Western Union building was just that- a 3 or 4 story commercial building that was vacant and long-neglected. There was a small diner if you recall on the corner that had been there for years and was popular at like 2 am. The Cecil Baker designed condos retained the original Western Union Building and built around that existing parcel. Full-time, 24-hour doorman, and the lobby is somewhat modern with access to the neighboring restaurant.

There are several floorplans at 1101 Locust St. and many units on the higher floors have a value that centers around the balconies/terraces (some are HUGE). The south-facing condos on the higher floors have great views and are known for an abundance of natural light. Many of the kitchens in the condo building are the same (style, color, and size) with a butterscotch colored tile backsplash. Bathrooms have ample size as do the walk-in closets. Again- Layout and overall size vary in many units (as does the view), so it may be difficult to compare "apples to apples" when trying to comp the value of the Western Union condominiums. Parking in the lower level is limited and always attended. Many parking spaces have "lifts," and the cars are stacked- so few folks can self-park. The condos do have a smallish gym on the 4th floor-which I have yet to see being used on my visits to 1101 Locust. I think most Philly condo buyers will agree that the location of the Western Union is strong- a very residential locale right in the heart of Washington Square West- and is adjacent to Jefferson Medical Hospital.
