From Victorian Estate to Rittenhouse Square Condominium
Rittenhouse Square is one of the five original Philadelphia squares designed by William Penn in the 17th century. The area first became a fashionable downtown Philly address in the mid 1800s and has never lost its panache. You'll still see a number of mansions built for Philadelphia's Victorian aristocracy facing the square but modern Rittenhouse Square is a vibrant mix of culture, commerce, history and urban sophistication.

Though you'll find some new developments, this part of Philadelphia is prime real estate with a great deal of infill and very little room for new construction.
