Turchi Properties: The Leader in Philadelphia Transformation
23: A Condominium
The former AAA parking garage, which was built in 1912, is located on South 23rd Street between Market and Chestnut streets. AAA used the building as a maintenance and storage facility for its fleet of roadside assistance vehicles and for document storage. This complete conversion was designed by locally based Cope Linder architects and completed in 2006. The 83 units surround a beautifully landscaped courtyard and are just blocks from Rittenhouse Square, 30th Street Station and University City.
Designed by architect LeRoy Rothschild and built in 1925 as a commercial building, 1700 Walnut is located on the corner of 17th and Walnut streets. The 12-story building was constructed with red brick masonry in the Beaux Arts style. The building also has elements of the Commercial Building style of a two-story painted limestone base, an upper shaft of regularly spaced 1-over-one double-hung sash with bracketed sills and capped with a cast stone and brick cornice. The interior floor plan has a central loaded corridor with residences on either side. In 1999, the building was converted to 64 apartment units from the 3rd floor up by Turchi Properties. Just one block east of Rittenhouse Square, it is located in the Center City West Historic District.
