Situated in the heart of Philadelphia’s historic district and overlooking Washington Square Park, Independence Place is surrounded by numerous cultural sites, fine restaurants, shops and entertainment venues, all within easy walking distance.
Designed by the Salkin Group and built in two phases, Independence Place was a joint venture between Cadillac Fairview Corporation of Toronto, Canada and The Greenwood Group of Philadelphia. Tower I was completed and ready for occupancy in 1981 and Tower II was completed and ready for occupancy in 1986. There are a total of 487 units, consisting of one bedroom to two-story penthouses, most with large terraces. Every unit has floor to ceiling windows and a view of the park, skyline, or one of the neighborhood’s historic buildings.
The Plaza, or entrance to Independence Place, is distinguished by intricate brickwork, seasonal landscaping and “Total Environment,” a freestanding sculptural artwork created by distinguished artist, Barbara Neijna.
At Independence Place we take pride in the services offered to residents, their families and guests. The Concierge team and doormen oversee resident-related matters including, but not limited to, guest arrivals, deliveries, contractors, taxicabs and package deliveries. An on-site management team responds to all residents’ requests and emergencies in a timely and professional manner.
Independence Place is pet friendly and we welcome those animals who meet our Buildings’ guidelines.
