A Closer Look //

The St. James is a mixed-use high-rise development in Center City, in the heart of downtown Philadelphia. The 45-story tower includes 307 high-tech, luxury apartment homes with a desirable Washington Square location and views. Situated on a one-acre site, The St. James development involved the rehabilitation and repositioning of a neighboring bank building as office and restaurant space, additional retail space is also available in the tower. Amenities include a 60-foot long, indoor pool and a fully-equipped fitness center. Apartments feature nine-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and private terraces. Every new home in The St. James also includes an advanced temperature control system allowing simultaneous heating and cooling, separate showers and tubs in every master bathroom, full-size washers and dryers, and GE Profile appliances.

The St. James is a great example of history meeting high-rise luxury. This winning property incorporated four existing eighteenth century buildings into a residential skyscraper that has changed its city’s skyline.
