Presenting the iconic landmark Daniel Building, one of Philadelphia's finest examples of a beautifully restored Art Deco facade situated in the heart of Old City, a neighborhood immersed in culture, fine dining and creativity. Built in 1927 as a garment factory, this 7-story building of buff brick and cast stone features a 3-bay storefront and wood doors with multi-light transoms. The recessed central entry makes a grand impression and the lobby boasts rough-cut Minnesota stone trimmed with polished Italian marble, designed by Kieran Timberlake and Harris. Take one of two elevators to the 5th floor and find unit 501, one of just two units per floor. This exceptional NY-style industrial loft, lovingly called, "Picasso Loft" by the current owners, dazzles with 2,100 SF of open, sun-drenched space. Polished concrete floors, soaring 14' ceilings and oversized industrial factory windows flood the loft with natural light. The entire unit is open and provides a blank slate in terms of design and layout. It currently functions with two bedrooms situated on either side of the loft. On the east-facing side of the unit, you'll find a handcrafted built-in double desk reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts era. A shared balcony offers sweeping views of famed historic 3rd St, the Ben Franklin Bridge and the top of Christ Church. The kitchen is a chef's dream and features imported Italian light fixtures, a striking 12 ft red Quartz island with plenty of room for food preparation and storage underneath, a Viking range and Kitchen Aid double ovens. The unit offers 2 full bathrooms: one outfitted in Italian marble tile and the other reminiscent of a spa in Mexico, boasting soothing sea-blue mosaic tile, a large open shower and a hot soaking tub. A built-in credenza in the dining area serves as a place to display pottery and glassware. Other features include an energy-conserving w/d, surround sound and central air. This unit provides unique live/work flexibility for the creative-seeking individual. Enjoy easy access to Penn's Landing and all of Philly's popular historic attractions. For shopping, you'll love the 3rd Street Corridor to enjoy art, design and fashion hosted by the region's most exciting independently owned shops. Old City is one of the city's most popular nightlife destinations with bars, fine restaurants and 3 Ritz movie theaters. This is an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy all of today's modern amenities while in the heart of the city's rich, historic backdrop.
