YIMBY recently went on a hard hat tour of the highest currently accessible floor of Arthaus, a 47-story residential skyscraper on the verge of topping out at 311 South Broad Street in Washington Square West, Center City. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by Dranoff Properties, the 542-foot-tall building will yield 108 condominium units.

While the tour took place on the 35th, 36th, and 37th floors of the skyscraper, the tower’s structure is currently on the 42nd floor and has shifted to the final shape of the crown. The concrete work has been incredibly fast, with the superstructure ascending at a pace of one floor per week. The podium annex is also rising swiftly, with construction working its way up to the second floor, where the pool will be located.

The tour started with a walk around the outside, then to the sales gallery to see a sizable mock-up of a unit along with architectural models of the skyscraper. The interiors feature high-quality finishes with hardwood floors, white-painted wooden cabinets, wood-paneled fridges, and white marble counter tops. The miniature model reflects the final design of the building, with some updates since the last round of renderings that were produced at the unveiling.

The highest stop on the tour via the exterior elevator was the 37th floor, as the 38th story was busy with carpenters at work. The tower has a relatively small core, maximizing the available floor space and presenting residents with views in multiple directions. Residents on the upper floors will be treated to sweeping panoramic views of the city and the surrounding area, with clear sight lines of landmark skyscrapers like One and Two Liberty Place, the Comcast Center, the spire of the Comcast Technology Center, and City Hall. Residents facing the northeast will have views of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and Camden, and those facing south will have vistas over all of South Philadelphia down to the sports complex.
