YIMBY Looks Back at Arthaus Rising Into the Philadelphia Skyline
The 542-foot-tall, 47-story, 108-unit Arthaus condominium at has recently completed construction at 311 South Broad Street on the Avenue of the Arts in Center City, becoming the most recent addition to the Philadelphia skyline. Replacing several prewar buildings and a parking lot, world renowned architects Kohn Pedersen Fox originally designed the tower in a different style and brand nearly a decade ago. With the revival and change of plans, the tower went from a hotel to a condo after Dranoff Properties acquired the property. The project, formerly known as the SLS International Hotel, dominates the skyline to the southeast of the main cluster of Center City skyscrapers.
