Set along Philadelphia’s Avenue of the Arts, Arthaus provides a new landmark for the city’s growing arts and cultural district.
Located on the southeast corner of Broad and Spruce Streets, the 47-story tower enriches the arts and cultural district with its distinctive design and active retail podium. The massing of Arthaus is modulated into four rectangular volumes. Each of these bundled rectangles rises to a different height, creating a distinctive tower top. The stepped, interlocking boxes also provide large outdoor terraces. Arthaus’ tower wall features a vertical expression balanced by horizontal terraces at each corner, which offer sweeping views of Philadelphia from the Delaware River to the Schuylkill River.
At the base of Arthaus, brick and terra cotta feature walls along Broad and Spruce Streets continue the scale of the street wall and relate to the material language of the neighborhood, while the tower’s high-performing glass façade is detailed with white aluminum mullions that add texture and variety.
Arthaus is comprised of 108 light-filled units and more than 36,000 square feet of world-class amenities, including a unique rooftop greenhouse and more than 4,200 square feet of ground floor retail space. The building’s outdoor spaces will feature a year-round rooftop greenhouse, individual planting beds, a reflecting pool, lawn, and sun deck. Additional amenities include a 75-foot indoor lap pool and state-of-the-art fitness center overlooking the Kimmel Center, a tranquil library, board room, club room, dining salon, café with demonstration kitchen and children’s playroom.
