Our most recent project, the Former Princeton Club of Philadelphia, which is individually listed on the elite National Register of Historic Places due to its Princeton Club history and connection to architect Frank Furness, is located in the fastest growing part of Center City at 1221-23 Locust Street. It has undergone a meticulous and costly restoration and renovation to its current use:  Premium offices only on floors 2, 3 and 4 and a first class restaurant with full kitchen below.  Floors 2 and 3 are accessible via elevator. The St. James Street entrance to this approximately 17,000 square foot building is a newly built elevator lobby made from the Princeton Club's circa 1930 original lower squash court. The building is handicapped accessible in nearly all of its offices (and most of the restaurant). The S. Camac Street entrance features historic staircases with complex balusters and leaded glass windows.  Floors 2,3 and 4 include 21 gorgeous, historic offices with many significant architectural futures, including heart pine floors, an enormous stained glass skylight ("lay light") designed by Frank Furness (Philadelphia's pre-eminent late 19th Century Victorian Gothic architect, whose other works include the U Penn library, Drexel Peck Center, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, etc.), Furness fireplace mantles, an exquisite Furness multi-story wooden staircase, unique Furness windows and doors, period-appropriate brass light fixtures (all new), among other features. All mechanical and telecommunications systems are state of the art and seamlessly integrated in this magnificent, historic restoration and renovation.
