Something New In Store

When you activate a residential and commercial building with high-end opportunities to shop and dine, you create a reason for people to meet, linger and explore. And when that building is a historic landmark sitting on the most picturesque corner of the city,

it becomes a destination that people won’t forget. Combined with revitalized Beaux-Arts architecture that evokes the hidden passageways of Paris, you have a space that can inspire an entire neighborhood to come to life.

City Limitless

The once open-air atrium at The Curtis has come a long way since its days as a loading dock and service yard. Now enclosed, the impressive 12-story hub has been reimagined to tap into the urban momentum outside. The outdoor parklets and widened passages draw in active pedestrian traffic, while the center-facing storefronts look in on cast iron

armatures and Corinthian columns that hint at the elegance of the building’s past. Whether you’re people-watching from the 2nd story observation deck or getting happy hour drinks at the restaurant below, the atrium attracts residents, office workers and tourists to enjoy Philadelphia from the centerof it all.
