“Wow Factor” Attracting Buyers to The Laurel

Unrivaled views a revelation for lovers of Rittenhouse Square

The Laurel is poised to become the tallest new residential tower in Philadelphia’s Center City. At 48 stories, each of the elegant new address’s expansive, wraparound corner residences provide breathtaking panoramic views, which buyers can preview in the project’s state-of-the-art sales gallery just a few steps from where construction of The Laurel is already under way.

“The wow factor when you’ll step through the door and see that view, it just blew us away,” says Chip Ottinger Jr., Founder & President of South State Inc., a family-run highway, paving and utility construction firm based out of Bridgeton, New Jersey about 50 minutes from their future home on historic Rittenhouse Square.

Right where you want to be

Chip and his wife Holly, who purchased a City View Estate Residence on the 42nd floor, found themselves spending more and more time in the city of Philadelphia, where two of their four sons are currently attending Drexel and Villanova universities.

“Every time we come to town, we head straight for Rittenhouse Square. It’s our favorite neighborhood in Philadelphia,” says Holly.  “It’s got all that history and so many great places to shop and eat within walking distance. We looked at several other projects, but knew this is where we wanted to be.”

“It checks all the boxes,” says Chip. “The location is second to none. We love the big open floorplans and the incredible views…the 26th floor amenity with the concierge, the gym, the pool, the clubrooms overlooking the city. That will all be very private and very special.”

“We love to entertain,” adds Holly. “I’m really looking forward to hosting friends and family in our new kitchen and great room overlooking the city. And having that clubroom with a catering kitchen and bar on the 26th floor means we can host larger parties right downstairs. It’s perfect.”

All of life’s best at your doorstep

Asked what aspect of The Laurel lifestyle they are most looking forward to, “Not having to start the car to go out!!” was the simultaneous response that drew an appreciative laugh from the couple.

“We’re ready for life to get more relaxing and more exciting at the same time,” says Holly. “The convenience of a luxury condominium lifestyle with the great walkability to shopping, dining, nightlife and the arts… It’s all here.”

“And this being the only new construction opportunity in the area made The Laurel the only choice for us,” concludes Chip. “We’ve had a great experience with the sales team, by the way. We feel very good about our decision.”

Now under construction and on schedule for a late 2021 delivery, The Laurel is offering a limited collection of new Sky Residences from the low $2 millions.
