The Academy House is very centrally located as it’s an easy walk to Rittenhouse, Avenue of the Arts, and even Washington Square. The 37-story building houses over 570 units made up of junior-one, one, two, and three bedroom units. Many of the condos do have balconies that offer really great views. The building is cat friendly, has a gym, a pool, 24-hour doorman, and on-site parking. At first glance, condo fees appear to be high, but keep in mind they do cover the majority of your utilities. The Academy House isn’t ultra-luxurious, but it is moderately priced and works with a lot of people’s budgets. Due to its location and price point, units usually aren’t a very difficult resale. There is a variety of floor plans, and due to the building’s age, unit conditions vary from completely renovated to in need of a complete renovation.
