The Ellington Condos is a 160 unit high rise condominium building located on the corner of 15th and Chestnut Streets. Pitcairn Properties purchased the building in 2004 and oversaw the condo conversion. The 7th floor is home to the building fitness center, as well as, a tastefully furnished clubroom that is available to all residents (can also be rented for private events). The penthouse units are bi-level, but the rest of the building features one and two bedroom flats. As owners come and go, the units are obviously subject to change, but when Pitcairn renovated the building they installed the following: Brazilian cherry hardwood floors; oversized energy efficient windows; granite countertops/breakfast bars; Poggenpohl cabinetry; stainless steel appliances; and marble tiled bathrooms with Kohler fixtures. The units also feature 10 foot high ceilings and in-unit washers and dryers. There is 24 hour front desk security in the lobby, and The Ellington is a short walk to Rittenhouse Square, the Avenue of the Arts, and Walnut St. shopping, among other things.
