Keystone Property Group launches leasing for residences at Lyndon at The Curtis
PHILADELPHIA, PA — Keystone Property Group announced that it has launched leasing for Lyndon at The Curtis, a new collection of 63 luxury apartment homes located in the heart of Philadelphia’s Washington Square neighborhood. Set on the western edge of Independence Mall at Sixth and Walnut streets, Lyndon at The Curtis comprises a mix of spacious studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes, including four bi-level penthouse units with outdoor terraces overlooking historic Center City Philadelphia. Keystone, one of the Philadelphia region’s premier developers, designed the community to appeal to the market’s most sophisticated and discerning renters, converting 90,000 s/f of former office space at its iconic mixed-use property, The Curtis, into a collection of upscale residences that set a new standard for luxury living in Philadelphia. “Lyndon at The Curtis represents an entirely new high watermark for luxury residences in the Philadelphia market,” said Bill Glazer, Keystone Property Group’s founder and CEO. “This development is specifically designed to meet the needs of those who make an active choice to rent, and are seeking the rare combination of spacious apartments and upscale amenities tailored to a cosmopolitan lifestyle.” Lyndon at The Curtis features a suite of lifestyle-oriented amenities that’s unparalleled in Philadelphia, including a fitness center with on-demand classes, dedicated yoga studio and spin area; private dining room with communal kitchen; clubroom and billiards table; dog spa; golf simulator; luxe library space; and an on-site valet parking garage. Residents are also served by a 24-hour concierge desk. Lyndon at The Curtis features an authentic early 20th-Century palette, elevated by high-style finishes, custom cabinetry, chef’s kitchens and expansive windows overlooking Washington Square Park and Independence National Historic Park. Homes include oiled wood flooring, porcelain backsplashes and bathroom tile, Caesarstone countertops, blackout window shades, front-loading washers and dryers, as well as built-in USB ports and in-unit alarm systems. A selection of the homes are also equipped with built-in wine refrigerators.“Keystone has done an incredible job creating a unique living experience that combines classic and contemporary while honoring the rich history of The Curtis. A true tribute to its neighborhood, from lifestyle to the aesthetic both inside and out, Lyndon at The Curtis is the epitome of what it means to live in Society Hill,” Scully Company president Jessica Scully said. “Because of the building’s original use as a publishing headquarters, the development team effectively had to custom-build a large portion of the residences. The results are one-of-a-kind residences unlike any apartment community in Philadelphia. From the custom home finishes to the intricate details there is an aura of grandeur that permeates the entire building.” In addition to high-style apartments, The Curtis offers a first-class shopping, dining and cultural experience. The building’s 50,000 s/f of retail space includes The Cooperage, an on-site wine bar, as well as the future Philadelphia home of famed New York City tavern PJ Clarke’s. The building also boasts a grand, 12-story atrium and “The Dream Garden” – one of the largest Tiffany mosaics in the world. Built between 1909 and 1920, The Curtis originally housed Curtis Publishing, owner of groundbreaking publications such as the Ladies' Home Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, The American Home, Holiday, Jack & Jill and Country Gentleman.
