KPG is in the midst of a large-scale repositioning effort to transform the property into a dynamic, mixed-use environment. Targeted capital improvements and significant renovations are in store resulting in modern loft office space with classic architectural detail, collaborative and energetic working environments, along with abundant opportunities to shop, dine, and create. The building will also house 66 new apartments, developed by Roseland.
A variety of office suite sizes can accommodate single-tenant office and flex space to multi-tenant users. Onsite amenities are abundant and include child care, property management, a 300-space parking garage, health club, conference center, as well as high-end retail stores and restaurants. Adjacent to the beautiful Washington Square Park and Independence National Historic Park, the location provides permanent, unobstructed views and easy access to public transit all within a vibrant culturally dense neighborhood.
“The Curtis is truly one of Philadelphia’s most important and historical buildings, and we’re taking major steps to breathe new life into this unique space,” said Bill Glazer, President and CEO of Keystone Property Group. “We’ve already seen immense interest from companies throughout the region seeking a centrally located workspace that provides seamless access to the endless culture, shopping, and dining of the city.”
