The Academy House

ABOUT The Academy House

1420 Locust St.
Philadelphia, PA 19102

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.
