Lippincott Building Condominiums,
Philadelphia, PA

Charming, convenient, contemporary

The Lippincott Building in Philadelphia was constructed in 1901 as a five-story iron, masonry and wood frame manufacturing facility containing 68,500 square feet of space. To increase the value of the building, two additional floors were added. The renovations and reuse of the building required a structural assessment, renovation and expansion for conversion into a condominium complex with basement parking. Columns were removed and transferred in the basement to create parking aisles. The two additional floors with a pitched roof added to the top of the building created a total of 109,000 square feet of floor area.
