We have a spectacular Philadelphia Short Sale opportunity at the Victory Building in Center City. We'd like to share it with you.


What makes this such a unique and stunning opportunity is not just the individual condo that we are selling but where it is located. It is located in a building that marks a period in history long forgotten. This Philadelphia condominium building holds it's head high amongst Philadelphia's younger generation of soaring glass high-rises.

                                      
Philadelphia Reale Estate Victory Building Center City
The Victory Building that houses our listing, a 1 bedroom 1 bath condo for sale (asking price $235,000), was designed by Henry Fernbach, the very same person who designed the New York Mutual Life Insurance Building in 1873.



Centrally located at 1001 Chestnust Street in Washington Square, the building is absolutely beautiful. The architecture style is called Second Empire which is is a French style of Victorian architecture known by its mansard roofs and had been quite popular in the United States from 1860 through the 1880's. The Victory building is even in the National Register of Historic Buildings.



If you are thinking of walking by this spectacular specimen, it is located at the intersection of 10th St & Chestnut right in the heart of Center City and steps away from Thomas Jefferson Hospital and Reading Terminal Market.
