District: Old City
Floors: 15 Floors

Owner of Society Hill mansion wants to replace palatial 20-year-old home with 15-story hotel

Quote:
The owner of the Society Hill mansion across Walnut Street from the historic Merchants’ Exchange Building wants to replace his palatial 20-year-old home with a 15-story, 117-guest-room hotel tower.
Logistics mogul Anthony Cerone, who owns the property at 232-36 Walnut St., told members of the Philadelphia Historical Commission’s architecture committee Tuesday that the hotel project is what “the city needs” to help it recover from the economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.

The architecture committee, whose rulings serve as non-binding recommendations to the Historical Commission, voted not to endorse the proposal, with some panelists characterizing it as out-of-scale with the surrounding neighborhood.
Cerone, an owner of the XTL Inc. warehouse and trucking company, built his four-story, 5,400-square-foot home behind high brick walls on land he acquired for $1.1 million in 1999, property records show.

Regardless, I have a hard time believing a hotel will get financing anytime in the next 3 years, especially after the number of rooms that went on the market in 2019 and planned for 2020.

I too think this one is DOA unfortunately due to the Society Hill NIBMY Association... I mean... Neighbor association. I hope I’m wrong though and this one gets built. The design is incredible.

Interesting... was living in Old City when the mansion was built. Even though it looked like they pumped a lot of money into it, it isn't particularly beautiful or special.

Didn't expect it to be replaced however; the tower looks decent... hope it gets the go- ahead.

They will def fuss about it being hotel. But IDK, they might appreciate the stone aesthetic and overall respect to site context. Lol jk.

That mansion is ugly as Hell, I'm shocked they allowed that to be built and if they deny this new 15 story skyscraper to keep this ugly mansion they don't care about the neighborhood, they just care about noise and inconvenience
