Odd that their website still says nothing and I can't find any info on The Laurel or 1911 Walnut websites.

I'm hopeful, but have a feeling Equinox may not open... which would be a huge bummer.

That's good.
I have an acquaintance connected with Equinox, I will ask him and report back.



*** As an update. I can confirm that Equinox IS OPENING. Their target is late 2023!

The pictures don't do it justice but the entrance/podium of this building is really grand.

Yes - in person it gives a very luxe Restoration Hardware-vibe with the stone and black, and brass detailing. A very fitting for Rittenhouse Square.

I really hope they add that last piece of cladding midway up the building on the East side. The upside down L line that’s supposed to be there is broken up by that missing piece.

I just looked at Brian Emmons and Elevated Angles IG timelines and they have a really cool green skyline shot featuring The Laurel.

Did get a pic but have to say the 20th St facade is starting to look a lot better with the gold trim window casings.

The lighting on the crown is blue tonight. So far we've seen a colorful mix, then green, now blue. I can't wait to see it lit up red!

Idk if he's implying it exactly, but it sounds like the Penthouse might have been sold

He's mainly a realtor now.

Also, disgraced seems a bit harsh, are you referring to him getting roofied?
