The Aria condo, located at 1425 Locust Street is a high rise building just off the vibrant Avenue of the Arts, with its theaters, concert venues, and restaurants galore. Originally the Lewis Tower building, Aria’s first 10 floors feature 1, 2 and eve some 3 bedroom units. The tower portion which starts at floor 11 features no more than 2 residences per floor and at the upper levels above 28 they become penthouses.
Aria’s amenities include a private residents’ lounge, fitness center, boardroom with catering facilities, pet spa and 24/7 concierge service. Appliances are either GE Profile or in some cases upgraded to a Bosch package.
When Aria was first converted from office building to condo, sales initially were brisk; then the developer went bankrupt and 33 units were purchased out of sheriff sale and remarketed at a lower price point.
There are good deals to be had in this building at as low as $375 per square foot.
