Designed in 1917 as a grand hotel, the Touraine is Spruce Street's marquee property, and the most architecturally striking residential apartment building in Philadelphia, We have gone to every length to preserve its original beauty, while incorporating modern comforts. Since 2011, Spruce Street has lead a major capital reinvestment program that has drastically reduced the building's energy consumption, while redesigning the lobby and all common spaces to reflect our vintage meets modern aesthetic.
In 2014, Spruce Street Real Estate Co. fully restored and renovated two mid 19th-Century Brownstones into 21 unique apartments, upholding the strictest historical preservation and environmental standards. The rehabilitation also included a beautifully landscaped courtyard area, and a green roof. The Annex is signature Spruce Street — vintage meets modern in simple, classic style.
Spruce Street Commons recently added the Townhouse to its collection of classic historic properties. Located directly across the street from the Touraine, The Townhouse is a 5,000+ square foot historic residence built in the mid 19th century. Residents enjoy access to all the Touraine's amenities (the gym, the front desk concierge, package receiving, etc) while experiencing city living in a single family home with the scale and grandeur of an urban manor. Five bedrooms, nine fireplaces, timeless details like crown molding and stained glass—mixed with modern amenities like wine storage and a sauna—make the Townhouse a classic retreat.
Spruce Street is active in the Philadelphia market, seeking out development opportunities that will be both financially successful and completely in line with our company's value system of environmentalism, community development, and the promotion of high quality, classic design.
