PHILADELPHIA — Marquis Health Consulting Services has started work on the first phase of a $25 million renovation at Fountain View at Logan Square.
The high-rise community is located in Philadelphia’s Center City district. The 24-story Fountain View tower is a familiar fixture in the city’s skyline.
The three-year repositioning follows an ownership change and rebranding at Fountain View, formerly The Watermark. The building at 2 Franklin Town Boulevard spans 420,000 square feet and includes subterranean parking.
Designer Michael Lebovics of ML Group is spearheading the transformation of the physical spaces. The project kicked off with upgrades to the hallways, corridors and luxury apartment homes. This summer, the lobby will undergo a temporary refresh with a longer-range expansion planned. A refresh of the main dining room will incorporate a display kitchen for cooking events.
Beyond refreshed spaces, the planned renovations involve significant physical plant reconfigurations to create a range of distinctive spaces. New features will include an auditorium with space for live entertainment, a makers’ room, theater, piano bar and a sky lounge on the 24th floor.
Planned health and wellness enhancements include a juice bar and fitness center with a sauna. The additions of a pool, outdoor deck, and pickle ball courts are being explored, with approvals pending for some of the more complex changes to the building.
