Overlooking Rittenhouse Square, the long-anticipated luxury high-rise “The Laurel” is now underway. Last week, a sneak preview of the 28th floor views was held for realtors and potential buyers. Developed by Southern Land Company, the $300 million tower at 1911 Walnut Street will have retail and lobbies to the first two stories. Through the 25th floor, there will be market-rate rental units, followed by a floor dedicated to amenities on the 26th—including a pool, fitness area, lounge, deck, sauna, and dog spa. The remaining stories will hold luxury, multi-million-dollar condos.
