Offering proof-positive that JustLuxe.com is indeed at the forefront of all luxury-lifestyle matters, this spectacular Philadelphia high-rise property, Two Liberty Place, was introduced to our readership in April 2007
. Here is an update.
The developers of Two Liberty Place announced that world-renowned restaurant Rae is moving into the 37th floor sometime in late 2009. Rae, which is owned by celebrity chef Daniel Stern, will literally be the highest-positioned restaurant of the region with an altitude of 500 feet. Patrons will enjoy an unobstructed view that spans more than 40 miles in all directions. The restaurant will share the 37th floor with TLP's 10,000-square-foot owner's club.
The impressive culinary accomplishments of exec Chef Stern have been cited in numerous publications, such as Bon Appetit, Esquire, Wine Spectator, and Food & Wine. Stern also is the exec chef of Gayle, another distinguished restaurant in Philadelphia.
"To me a fantastic dining experience is equal parts food, service and ambiance," said Stern. "I am incredibly excited to be able to offer my cuisine against a backdrop of 360 degree stunning views of the city of Brotherly Love."
Mr. Albo J. Antenucci, Jr., managing partner and executive VP of the Falcone Group, developers of Two Liberty Place, said, "Owners of the most majestic and highest residences in the city's history now have the most majestic and highest restaurant in the city's history at their beck and call."
The landmark 57-story tower is the tallest residential building of Philadelphia. Residents began moving in to Two Liberty Place in March 2008. Full occupancy is expected in 2009.
