Domus - Luxury Philadelphia Apartments

Philadelphia Real Estate: Named after the Latin word for "home," Domus offers eight stories of luxury urban living in the heart of University City, home to the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University. Residents enjoy all of the excitement and sophistication the city has to offer, while able to retreat to the serene surroundings of their homes.

Among other amenities, Domus residences boast 10-foot ceilings, plenty of oversized windows (with spectacular views of University City and Center City); Solar Shades for optimum privacy and UV protection; natural hardwood, slate, and travertine flooring; spa-like bathrooms with oversized soaking tubs; and open-plan gourmet kitchens with granite countertops and custom European-style cabinetry. Select residences can be customized with amenities such as island kitchens, studies, built-in bookcases, balconies, bay floor-to-ceiling windows, and granite computer desk niches.

All residents enjoy a private entrance to the only in-residence Starbucks in Philadelphia, along with luxury hotel-style amenities such as a dedicated concierge, an Event Planner, a fitness club with spinning studio, a heated pool with towel service, verdant courtyard, poolside fireplaces and grilling areas, billiards and multimedia game rooms, a wi-fi Internet and e-lounge with study/conference rooms and plasma screens, a screening room with surround sound and leather club seating and private dedicated parking.

Domus is also the home of Wave Forms, a stunning public artwork by internationally acclaimed artist Dennis Oppenheim, and the latest addition to Philadelphia's collection of public artworks. Wave Forms includes six 20-foot bell sculptures and many lineal patterned pathways which simulate "sound waves" that dance across the Domus courtyard floor. The exhibit is tactile, and both residents and visitors are welcome to walk in, around and through this unique artwork.

Domus is pet-friendly. One-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans are available.
