EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE (267) 514-4112
The Keating Organization, led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Daniel J. Keating, III, revitalized the former Insurance Company of North America (INA) building, converting the stately Georgian Revival Tower into 267 luxury condominium residences overlooking Philadelphia’s beautiful Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
Philadelphia native Daniel J. Keating, III, had an affinity for the building situated grandly at 1600 Arch Street, and seized the opportunity to invest in a vibrant and emergent neighborhood. Keating believes that the future of Philadelphia is in the downtown core, in particular, the world-renowned Parkway Arts District of Logan Square. His goal—to raise condominium living to new heights by combining the convenience of location with a building of impeccable style, where discerning residents enjoy a distinctive lifestyle, and the simple pleasures of home. Keating maintains a residence at The Phoenix, and has made the building home to his corporate headquarters. His passion for the National Historic Landmark is reflected in his everyday management and oversight of the facility. “The building is not about a moment in time,” says Keating, “it’s about a lifetime of pride and memories.”
Keating selected Philadelphia firm Bower Lewis Thrower (BLTA) as the architect of record for The Phoenix. BLTA has extensive experience in adaptive reuse of historic properties, including the celebrated conversion of the PSFS Building into the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. BLTA’s design for The Phoenix embraced the Landmark’s long history, a design brought to fruition by gifted stonemasons and craftsmen. One cannot deny the artistic skill and aesthetic sophistication that resulted. Keating’s construction and development team bridged the historic charm of the building with modern elegance, transforming the Philadelphia Landmark into a residential condominium that cannot be rivaled.
The Keating Organization, through its affiliate, manages multiple class “A” luxury homes throughout the country. Keating is consistently ranked among the “Top U.S. Contractors and Construction Managers” by Engineering News Record Magazine, and is nationally recognized for superior residential, hospitality and construction project successes, including the Hilton Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing, the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Lincoln Financial Field, Hotel Sofitel, Tropicana Hotel and Casino and Bally’s Park Place “Wild Wild West” Casino. Few companies possess the reputation for excellence that Keating enjoys.
