Facts

  • The former Ritz-Carlton Hotel was purchased by the University of the Arts in 1998 and converted to office space, street-level retail, and houses theaters, dance studios, photography rooms, classrooms, and faculty offices.
  • The hotel opened in 1912 and was so successful the owners had the building doubled in width along Walnut Street. The addition was completed in 1914.
  • The ornate portion of the lower facade, which was stripped off in the 1950s, was replicated and reapplied by University of the Arts in 2001.
  • This was the first building in Philadelphia to carry the Ritz-Carlton name. The hotel eventually closed, but the The Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia, a few blocks to the north on the opposite side of Broad Street, was recently converted into the current Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia.
