How much for a 544-square-foot home in Fitler Square?
Try to guess the asking price
Welcome back to Pricespotter, Curbedâ€™s guessing game! Today, weâ€™re looking at a tiny two-story home in Rittenhouse Square. Think you can guess the asking price? And remember: No cheating!
What/Where: A one-bedroom, one-bath home in Fitler Square
Square footage: 544 square feet
Itâ€™s easy to be charmed by the tiny homes on tiny side streets in Fitler Square. As is the case with this property, what it lacks in size it makes up in charm, character, and location.
The home is a cozy 544 square feet, with the one bedroom and bathroom taking up the entire second story. The first floor is dedicated to the kitchen, which looks out to the living room. The wall cut-out in the kitchen is a nice touch, making the whole space possibly feel a bit larger than reality.
And despite the homeâ€™s small footprint, it does offer a private back patio.
So, with the homeâ€™s square footage, location, and extra outdoor space in mind, can you guess the asking price? Take a tour, then take our poll!

Report: Where Philly is growing and where itâ€™s not
A new analysis highlights the progress in Phillyâ€™s 55 neighborhoods
A new in-depth analysis by Next City takes a deep dive into Phillyâ€™s 55 neighborhoods to find out where the city is progressing and where itâ€™s not.
It may not come as a surprise that Center City, Point Breeze, and parts of South Philly are making the greatest advances. Another 20 neighborhoods are doing just fine, falling in the â€œaverageâ€ category. But 19 other neighborhoods, including Wynnefield and Frankford, were identified as having to play catch up, either falling behind or facing the greatest challenges.
â€œOur goal was not to compare one neighborhood to another,â€ the report noted. â€œEach has different issues it is grappling with â€” a different geography, a differing population mix and different density. Thatâ€™s why, instead, we looked at how the city as a whole had performed during a five-year period in key categories and matched how close each neighborhood came to the those averages.â€
Those key categories included crime, median household income, population index, poverty index, and the home price index. The Next City team used 2009-2014 data from the U.S. Census Bureauâ€™s American Community Survey.
Using this data, the researchers weighed each neighborhoodâ€™s statistics to the cityâ€™s averages, shown below:
- Crime: -19 percent
- Median Household Income: -7 percent
- Median House Sales: +6 percent
- Population: +1 percent
- Poverty rate: +2.6 percent
Based on their calculations, Wynnefield in North Philly was identified as facing the greatest challenges out of all 55 neighborhoods. Thatâ€™s because between 2009 and 2014 it experienced decreases in population and median household income, as well as an increase in poverty.
As for the the area where Philly is making the greatest advances? Thatâ€™d be the neighborhoods along the Schuylkill and Southwest Center City. Here, crime decreased by 44.4 percent, household wealth increased by nearly 22 percent, and population is on the rise.

Inside King of Prussiaâ€™s $1 billion transformation
From mega-mall to mini-city
If King of Prussia builds it, will theyâ€”millennials, baby boomers, and commutersâ€”come?
Eric Goldstein likes to think so. The executive director of the King of Prussia Business District has spent the past six years spearheading efforts to turn King of Prussiaâ€™s reputation as a mega-mall to a place where people actually want to live.
â€œWhen I came to King of Prussia in 2011, what I saw was amazing,â€ said Goldstein. â€œKing of Prussia is a true edge city, which is a town that is outside of the regionâ€™s downtown, but has an economy thatâ€™s so large and stands on its ownâ€”thatâ€™s absolutely true of King of Prussia.â€
So far, Goldsteinâ€™s efforts seem to be working quite well. In the last few years, $1 billion has been invested into King of Prussia, which sits just 20 miles outside of Philly. Businesses have moved their headquarters here and developers have built up vacant land with mixed-use projects, and national retailers have set up shop in the areaâ€™s new town center.
But by all accounts, King of Prussia is only just getting started. Thousands square feet of development is currently under construction, with even more in the pipeline. Here are some of the most transformational projects changing King of Prussia, turning it into a shopping haven to a suburban live-work-play hub.
KOP Rail Line
Arguably the most highly-anticipated project for King of Prussia is also the most ambitious and long-time coming: The King of Prussia Rail Line. Spearheaded by SEPTA, this effort to connect King of Prussia with the Norris High Speed Line (NHSL) has been years in the making, and there are still plenty more years to go.
â€œIt has amazing potential,â€ says Goldstein, whose organization helped launch the KOP Rail Coalition. â€œAnd it was amazing to me that King of Prussia was able to get itself to where it is today without public transportation. That was shocking to me in 2011 and still is in 2017.â€
The project has been marked as high priority by SEPTA, and itâ€™s been pegged as the shot in the arm for King of Prussia, which for decades has been snarled in traffic and congestion, given its location sandwiched between four highways. The hope, says Goldstein, is that the KOP Rail will not only take more cars off the road, but also encourage more mixed-use development around the future transit hub and thereby convince commuters to stay put.
â€œThe people going between Philadelphia and University City, or even Main Line will have this option that will sure beat sitting on the Schuylkill,â€ says Goldstein.
If all goes to plan, the area could have an operational train by 2025.
251 Dekalb is one of the largest redevelopment residential projects in the region, spanning 26 acres in King of Prussia. With the help of Varenhorst Architects, developer Candlebrook Properties just finished a complete overhaul of the propertyâ€™s five modern residential buildings, transforming 641 units into a ultra-luxurious apartments with midcentury modern and minimalist finishes.
At the development, itâ€™s clear to see that 251 Delkab is drawing both young professionals and young families to its grounds (the free La Colombe coffee every day is just one of the community perks).
Josh Levy, managing director and head of acquisitions and development for Candlebrook Properties says the renovated apartments fill a gap in the rental market that King of Prussia had been sorely missing for years.
â€œWeâ€™re already seeing families come and live here,â€ he says. â€œThe anticipation is that [...] as millennials expand their families and leave urban environments, but donâ€™t necessarily want to become homeowners, this kind of environment is the environment for them.â€
The rental market expanding all over the area, with a number of other developments following in Dekalbâ€™s footsteps. Ave King of Prussia will bring 275 luxury apartments (some of them furnished for corporate use) in January 2018. Meanwhile, Park Square will bring an additional 320 high-end rentals to the King of Prussia business park.
Canvas Valley Forge
Drawing millennials to its town limits isnâ€™t King of Prussiaâ€™s only missionâ€”it also wants to help baby boomers stick around, too. At least, thatâ€™s the goal of Bozzuto Groupâ€™s new Canvas Valley Forge development, which is specifically catered to adults aged 55 and older who want to â€œsimplifyâ€ their lives.
Itâ€™s the first development of its kind for Bozzuto, which decided to embark on this type of project based on years of research studying this demographic. Although one Freddie Mac survey found that young baby boomers hope to stay in their current homes, 40 percent suspect they may move at least one more time before retirement.
Bozzutoâ€™s banking on that group to make their move to King of Prussia.
When the 232-unit apartment development opens in the fall, it will offer its older tenants a long list of resort-style amenities that were specifically chosen based on their demographic: Everything from an in-house salon to an inner courtyard with a pool to a game room equipped with Wii bowling.
The hope is that Canvas helps make the transition from homeowner to renter more accommodating and manageable for these young baby boomers, said Pete Sikora, The Bozzuto Groupâ€™s development manager.
KOP Town Center
But perhaps one of the most surprising transformations in the area has been that of the King of Prussia Town Center. The 260,000-square-foot town center, just steps from the numerous residential developments like Canvas, has given the area its first so-called Main Street and drawn national restaurants and retail to the area.
The KOP Town Center opened only last year in July 2016, but it is already 90 percent leased, including big names like Founding Farmers and Honeygrow. Just last week, CBRE announced seven new tenants that plan to open here.
Says Goldstein, â€œWhere the game used to be was at the King of Prussia Mall. Now, we have the KOP Town Center, which has really injected a whole new life of retail that wouldnâ€™t necessarily go into a mall.â€
Itâ€™s not just food and clothes that have turned the center into a popular spot for out-of-town businesses and residential. Though still home to 2,100 parking spaces, the town center offers the King of Prussia one of its first tastes of walkability, says Goldstein.
And along with the restaurants and retail, thereâ€™s a public space in the center, which has played host to plenty of programming like outdoor concerts and yoga classes.
Says Goldstein, â€œThe center has also infused energy and vibe into the town that never had a downtown.â€

Washington Square West surprises with modern interior, asks $925K
Plus: Thereâ€™s a backyard patio
A home in Washington Square West, steps from Louis Kahn Park and Seger Park, has hit the market for less than $1 million after undergoing a top-to-bottom renovation.
Located at the corner of 11th and Lombard, one might be surprised by the modern interiors found behind the brick facade of the rowhome. The 1,878-square-foot home was stripped to its brick walls and completely rehabbed in 2012. The current owners have made even more upgrades to the property since then, including installing a new roof just this year.
Today, itâ€™s a four-bedroom, two and a half bath home furbished with high-end finishes like ebony hardwood floors and a marble fireplace in the living room. On this same level is the large kitchen, which is lined with warm, custom-made cabinetry and a large window.
The home itself seems light and airy with its open floor plan and large windows in nearly every room, but it doesnâ€™t require much to get some actual fresh air: The living room opens up to a surprisingly spacious back patio, surrounded on three sides by a tall brick wall.
The asking price of this home at 424 S. 11th Street is $925,000.

Solar eclipse 2017: Photos from around Philly
Did you see it?
No amount of clouds could keep Philly from enjoying at least a partial solar eclipse earlier today. It was the first total eclipse of the sun visible in the United States in 99 years.
Crowds gathered around places like the Franklin Institute and simply in the streets all around Philly to watch the celestial event, which started around 1:21 p.m. Maximum coverage of 79.9 percent began at 2:44 p.m.
After months of waiting, the total solar eclipse lasted roughly two minutes. (Here are scenes from towns that were in the path of totality.)
So what did the highly-anticipated event look like in Philly? It looked like a crescent moon peeking through the clouds.
Here are some scenes from todayâ€™s rare solar eclipse, beginning with NB10â€™s live-time capture of the point of maximum coverage at 2:44 p.m.
The Franklin Institute was on its solar eclipse watch well in advance of the big event.
Mayor Jim Kenney got a good view from City Hall, too (best caption, ever?).
Some folks at the Wagner Institute got creative with their special viewing equipment.
The Navy Yard hosted just one of the many viewing parties that took place all around Philly.
Dilworth Park in front of City Hall was also a popular place for people to catch the celestial event.
