A Fresh Look for a Historic Landmark
We are excited to announce that renovations will begin soon on our lobby! The much needed refresh will bring life back to the lobby through new carpeting, warm paint colors, Starbucks coffee station, inviting seating arrangements and more. We will also focus on the exterior with a new set of entry stairs and doors. Focusing on our Green Initiative, all paints we use will be low VOC, lighting will be redesigned with LED fixtures, and all of the doors and glass windows will be replaced with a new energy efficient system. We’re confident you will love the new look we have planned, and will happy to call the Rittenhouse Claridge your home for years to come.
Did You Know….
Lounge 201 was constructed using all Green Materials! Lounge 201 is lit with individually-controllable Lutron overhead LEDs. When each zone is unoccupied, or has enough natural sunlight, the lights dim or turn off. Our green roof features several types of drought-resistant sedum so watering is not needed. Rainwater alone is used to water the plants, which has the added benefit of reducing the rainwater load on the city sewer system. Low-flow plumbing fixtures significantly reduce the amount of water used with each turn of the tap, flush of the toilet, or minute under the shower. The fitness center features a 100% recycled rubber floor. The yoga floor is a bamboo floor. Bamboo grows much faster than traditional wood products and can be harvested without the need to replant because the root system is left intact. Finally, the dark flooring tiles used throughout are made from cork. The cork tiles are made from 90% post-industrial waste. As always, let us know if you have any questions about Lounge 201’s construction or our Greening practices.
