500 Walnut

500 Walnut’s prized amenity is Westfalia’s 86-space automated parking system located in the building’s basement. Other amenities include a 50-foot lap pool, a spacious fitness center and spa, a billiard room, a 4,000 square foot open-air terrace overlooking Independence Hall, and a boardroom with a fully equipped catering kitchen. Scannapieco Development Corp. (SDC) is no stranger to automated parking systems and had installed one in its previous development at 1706 Rittenhouse Square. For 500 Walnut, SDC wanted its automated parking system vendor to be able to provide full support services, i.e. 24/7 remote support and be able to be on site within a very short timeframe should the need arise, and a solid track record in delivering automated parking systems. Westfalia worked closely with SDC and the project architect, Cecil Baker + Partners, to ensure the parking system efficiently integrated with the building structure and maintained the ultra-luxury aesthetics where the residents interacted with the parking system in the two transfer areas located on the first floor. Opened in early 2018, 500 Walnut was the first project in the U.S. to utilize Westfalia’s new palletless parking system that collects vehicles directly from the two basement levels of concrete floor, allowing a high throughput when compared with pallet-based parking systems.
