PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) November 05, 2018
On the heels of celebrating its recent topping off milestone at The Harper—Rittenhouse Square’s newest luxury, mixed-use development—Pearl Properties, the Center City based real estate investment and development firm, announced today that CookNSolo Restaurant Partners has signed-on to open the prominent restaurant space at the property’s residential entrance on 19th Street. CookNSolo is a powerhouse hospitality group in Philadelphia, co-founded by James Beard Award winning restaurateurs, Steve Cook and Michael Solomonov.
“Mike and I are so excited to bring our restaurant, open all day, to Rittenhouse Square,” said Steve Cook, co-owner of CookNSolo. “No developer has been more committed to strengthening the restaurant and retail fabric of Philadelphia than Pearl Properties and we couldn't be happier to partner with them again on another high-quality offering for our shared community.”
A new mixed-use project under construction, The Harper will consist of a 24-story, best in class luxury apartment tower, also featuring premier retail space, creative office, dog park, outdoor pool and deck, state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor basketball court, yoga studio, 10,000 sq. ft. elevated green roof/park with furniture, hammocks and grills, along with an underground garage.
