A historic gem, The Ayer Condominium was originally built in 1929 for NW Ayer, the nation’s first advertising agency.In the course of a two-year, $75 million renovation, the Art Deco building façade was preserved and restored to its original condition, highlighting gorgeous Egyptian-style sculptures, reliefs and pressed metal work, as well as The Ayer Condominium’s landmark bronze doors. Inside, renowned Philadelphia architect Wesley Wei, in collaboration with PZS Architects, carried out a vision in keeping with The Ayer Condominium’s storied history, yet tailored to meet the demands of today’s sophisticated buyer.
