SoPhilly Spotlight: River Livin’ edition

Sometimes, after a rough week, you just want to sit outside and contemplate. Might as well stare at something nice, right? Then this week’s opulent SoPhilly Spotlight fits that bill, if you can swing a price tag just shy of $1.1 million.

Like a cruise ship bound for nowhere, the Dockside Condominiums rise 16 stories above the Delaware River in Queen Village at 717 S. Columbus Blvd. Unit 1601 sits at the top of the building, and the patio is pretty spectacular:

    Looks very comfortable. Its a shame that on the outside it is the ugliest building in the world.

    Not to mention you will definitely take advantage of those parking spots since you will need to drive everywhere besides the ice rink and beer garden.

    Who in the world would pay that much to live in that eyesore of a building?
