Philadelphia archbishop's home
September 24, 2012
St. Joseph’s University will buy the archbishop of Philadelphia’s residence for $10 million, the university announced Sept. 7.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia signed a letter of intent with St. Joseph’s to acquire the 8.9-acre property and its three-storey, 23,350-square-foot mansion that has been the home of Philadelphia’s Catholic archbishops since 1935.
The property sits across the street from the university’s campus.
St. Joseph’s president, Jesuit Father Kevin Gillespie said the university has no immediate plans for development on the property.
Archbishop Charles Chaput will now live at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, located eight km south.
