The 1616 Walnut Street Building or 1616 Building is a historic high-rise building in the Center City area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The 24-story building stands 94 meters tall.

In 1930, the architects received an award for the building's design at the 12th International Buildings Congress in Budapest.

Its five-story parking garage on the Chancellor Street side, part of the original construction, was considered a novelty in 1929.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983, and the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places on January 7, 1982.

In 2013, 1616 Walnut Street was renamed "Icon" as it underwent an extensive renovation, transforming it from commercial space to a luxury Class-A multifamily community expected to open in 2014.
