Center City Philadelphia is in the midst of a cultural and development boom, one that is attracting many Main Line empty nesters. With its pedestrian-friendly streets, neighborhood eateries, countless museums and theaters, and abundant green spaces, Center City offers the perfect blend of city convenience and Main Line charm.
After years spent shoveling snow, mowing the lawn and everything else that comes with maintaining a home, these suburban expats are eager to trade their single family homes for the ease of a downtown lock-and-leave apartment. Renting offers the flexibility to experience Center City living without the long-term commitment of buying.
One of Center City’s most popular apartment residences is located in one of Philadelphia’s most distinctive neighborhoods. Locust on the Park, in the Fitler Square neighborhood, is ideal for renters looking for a mix of tranquil green spaces and a walkable city setting. Situated on the edge of the Schuylkill River, Locust on the Park is steps from Schuylkill Banks Park, the Fitler Square Community Garden, two dog parks and the Schuylkill River Trail, which was named the 2015 Best Urban Trail in America by USA Today.
Residents at Locust on the Park enjoy spacious floor plans, ranging from 800-1,400 square feet in studio, one-and two-bedroom layouts. The newly upgraded residences feature modern kitchens with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, new hardwood floors, 12-foot ceilings and oversized windows with views of Center City, University City and the Schuylkill River. The newly remodeled fitness center boasts new Life Fitness equipment, and the clubroom offers a full catering kitchen, available for private events.
For those residents who prefer a more downtown feel, 777 South Broad is ideally located on the Avenue of the Arts, in the heart of Center City’s cultural district. Theater lovers will enjoy being steps away from the Kimmel Center, Academy of Music and the Merriam Theatre.
777 South Broad’s modern and spacious one- and two-bedroom residences offer floor to ceiling windows with sweeping views of downtown, large kitchens with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors and condo-quality finishes. In addition, this LEED Silver certified green building also boasts a roof deck with hot tub, fitness center, clubroom with catering kitchen and private pub room, also available for private events.
777 South Broad and Locust on the Park both offer private, gated parking, complimentary storage units, 24-hour concierge and on-site maintenance and management. Plus, they are both dog and cat-friendly.
Both buildings are owned and managed by Dranoff Properties, which was named the number one Property Management Company in Philadelphia by VeryApt.com’s Renter’s Best in 2016.
