Residences designed to make the everyday extraordinary.

 

Founded by William Penn in 1682, it's the birthplace of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Located between the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers, Philadelphia is the fifth most populated city in the United States. With that size and stature comes copious amounts of real estate, art and culture (not to mention the food too). Philadelphia real estate ranges from luxury residences in a wide variety of styles to traditional 18th-century architecture.

 

 

More than just a housing complex.

 

Philadelphia is more than just a housing complex – it's a bunch of neighborhoods, and any good neighborhood comes with amenities for the locals. Here are some that stand out and make Philadelphia truly unique.

 

 

Coffeeshops

FUEL FOR THE CITY

Sure you can find a Starbucks on almost every corner, but Philadelphia java is so much more than that. You have some great shops such as One Shot, Elixr, Ultimo, Joe, Garces Trading Co, Old City, Mugshots, and Rocket Cat. There's no shortage of caffeine in Philadelphia, but people do play favorites with the shops they get their beans from.

Urban Oasis

Cooler than concrete

Philadelphia has a variety of options to cool down during the hot summer heat. You could go with a friend that made it past the wait list at the Lombard Swim Club, venture to a public pool, or you could sip cocktails and listen to your favorite tunes at North Shore Beach Club. If all else fails, befriend someone with a rooftop pool. Not sure which buildings have them? Inquire here for more info.

 

Coworking Spaces

Synergy for small business 

Small businesses can often be crushed by large overhead spent on rent. Philadelphia has an abundance of coworking spaces that vary for different needs. They are an excellent place to focus on your work while networking. Pipeline is one that stands out from the crowd as it provides a great mix of enterprise, tech and design. It is where Copper Hill Real Estate is located.
