Top 5 Sexiest Apartments in Philadelphia

Top 5 Sexiest Apartments in Philadelphia

In a city as historic as Philadelphia, we’ve grown accustomed to gorgeous architecture. We’re simply spoiled to be able to walk these charming streets day after day. Longtime residents will own up to the fact that they, at times, take the beautiful details of our city for granted; however, an influx of new construction and newly renovated apartment buildings breathe new life and a sexy, fresh energy into our city’s rental market.

Looking for an enviable downtown pad sure to impress? We did the hard part for you. Here are the Top 5 sexiest apartments leasing out right now in the City of Brotherly Love:

Goldtex

With its prime location near Broad & Vine and modern interior, Goldtex is a must for anyone craving lavish Philly apartment living in a highly desirable location. If you’re commuting outside the city by car, you can be on any major roadway in under 5 minutes. If you’re staying local, hop on the Regional Rail via Market East (just three blocks away!), grab groceries at the iconic Reading Terminal Market (two blocks away!), or simply stay in. This building is home to Brick & Mortar restaurant, a five-star fitness center, Elixr coffee bar, and a sleek roof deck pool with killer views of the city skyline.

Goldtex is also the first apartment building in Philadelphia to be awarded LEED Gold Certification. Resource efficient, this building uses less water, less energy, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. While you can get into a studio apartment in this luxe building starting around $1,500/month, the 3 bedroom/3.5 bathroom penthouse with 360-degree views of the city tops out at a cool $6k.

777 South Broad Street

Located along the iconic Avenue of the Arts, 777 South Broad gives residents access to the heart of Center City in Philadelphia’s dazzling theater district. Just steps away from the Lincoln Square–a massive development project currently under construction, residents of 777 South Broad can expect a Target, PetSmart, and yet-to-be-named grocer (but rumored to be a Sprouts Grocery store). With more than 100k square feet of planned commercial space, insiders bet there will be a Starbucks, a Bank of America, and, of course, plenty of local bars, cafes, and eateries.

As a bonus, the Dranoff Lifestyle membership card offers exclusive discounts to area restaurants and retailers. Membership benefits include perks like $5 off at the Wilma Theater, complimentary appetizers at the Capital Grille, and complimentary desserts at Del Frisco’s. And, did we mention the free membership to their on-site bike share, 24/7 Precor fitness center, game room, and their massive sundeck outfitted with a lavish hot tub?

Currently offering new tenants one-month free rent for a one-year lease and two months free for a 2-year lease, a 777 S. Broad Street apartment in this LEED Silver Certified building can be yours for around $2300/month.

Bridge On Race

Bridge is a thoughtfully-appointed rental building designed for modern living in Old City Philadelphia. The architecture bridges the charm of Old City with modern design and amenities, tying classic aesthetics with considered, contemporary architecture.

Rising above the adjacent Ben Franklin Bridge and overlooking the neighborhood streets, Bridge boasts exceptional views in every direction. Ranging from sleek studios to fabulous double exposure corner two-bedrooms, the apartments at Bridge share an elegant, inviting entrance lobby that’s staffed around the clock. Like every living space, every bedroom has expansive windows with cityscape or river views.

400 Walnut

“Equal parts historic charm and modern luxe,” The Broderick at 400 Walnut is a boutique property boasting green space to the north and east of this historic building. Located within the limits of prestigious Society Hill, The Broderick’s location is unmatched; in fact, the building is located just steps away from Washington Square, Independence Park, and the Liberty Bell Museum, to name a few.

In addition to its prime location, the residential units are clean, contemporary, and lack nothing in the realm of modern conveniences.  Other amenities include a complimentary coffee bar, an 11th-floor lounge with communal kitchen, billiards, flat screen televisions, outdoor terrace with sweeping views of Independence Hall, a modern, art-centric lobby, and state-of-the-art fitness center. With only 67 units, a coveted spot in this building starts at just under $1800/month.


The Sterling

Newly renovated, The Sterling’s sleek interiors are only outshined by its enviable Rittenhouse location and posh social deck. Equal parts rooftop swimming pool, conversation lounge, and outdoor fire pit, this apartment building attracts young professionals aching to live in the very heart of the city. The building’s cosmopolitan vibe continues through their 24/7 fitness center and tech lounge.

Just over a block from Suburban Square and less than half a mile from Rittenhouse Square, residents have the best of Philadelphia just outside their doorstep. With Square One Coffee, Misconduct Tavern, and the largest City Fitness  in the city (40k square feet to be exact!), The Sterling certainly isn’t lacking in options or accessibility; one of these stunning units–complete with granite counters, wood flooring, stainless steel appliances, and maple cabinets–can be yours in just under $1500/month.
