Over the last few years, the North Broad Street corridor has seen substantial growth and development with the opening of new apartment communities, retail spaces, small businesses, arts & cultures venues and health establishments.
Often considered the crown jewel of the North Broad renaissance, The Met Philadelphia underwent a $56 million renovation to transform the 1908 Philadelphia Metropolitan Opera House into the lively music and entertainment venue that it is today. Bringing lots of new foot traffic to the area, viewers can see a variety of performances by artists like Macklemore, Janelle Monae, Kesha, Patti LaBelle, Jerry Seinfeld, and Lady A.
For a more relaxed evening out, North Broad St also has great options for drinking and dining. Osteria, Santuccis, Cafe Lift, and Love City Brewing are just a few all fairly newcomers to the neighborhood. Love City Brewing, once an old rail parts factory, now offers a spacious tasting room with various visiting food trucks!
For many, the best shopping in Philly can still be found at the Reading Terminal Market. Voted the best public market in America, the Reading Terminal Market offers walking food tours, ice cream festivals, and almost every type of food and culture imaginable. Other nearby markets include Giant and Trader Joe’s.
And for those who just can’t get enough of the outdoors, there are multiple parks nearby with plenty of greenery. Nearby, the Rail Park is 3 miles of linear parkway with lots of space to walk, run, and jog without any of the Center City traffic!
It’s easy to see why North Broad Street is becoming one of the most popular areas in Center City Philadelphia. And residents of the Packard Motor Car Building are in the perfect location for all the North Broad corridor has to offer! This former automobile showroom of the Packard Motor Car offers spacious studio, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom apartments with modern finishes, soaring ceilings and oversized factory windows. On-site amenities include attached indoor parking, a sophisticated residential lounge with billiards, a resident library and conference room and 24/7 lobby attendant.
