Finding the perfect home in Philadelphia is easy with Reinhold’s long list of stellar properties, but only one of our communities is set in vibrant University City neighborhood. The stunning and historic Old Quaker Building dates back to the mid-19th century and consists of two main buildings that house 76 spacious apartments. With wide green lawns and a beautiful shaded porch, the Old Quaker is an oasis in an urban setting. Most of the property’s apartments feature stainless appliances, in-unit washer and dryer, designer cabinetry, granite countertops and wood flooring. The community offers on-site parking for an additional fee, a Luxer One package delivery system, a complimentary fitness center, and an on-site Enterprise car share.
Many of the apartments at the Old Quaker also feature incredible architectural details, such as exposed brick walls, timbered ceilings, oversized windows, and unique woodwork. Best of all, the property is located just minutes from both Penn and Drexel campuses and makes for an easy commute to either.
The convenient University City location puts you in the midst of all the exciting changes the neighborhood is experiencing. Within the last two years, many new restaurants and markets have opened in the immediate area, including Starbucks Coffee, the Ramen Bar, Old Nelson Food Company, Chipotle, and Dunkin’ Donuts. If staying home and cooking is more appealing, fresh and locally grown foods can be found at the Clark Park Farmer’s Market, the University Square Farmer’s Market, or the Drexel Tuesday Farmer’s Market.
There is always something to do in University City. This month, residents of the Old Quaker can stroll to the West Philly Artists Yard Sale at the Black Hound Clay Studio, participate in University City’s Dining Days, enjoy Shakespeare in Clark Park, or unwind at the Cedar Park free jazz series on Friday evenings.
If you’re looking for the perfect place to settle down in the City of Brotherly Love, the Old Quaker Building in University City will not disappoint!
