Located in Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood is a magnificent, circa 1875 former industrial factory that was converted to 43 impeccable lofts. Completed in phases between 2006 and 2008, these units are sophisticated yet a bit rustic in design, maintaining much of their original character and adding some modern twists. Floor plans are either one- or two-bedrooms; some one-bedroom units have two full baths, some have one full and one half bath; most two-bedroom apartments have two baths, but not all — obviously, floor plans vary at the Hoopskirt Factory Lofts. Almost every unit has an open main living/dining area, a loft-style bedroom space the looks down on the living area, high ceilings and tall windows, and all have old hardwood floors and exposed brick interior walls. Kitchens and bathrooms lean toward modern, clean lines and neutral colors and finishes. Kitchens, at least when originally installed about 10 years ago, had granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
If being surrounded by charming streetscapes lined with historical buildings, art galleries, restaurants and some of our nation’s most important historical sites sounds appealing, the Hoopskirt Factory Lofts condos might be a perfect choice for your Philadelphia apartment. While this building does not have on-site parking, there are nearby parking garages and lots. The Hoopskirt Factory Lofts are convenient to I-95 and the Delaware River waterfront. Chinatown is walkable, as is Society Hill.
