In the middle of the Philadelphia’s Art Museum Area neighborhood, one of the most scenic mixes of green space and public buildings along the East Coast, is the three-building apartment community called Park Towne Place. The complex sports the clean lines, blond brick and sharp corners representative of its mid-century origin. Its amenity-laden campus of almost nine acres creates a park-like setting for residents. Park Towne Place puts its residents steps from the city’s major museums, from The Philadelphia Museum of Art, the glorious golden temple on the hill, to the imposing Franklin Institute on the south end with the Barnes Foundation and Rodin Museum in between. Alternately, step out your front door and in minutes, be on a bike trail that runs along the Schuylkill River through Fairmount Park. The area also provides easy access to I-76 and 30th Street Station for commuters. And because we are in Philadelphia, after all, expect a wide range of neighborhood restaurants and pubs to choose from, along with a Whole Foods across the street. Here’s more information on the community from Cary Simons, Kurfiss Sotheby’s International Realty listing agent for the penthouses at Park Towne Place.
