Apartments Near Society Hill

One beautiful aspect of living in Philadelphia is the fingerprint of history that is all over the city. A short walk out of the front door of our Waterfront I apartments near Society Hill and you will find cobblestone under your feet and 18th- and 19th-century homes to your right and left. It is these charming details that make living in historical Philadelphia such a treasure. 

Living in an apartment near Society Hill puts you in one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the city. There is no mistaking that you are in Philadelphia when you are surrounded by this neighborhood that was originally established by William Penn and has more buildings surviving from the 18th and 19th centuries than any other location in the United States. Society Hill, which had gone into disrepair in the 1940s, found life again through a revitalization in the 1970s that beautifully maintained the neighborhood’s character. 

Not only is Society Hill charming and historic, but it has struck the most desirable balance of being a quiet neighborhood while still being close to all the conveniences that set city living apart. SEPTA’s public transportation system is a few blocks from our apartments near Society Hill. Likewise, bus stops and the PATCO line are easily accessible. Grocery stores are close by, including ACME and Whole Foods; both options are less than two blocks away in either direction. 

Living at our Waterfront I apartments, just two blocks from Society Hill, means that you also get to enjoy nearby green spaces like Three Bears Park, where children come to play and events take place from spring to fall. In addition, the seasonal farmers’ market, Head House Market in Head House Square, is not to be missed. The community gathers here to pick up fresh produce and other goods while taking the time to chat and catch-up. 

Life in the Waterfront I apartments truly could not be better. The maintained architectural details of our 18th-century building reflect the streets that run outside the windows of your new apartment home. Modern day amenities in the midst of history and stories of the past make it no wonder that Society Hill is such a desirable area to call home in Philadelphia. And—fun fact—the urban planner who designed the revitalization of the 1970s was none other than Kevin Bacon’s father, Edmund Bacon! That kind of hometown trivia isn’t found just anywhere.
