What I love about this home: Everything. This was my personal residence for 15 years and I made every improvement to owner's unit that I wanted. I Love the location and this block is blowing up with the new Royal Theater development (68 apartments & retail - opening in the spring) / New Jet Wine Garden. This neighbor has been on a tear for the last 20 years and it's only improving every year. Half a block to both Miles Table & Little spoon -neighborhood favorites. New retail coming to 16th & South Street. Huge and well funded master development plan (Retail/Parking/Luxury Multifamily) coming to 1500 Block of South Street (Former Site of Charter School - Corner of Broad & South St). Just a few blocks walk from Rittenhouse Square and 1.5 blocks to the Broad Street Orange Subway Line Station (6 stops to the stadiums).
