A new, full-block retail pavilion bustles with activity as neighbors enjoy a rich panoply of culinary choices, including upscale dining; a neighborhood gastropub; a classic coffee shop; a gourmet deli; and a European-style market at their doorstep. Located at Cira Centre South, our unfurnished apartments are set in the heart of Philadelphia’s innovation and business district, and are superbly situated near the University of Pennsylvania (including state-of-the-art hospital and medical research centers) and minutes from the lively campus of Drexel University.Tucked within both campuses are elegant vestiges of Philadelphia’s history: architectural landmarks (including buildings by Frank Furness and Louis Kahn) as well as Victorian homes and quaint, tree-lined streets. The neighborhood offers plenty to see and explore: parks and playgrounds, cafes and brewpubs, book and record shops, outdoor film screenings, farmer’s markets, and global cuisine with local flavor.AKA is also a short walk to Amtrak’s 30th Street Station—the mid-Atlantic area’s transit hub—and accessible to all 141 commuter towns in the Greater Philadelphia region.
