From the suave brilliance of world-renowned architect Winka Dubbledam comes American Lofts: The new residential centerpiece of Northern Liberties, the Philadelphia neighborhood named by Forbes magazine as one the 20 "hippest" in the country.
With its sleek facade and contemporary design, American Lofts is the achingly sophisticated definition of modern urban living.
Like art without a canvas, American Lofts is created by two interlocking "L's" that rest on a pillared base and float the building to the street and eleven stories in the sky.
No other building in Northern Liberties is or will be this tall, providing unsurpassed views of Center City Philadelphia and the Delaware River. As a result of the building's unique design, 85% of the units are "corner units," with multi-directional views from floor-to-ceiling windows. Two-thirds of the units also feature balconies.
The lobby is a paradigm of contemporary design that flows as the building does. Ride upstairs in one of the building's 2 state-of-the-art electric elevators, and step off into a pressurized hallway. (That means no cooking odors in the halls.)
The hotel-grade bathroom ventilation system is almost too good: It's completely silent, prompting the occasional visitor to ask if it's really functioning. Other amenities include granite countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchens, slate floors, and marble shower walls in the bathrooms, in-unit washers and dryers, and oversized closets. All 2 and 3 bedroom units have also been designed to maximize privacy.
All this in a vibrant neighborhood located less than five minutes from I-95 and Spring Garden. The equation is simple: American Lofts = Life optimized.
