171 Berks Street is a stunning, luxury, boutique apartment building located just blocks from the commercial buzz of Frankford Avenue. This enclave is the perfect place to call home. East Kensington, once dubbed "The Workshop of the World", was a hub for glass, machine works, pottery and textile factories. This former industrial district has been reinvented and now includes many green spaces and some of Philadelphia's most notable, independently-owned restaurants, bars, boutiques and galleries. 171 Berks Street is just a hop, skip and a jump from Norris Square and Palmer Park, Forin Cafe, Soup Kitchen Cafe, Buzz Cafe, Stateside Vodka Bar, Loco Pez, Pizza Brain, Martha, Evil Genius Brewing, LMNO, Suraya and Philly Style Bagels to name a few venues. Additionally, SEPTA's Berks Station is one block away providing a traffic-free 8 minute commute to Center City. Each one and two bedroom apartment at 171 Berks Street features an open floor plan, hardwood floors and knockout, sound-proof floor-to-ceiling windows in every room - many with skyline views. Each apartment offers central air/heat, luxurious soaking tub (in most units), washer/dryer, built-in microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal and breakfast bar. This unique building includes every amenity for your convenience - elevator, trash chute, bike storage, gym, and a roof deck featuring a dog park, yoga area, a covered and uncovered lounge, and jaw-dropping city views.
