Tony Luke Jr: The Man, The Legend, Our New Ambassador for Dockside

Over the years, we’ve had a lot of wonderful people take up residence here at Dockside, including more than a few local Philly celebrities, from sports stars to radio personalities… and even some of our city’s favorite cheesesteak kings. Now, we’re pleased to announce that one of Philadelphia’s most popular and beloved restauranteurs and personalities is working with us as a Dockside spokesperson and ambassador: none other than Tony Luke Jr.

Tony is a South Philly native known for the world-famous Tony Luke’s restaurants. He has been a Dockside resident for a number of years… and he’s already one of our most ardent public ambassadors for this place that he calls home and that he loves so much.

As part of our partnership with Tony Luke Jr, he’s launched a brand-new video show which he is recording right here at Dockside, from his very own terrace overlooking the Delaware River! The show is called “Phoodin’ Around” and in every episode, Tony and his pal, J Cohl, will report on a different restaurant or food spot from around the Philadelphia area.

Tony is super enthusiastic about our partnership, just as we are!

“I’m thrilled to be out there as a public face and voice for Dockside! Living here is absolutely amazing. I was hooked from the moment I got here! There was just something about this building. I looked at a few other places in the city, but I always came back to this building. A lot of condos say they’re on the water, but you’re really just along the water. Dockside is actually built over the water. Living here, you’re in the city, without feeling like you’re in the city. It’s like you’re on vacation every day, living in a luxurious hotel.”


Tony travels a lot, but no matter where he goes, he always loves returning home to Dockside.

“When I love something, I yell about it from the top of my lungs! This place has been unbelievably kind and generous to me. The staff is amazing and so accommodating. While the homes and the views are fantastic, in the end, the people are the reason I stay here. I’m always made to feel incredibly welcome. It’s like having a huge, extended family. There’s nothing like it in Philadelphia.”

Tony is a great friend and we love having him here at Dockside. And now, we’re thrilled to be partnering with him to get the word out to more and more people about what a great place Dockside is to live! In the days and weeks ahead, watch for Tony featured in our Dockside marketing and advertising. Tony will also be hosting some events live from our Dockside Club Room… so stay tuned for more about that.
