Around Dockside: Passyunk Square

Biker on East Passyunk

Our waterfront location gives our residents easy access to major throughways to Philadelphia’s wonderful and diverse neighborhoods. This month, we’re featuring south Philly’s Passyunk Square.

East Passyunk is a short walk from the Tasker-Morris Station on the Broad Street Line or a short cab ride from downtown. This vibrant neighborhood is lined with indie boutiques, bars and cafes. It’s home to traditional red gravy Italian restaurants, world-famous cheesesteak spots and other highly acclaimed eateries. Visit for the unique blend of old-school charm and influx of dynamic new energy.

This walkable stretch of the city offers ample attractions. Visitors can pick up one-of-a-kind gifts at cute boutiques and independently owned shops, sip coffee or tea at local cafés or weigh in on the debate over Pat’s King of Steaks versus Geno’s Steaks — two cheesesteak places that have held opposite ends of the same corner for five decades. Weary walkers can sit a spell at the Singing Fountain, a happening park at Passyunk and Tasker Streets that plays hits of yesterday and today.

East Passyunk draws crowds for events year-round. Second Saturday finds local businesses offering discounts and events throughout the neighborhood. In the springtime, visitors come to sample creations from more than two dozen of the area’s eateries at the Flavors on the Avenue. There are also plenty of activities for kids and the whole family.

Our condos just down from Delaware Ave. off of Columbus Blvd. offer luxury modern amenities including indoor parking with security access, a 24-hour lobby attendant, indoor pool and hot tub, and a health and fitness center. After a long day of exploring Philly, you’ll love coming home to our luxury condos on Columbus Blvd with spectacular Philadelphia riverfront views. Contact us today for availability!
