Speaking of “historic landmarks for living”:

One of the first buildings Carl Dranoff’s first development firm produced was Locust Point, one of a slew of residential conversions that launched the transformation of Center City’s residential landscape. The condo conversion also started the slow reclamation project that turned the Schuylkill riverfront from an overgrown no-man’s-land into a popular riverside park filled with joggers, walkers, bicyclists and sunbathers.

With this recently upgraded loft condo in Locust Point, the Schuylkill Banks will be your front yard.

Interior, Unit 317

And when you’re not out sunbathing, jogging, walking or bicycling, you’ll enjoy a comfortable condo with an up-to-date kitchen and bathroom.


Its high ceiling makes it a true loft residence – your bedroom is located in a loft over the bathroom.


The large window at the living room end floods the unit with natural light. It also offers you a beautiful view of Schuylkill Banks and the river.

The building has some very nice amenities of its own, including a fitness center, common areas, secure package storage and your own private storage unit on the street floor.

View from the Walnut Street bridge. To Locust Point’s right are two later Dranoff projects: Locust on the Park, a conversion, and the new construction One Riverside.

But the nicest amenity — aside from the park — is the neighborhood itself. You’re just a short walk away from both Rittenhouse Square and University City, both of which offer great dining and shopping options as well as plenty of opportunities for those chance encounters that make city living interesting.





SALE PRICE: $365,000

OTHER STUFF: The monthly condo fee of $385 covers common area and building maintenance and staffing. The building’s amenities, systems and roof have all been recently upgraded too.
