Still looking for a trendy place to live that doesn’t burn a hole right through your pocket?

Wait a few months, and you could be settled into a stylish South Kensington home.

PRDC Properties, a Center City-based real estate development and management company, is breaking ground this month on a new, 36-unit townhouse development at the intersection of Montgomery Avenue and Howard Street. “Regent Row” will be a contemporary row of upscale homes with multiple outdoor spaces as well as innovative interiors.

Project architect Atrium Design Group has a reputation for ultra-modern design, and these environmentally conscious homes are no exception. Each unit will have about 3,400 square feet of interior space, with three bedrooms and two and a half baths. The homes will all have one-car garages, finished basements, full-floor master suites, and high-end kitchens with custom high-gloss cabinetry and quartz countertops. 

Outdoor spaces consist of a second-floor deck, a balcony off the fourth-floor master suite, and a roof deck with clear views of the Center City skyline.

PRDC CEO David Perlman says that many homes in the neighborhoods adjacent to South Kensington have become too expensive for some. But, he continued, “The young millennial who’s been pushed out of Fishtown could afford a [Regent Row unit].” A limited number of the 16 units in the project’s first phase are being offered at pre-construction prices of $569,000.

PRDC claims these homes are well worth the purchase because they are so durable. They make extensive use of low-maintenance products like steel, glass, concrete and HardiePlank composite siding. “We carefully chose products that are designed to provide not only a great appearance, but long-lasting value,” says Perlman. “I think that’s what sets our product apart from the others.”

Regent Row will be constructed in two phases; work on phase one begins this month, with delivery of the first units scheduled for December.
