Just Listed: Sunny Loft Condo in Logan Square
This factory-chic apartment gets loads of solar flair thanks to its southern exposure.
Are you a sunshine junkie?
If you are, today’s featured condo for sale should appeal to you mightily, for you will be able to get your daily fix in abundance.
That’s because it takes up a chunk of the south side of the loft condo building at 2200 Arch St. This building began its life in 1913 as the Philadelphia warehouse and showroom for The Larkin Co., a soapmaker that had expanded into one of the nation’s leading general merchandisers using a direct-sales model much like Avon uses today. A few years later, the Belber Co., a luggage manufacturer, turned it into its factory. Sometime in the 1950s, the Philadelphia Daily News made the building its home, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts briefly occupied space on its street floor. Orens Brothers acquired the building in 2004 and converted it into residences in 2009.
Located right next to the SEPTA Regional Rail viaduct connecting Suburban and 30th Street stations, 2200 Arch offers an ideal location, nice amenities and condo apartments with great views thanks to their large expanses of windows.
In the case of this unit, as noted above, those windows span its entire south side. This plus the absence of any other buildings between it and Market Street means that you will enjoy brilliant sunshine from dawn to dusk.
You will also enjoy your condo’s open main living space, which can be configured any way you like. The 12-foot-high ceilings combine with those windows to make this space feel extra spacious.
The west end, however, is ideally suited for dining, as the sleek modern kitchen and its island are located there. The kitchen got an upgrade recently with new appliances and turquoise glass subway tile backsplash.
Behind the kitchen lies the unit’s bedroom. It gets natural light that filters over a divider, which means that while the sun floods the other side, it won’t blast you awake in the morning.
Its bathroom has attractive tilework and a clawfoot tub.
Living here, you have access to a well-equipped fitness center, meeting and conference space, and a convenient deli on the street floor.
When you want more than that, Trader Joe’s is a mere block to the south. And when you want more than that, Whole Foods Market lies four blocks to the north. Plenty of good eats also surround you courtesy of a slew of restaurants in the area, and 30th Street Station is also a hop, skip and a jump away thanks to a recently completed pathway connecting this building to JFK Boulevard.
