Are you one of those younger folks who loves hanging out at Johnny Brenda’s?

Have you been methodically eating your way up Frankford Avenue, from Joe’s Steaks to Suraya?

Perhaps the thought of being able to walk a few of those calories off on your way home appeals to you.

If it does, take a good look at these pictures.

You’re looking at a sibling of the last unsold condominium at Penn Treaty Residences, a brand-spanking-new 30-unit condominium right in the heart of the Frankford Avenue business strip.

The building sits on the site of the old Penn Treaty Metals recycling plant. An homage to its past sits across from the elevator in the lobby in the form of this realistic scale model of the facade, produced by local artist Drew Leshko, who has made a career of memorializing the everyday architecture of Fishtown and environs.

The site got recycled into handsome, well-equipped, simple yet stylish modern condos like this one. (And some of the wood from Penn Treaty Metals got recycled into accent walls in the building lobby.)

Its large windows let in lots of light and offer great views of your surroundings.

And if those views aren’t enough for you, you can go up to the building’s roof deck and take in the even better view from there.

And when you head back downstairs, you will be able to walk across the street to your gym — a one-year membership in City Fitness comes with the unit. Or you can head down the street for great coffee for La Colombe. Developer Trinity Realty Companies still hopes to land a café tenant for the ground-floor commercial space at the building’s point as well.

So your morning coffee and workout have been taken care of. The many restaurants and bars surrounding your building will take care of your nights out. And when you’ve had your fill, or on those evenings when you don’t feel like going out, you have this comfortable condo as your own retreat. The only thing you might want to use the several SEPTA transit lines that pass close by for is to get to and from work.

How’s that for convenience? And the price of this condo for sale is right too.
