Dressing rooms, standalone soaking tubs and saltwater pools aren’t perks typically associated with apartment living  — but it’s not fair to call the penthouses at Presidential City simply apartments, either. The luxe suites centrally located on City Avenue in Philadelphia don’t skimp on size or substance, with spacious layouts and unparalleled amenities that would impress both Center City residents and Main Liners.

The thoughtfully designed one-, two- and three-bedroom residences feature floor-to-ceiling windows throughout for both ample natural light and panoramic skyline views. Located on the top floors of the secluded Washington tower, the penthouses benefit from more than just the exclusive scenery.

Waterfall islands and modern cabinetry distinguish the chef-style kitchens, not to mention top-of-the-line appliances like expansive French-door refrigerators. Dual wall ovens and a five-burner cooktop can keep up with even the biggest gourmand, as well as not just one but two dishwashers. The open configuration includes a generous dining and living area perfect for hosting guests.

Just off the bedrooms, en suite bathrooms are outfitted with double vanities, mirrors with integrated lighting and rain-style showers with body jets. Standalone soaking tubs complete the private spa experience.

There’s more to take in outside of the towers, too. Residents get access to Sora Pool Club, a resort-style getaway with three saltwater pools, two hot tubs and outdoor kitchens. Chic cabana-style lounges, an outdoor salon and a fire pit lounge ring the private oasis. Indoors, an extensive fitness center complete with a co-ed steam room, saunas and group fitness studio brings free classes to residents, with private training also available. Active residents can additionally take advantage of the bocce courts, yoga lawn or basketball court outside.

Even with all of the extensive square footage and luxe amenities, Presidential City’s location remains convenient to downtown Philly. With direct access to I-76 and Route 1, commuters can reach Center City in 15 minutes by car or rideshare apps. There’s no need to venture very far, though. City Avenue itself hosts numerous grocery stores, shops and restaurants, not to mention many notable employers and institutions. Outdoor enthusiasts will also appreciate the easy access to nearby Fairmount Park, Wissahickon Valley Park and Schuylkill River Trail. With all of this right at your fingertips, the penthouse life at Presidential City lives up to its presidential reputation.
