More often than not, living in the city feels far from Zen. Busy streets, crowded sidewalks… it’s tough to find a tranquil space to escape it all after a long day at the office. Luckily, there’s one section of the city where you can: The Waterfront.

Located just steps from downtown, major highways, and public transit, The Residences at Dockside is a remote spot on the Delaware waterfront that gives busy Philadelphians a (quiet) place to call home. Whether you’re a professional who needs a place to escape or a retiree who craves the serenity of resort-style living in the heart of a thriving city, Dockside is changing the way you think about waterfront living in Philadelphia.

Downsizing (or upsizing) is simple.

Whether you’re moving out of a house in the suburbs or looking to upgrade from a studio to something with a little more space, Dockside doesn’t just offer spacious views but the floor plans to match. Residents can choose from two- and three-bedroom condo-style homes in open and traditional floor plans.

The views can’t be beat.

Ready to take in a stellar view of the skyline, or look across the water? Every Dockside space is complete with a private terrace, perfect for enjoying sunsets from the comfort of your home.

Upscale homes are totally low-maintenance.

When you’re at Dockside on the water, you have a different set of standards. Dozens of residences make promises about their amenities, but these luxury condos match the stellar views with world-class amenities to make everyday life as easy-going as possible.

Every day is like a vacation day…

Wouldn’t it be nice to feel like every morning was PTO? Living right on Philly’s low-key waterfront gives you the happy illusion of a beachfront view, minus shore traffic to get there. Residents at The Residences at Dockside can wake up to views of the water, or opt for soaking in the skyline in a resort-like setting. 

… But getting to work is easy.

It’s no easy task to find a Philly neighborhood that’s quiet enough to take refuge at the end of a long day, but close enough you’re able to get to work in the blink of an eye. Waterfront homes are prime pieces of real estate if you need to go uptown or out of town for work. With easy access to I-95, I-76, New Jersey bridges and SEPTA routes near Old City, you’re never too far from your morning commute.

Weather is never an issue.

Go for a swim, rain or shine. With a heated indoor pool and a 4,100 square-foot terrace, The Residences at Dockside offers residents the perfect way to unwind by the water without ever having to check the forecast–winter or summer.

Leaving home is (literally) turn-key.

If you’re a constant traveler, or retiree always on an adventure, it can be tough to leave your home or apartment at a moment’s notice. The Residences at Dockside offers the perfect solution: Just lock up and head out. With concierge services and top security, your home, mail, and belongings are in safe hands while you’re away—and just as pristine when you get back.
