Great amenities to be found at Philadelphia apartments

Philadelphia at night

Philadelphia at nightWhat makes a great Philadelphia apartment? Is it a good view, walkability to restaurants, top-notch building security? A fancy lobby, swimming pool, swanky fitness center? Maybe it’s great neighbors or just a good neighborhood?

We looked at the many listings for Philadelphia apartments found on RentCafe to come up with this list of things you might find in a Philadelphia apartment complex that will enhance your quality of life.

Remember, there’s more to a great apartment than just the price!

Perhaps you’d enjoy:

A swimming pool that looks less like something you’d find at an apartment complex, and more like something you’d find at a resort. Ave Malvern has this fantastic setup, as well as a 24-hour fitness facility with free weights and state of the art cardio equipment. It has views of Great Valley and even a café where you can grab a cup of coffee and a healthy breakfast in the morning. You’ll never want to leave your apartment complex!

A library where you can enjoy quiet time. Find it difficult to focus when you’re in your home apartment environment, or just like to get out of the house? The Heathergate at Oxford Valley, an active adult community, offers the unusual amenity of a library, where you can enjoy time spent reading, writing and reflecting. It’s open 24 hours.

How about a movie theatre.. at your apartment complex! The Ave Somerset has such a thing, with 24 seats. They also have a full time concierge service, high-tech business center, and yoga lessons by the pool. This property caters to upper-level executives, so you can be assured every need you have will be met with a smile if you live here.

Always wanted to live in an apartment with an elevator? It sure takes the hassle out of moving furniture up and down flights of stairs! I actually always wanted to live in a house with a staircase as a kid, so an elevator would be even more exciting. The residents at Berkshire Tower Apartments take the elevator up to great views of the city skyline and nearby mountain.
