Philadelphia's Changing Real Estate Market North of Fishtown

Jul. 23, 2019 / PRZen / PHILADELPHIA -- The landscape in Philadelphia continues to rapidly change; areas north of Fishtown including Kensington, Port Richmond and into Frankford are in high demand and increasingly enticing to both buyers and sellers.  These areas are perfect for those looking to plant roots for their family or invest in the business of their dreams.  The early bird gets the worm and delaying to act now will result in higher prices and shorter inventory.

There is a lot of excitement and buzz luring people to Port Richmond and Kensington. A night out on the town means indulging in diverse dishes, in particular, the ethnic cuisine the neighborhoods are famous for. A night out wouldn't be complete without discovering the thriving art and entertainment scenes in the area. These areas are bolstered by their convenient location near Fishtown, providing easy access to I-95, Center City and everything Philadelphia has to offer.

A shining example of prime real estate is 3211 Cedar Street which was previously a 50,000 square feet school and most recently a warehouse.  3211 Cedar Street was recently sold by REALTOR ® Mark Orehowsky of Coldwell Banker Hearthside, REALTORS ® for $2,200,000.

This generous sized building soon will feature bounteous space for both living and working. This space has 39 rental units (35 apartments/live-work spaces, 4 retail units) with accessible indoor and outdoor parking on-site.  The sensational views of Center City come to life on the rooftop terrace providing a 360-degree view of the city. Additional awe-inspiring features of the building include the balconies, atrium and walking distance to the train.

When this space was a warehouse, the previous creative owner had an ambitious vision for this space that the new owners are currently bringing to life. This vision is being brought into fruition with architect Ivano D'Angella to optimize the properties highest potential.

The new owners are enthusiastic to provide a positive impact on the neighborhood's quality of life. This repurposed space offers new businesses and job prospects for the area. One thing residents can look forward to coming in this space is a new favorite morning stop with the owners seeking a coffee shop tenant.

The reasons to make your move or set-up shop in Port Richmond and Kensington are endless. The blend of dining options, nightlife, small businesses, major retailers and ideal location make these areas an exciting place to live! The biggest draw is the pricing, which is more affordable than the surrounding areas while offering a tremendous amount of value.

Port Richmond and Kensington are already becoming a race to grab the best real estate available. The future is bright in these areas, the opportunity is there, and you just need to strike while the iron is hot!
