Vertical block party at Avenir
Last night I went to a vertical block party in the Avenir, our new building at 15th and Chestnut streets, Philadelphia. We designed the sleek apartments — ranging from “flats” (just 300 square feet) and studios to one- and two-bedroom (835 square feet) units — as well as amenities like a screening room, a community room and a state-of-the-art exercise facility. We also designed several “Think Rooms” for studying or for private zen moments.
The party was open to influencers and business leaders who enjoyed local bites and spirits. Avenir promotes itself as “micro living” at its best, but it didn’t feel claustrophobic. (Note: Micro living doesn’t mean micro rents.)
The location of Avenir is sweet, across from City Hall, near public transportation and a few blocks from the mega-chic shopping on Walnut Street as well as a stone’s throw from the Shops of Liberty Place, where it was just announced the new Bloomingdale’s Outlet will be opening.
