Sora Pool Soars; it’s the Cherry on the Top of The Presidential Apts

Sora Pool Soars: Last Fall I headed to Presidential Apts to shoot the newly renovated buildings ready for tenants. The apartment complex, located on City Ave, and a stones throw from Fairmount Park, has undergone a $100 million dollar renovation and created an amazing resort to live at, so close to Center City (4 miles).

The developers of Presidential Apartments are The Post Brothers – Mike Pestronk and Matthew Pestronk , president and co-founder of Post Brothers Apartments.

They are the guys behind Center City’s Goldtex Building at 315 N 12th St . The one I dubbed a few years ago as the apartments with the best view of Center City, and that still holds true. Plus it has a really great rooftop deck with a wading pool and a spectacular gym. Now it’s near the proposed Rail Yard ie Philly’s Highline, which by the way will be having their one year anniversary party at Brick & Mortar, which is located on the ground floor of the Goldtex, on June 9th.

If living downtown is your top priority, but also living like your on vacation everyday, then move to the Presidential. (If you want to buy and live that way move to Waterfront Square)

At the time of my last visit, they only had the plans for the Sora Pool area posted. I think they lived up to the drawings, and more.
