This 1 bedroom loft with private covered balcony is located at 1220 Buttonwood, which is sandwiched between 12th and 13th St. in the epicenter of all local spots. Check out the video below of the interior! We love the location and the look of exposed brick, original wood floors, exposed ductwork, concrete pillars, and original timber beams which are all trademark features for the Loft District.
In the last 6 months as of today, the Loft District has seen 4 Pending Condo Units and 6 Sold Condos. Of the sold units, the average price per square foot is about $225-$280 per square foot, which is an incredible value compared to other subdivisions in Philadelphia.
One article I read said that in the Meatpacking District of New York, price points for a 1 bedroom 1 bath condo are about $795,000 and a 3 bedroom luxury Penthouse is about $6.3 million dollars! Philadelphia is looking better and better when you take those numbers into account. Our 1220 Buttonwood 1 bedroom is listed for only 275K!
