CITY BLOCK LOCAL – What A Real Estate Agent Says About Logan Square

    PhillyMag just did a nice piece on the Logan Square neighborhood.  They included a section called “What A Real Estate Agent Says About Logan Square.” And guess which Realtor they spoke to? Here is what I had to say:

    “Logan Square has always been one of my favorite neighborhoods in Center City.  I went to school there (Friends Select), worked there prior to becoming a Realtor (an attorney in One Logan), and now I love to sell homes there. And many Philadelphians and tourists alike know the famous Swann Fountain, the Franklin Institute, Academy of Natural Sciences, the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, and the Free Library, all in and around Logan Circle.

    “The main residential portion of Logan Square roughly spans from 20th Street to the Schuylkill River, Arch to Vine, with some scattered blocks outside this range. It is a quite small residential neighborhood with very little commercial. Yet situated in the center of much of the best the city has to offer; a few blocks to Rittenhouse, the Parkway and its museums, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and the Schuylkill River Trail. And it is right off of Philly’s main office district, plus an easy walking neighborhood to 30th Street Station and University City.

    “Many of the blocks are quaint, tree-lined side streets with lovely townhomes, such as Van Pelt, Cherry, Appletree, and Summer. Then the main streets have larger townhomes as well as condos (both loft high-rise and the “stacked townhomes,” which are actually condos that typically offer upper and lower three-bedroom homes with garages). More recently, Logan Square has been the recipient of its share of brand new $2-million-plus high-end new construction townhomes, replete with two-car garages, elevators, and of course the 10-year tax abatement.

    “Because of its lovely neighborhood feel, central location and walkability (97 WalkScore, 100 TransitScore, 93 BikeScore), and its limited size (and thus limited available housing stock), Logan Square is ever popular and is in high demand.”
