The View at Old City Offering 3 Months Free Rent Plus Other Perks for New Lessees

1 90

Philadelphia, PA — With Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signing an executive order allowing the resumption of home showings, appraisals, inspections and other real estate transactions yesterday, a luxury apartment building in the City of Brotherly Love’s Old City neighborhood with a plethora of state-of-the-art amenities has introduced an unprecedented move-in offer.

The View at Old City, one of Philly’s newest eco-friendly apartment residences, is trying to ease the financial strain of new tenants by offering a $99 move-in special that comes with three months of free rent. In addition, new residents will be treated to a special “surviving the quarantine” welcome package, which includes complimentary bottles of Revivalist Spirits’ Equinox Gin and Resurgent Bourbon, a $50 gift certificate to Karma Indian Restaurant, and a 750 ML bottle of hand sanitizer.

“It’s really an unprecedented move-in offer,” said Zackary Krapf, The View’s Community Manager. “The application and administrative fees normally total $300, and let’s be real, there’s no other centrally-located, exclusively pet friendly, amenity-loaded building offering three months of free rent in the city! And the gift basket is sure to come in handy, as the mandatory stay-at-home order is forcing most people to spend the majority of their time holed up in their apartments, either cooking or ordering out.”

The View at Old City contains 216 apartment homes with premium kitchens and in-unit washers & dryers, 140 access controlled parking spaces, and first-class amenities on the corner of 4th and Race Streets. Residences range in price from $1,589 to $3,974 per month for 441 to 1,254 square feet.

These elegantly modern apartment homes boast spectacular views of the city and the Ben Franklin Bridge. As Philly’s newest and exclusively pet friendly apartment building gets completed over the next several weeks, residents will enjoy amenities such as: a private gym equipped with two Peloton bikes; a yoga studio; theatre; game area; cyber café; zen garden; bike storage; an infinity pool; a package room with more than 150 lockers, many of which are refrigerated for perishable deliveries; a 2,000 square-foot-dog park, electric car charging stations; and concierge services.

The move-in special expires on June 30th or once the first 20 new leases are signed. The leasing office is open daily, and Krapf is conducting tours by appointment only, taking all necessary sanitary and social distancing precautions. To learn more, please visit
