The Franklin Residences reveals a complete transformation of its luxury apartments.
The historic, high-rise in Center City, Philadelphia – affectionately known as The Ben – boasts spacious one- and two-bedroom floor plans perfect for the discerning renter.
Newly upgraded apartments feature contemporary white quartz countertops, subway tile backsplash, soft-closing, shaker-style custom cabinetry, Whirlpool stainless steel appliances, vented microwave hoods, deep undermount kitchen sinks, gooseneck faucets with pulldown sprayers, custom paint, modern track lighting, resilient wood plank flooring, ceiling-to-floor subway tile showers, and sliding glass shower doors.
The Franklin Residences, located at 834 Chestnut Street in the city’s Washington Square West neighborhood, offers the best of Philadelphia, footsteps from its front door – premier hospitals and universities, sightseeing in the Historic District, dining in Midtown Village, green space in Washington Square, shopping between 8th and Market, and transit to fine art in Fairmount is all within 3 blocks.
The iconic address also features a state-of-the-art fitness center, comfortable business center, and dedicated, service team, as well as locations of Di Bruno Bros., Passero’s Coffee Roasters, Body+Beauty Lab, and a brand new Sandler’s on 9th.
In 2011, Korman Communities, a fourth-generation, family-owned-and-operated real estate company, also with a long history in Philadelphia, took ownership of the cherished landmark and restored the building – most significant, the dramatic lobby, which was designed by Horace Trumbauer, architect of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
