Beautiful apartments above PARC headquarters now finished

The Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation has finished renovating the final two apartments above its headquarters at 1134 Titan St., adding to the three they’ve already redone. The two 2-bedrooms, which have private entrances on the other side of the building on Wharton Street, each have two bathrooms and open kitchens in nearly 1,400 square feet.

The entrances, and garage

At the expense of sounding like a vapid Realtor, the vaulted wood-beam ceilings are by far the most dramatic feature of the apartments, soaring to maybe 16-18 feet in certain points.

Say hi, Sam! Pardon the dust specs in the air. Cleaners had just swept up the last of the construction dust.

Other pluses include garage parking on the first floor, solar panels that keep your electric bill down in the summer, and electric car charging stations.

Incidentally, when PARC’s predecessor the Citizens Alliance was located in the building, it was mostly used for storage. They apparently needed somewhere to put all those extra trucks and vaccuums for Vince Fumo (not that the Friends of Dickinson Square Parkhas been doing much better, apparently).

Here’s the Craigslist listing for a few more details about the apartments. If you’re interested, act quick, because one has already been rented. The other is still available for $2,140 a month. If you think that’s high, well, learn from our mistake. Aug. 31’s SoPhilly Spotlight cast doubt on whether a 1-bedroom owned by PARC was too expensive.

Consider us humbled. The place was rented days later at the full price for $1,200. Clearly, Sam “The Man” Sherman is better at evaluating the market than we are.

Not a bad view. That’s Columbus Square past the trees, and the Archdiocese just put that building up for sale.
