And why not? Everyone wants to be in City Ave because it unites the suburban with the urban.
Here you can have it all, all in one place. The District is a unique mix of the urban, the suburban and the urbane. People flock to City Ave to work, live, play and learn. Though not necessarily in that order.
Three miles long, the District encompasses parts of Lower Merion Township in Montgomery County and the City of Philadelphia along the City Avenue corridor (Route 1). In this extremely desirable space we have an array of riches, including:
More than 130 shops and restaurants.
The second densest office market in the Philadelphia region.
Not one, but two major institutions of higher learning.
Six diverse, distinct neighborhoods covering two counties.
Many historical landmarks as well as parks, trails and recreational areas.
A safe, inclusive and vibrant community.
Easy access from anywhere to anywhere.
We could go on, but we won’t. To truly experience City Ave you have to be here.
