Delaware River Bicycle Trail 

The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation met with residents of Piers 3 and 5 on Thursday, June 14. The purpose of this meeting was to present changes to the plan for the bicycle trail in front of the Piers based on previous feedback. Owners and residents expressed their continuing concerns and offered suggestions for improvement.  DRWC provided a milestone schedule and stated that the Piers would be kept informed and involved throughout the process.

New Building Maintenance Supervisor

As previously advised, Jee Cruz, Jr. has been out on family leave.  Unfortunately, Jee was unable to return to the Pier, and we wish him all the best.  Mitchell Spies has been hired as the new Building Maintenance Supervisor.

 The Benjamin Franklin Bridge 
Benjamin Franklin Bridge

The Ben Franklin Bridge is illuminated in various colors throughout the year to celebrate holidays, commemorate special events and acknowledge the work of various organizations.  Here's some information about the bridge.

One of Philadelphia’s main attractions on New Year’s Eve and July 4th draws thousands of people to the Delaware River Waterfront each year delighting them in a breathtaking fireworks display. From our back deck residents can watch one of the most spectacular views in the city.

 The Tall Ships Challenge 

The Tall Ships Challenge at Penn's Landing is a sight to behold, and what better place than our own back deck, where we share in the pageantry of this annual event, which drifts in a three year cycle between the waters of the Great Lakes, the Pacific and the Atlantic coasts of North America. 

Residents can catch a glimpse, step aboard and even set sail on the ships, which dock at Penn’s Landing and the Camden Waterfront.

Living at Pier 3 allows residents to be part of the vibrant City, but apart from the hustle and bustle.  What sets Pier 3 apart from Center City condominiums?  Pier 3 is: 

  • A short walking distance to Old City and its famous restaurants.
  • A comfortable stroll to Festival Pier, Race Street Pier, and Sugarhouse Casino.
  • Adjacent to Penn's Landing and its full schedule of events.
  • The absolute best location to watch the fireworks on New Year's Eve and during Welcome America (4th of July) Week. 
  • Not designed as a high rise building, Pier 3 allows the residents to have an up-close view of River activities.
  • Residents enjoy the trees and plantings placed and maintained by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society in front of Pier 3.

See the Local Information Section for attractions and neighborhood information.
