 Delaware River Bicycle Trail 

On July 31, 2019, the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC) held a meeting with Pier 3 and Pier 5 residents to clarify bicycle trail design elements that relate specifically to our locations. The final version of the plan was recently sent out to bid. Construction will begin in 2020 and be completed the following year. Members of our board continue to meet regularly with DRWC to discuss and monitor progress.

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

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.

  • 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.
