 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

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 Rivers 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.
