I would suggest that the most significant addition would be Toll Brothers development of Naval Square. A variety of condos and townhouse styled condominiums, set on approximately 8 acres, this gated community offers parking, a tax abatement, and a lot of green, open space- a rarity here in Center City Philadelphia. The Graduate Hospital area, defined by the boundaries of Broad to 26th Street, South St. to Washington Avenue, has also seen a wide influx of low rise/brownstone condo developments. Many unique opportunities exist for condo buying in the area, as many developers have built from the ground-up, on what had been vacant parcels strewn out around the 19146 zip code. Most buyers will find that the Graduate Hospital area does offer a lot for the money, and the proximity to Penn, 30th Street Station, and Rittenhouse Square are all advantages that the neighborhood offers.
