Living in Philadelphia

Located in Philadelphia, in the heart of an exciting cluster of emerging neighborhoods, Oxford Mills offers easy access to mass transportation and major highways, plus immediate proximity to many of the city’s newest restaurants, bars, cafes and galleries.

A World Class City.

Philadelphia features a rich and diverse history, as well as a reputation for having a progressive and lively arts and cultural scene. When you live at Oxford Mills, you are uniquely located at the epicenter of both. Take a short walk, and you’ll find yourself smack in the middle of the galleries, restaurants, and music venues of Fishtown and Northern Liberties. Hop on the subway, and you’re minutes from historic Old City and the new Race Street Pier, Independence Mall, and iconic destinations such as the National Constitution Center and the Liberty Bell Center. In fact, all that Center City has to offer is right at your feet—including the Avenue of the Arts, Rittenhouse Square, and the fashionable shopping and restaurant corridors along Walnut and Chestnut Streets. Venture just a bit farther to tour some of the world’s finest museums—the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Rodin Museum, and the highly anticipated, newly opened Barnes Foundation are among the many.

A Hip Urban Center.

Within steps of your front door at Oxford Mills, you’ll find an eclectic mix of shops, cafés, restaurants and galleries. The Frankford Avenue Arts Corridor to the east, and The Piazza to the south offer plenty to keep you entertained. Be sure to hit Johnny Brenda’s for great live music or Frankford Hall for a hip take on the classic beer garden. A world of restaurants awaits you, too. Try Dimitri’s for Mediterranean inspired seafood, Bar Ferdinand for Spanish tapas, Dos Segundos for authentic Mexican, Modo Mio for classic Italian, and Tiffin for the region’s best Indian fair. You can also walk to any number of annual neighborhood outings, including the 2nd Street Festival, the Trenton Avenue Arts Festival, and ShadFest. Be sure to participate in the famous Philadelphia Live Arts and Fringe Festival, and prepare to be awed and amazed.
