Packer Park and The Philadelphia Navy Yard: A Match Made in Heaven!

When people think of the Philadelphia business world, they automatically think of the busy streets and skyscrapers of Center City. What people don’t know is that many Philadelphia businesses choose to do their hustling and bustling in the quiet and scenic, Philadelphia Navy Yard. Just outside of Packer Park, this steadily developing business campus hosts 143 businesses and over 11,000 employees. The location is perfect, the atmosphere is serene and the area offers every convenience and amenity imaginable. Now, I love all areas of Philadelphia equally but after spending the majority of my time working in the a fast-paced, Center City environment, the peaceful, waterfront of the Navy Yard looks very appealing.

Well, as you can imagine, all of these new opportunities at the Navy Yard are keeping South Philly Realtors busier than ever! The boom at the Navy Yard has caused a high demand for nearby Packer Park homes. The two areas complement each other perfectly as the navy Yard provides new resources, sports complexes and a beautified waterfront to Packer Park residents while Packer Park provides a gorgeous, family friendly place for Navy Yard employees to live. We are seeing a steady increase in highly motivated buyers thanks to all of these new employees and the future of Packer Park is looking very bright!

Packer Park is Trending UP!

pic1Driving through Packer Park this morning I couldn’t help but notice yet another third story addition being added!!

This particular one was located at 3137 Croatan Place but is really only one of many we have spotted all over the neighborhood!

In addition to all of the additions being added, it seems that more and more three story homes are being built in general in the area. We also spotted a few others on Forrestal just the other day!

It is clear that Packer Park is a neighborhood filled with families that want to stay. Unlike so many of the other Center City and surrounding neighborhoods, Packer Park is filled with families that would rather stay in the home they love, in the area they know, and expand the size of the current home to fit their growing families! Most Center City neighborhoods are filled with mostly young professionals and very few children, Packer Park is mostly made up of large families with many children!

Packer Park has seen a lot of new activity this year, from the New Construction at Geary Estates (10 New Construction homes with finished basements, which sold out in record time due to the high demand) to these new additions being added all over!! Rumor has it that another exciting project is heading to the neighborhood and bringing with it 20 to 30 new construction homes by the end of 2015! Stay tuned for more info on that!
