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!
