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!

Packer Park Perk #2: Golf, Fishing and Outdoor Activities!!

3One of Packer Park’s highly underrated attractions is its super close proximity to FDR Park in South Philadelphia.

When we sell homes in the area to out-of-town Buyers they are blown away by the underused green oasis within walking distance to our Neighborhood. It is definitely a huge selling point to be able to bike, jog, walk and golf nearby. In addition buyers love that the baseball/softball fields, kids playground, skateboard park, fishing, picnic & tennis areas, dog walking, nature walks and so much more are all within a couple of blocks of Packer Park!

Which other neighborhood in the city can boast that it is located two blocks away from a 348 Acre urban Oasis with a Golf course, about 125 acres of buildings, picnic areas, pathways for walking, landscaped architecture, and a variety of recreation areas placed within about 77 acres of natural lands including ponds and lagoons?

Bordered by the South Philadelphia Sports Complex on South Broad Street, Interstate highway-95/Philadelphia Naval Yard and Pattison Avenue/ Packer Park residential neighborhood. Many Philadelphians enjoy it as a green “Oasis” for a variety of recreational activities.

2The park was built to the design of Olmsted Brothers, the firm of Frederick Law Olmsted and John Charles Olmsted in the early 1900’s. The parkland was reclaimed mostly from marshlands of Greenwhich Island one of several islands in the area created by river channels present in the 1700 and 1800’s. The use of the park for the Sesquicentennial Exposition in 1926 and subsequent improvements have moderately changed the original design, keeping the main character of the park west of Broad Street. The original plan of the Olmsted Brothers still remains highly visible and significant west of Broad Street. The official name was changed from League Island Park to Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park in the late 1940s and a golf course was constructed. The park’s boathouse, gazebo and American Swedish Historical Museum are reminders of the 1926 Exposition. In 2000, the park was added to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places.
