vibrant Lancaster Ave. com- mercial corridor is walkable, drivable and bicycle friendly. A bridge, which crosses the Schuylkill River, leads directly to the Fairmount/Art Museum District. “The city’s colleges, univer- sities, employment centers, shopping, restaurants, bars and cultural venues are all within a few blocks’ radius of this highly sought-after dis- trict,” said Rosen. “As Phila- delphia’s overall rents con- tinue to inch upward – for total gains of 14.2% in the past year – investors are vigorously

competing for all on- and off- market multi-family proper- ties.” The Powelton Village portfo- lio sale comes on the heels of another recent University City trade arranged by Gebroe- Hammer involving 59 units. Rosen, along with Manag- ing Director Joseph Brecher, exclusively represented the seller and procured the buyer in the $11.37 million sale.
