Henry on the Park Apartments
Henry on the Park is a historically iconic 423-unit garden-apartment community in the RoxboroughManayunk section of Northwest Philadelphia, PA. Strategically situated on the western edge of Wissahickon Valley Park, this extremely wellmaintained circa-1970s asset is strategically positioned within one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the Greater Philadelphia Metro.
As part of Lower Northwest Philadelphia, Roxborough-Manayunk has undergone sweeping gentrification in recent years and now includes an enviable mix of working-class families and upwardly mobile/upper-middle-class young professionals. The latter tenant cohort in particular is drawn to this thriving area’s Victorian storefronts, former mills and nightlife that combine small-town charm with an indemand urban lifestyle.
A prominent residential landmark occupying 22 acres that span a former estate, Henry on the Park offers the most-spacious floorplans in the submarket as well as ease-of-connectivity to all the immediate-neighborhood and entire Philadelphia Metro region has to offer. As a result, this neighborhood pillar poses a rare value add investment opportunity for maximizing at-market value-add enhancements and optimizing Henry on the Park’s property-repositioning and rent-appreciation potential.
Eleven miles northwest of Philadelphia, Roxborough’s convenient locale provides residents easy accessibility to city attractions in a charming, yet modern neighborhood.
Prior to the 1854 Act of Consolidation, most of Roxborough was part of the Roxborough Township. The area was a thriving and successful textile mill, which helped fund many of the community’s schools and parks during that time.
Nestled between the Schuylkill River and Wissahickon Valley Park, there’s plenty of natural green space and settings to go around. Locals enjoy fishing for trout at the park, and going on evening walks at the Manayunk Canal in their free time. Many delicious and trendy restaurants encompass Ridge Avenue – but a popular, no-frills eatery is Dalessandro’s Steak, a cheesesteak shop by the Walnut Lane Golf Course.
Residents are comforted by their direct access to Interstate 76, SEPTA bus and rail services, and Thomas Jefferson University East Falls Campus.
