In Fishtown, apartment in ‘urban garden community’ wants $450K

The place is located in the green building, Rag Flats

Risa Wittman

A Fishtown home with a ton of environmentally friendly elements just came on the market, asking $449,900.

The two-bed, two-bath place sits on East Berks Street in the Rag Flats project, a former factory that’s been turned into an energy-efficient apartment building. It boasts a community garden, a green roof, rooftop solar panels, a 6,000-gallon rainwater recycling system, and sustainable materials.

Inside the apartment, the style is reminiscent of many homes in and around Fishtown and Northern Liberies, which feature an industrial aesthetic. It has an open floor plan in the living room and kitchen, with a brick wall, and exposed beams and duct work. The

The building was once a factory, but was converted into apartments in 2006, by local architecture firm Onion Flats. HOA fees are $167 a month, and there’s parking to boot.

Realtors are holding an open house for the place this Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.
