Where to rent in Philly right now

The newest apartment buildings are big on the amenities

View as Map

Philly has seen a ton of new construction in recent years, from new office towers to new condominiums. But a lot of the building boom has banked on Philly’s millennials, who have been renting longer and putting off homeownership. The result? A whole lot of new apartment buildings.

That’s led us to this: Curbed Philly’s rental heat map. Here, we’ve mapped some of the best apartment buildings—new or recently renovated—to rent right now. And we’re not talking rowhomes-turned-rentals. The buildings on this list feature 50 units or more and come packed with a long list of amenities.

We’ll keep updating this map as apartments come and go, so keep checking back for more!
