Historic
meets
euphoric.

With panoramic views of downtown and Fairmont Park, each apartment tower carries a unique feel of elegance and artistic curation. Setting a new age standard of intraurban living, Presidential City offers both a neighborhood atmosphere and sleek exclusivity from any vantage with the convenience of Philadelphia as your backyard.
