Apartment Description

257 Apartments is a landmark destination that offers a unique style of living. We offer the best of both worlds, a rich blend of traditional architecture with the latest contemporary features. 257 Apartments was erected in 1917 and was originally constructed as the grand Sprucemont Hotel. After a restoration in 2010, 257 Apartments has become an urban retreat, where classic meets contemporary. Pre-war opulence and modern style merge in apartments filled with such sought after architectural features as high ceilings and oversized windows. A meticulous attention to detail lends form to function, as each apartment boasts oak flooring, elegant baths, modern kitchens with granite countertops, European-styled cabinetry, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, individual climate control and cable-ready wiring for high speed Internet access.

257 Apartments is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the 19102 zip code. This apartment community was built in 1926 and has 17 stories with 60 units.
