Dockside Residents Find Plenty to Do Indoors and Out During Winter Months
Philadelphia, PA, February 2016: For some people, winter is a time to stay indoors, bundled up to stay warm. That’s not the case for those who live at The Residences at Dockside, one of Philadelphia’s most popular waterfront condominium communities. At The Residences at Dockside, when the weather outside is frightful, there are plenty of delightful ways to stay active and have fun, whether that means stepping outside or never leaving the comfort of your building. That’s because Dockside offers some of the area’s finest, resort-like amenities, in a location that’s near some of Philadelphia’s favorite winter and year-round attractions.
Quietly set on the Delaware River, yet remarkably close to Center City, the Residences at Dockside is a 16-story luxury waterfront condominium that has earned a reputation as one of Philadelphia’s most unique residential experiences. At Dockside, residents are never at a loss for social or recreational opportunities. They can swim in the building’s heated indoor pool and relax in the refreshing hot tub, which are located in a bright, glass-enclosed area offering fantastic views of the river and the city. The on-site fitness center includes cardio and resistance equipment, so residents can warm up with a good workout.
The spacious Club Room at Dockside is ideal for entertaining and is frequently used for community parties and informal gatherings throughout the year. The Club Room features a full catering kitchen, a pool table, and a grand piano. The large-screen TV is ideal for football, basketball and other sports-viewing parties, or fun movie nights. And a 4,100-square-foot outdoor terrace is adjacent to the Club Room, overlooking the river and offering more of the spectacular views for which Dockside is renowned. Many residents also use the Club Room, which can accommodate up to 125 people, to host private parties and business meetings.
Indoor parking is another key amenity at Dockside – especially during the cold winter months. It can be tough finding a place to park in the city any time of year, but when you factor in the snow and the cold temperatures, it can be downright frustrating and unpleasant. Not so at The Residences at Dockside, where they have made easy, snow-free parking a priority. When residents leave home in the morning, they never have to dig their car out of the snow or get into an ice-cold car. And when they come home, it’s nice to know they can always return to an indoor garage, with security-gated access and three full levels of parking. Every Dockside resident gets one reserved parking space, with more space available to purchase, if needed, and visitors can park for free.
For even more convenience, Dockside has a private shuttle service to and from Center City, just for residents of the building. The shuttle runs Monday through Friday, with three scheduled loops in the morning and three in the afternoon/evening. The shuttle is especially appealing during the winter months, when residents may not want to venture out and battle the elements in their own vehicle.
Located in the center of the thriving Delaware River waterfront, Dockside is just a short walk from Penn’s Landing and close to lots of high-end shopping, restaurants and nightlife. For those who do enjoy being outdoors during the winter months, Dockside is close to the tremendously popular Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest, Philadelphia’s premiere outdoor ice skating rink and outdoor winter venue. RiverRink offers public skating sessions, season-long special events, parties, private functions, as well as skate rentals and sharpening. The Lodge is a real hot-spot during the winter, featuring two cozy, ski chalet-style heated tents with comfy couches, indoor fireplaces, rustic decorations, and a wraparound porch complete with rockers and heat lamps. The Lodge features a spectacular winter menu, a concession stand for faster, more casual dining options, and a coffee shop offering a variety of hot beverages, as well as a bar serving local craft beers and cocktails, and a variety of spiked hot drinks.
The Residences at Dockside also provides homeowners with easy access to popular attractions like the Race Street Pier, Sugarhouse Casino, Delaware River Trail, Seaport Museum, Adventure Aquarium and Susquehanna Bank Center. Residents can take a short walk over the South Street Bridge for more great shopping and dining in the city. And the community’s close proximity to major thoroughfares, including I-95, I-76 and 676, makes it easy for residents to travel anywhere throughout the tri-state area.
Then of course, there are the homes, which offer the perfect blend of comfort and luxury all year. At The Residences at Dockside, buyers can choose from a variety of floorplans that suit many different lifestyles. The elegant, spacious one, two, and three-bedroom condominiums feature expansive private terraces, designer kitchens with high-end appliances and granite countertops, in-unit washers and dryers, hardwood floors, and generous storage space. The condominiums can also be fully customized to meet buyers’ needs. Residents enjoy state-of-the-art security, and a 24-hour concierge. Prices start from the upper-$200,000s.
