The Irvine Apartments Open in Redeveloped West Philadelphia Warehouse

by Steve Lubetkin
Post Brothers has launched leasing at its newest project, The Irvine Apartments, in a century-old former warehousing facility at 780 South 52nd Street at the terminus of the Baltimore Avenue corridor.
The Irvine incorporates floor plans ranging from studios through three-bedroom units, complete with large living spaces, expansive windows and deluxe-sized closets.

“This isn’t one of your cookie-cutter, ground-up luxury high-rise buildings. The Irvine has history and roots in industrial Philly. Our mission was to honor its history and character while creating an elevated, yet practical living experience,” says Michael Pestronk, CEO and co-founder of Post Brothers. “We’re keeping in line with the ever-growing cultural renaissance of West Philly, where we’re seeing an influx of new residents who really care about health, sustainability, and the concept of community, so we wanted to create an experience that echoes those values.”
The Irvine’s interiors include roller shades for apartment windows and customizable mill work for closets, along with full-size stainless steel appliances, antimicrobial quartz countertops, and tile backsplash in the kitchen. Bathrooms feature matte black fixtures, artisanal tile surface, glass shower doors, rain-style shower heads and high-pressure body jets.

The property includes a variety of both indoor and outdoor amenities, including:

  • A fitness center equipped with top-of-the-line cardio and exercise equipment such as Peloton bikes, Precor treadmills, stair-masters, HIIT options, and a variety of selectorized, plate-loaded and free weight stations.
  • A community garden where residents can plant and grow their own flora and produce
  • Fully-equipped outdoor kitchen with grills, dining tables and lounge areas
  • A K9 turf lawn and pet park
  • A co-working space that features a large open area with ample seating, natural sunlight and custom artwork
  • Concierge services including dry cleaning, package storage and online services

“Times are changing, and the modern professional values access to an alternative workspace, ideally with a coffee shop component, and great WiFi that’s close to home,” Pestronk says. “The community garden at The Irvine is also a reflection of our renters’ gravitation toward locally sourced, healthier food access.”
Like all of Post Brothers’ properties, The Irvine incorporates environmental responsibility in its design, from wind power electricity and efficient fixtures to complimentary resident bike storage on the first floor and easy access to public transportation. The Irvine is just three blocks from bus and light rail stations along Baltimore Avenue and is a twenty-minute drive to downtown Philadelphia along I-76 or I-676.
