Kensington Yards is inspired by its place in the fabric of Philadelphia.
In this space over a century ago, artisans came to find materials – in the stone and lumber yards that once occupied the site – that form the city we know today. That interplay of design and history, of character and heritage, shapes this new community and so much of the amazing, emerging neighborhood of Kensington.
Developer Alejandro Franqui of Solo Real Estate, along with the architects at Bright Common, landscape designers at Apiary and master builders Red Oak Construction, have created residences that reflect this balance in a way that is at once forward-thinking yet respectful of the past, urban yet intimate.
Kensington Yards' fourteen units offer rare double width spaces with over-height ceilings, abundant natural light and chef inspired kitchens featuring custom cabinetry with hand-crafted concrete and reclaimed wood counter-tops. The unique private and communal outdoor spaces give residents options for entertaining and relaxing. In addition, exceptional exterior insulation and sustainable materials push these homes to a remarkably high environmental standard.
This community's heritage and energy truly are the heart and inspiration of Kensington Yards. Once you live here, it will inspire you, too.
