South Kensington (sometimes known as "Olde Kensington") is one of Philadelphia’s most diverse and intriguing neighborhoods. With origins dating back to the 1730s, this community's factories, workshops and industrial yards helped shaped the development of the City of Brotherly Love.
But just as Philadelphia has evolved, so too has South Kensington. The neighborhood is increasingly home to the businesses, creative spaces and smart residential design that have transformed the fabric of the city. Like Philadelphia at large, South Kensington bursts with an unmatched potential and a growing level of dynamism.
