Since 1784, Harrowgate has been one of the most culturally rich neighborhoods in Philadelphia. The neighborhood was pioneered by American Revolutionary George Esterly, who discovered that the area was a hotbed of clean, fresh spring water.
From there, Esterly established a lively, serene spa with beautiful spring gardens, overnight housing, concerts, food, coach transit, and more. Unfortunately, the spring was approximated to dry up sometime around 1800, but the future for the neighborhood has never been brighter. Now more than ever, Harrowgate is thriving as a diverse and promising community for luxury housing at affordable rates, with an 8% lower cost of living than Pennsylvania’s average, as well as the common national average.
Like many Philly neighborhoods before it, Harrowgate is the latest previously underappreciated gem to undergo revitalization, reform, and reinvestment. One of the most prominent examples of this can be found in our very own J-Street Lofts. Our owner George Manosis developed these properties to offer tenants, spacious, luxury city living at affordable, monthly $1400 rates. Alongside a 980-1400 square foot, multi-level living space, the complex offers tenants pet-friendly living (rules may vary), a secure, gated parking spot, a lobby, and fitness center, free of charge. In addition, the neighborhood has carried Esterly’s favorability of public transportation into the 21st century, being a mere convenient block from the Tioga El subway train station.
