One of the largest properties on the National Register of Historic Places ever converted to residential use.

The University of Pennsylvania collaborated with Dranoff Properties to carry out the dramatic conversion of The Left Bank. Originally built in 1929 as the Pennsylvania Railroad Depot, The Left Bank is one of the largest properties on the National Register of Historic Places ever converted to residential use. Unique in design and execution, the community is located within easy walking distance to leading educational, healthcare and high tech employers. The Left Bank has proven to be a powerful magnet for the adjoining campuses of the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University to attract top students and quality faculty.
