The transformed historic landmark that reinvigorated a neighborhood.

The transition of Locust on the Park from an abandoned publishing plant energized the redevelopment of the Schuylkill River banks and propelled the westward expansion of Center City. Previously home to the Lanston Monotype Company and then the National Publishing Company, Dranoff Properties re-wrote the standards of luxury loft-style living with the unprecedented introduction of Locust on the Park. The spectacular 152, highly amenitized authentic loft apartments enjoy an artful mix of original architectural appointments, modern materials and fine finishes.

The scenic Schuylkill River Park, from which Locust on the Park gets its name, is situated directly across the street from the property. The popular neighborhood park boasts a community garden, playground and spectacular views of the waterfront and University City, while the recently completed Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk offers a scenic path along the riverfront for walking or biking.
