AKA announces a new location - AKA University City at Cira Centre South, scheduled to open in autumn 2016.
AKA’s new University City location will feature 268 brand-new, ultra-luxury furnished hotel and apartment residences on the upper 18 floors of Cira Centre South's innovative vertical neighborhood.
Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects with interiors and amenities from Piero Lissoni, the 49th-floor of AKA University City at Cira Centre South will have a prominent place in the Philadelphia skyline - and the highest views of any residential building in the city.
Located along the Schuylkill River’s western shore, University City is Philadelphia’s innovation and business district. The lively campuses of Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania (including state-of-the-art hospital and medical research centers) are minutes away from AKA University City at Cira Centre South. Tucked within both campuses are elegant vestiges of Philadelphia’s history: architectural landmarks (including buildings by Frank Furness and Louis Kahn) as well as Victorian homes and quaint, tree-lined streets. The neighborhood offers plenty to see and explore: parks and playgrounds, cafes and brewpubs, book and record shops, outdoor film screenings, farmer’s markets, and global cuisine with local flavor. AKA is also a short walk to Amtrak’s 30th Street Station—the mid-Atlantic area’s transit hub—and accessible to all 141 commuter towns in the Greater Philadelphia region.
The entire 28th floor of the striking new glass tower is dedicated to our residents’ well-being and enjoyment. This unparalleled full-floor amenity level will include: an expansive lap pool; state of the art Technogym fitness center and yoga area; 3D golf simulator; outdoor terrace with fire pits; sophisticated a.lounge; business center facilities; and a private screening room. AKA residents will also enjoy a highly anticipated new addition to Philadelphia’s burgeoning culinary scene, an exciting retail pavilion, and Cira Green, a spectacular one-acre elevated urban park offering an array of cultural arts events and experiences.
