The Packard Motor Car Building apartments in Center City, Philadelphia are designed to fit a contemporary lifestyle and appeal to those who appreciate exquisite architectural details. This limestone- and terra cotta–trimmed building, featuring hand-carved cornices and oversized windows, is an iconic landmark of Philadelphia’s historic auto industry.
