About the Packard Motor Car Building in Center City


The Packard Motor Car Building offers Center City apartments for rent in a historic limestone and terracotta-trimmed building, featuring hand-carved cornices and oversized windows. Standing as an iconic landmark of Philadelphia’s historic automobile industry, these apartments, designed by Detroit architect Alfred Kahn in 1910, originally served as a showroom and assembly plant for Packard Motors and the newspaper office for the Philadelphia Record. The Packard Motor Car Building was then repurposed into the sleek Center City apartments they are today.
