About The Metropolitan in Center City

Our Center City apartments for rent offer studio, 1- and 2-bedroom apartment homes, standing tall in the center of our city’s historic skyline. Designed by French architect Louis Jallade in the 1920s, this twin-tower apartment building showcases 26 stories of Art Deco elegance and has a prominent history as the former Philadelphia YMCA Armed Forces Building. It was home to United States servicemen in its heyday during World War II, before being transformed into the current apartments in Center City Philadelphia it is today. Now, The Metropolitan has been recognized by the Pennsylvania Apartment Association East’s 2016 Achievement of Excellence Awards as a two-time winner of “Best in Apartment Living Awards.”
