The Metropolitan apartments in Center City, Philadelphia stand 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. Before being transformed into the Center City apartment building it is today, The Metropolitan was home to United States servicemen during World War II.
