Naval Square- 19146

Naval Square, located at 24th & Bainbridge Streets, opened its doors in 1834, and was the first home of the U.S. Naval Academy as well as the country’s first retirement home for sailors and marines. The name changed to Naval Square in 1889.

In 1971, Naval Square was added onto the National Register of Historic Places and designated a National Historic Landmark. After the Naval Home was relocated to Gulfport, Mississippi in 1976, the facility was closed BUT not for long! Less than a decade later, Toll Brothers purchased the property situated in a spectacular 20-acre private gated community. The parade grounds lined with century old trees and classic Greek Revival architecture remains and has been carefully integrated with modern luxurious condominiums and multi-level townhomes offering state-of-the-art world class amenities, community center with entertainment area & pool table, outdoor pool & sundeck, state-of-the-art Fitness Center, walking trails and on-site Concierge.

Schuylkill River Park is only a few blocks away and is home to public tennis courts, dog runs, basketball court, athletic field and Schuylkill Banks Trail, a great walking/running/bike path that leads you to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Fairmount Park, Boat House Row, Manayunk and points beyond. Just minutes from Fitler/Rittenhouse Square, University City, HUP, CHOP, 30th Street Station, and major highways. Close to restaurants, entertainment and shopping.
