Where to Live

As Philly’s Loft District, Callowhill is known for the chic residences that have been created within the area’s larger-than-life, industrial bones. Thirty-one notable buildings built from the 1890s to the 1930s are included in the Callowhill Industrial Historic District on the west side of the neighborhood. Places like the Rebman Building let Philadelphians live in a city landmark fitted with modern comforts. Residents can access the subway at Spring Garden Station-BSL in the northwest corner of the neighborhood. Vine Street Expressway and Chinatown are just south of Callowhill.

Price Vibes

Stylishly renovated lofts in historic buildings are highly sought-after, and these spacious abodes will have high price tags and HOA fees. Updated townhomes and new constructions fetch even higher prices in the rare instances that they hit the market. One-bedroom condos in Callowhill are much more affordable.

Where to Eat

Callowhill is close to Center City’s eclectic dining scene and has a few local favorites within its borders as well. Cafe Lift is an adored brunch cafe on North 13th Street and Noble Street. Sazon serves Venezuelan dishes homestyle, while Parada Maimon makes hearty Dominican specialties. Just south of the neighborhood, a smorgasbord of Asian cuisine can be enjoyed in Chinatown.

What You'll See

The neighborhood’s industrial past is still very much a part of its present, but inspiring, art deco architecture and concrete behemoths are what make Callowhill special. Repurposed buildings offer panoramic views of the Philly skyline, but so does the Rail Park, an elevated greenway created on a former rail line. Home to artists, young professionals, and growing small businesses, Callowhill is reinventing itself with a creative energy that’s contagious.

Friday Night Fun

Callowhill is a fantastic place for a music fan to call home. Union Transfer brings in some of the hottest acts in indie, punk, and hip hop, while Electric Factory books well-known talent in electronic, heavy metal, and rap. The Underground Arts theater also hosts music as well as comedy, poetry, and theater, while The Trestle Inn throws retro dance parties with expert DJs. When you’re simply looking for great beer and tasty bar food, Prohibition Taproom is a popular hangout.

The Perfect Sunday

Enjoy the delicious breakfast tacos at Cafe Lift, then take a walk through the Rail Park and sit down on a bench to read good book in the sunshine. When you’re feeling adventurous, explore the markets in Chinatown or head further south to shop for a new outfit in the fashion district.

Transportation Options

With few nearby grocery stores and long stretches of industrial-use areas, Callowhill doesn’t have great walkability. Residents may need to get around by car to run everyday errands. The BSL subway runs along the neighborhood’s western border, accessed via stations on Spring Garden Street and Vine Street. SEPTA buses also carry passengers throughout the area.
