The Royal Athena vs. 1919 Market

At The Royal Athena, we’re about making it about you.

Why Choose Us

There are plenty of luxury apartments in the Philadelphia area, but there’s one that stands above the rest: The Royal Athena. When compared to 1919 Market, our apartments boast natural surroundings, affordability, a friendly community, and more to make your home an ideal place to live.

Natural Surroundings

While The Royal Athena is located near several great neighborhoods with plenty to do, it’s also in a perfect location for nature lovers. Our luxury apartments are situated right on the beautiful Schuylkill River and are within walking distance of Fairmount Park – a 14 square-mile green space with plenty of hiking trails, athletic fields, and areas for outdoor concerts. In addition, you’ll find several other small parks and beautiful golf courses nearby where you can sit back and enjoy the stunning Pennsylvania foliage. 1919 Market, however, sits right in the busy commotion of Center City.


We believe luxury shouldn’t cost a fortune. That’s why we offer our studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments at an affordable price. Become part of our apartment community and you’ll enjoy a beautiful space to call home as well as a variety of amenities such as a resort-style pool, movie theater with private viewing lounge, fitness center, billiards and poker tables, and more – all with easy access to the city; find out what it’s like to live the city life without paying city prices.
