The Royal Athena Comparison

Quiet Living

Not only is Bridge located right in the city, but it’s also near the busy routes of I-95 and I-676, which can make living very noisy. If you enjoy more of a quiet living situation, you’ll love our location in Bala Cynwyd. We’re nestled among several green spaces that make for a peaceful environment. And when you’re up for some excitement, just head across the bridge to the bustling neighborhood of Manayunk.


Luxury apartments in Philadelphia should be affordable and at The Royal Athena, we work to give you the best living situation for the best price. Our apartments are perfect for a wide variety of residents including students, business professionals, couples, families, and more. You’ll enjoy beautiful living spaces in a wonderful location.


When you live in the city and reside somewhere like Bridge, you’re constantly surrounded by buildings and structures. If nature is more your preference, we recommend a residence at The Royal Athena instead. We’re located right on the Schuylkill River where you can enjoy the beautiful view as well as a nice walk, bike, or run. In addition, the 9,000-acre Fairmount Park is right around the corner and we’re close to several other small parks and golf courses. When you live at The Royal Athena, nature is always nearby.
