The Royal Athena vs. Oxford Village

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

Why Choose Us

When searching for luxury apartments in Philadelphia, you’ll come across a variety of places that all offer similar things. At The Royal Athena, however, we have several advantages over places like Oxford Village. Let us explain why we’re the perfect choice for your next home:

Surrounding Neighborhoods

At The Royal Athena, we’re in a location that’s ideal for those who love to explore Philadelphia’s neighborhoods. Our luxury apartments in Philadelphia are right across the Schuylkill River from the charming neighborhood of Manayunk, where you’ll find a bustling scene of shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, coffee shops, and more. Simply walk across Pencoyd Bridge (which you’ll have private access to) and you’ll be in for a fun experience, day or night. Nearby Wissahickon and East Falls also have plenty to offer when it comes to dining and shopping.


There are just some things that make an apartment better and one of those things is nature. While Oxford Village is located in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city, The Royal Athena gives you the opportunity to step outside your door and relax. With the Schuylkill River, Fairmount Park, and many other green spaces just a few minutes away, you can easily escape your busy lifestyle and enjoy a nice hike, bike ride, or picnic. In addition, there are several golf courses and playgrounds nearby for even more recreation.

Perfect for Families

At Oxford Village, you’ll find that the majority of the apartment tenants are students. While this can be great for those looking for student housing, other people like families and business professionals are likely seeking a more mature community. At The Royal Athena, our two-bedroom and three-bedroom floor plans are perfect for families while our studio and one-bedroom floor plans are perfect for business professionals. You’ll enjoy a friendly community and a quiet environment.
