The Royal Athena vs. The Commonwealth

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

Why Choose Us

If you’re looking for luxury apartments in Philadelphia, you may have come across The Commonwealth. While The Commonwealth has plenty to offer, we believe The Royal Athena is a better choice for ideal luxury living. Here’s why:

Community Amenities

At The Royal Athena, we want to be the apartments that come to mind when you think “luxury living.” In addition to stand-out apartment features (such as floor-to-ceiling windows, modern fixtures, and large bathrooms), we also offer community amenities that The Commonwealth can’t beat. As a resident, you’ll have access to our 24-hour clubhouse that includes flat-screen TVs, a fireplace, and billiards and poker tables. In addition, our pool and sundeck are perfect for unwinding and our private theater viewing lounge is the best place to watch a movie.


While city life is appealing, we know how many people enjoy the raw beauty of nature. While we offer luxury apartments near Philadelphia, our location is ideal for enjoying the best of both worlds. Not only will you find the nearby Schuylkill River, but you’ll also find a variety of parks and green spaces where you can hike, bike, or simply enjoy a picnic. In addition, there are several golf courses and playgrounds for recreation. At The Royal Athena, nature is never more than a few minutes away.

Studio Apartments

If you’re looking for a quaint, space-efficient studio apartment, you won’t find it at The Commonwealth. Instead, turn to our studio apartment options. We offer two floor plans – a traditional studio and a studio with a loft. Both are fitted with our traditional apartment features in an efficient living space that’s perfect for a student, working adult, or business stay.


At The Royal Athena, we believe luxury living should be affordable, which is why we offer studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom options at a reasonable price. As a resident, you’ll enjoy easy access to Philadelphia without having to pay the high costs of living there. Plus, with several exciting neighborhoods nearby (including Manayunk), you’ll find plenty of restaurants, pubs, cafes, shops, and nightlife opportunities for every occasion.

If you’re looking for the best luxury apartments in Philadelphia, skip The Commonwealth and find out why The Royal Athena is a great choice. Give us a call today to schedule a tour and learn more.
