The Royal Athena vs. The St. James

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

Why Choose Us

At The Royal Athena, our luxury apartments in Philadelphia have everything you need – from community amenities to beautiful surroundings to modern apartment features and more. When compared to The St. James, we believe you’ll find something special here.

Peaceful Lifestyle

If you’re looking for a peaceful lifestyle right outside of the city, our location is the perfect place. The Royal Athena is nestled alongside the Schuylkill River with beautiful views and easy access as well as access to nearby parks including Fairmount, Blue Bell, and more for hiking, biking, or a simple picnic. As a resident, you’ll enjoy the beauty of nature without having to deal with the noise and business of the city. And with the bustling neighborhood of Manayunk right over the river, there’s plenty to do when you want a taste of the urban life.


At The Royal Athena, we believe luxury should be affordable and that’s why our luxury apartments in Philadelphia give you a great living experience at a great price. We offer studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments in a variety of styles to meet all of your desires. Whether you’re a student, a business professional, or a small family, we have everything you need to feel right at home.

Community Amenities

While The St. James has community amenities similar to The Royal Athena, we have a few features that can really make a difference in your lifestyle. Whether you’ve had a long day at work or you’re just looking to relax, you’ll find a 24-hour clubhouse with a fireplace, flat screen TVs, billiards tables, and poker tables. You’ll also have access to a pool and sundeck, fitness center, movie theater with private viewing room, and more. We want you to feel at home at The Royal Athena and we’re happy to offer community amenities to all of our residents.
