Market Street Steps Replacement Project 

Short term inconvenience, long term improvement. That is a good description of the project currently underway. The Market Street steps have been removed, and the construction of the new steps and ADA-compliant ramp is in progress. Check out the DRWC website for periodic updates and the recommended temporary walking route. We look forward eagerly to the project's completion later this year.

 FHA Approval 

The Pier 3 Condominium Association was advised by counsel that the Pier has gained FHA mortgage approval. This is an added feature when owners are selling their unit and lending is needed by the buyer. 

 Hot Water Tank Age Campaign 

All hot water heaters must be replaced if they are more than ten years old. Picture of label on tank is required as proof. Fines for no response ($50 per month) went into effect on March 1, 2016! 

 Storage Lockers Available 

A few storage bins are still available in both the North and South storage rooms.  Residents can rent a small bin for $12/month and a large one for $24/month.  Contact the manager if you are interested in renting a bin.

 In-Unit Maintenance Offered! 

Good news! Pier 3's maintenance department can perform various services within your unit for an hourly fee plus materials. Labor is charged at $60 per hour in 15 minute increments. All requests must be in writing. Contact the manager if you have questions.

 The Benjamin Franklin Bridge 
Benjamin Franklin Bridge

The Ben Franklin Bridge is illuminated in various colors throughout the year to celebrate holidays, commemorate special events and acknowledge the work of various organizations.  Here's some information about the bridge.

One of Philadelphia’s main attractions on New Year’s Eve and July 4th draws thousands of people to the Delaware River Waterfront each year delighting them in a breathtaking fireworks display. From our back deck residents can watch one of the most spectacular views in the city.

 The Tall Ships Challenge 

The Tall Ships Challenge at Penn's Landing is a sight to behold, and what better place than our own back deck, where we share in the pageantry of this annual event, which drifts in a three year cycle between the waters of the Great Lakes, the Pacific and the Atlantic coasts of North America. 

Residents can catch a glimpse, step aboard and even set sail on the ships, which dock at Penn’s Landing and the Camden Waterfront.

  • A short walking distance to Old City and its famous restaurants.
  • A comfortable stroll to Festival Pier, Race Street Pier, and Sugarhouse Casino.
  • Adjacent to Penn's Landing and its full schedule of events.
  • The absolute best location to watch the fireworks on New Year's Eve and during Welcome America (4th of July) Week. 
  • Not designed as a high rise building, Pier 3 allows the residents to have an up-close view of River activities.
  • Residents enjoy the trees and plantings placed and maintained by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society in front of Pier 3.
