The Pennsylvanian, which you might recognize as the glorious, beautiful venue that supported the epic Toast18 New Years Eve party, is way more than just a historic building downtown. And no, it’s not a hotel, either (surprised?). It’s an amazing apartment building that doubles as an incredible event space, and we want to move in right now.

It’s within walking distance of the Strip District and Market Square, has just been remodeled, and offers a variety of living options from studios to two bedrooms. Plus, we recently learned that historic buildings are more durable and soundproof than newer buildings (*wink*).

Read on, and let the apartment inspo begin.

1. A mingling of eras

These apartments have just been upgraded to reflect a modern design, while maintaining it’s luxuriously historic character. It’s like the idea catalog apartment of your dream, but no assembly required.

2. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a designer lighting package

Not just *regular* lights. You’ll want to bask all day in this amazingly lit space, thanks to huge wall-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city. Plus, your houseplants will love all the sun.

3. Killer kitchens

Let’s be real: most of us are self-proclaimed foodies. This kitchen comes with best-in-class stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and will probably inspire you to start your own cooking blog (or at least learn how to make pasta, stay in your lane).

4. In-home washer/dryer

There are washer and dryers IN YOUR APARTMENT. We don’t know about you guys, but that’s a luxury to us peasants who need to haul our clothes to the laundromat.

5. Nest thermostat and protect systems


Juxtaposed by it’s historic feel, these apartments are fully-equipped smart homes that you can control from you phone. Tech, much?

6. Guest rental units

Got friends or family coming to town? No need to pile them on sofas or on the living room floor. You can rent a Lyric’s short-term unit and use it like a guest house.

7. On-site 24/7 mini market

The Pennsylvanian is all about making living easy for their residents. There’s a mini self-service convenience store stocked with drinks and snacks for late-night cravings or other household items you may need in a pinch.

8. 24/7 fitness center

No excuses. This gym is fully loaded with weights, cardio equipment, a bike and yoga room, and tons of mirrors so you can check yourself out while you get your workout on.on. It also features Welbeats Virtual Fitness Training program which is basically a personal trainer for your community! #FitLife

9. Accommodating AF

Between the valet, bike storage, package services, and dry cleaning pickup and delivery, you’ll never need walk in the cold to your apartment again (or worry about locking your bike up outside). Plus, there’s a 24/hour on-site concierge to provide exceptional service to residents. Yinz fancy, huh?

10. Social opportunities and residential lounge

Want discounted tickets to dope events like last years NYE party, happy hours, and more? How about a chill space to get some work done when you need a change of scenery? This area is perfect and gives us old-school university library vibes.

11. Always friendly: we love pets!

Pupperinos and catatos for everyone. Pets are the best, get you one.
