Welcome to West Lofts
West Lofts is a loft apartment building converted from the historic West Philadelphia High School which has a rich legacy in the city of Philadelphia. The apartments have high ceilings and large windows with brick sills, and many have the original hardwood floors – the very definition of architectural character. The building is conveniently located just west of the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) and a quick 15-minute subway commute to center city – door to door! The pet-friendly building offers a variety of apartment sizes; in fact, there are more than 70 unique floor plans because the interior designer sought to preserve as much of the original character as possible.
