Over the last decade, the Tacony neighborhood has seen some significant improvements in design, and a steady increase in selling prices. Thanks to the hard work of our neighbors, leaders, and organizations, Tacony has risen to the top as one of the best places to purchase a home in Philadelphia. With a variety of home designs; space for front and back yards; a rich history; and a sense of community that’s hard to find in a big city, Tacony is the perfect place for a growing family or anyone else looking to start out somewhere new.
In Tacony, there are still homes and other buildings built as early as the 1870s! Because of this long history, Tacony has a variety of home styles and options for anyone from history buffs to contemporary design lovers. In addition to all of the homes already standing, a new apartment building with 96-units and a rooftop deck is currently under construction at 7165 Keystone Ave!
Being in the Northeast part of Philadelphia, Tacony has the benefit of space. That means that most homes have yards and gardens that our friends and neighbors can take pride in. Throughout the neighborhood you can spot gorgeous blooming flowers, immaculate lawns, lush trees, and beautiful landscaping. Some homes have raised beds with rustic stone walls, others have sprawling lawns; but every home in Tacony has the potential for something beautiful.
Living in Tacony is like living in a small town, with all the conveniences of a city. With easy access to public transportation and a thriving business corridor along Torresdale Avenue, there’s always something to do or somewhere to go. Despite this, Tacony feels more private than the average city neighborhood, and has a close knit community that truly cares about the future of the area. There is no time like the present to find your place in this lovely neighborhood!
