With 60 design-packed, fully furnished apartments housed set within a 25-storey building in Midtown Village, Philadelphia, ROOST East Market—the third and largest property to date for owners Method Co., the team behind Fishtown’s ravishingly handsome Wm. Mulherin’s Sons—provides an eclectic mix of one- and two-bedroomed boltholes in one of the blue collar city’s most idiosyncratic neighbourhoods.
As with ROOSTs in Midtown and Rittenhouse, ROOST East Market boasts fully equipped kitchens, contemporary furnishings, antique elements, custom lighting, and unique artwork—interior designers Morris Adjmi Architects (who also oversaw the architectural design) conceiving the apartments and public spaces with a sense of place and purpose; creating the perfect welcoming environment for extended-stay travellers.
