Back in 1966, Casa Farnese was the first affordable senior housing complex in the City of Philadelphia. Today it is still a bustling modern high rise residential building offering affordable studio and one bedroom apartments to seniors.

Center City apartment shoppers will appreciate the open floor plans, balconies with city views, natural lighting and efficient space designs.  With proximity to shopping, restaurants, libraries, theaters and public transportation, Casa Farnese is a one-of-a-kind residence in the heart of the vibrant downtown neighborhood known as Washington Square West.

Casa Farnese contains 288 apartment units for adults 62 and over. Two thirds of all residents (196 units) are Section 8 approved.
The remaining 92 apartments are rented at market rate to seniors 62 and over, most of whom are at 80% of median income or less.
