A Unique Piece of History in Philadelphia's Logan Square Neighborhood

From grain silo to disco hotspot to unique live/work space, the Tidewater has a storied past, often playing a key role in iconic Philadelphia moments. This unique structure was built to replace the former wooden grain silo in 1925. In the early 70s it housed Astro Disc, a popular disco where high caliber celebrities like Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor went to “see and be seen” when in Philadelphia.

In 1977, famed architect Ken Parker purchased the building and created his own live/work oasis. Parker's architectural firm was housed in the lower 2 floors, while his lavish, jungle-themed home, which included a rooftop greenhouse jacuzzi and outdoor terrace garden, occupied the top 4 stories.

Become part of the vibrant Logan Square neighborhood, known for its art galleries, trendy restaurants, and cultural gems. The Benjamin Franklin Museum, Rodin Museum, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are all just a scenic stroll away.
