PHILADELPHIA, PA., November 24, 2020 – Scope Commercial Real Estate Services, LLC (“SCOPE”), a leading middle-market multifamily investment sales firm has announced the sale of Box Factory Lofts, 20 units with an adjacent development component in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. The property sold for $7,150,000.

Philip Sharrow had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the seller, a Philadelphia-based entity, and also represented the buyer.

“Fishtown continues to see a surge of growth through its community of top restauranteurs, national brands, and diverse professional and creative community,” says Sharrow. “With its overall vision in mind, the neighborhood is just getting started. SCOPE has a number of additional opportunities and ways to participate in this growth submarket.”
