Welcome.  Along the banks of the Schuylkill River and just over the iconic Falls Bridge is a place that 11,000 Philadelphians call home.

The story of East Falls spans over 300 years.  Once an industrial community know for textile mills and catfish dinners, East Falls has been re-imagined and today stands as a vibrant neighborhood at the gateway to the Philadelphia metro area.

We like to think of East Falls as an urban village, with ferfile ground for business and life.  it’s the genuine article, a place of civic leaders and corner store operators; educators and entrepreneurs; creative class and working class.  One thing is for sure, it’s the perfect spot to have a business, make a home, or maybe both.
