National Celebrates Official Grand Opening of The Noble, Northern Liberties’ Newest Residential Tower

June 28, 2024

13-story, 360-unit residential tower integrates Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties and Old City neighborhoods

National Real Estate Advisors, LLC, in partnership with Kushner Real Estate Group (KRE), celebrated the grand opening of The Noble, a 13-story, 360-unit residential tower at 200 Spring Garden Street, Philadelphia. The event, featuring a poolside party on June 27 with City Fitness, welcomed residents, friends, and special guest speakers. The project was developed in a joint venture between National’s subsidiary, National Real Estate Development, LLC, and KRE Group.

“The Noble creates a new corner in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties neighborhood furthering the connection to the Old City community,” said Daniel Killinger, President of National Real Estate Development. “So much of this new tower is inspired by the vibrant arts and culture scene in Philadelphia to create a place where individuality is encouraged, diversity is embraced, and personality is expressed. Thank you to all our wonderful partners who joined us in this venture to bring The Noble to our community.”

“I am pleased to welcome the residents of the Noble to the First Council District!  I have worked with the National Real Estate Development team on other projects in the District and they have been a great community partner,” said Mark Squilla, City of Philadelphia Councilmember Mark Squilla (District 1). “As we increase the housing density in this area, we help to enhance the livelihood of our business corridor and grow the neighborhood.”


Design Inspired by Local Architecture

Positioned at the corner of 200 Spring Garden Street in Philadelphia, The Noble is designed by Handel Architects with interiors by Major. The Noble’s modern architecture takes inspiration from the warehouse-style buildings of Northern Liberties and the unique urban environment. The building is brought to life by hand-laid brick on both the street and courtyard facades and a curving metal cornice. The porte-cochere curves around a column “tree” that splays outward to support the building above.

“The Noble marks a meaningful addition to urban living in Philadelphia”, said Jonathan Kushner, President of KRE Group.  “This project not only adds to the architectural beauty of Northern Liberties but also taps into the rich artistic fabric of the community. We are excited to see The Noble contribute to the vibrancy and growth of the neighborhood.”.

In collaboration with Mural Arts Philadelphia, The Noble’s art program includes a mural created by renowned Miami-based artist HOXXOH (Douglas Hoekzema).  Using a unique, pressurized spray paint application technique utilizing gardening hoses and nozzles, HOXXOH used this process to create the improvised 1,365 sq. ft. mural on a corrugated metal wall facing The Noble’s outdoor garden. HOXXOH’s mural is a stunning display of sweeping color fields and abstract designs that speak to the imagination and challenge perceptions of what public art can be.


Where You Play

In addition to state-of-the-art residential units, The Noble features a range of shared amenities available to meet the needs of modern city-dwellers. Tenants of The Noble, in which City Fitness resides, will be provided membership to City Fitness Northern Liberties.

“Originating in the heart of Northern Liberties, City Fitness is delighted to introduce our latest cutting-edge facility to residents of The Noble and the surrounding neighborhood”, shared Ken Davies, City Fitness Founder and CEO. “This state-of-the-art location is a showcase of our foundational principles – vibrant facilities with premium equipment, an inviting atmosphere, and elevated programming and personal training. With offerings like our rooftop lap pool, Olympic lifting platforms, enhanced Thrive small group training, and advanced recovery treatment, City Fitness Northern Liberties is the launchpad for personal enrichment.”


Amenities of The Noble further include:

  • Flagship 17,000 SF City Fitness Gym
    • Other amenities include cryotherapy, saunas, HydroMassage, full-service locker rooms, and a juice bar.
  • Year-round heated 75-foot pool with Skyline Views & Deck
