Every so often it’s just nice to have a shopping day. While you could wander around Edgewater’s bustling neighborhood and find a lot of great stuff, there is one spot that has just about everything and more. The Shops at Liberty Place is a premier destination for all your retail needs. It’s all the joys of the shopping malls we grew up with, except with Philadelphia class and character. Often overlooked in the mix of exciting spots and designer shops it is surrounded by, this indoor shopping center is just as much an experience as it is a place of commerce.
Located on the corner of 16th and Chestnut Street, Liberty Place is only a 20-minute walk from your Edgewater apartment. In the heart of the shopping district, it’s nestled between the One Liberty Place and Two Liberty Place high-rise office towers. The Shops offer a diverse array of options, some of their current tenants include Bloomingdale’s, The Outlet Store, Bluebird Distilling, LOFT, Express, Godiva Chocolatier, Aldo, Kiehl’s, Victoria’s Secret, and Orangetheory Fitness. There’s plenty of spots to grab a meal while you shop as well. We love Hai Street Kitchen & Co, Cafe Spice, Kato’s Cajun, and Bain’s Deli, just to name a few.
Perhaps the best part of The Shops at Liberty Place is the atmosphere. A place of great architectural distinction, there aren’t many “shopping malls” with such unique details and high-end finishes. Walk through the doors and step into a world of grandeur, packed with old-world charm, soaring ceilings, and gleaming floors. The real show stopper is the Rotunda, located in the center of the building, with its breathtaking dome skylight. Top off your shopping day with a trip up to the One Liberty Place observation deck for panoramic views of the city.
