Starbucks

By | Lincoln Square

We have all heard it before: “There’s a Starbucks on every corner.”

But as a resident of the Lincoln Square Apartment building you will not have to cross the street or even leave your building to getting a refreshing cup of Joe. The Lincoln Square Starbucks will soon be located on the ground floor of Lincoln Square Apartment Building.

Picture it. You wake up late for work in the morning and cannot seem to shake off the exhaustion that an early work day so often brings. You stumble out of bed, shower, get dressed, and take a short elevator ride to the lobby where, as you rub the sleep from your eyes, a cheerful Starbucks barista greets you by name and asks if you want the usual. One sip and you are ready to go. Never before has coffee tasted so good or been so convenient. This Starbucks on the ground floor of your building affords you myriad opportunities: the ability to work from “home” in a distraction-free environment (with free wifi to boot!), a fantastic place to meet up with friends, or just a place to decompress after a taxing day at the office. Whatever the reason for your visit, Starbucks’ extensive menu has something to offer that will leave you satisfied.

Other neighborhood shopping opportunities that will be located at the ground floor of Lincoln Square Apartments, or nearby in the area, include

Make sure to sign your lease for Lincoln Square Apartments to enjoy all of these wonderful resources and everything else Lincoln Square has to offer!

Sprouts

By | Lincoln Square

Giant, Acme, Wegmans and now Sprouts.

Philadelphia has a variety of grocery stores that you can choose from for all your grocery needs. Organic or locally grown, any of these stores have what you are looking for. Soon you will be able to add Sprouts to your marketplace list.

Sprouts, located at 1000 South Broad Street, will be the only store in Pennsylvania, so future Lincoln Square residents will be extremely fortunate to rent there. Sprouts has a mission to provide the healthiest options to customers as possible so everyone can have the choice for a better, healthier lifestyle.  The grocery store was founded back in 1943 and has always been passionate about healthy eating. Not only does Sprouts ensure the promise for fresh produce, but they also promise to give back to the community they serve by volunteering and support local events. All over the nation, this past year alone, Sprouts stores supplied more than 2 million meals to families in need during the “Grab ‘N’ Give” holiday food drive. The grocer also donated more than 16,000 pounds of food and water to Hurricane Harvey and Irma victims as well as raised over $350,000 for the American Red Cross. Local nonprofit organizations also received $2.2 million in support and 830 community events were supported through volunteering and in-kind donations.

The Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation, founded in 2015, is another brainchild of the grocery chain which dedicates time, energy and money to the community it supports. Sprouts partners with many different organizations including REAL School Gardens, Vitamin Angels, and Autism Speaks in order to promote health education and nutrition, help people with disabilities and other health concerns and, of course, alleviate hunger and food security when possible.  So why not get your groceries AND benefit your community?

Broad Street Run

By | Lincoln Square

Ready? Set. Go! You could not have wished for a more beautiful day to run in a marathon throughout Philadelphia.

The Broad Street Run is on May 6th, which is forecasted to be an overcast, 70-degree day. This is the run’s 39th year and has always been historically successful with over 40,000 participants each year. You must register to run in the race but your registration fee can be donated to a number of different charities including the American Cancer Society, American Association for Cancer Research, Fairmount Park Conservancy,  Students Run Philly Style and Back on My Feet. In fact, 39 teams and 663 participants have raised over $350,000 for the American Cancer Society, exclusively!

If you are motivated to join in this run you can find more information about how to enter through their website at broadstreetrun.com.  Also on their website are training articles and videos that will help you prepare for the 10-mile marathon. Lincoln Square apartments will be perfect for training for the marathon. With a large outdoor fitness area which includes a running track, you can train for the run with your friends, family, and even your dog if you want!

Make sure to bring your family with you to the race even if they are not participating to cheer you on. Children can even have fun during the day before the Broad Street Run at the Philadelphia Navy Yard at 7 in the morning. There will be caricature artists, face painting, inflatables, petting zoo, balloon artists and even a mini-run called the Dunkin’ Munchkin Run. Kids of all ages will love everything that has to do with the Broad Street Run.

The course starts at Central High School Athletic Field at Broad Street and Somerville Avenue. You will be running on Broad Street past many different Philadelphia neighborhoods. Music groups, high school bands, cheerleading squads, church choirs, and drill teams will be there alongside your family to cheer you and the other participants to the finish line at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. May 6th is sure to be a fun-filled day for you and your family!
