Executive Director
A Message from our Executive Director, Jody Thompson
As the executive director of this extraordinary community, I can promise you that every feature and detail of the environment here is thoughtfully planned and designed for one reason: to offer our residents the highest standard of service. From our elegant décor and furnishings to our tantalizing menus and superior amenities, we think you will agree that our community truly is a remarkable place to call home. On behalf of everyone here – from our tenured staff to our cheerful, always-busy residents – welcome.

“I love living at Atria Center City! The management is impeccable; the staff, hardworking and caring; and the building is beautiful. To top it off, the location could not be better: Center City Philadelphia. I always say, ‘If you are looking to live in a place like this, this is the place to live.'" 
Susie, Atria Center City resident
"As the president of the Resident Association at Atria Center City, I am in the position to evaluate the needs of my fellow residents. So many things are wonderful here: the staff, the aesthetics of the building, the location and more. But, if an issue should arise, the management is more than wiling to work with me to rectify it ASAP. Atria Center City is a great place to live!” 
Gloria, Atria Center City resident
“Living here lets me maintain my active lifestyle. The location is phenomenal; we are close to everything and can walk to the parks and museums. And, when I need to get somewhere, transportation is at my service. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.” 
Kay, Atria Center City resident
