Parking and Arrival Info
LOCATION: 1300 N Front St. Philadelphia PA 19122 - Look for a white stucco building with a red door on the northwest corner of Front and Thompson. Google maps link here
DOORBELL: When you arrive, ring the doorbell (the blue button with a bell shape on it). We will get an alert and then buzz you in. Pull the door when you hear the long "beeeeeep".
**Sometimes the doorbell system alerts don't work. If the doorbell takes more than 1 minute and you are still not getting buzzed in: Text or call Gary at 215-910-9614 or Eric at 847-322-4907 (these are our personal numbers so please only call if you are absolutely stuck outside or having an issue in the studio)
Free street parking is usually available within a block or two. You can temporarily park in front of our roll-up gate to your load gear through the front door of the studio. Please do not block our gate for more time than your load in/out.
There is a small FREE 2 hour parking lot a block away at:
There is also a ParkAmerica paid parking lot on our block at 1320 N Front Street
***Parking in our side lot is no longer available to the general public. We are very sorry for this inconvenience.
We will continue to allow private parking and side door private studio access for tour vehicles, non-typical gear load in situations, and high profile VIP clients that require a more secure private entrance. Please contact us in advance if you have a special request to use the side lot for parking.
