This might be the first legal Airbnb rental in Philadelphia

Most Airbnb rentals in Philadelphia are illegal, but a pair of developers have decided to go by the book: they got the city's approval to have one unit in their new apartment building to be exclusively for customers of the rental startup.

PostGreen Homes is building a development that will have one unit specifically for AirBnB. That development is not the one shown here. This is a different Postgreen building.
