Casco Viejo is Panama Citys “Old Town” that has been around well before the birth of Panama as a nation. We’re talking well over 300 years that people have inhabited this most charming and historical section of Panama City. It is here that you can absorb culture and tradtion just wandering around. As all reference books on Panama will mention, most of Panama City’s historical buildings are situated in this 38 block area referred to interchangeably as “Casco Viejo”, “Casco Antiguo”or “San Felipe”.
From historical churches to the Panama Canal Museum everywhere you turn in Casco Viejo you can find exciting things to see and do. This sector is also now starting to give way to restoration that will offer foreigners and natives alike attractive dwellings that are currently in great demand. In fact, several resident associations in partnerships with local businesses are doing all the right things so that Casco Viejo will always be a desirable place to live and at the same time preserve and enhance its rich history and culture. Furthermore, Casco Viejo is great for real estate investors. Whether you want to restore a building or acquire an already restored structure or unit, the opportunities here are terrific and the future looks bright as well.
The Isabella Building is situated near the entrance of Casco viejo (on 9th Street) and was successfully restored as of May of this year. It is also arguably considered to be the best value in all of Casco Viejo if you're talking 2 bedroom condo units. And especially so since any new owner will benefit from a 20 year property tax exemption.
As for the unit you have comfortable size living areas thoughout, an inviting balcony, plus you do get one designated parking spot. Please contact us directly at Inter Panama Real Estate Agency if you'd like to schedule a showing.
