1701 arch

The arch is in a great location directly across from the Comcast building close to love park and city hall. They have a great gym on the second floor of the building. The apartments are definitely on the smaller side but they are very modern and nice. Quiet building I can never hear anyone else on my floor, I am on the 12th. Would highly recommend

Great location and management, basic amenities

We lived in The Arch for 4 years and had no serious complaints. Teresa is a great building manager. Overall, nice apartments, though a little on the small side. Gym, study room, and TV room are nice though basic. Liked the ease of bill pay/rent payments and online management system. Good location near Rittenhouse though street parking is terrible for visitors. Decent garages nearby. Bike share stops closeby which makes traveling around the city easy. Would recommend this building to anyone looking to live in Center City.

The Arch is a nice building, but the location has some drawbacks.

The Arch is a nice and beautiful building. Apartments are small, but more than large enough and brand new (building was converted from an early 20th-century office building a few years ago). It has a small gym, a media-viewing room, and a common lounge. Doormen are on duty 24 hours a day. My experiences with the management company have been mostly positive. The residents seem to be a mix of young-to-middle age professionals, with some graduate students thrown in. The main drawback is the location. The Arch is certainly in the center, located in the financial district just across from the Comcast Tower, but is a bit farther from campus than buildings closer to Rittenhouse Square. The walk to campus takes roughly 30 minutes; however, access to public transport is good. Its location in the financial district has two additional drawbacks: first, the surrounding area doesn't feel like a 'neighborhood' and is very corporate, and second, the area can be quite noisy especially during the week. Street noise tends to echo off the surrounding skyscrapers, and the Comcast building's loading dock is just below. Truck noise (backup beeps, etc.) is frequent. There are also no 'normal' grocery stores nearby. However, the building is equidistant to Trader Joe's and also the Reading Terminal Market (which is excellent surprisingly cheap for produce). There is also a Wawa open 24 hours located in the building. One final note: be aware that Comcast will be constructing its new skyscraper a block away, starting in the summer of 2014.

Logan Square Reviews

77 reviews
Great location for convenience - along the river, smack between Trader Joe's and Whole Foods (7-8 min walk to each). About 30 min walk to hospital or 10 min bike ride. Quiet neighborhood, not too many bars or restaurants nearby.
Very safe - neighborhood feel. Lots of families around, cute row-homes. Very close to the River Trail, which makes biking and running a breeze. About 7-10 minute walk to the trolley; about 20 min walk to Drexel.
It's not Rittenhouse, but it's not as pricey; it's not Washington, so it's not as oddly out of the way; and it's not Franklin, thank God. Logan is lots of families, a handful of schools, some great museums, a scattering of acceptable restaurants, a Whole Foods, an excellent running trail, and some of the most accessible transit options are found on Market as soon as you cross the river. Once you're off that, it's fairly quiet, and the parkway quiets down once commuting is over (unless, of course, a world-class concert or festival is taking place, and is that really that much of a problem?) and the walk from Logan into Center City is a breeze.
Pros: Culturally rich place - near the museum district; 15-30 min walk will take you everywhere - Old City, Chinatown, South St., University City, etc. (Well perhaps that's true for everywhere east of Schuylkill) Work, Play, and Shop within walkable distance - really, no need for a car. (if you need one, car/bikeshare is everywhere here.)

Cons: JFK and Market st. can be quite noisy with cars and fire engines from the nearby fire dept - some people may have difficulties sleeping at night due to that.
Logan Square is top tier and has been ranked the nicest neighborhood in Philly. You are in walking distance to two grocery stores (Trader Joe's and Whole Foods) and can go anywhere in center city in under 20 minutes walking. Walking from here to Annenberg takes approximately 30 minutes. Biking takes 10.
I live at 21 and market, which is a few blocks north of Rittenhouse but I would classify my neighborhood more as Rittenhouse than as Logan Square. Live next to the Trader Joe's ad 3 blocks from Whole Foods. Tons of restaurants/coffee shops within easy walking distance as well as a 7/11, CVS, and Rite Aid.
It's a business district so it's dead at night, but it's a a 5-10 minute walk to Rittenhouse square so it doesn't make much of a difference. Its also a 5 minute walk from Trader Joe's.
Getting to 2401 is a little bit of a pain. Taking the trolley to campus is great.
Logan Square is a great neighborhood. It is very close to the bars in Center City, but has a more secluded feel than something like Rittenhouse or Old City.
