Ok place with great ceilings and spacious, but lousy management

Lofts 640 is one of the few places in Philly with covered parking built-in that is still affordable and close to Center City. I love the location, and the lofts style, but management could be better, friendlier, and more available. And they need to replace the carpets!

Great management and amenities

We have lived here for 2 years and love it. The front desk people are great, and take the time to know everyone in the building. The amenities are fantastic - pool and gym are never busy, at times it's almost like having your own private pool. The maintenance requests were always responded to quickly. The aesthetic is very modern (all lofts). I felt that it was well worth the price.

Mixed bag but pretty good overall

The building included a lot of amenities, which were useful. Apart from the couple of restaurants right next to it, it's a short walk to the Fairmount neighborhood, and a more substantial trip down to Center City and the rest of the action in Philadelphia. Maintenance response was good, but some of our problems took months to be resolved. From speaking to others around the building, it seems a bunch of units had problems with their electricity bills, which were always very high for everyone. The front desk is very helpful to have, depending on who's working. Overall, it had everything I needed and I enjoyed living there, so long as the bar wasn't set too high. If I had to do it again, I would do it for a slightly lower rent.

Good value

Big place around 900-1000 sq feet with good amenities and included parking which is huge. Decent neighborhood but not the best. Very close to Chinatown and walkable to museum area and center city. Bad thing is they are very strict about no pets. Door to door to cooper is probably around 20 minutes

Great apartment building in fun neighborhood

I love the amenities that come with this building and reduced cable/internet discount. The gym and swimming pool are enough for my needs and great rooftop for a change of scenery. Alla Spina is right across the street and Fairmount Ave hosts a bunch of great bars and restaurants. Only gripe is I do wish the building was dog friendly.

Very spacious & good amenities

While you can find cheaper 1 br in a building, lofts 640 truly is the best bang for your buck. Pool and hot tub are only open til 11 pm, but gym is being improved on with new perks (free trainer). The North Broad stretch is up and coming, with new bars, apartments. You feel the city living without the true traffic/chaos since Fairmount is still a residential area.

Love it!

I moved here more out of necessity than desire -- I needed an affordable apartment with a secure parking lot. Lofts 640 has delivered more than I could have expected! Quiet, nice amenities, helpful staff. Love it here! Perhaps most notable is the amount of space you get for your dollar -- way more than any other building in the area or, most likely, the city.

Quiet and Clean

This building is constructed of solid concrete, which is nice, because it helps to muffle the noise from neighbors. The ceilings are high, with large windows and gives it a modern feel. The windows however, are not insulated well at all, and in the winter, they let in a lot of air. The forced AC/Heat work, but since the vent is fairly high on the wall, the heat just rises, and it runs constantly trying to keep the apartment at a 63 degrees in the winter.The gym is great for an apartment building, however, it does get cramped when you have people trying to use jump ropes, Pilates, and other routines that take up floor space. BUT, there is a pilates/Yoga studio space. Overall, this is a really nice community to live in, and management is very cooperative and helpful. The building offers social gatherings for residents, and holiday parties.

Fairmount Reviews

21 reviews
Fairmount is an excellent area to live in. It is walking distance to the Schuylkill trail, great for biking to work, exercising or relaxing by the river. The area has great restaurants, easy-to-find parking and an excellent massive Whole Foods with 4 restaurants inside. It is also very easy to walk to downtown Philly (15-40 min walk for most of Center City and University City).
Pros: close-knit neighborhood where residents look out for each other and know each others' names, lots of families and students, low noise, walkable to Girard and Fairmount BSL stops, close to Fairmount Ave shops and restaurants, overall v. safe feel

Cons: be careful and use common sense walking around Girard and Broad at night - some blocks are sketchier than others
The Fairmount area is a great place to live. It is close to a lot of the city's attractions and art, and equally close to some great outdoor space. The neighborhood is generally pretty quiet, and parking is easier than in Center City. There are a lot of coffee shops, restaurants, and pubs within easy walking distance. There are a lot of neighborhood events, especially in the summer, that are great to attend. The major downfall (if you see it that way) is the city run events that happen at the art museum from time to time. These really close down the neighborhood and make parking and driving really hard. But, they are usually fun to attend or spectate.
I absolutely loves the location. Easy walk to work, good food options ranging from fine dining to late-night pizza to bars. It's close to a Whole Foods and a local family owned market called Kleins. Unfortunately, Fairmount is only assessable by bus. City Hall and 30th Street Station is a 30 minute walk away if you need to take the MFL or Regional Rail lines.
- close to whole foods
- close to amazing restaurants
- close walk into center city
- close enough to 2 train stations
- close to many bus routes
- close to many museums
- close to kelly drive and Fairmount park

- far from liquor stores
- far from nightlife/popular philly bars
Excellent, easily available restaurants, stores, and museums. Dogs love the park by the museum.
Lots of bars and restaurants, close to the river/park, fairly calm with tree lined streets (makes me forget I live in a big city sometimes). I like that I'm a bit removed from the craziness of Center City but still can get there easily if I want to (15-20 min walk, quick cab/subway ride).
A neighborhood feeling minutes walk away from center city. Larger apartments.
