Amazing apartment

I was the first to live in this apartment. I have been here 3 years and I love it. the location is great, whole foods near by a gym, great places to eat. very close to Center City. I couldn't say enough good things about the staff they are very helpful. the only draw back is the price but I think it is worth it.

Well worth the price

I have lived here for almost 2 years. It is on the more expensive side but it is well worth it for someone in residency or in any busy career. Everything is new (approx 3 years) so there is no worrying about things breaking down and if there is an issue, maintenance and front desk are available 24/7. The building is clean, lots of young professionals especially medical residents/fellows, 10-15 minute walk into Center City but you don't have to deal with Center City traffic. Neighborhood is safe and there is a Whole Foods around the corner. The apartments are beautiful and include all new appliances. There is a rooftop area with a grill, community space which is great for hosting parties or lounging, gym is accessible 24/7, and the property management organizes free happy hours and activities every 2 months or so. Lots of dogs. Favorite part is the coffee machine in the lobby where I get coffee-to-go every morning before heading out to work. I am very happy living here and will be sad when I have to move!

If you're looking for amenities, this place is it!

I've been living at the Granary for 2 years and have resigned our lease for a third. It's been great. Everything is updated. We're talking all kitchen appliances, washer/dryers, fixtures, flooring - it's all new. The gym, common rec area, and rooftop terrace are amazing. Even better than all of that is the level of service you receive. The staff are so friendly and help with everything from mailing and receiving your packages, to arranging cab rides, to requesting maintenance services, and the list goes on and on. The price may be a bit high for the amount of living space in the actual apartment, but after shopping around we found it to be comparable to other high rise apartments in the area. Very happy with this place!

Great Property / High Cost

The Granary is a great property provided you have the bank account to support it! Expect to pay $2,000+ easily for a 1 BR - decent sized, with a gorgeous kitchen. The bedroom for the 1 BR is small - will only fit a Queen and you will need to mount your TV.

It's a shame electric and water is no longer included - it's quite steep ($60-$130 AND $20-30 per month respectively). The amenities are nice - great gym and social center. They used to do happy hour every week, but that's decreased to about once a month, if that.

The rooftop is quite nice, with a grill to boot. Be wary though - apparently you're not longer allowed to have more than X number of visitors depending on the time. For July 4th, there were security guards and you couldn't have more than 4 people upstairs. Liability and all.

Management is very good at taking care of issues when they arise whether it's sanding the nice butcher block island or simply changing the lightbulb.

Again - as long as you're OK with paying the price, the Granary should suit your needs. Great property.

Beautiful apartment with amazing amenities

The Granary is a great place to live in. It locates near Logan circle/museum area and the neighborhood is beautiful. The apartments are brand new and with modern appliance. The living room and master bedroom is always full of sunlight and if your room is south facing, you will have a nice view of Philly skyline.
The common areas are spacious, well-designed and cozy. The gym on the 2nd floor is well-equipped and clean. The building has 24-hr concierge service and the management team is very friendly and helpful.
The only downside of the place is the size of the apartment. My bedrooms & storage space are not as spacious as I would like them to be. I could only fit a queen-sized bed and two night stands in the master bedroom.

Fairmount Reviews

25 reviews
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).
Pros: Ample street parking, safe area, very close to center city, new restaurants and bars, good and quick building management

Cons: Rent is a bit steep, but you do get a lot of space for your money. Pool/tub/gym area should be accessible past 11 pm and before 6 am for those who are up.
Fairmount is it's own self-contained neighborhood. It is easy to take public transportation to other popular parts of the city if you're near Broad Street, otherwise, it quickly becomes more tedious. It's a pretty neighborhood, with Green Street and the Art Museum nearby, and is developing rapidly. Parking near shops and restaurants on Fairmount Ave is more difficult than in Center City or Rittenhouse Square because of the number of apartments without garages in the area.
I was pleasantly surprised when I settled into Fairmount. It feels safe. It is full of families with young childrens and dogs and young professionals. There's also a great restaurant and bar selection.
Close to restaurants
Amazing area down to the museum to go jogging
10 minutes drive to work

Sometimes homeless people around
Can hear the noise from cars or bikes at night coming from vine street but tolerable
Have to take both septa and patco if working in Camden or can take a single ride in bus
I've never felt unsafe. The area is usually quiet at night. There are stores, bars, etc within 10-15min walking.
Walkable/bike-able area, restaurants & bars nearby, short walk to work/stores in Center City, garage across the street at an excellent monthly rate (compared to other options.) Three blocks to the main library.
Fairmount is a more affordable part of Philly that offers great restaurants within walking distance. It is close to the Art Museum and Kelly Drive, so you can go for a run or a bike ride, or visit Eastern State. The Broad Street line runs close by, so transportation into Center City or out to the suburbs is easily done, and it is not too far to Center City (less than a mile) so walking, biking, or taking an uber is an affordable option. Street parking is usually easy to find, but can get difficult on weekends or around Halloween when Terror Behind the Walls is going on. Overall, a really fun place to live!
