Has Potential to Be Great but Management is Subpar

Tower Place seemed like the perfect place to live - especially for students and families. However, management can be very rude at times. The location is prime right next to the Spring Garden stop for BSL and the amenities are nice - new gym, patio area, and business lounge. The building is seems new but there are power outrages on the regular. Overall nice and safe place. Also beware - you can't open windows on your own, the security guard must come do it.

Modern living space, everything I need

I love the wood floors, recently remodeled kitchen with granite countertops, the outdoor space & proximity to the BSL stop. They gym is fantastic and the management responds to maintenance requests within a few hours. Tower Place is great value for your money. I looked at apartments a few blocks closer to center city and the rent increased exorbitantly. Another plus is the parking deal with the lot 2 blocks away. My car is safe and for no extra cost.

Excellent place to live as a young couple or single with roommates.

The space is open and we'll designed and caters well to a couple or living with a roommate. The two bedroom, two bathroom layout is great for comfortable living space and entertaining family and friend when they visit. They gym in the basement has a great variety of equipment and as a former athlete it does cover all the bases for a basic and thorough workout. Parking is just a block or two away so it's very convenient if you do have a car.

Great location for CC access

Easy to get around town with access to the BSL right outside the door and walking distance to both Center City and Fairmount restaurants and happenings. Nice sized apartments, beautiful wood floors and dark cabinetry with very large windows that let in great natural light. Recently remodeled gym is a great plus. 24 hour a day front desk attendant makes for easy package pickup and added safety.

Great Place!

An excellent and friendly place to live! The management is great, and it's a short walking distance to all the wonderful bars, clubs, and restaurants in the Gayborhood and Chinatown. Commuting to anywhere from here is very easy as well. Lovely place to live!

Tower Place

Tower Place is a nice place to live, especially if you own a pet. Great high end amenities and overall very friendly neighbors and staff. It is located in a great area between the Art Museum / Fairmount and Center City with great transportation options.

Good experience!

The building is relatively new and very safe. Security guard on site 24/7. Gym is large and clean. Maintence is very helpful and timely with requests. Management is great and always accessible as it is in the building. Usually quiet, though there are instances of neighbors being loud. However, you can ask the security guard to ask them to quiet down. Overall, a good experience.

Awesome location with many amenities

These are well maintained, relatively new apartments with one of the most ideal locations in the city. Each apartment is spacious with large windows. Amenities include 24/7 access to a beautiful city view lounge, and complementary parking, printing, and coffee.

LOVE IT

Tower Place is right by the SEPTA and incredibly clean. There is 24/7 Security so the building feels very safe. The amenities are great, although the building doesn't have a pool. New kitchens, hardwood floors, walk-in closets, great bathrooms, and good water pressure. Very easy and fun living. The other residents are all really friendly and the building consists mostly of families, doctors, and med/dental students.

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.
