Love the building, very expensive

I love everything about living at 2116 chestnut, except for the rent. My apartment is new, updated, clean, floor to ceiling windows, large closets, has a doorman, and includes a great gym and amenity floor. It is a quick walk to work (~20 min from CHOP/Penn). The management is excellent, and fixes anything that breaks within a day. It is very quiet, I have never heard a peep from my neighbors or upstairs. My only gripe is the rent. My unit is a corner unit on a high floor with a balcony, so you could find a 1BR on a lower floor for a little bit cheaper.

Apt review

Outstanding location and amenities. Very nice luxury clean apartments. Maintenance excellent as is management and remainder of staff. Love the location - near great restaurants/gyms/cafes/bars, 20 minutes walk from the hospital, ~5 minute walk to Rittenhouse Square. On the pricier side.

Mostly great

Good: gym, distance to Penn campus, distance to Rittenhouse Square, print center, quiet, large apartments. This is a big upgrade coming from NYC.

Bad: poor blinds on windows, especially in the morning if you're facing east, mice on 5th floor outdoor patio, lack of responsiveness from management (and annoying emails - no live Xmas trees)

Great experience!

I love the building. Most of the Wharton community lives there, and it is easy from a social perspective. The common rooms are great, we do a lot of events there. I strongly recommend having a wooden floor instead of carpet.
Overall, great experience!

Wharton Mothership

We all live here; there's a tremendous advantage to that. It's the place to be; lots of events take place here, I can easy meet up to work with fellow students. Place is very nice and the management is lovely & responsive. Kinda pricey for Philly but you'll find the same situation at 1919 Market, Riverloft etc.

Perfect for a student living alone. Building is new, nice and spacious. The location is ideal for walking to and from class.

2116 Chestnut

This building has 100+ Wharton students so the moving process was very easy and accommodating for students. The 1BR apts are ~750 square feet, which is plenty of space for a couple. There is good storage space and the kitchen stuff is nice and new. It's a bit on the pricey side and they don't allow subletting in the summer. Management isn't very responsive, but maintenance requests are addressed very quickly.

About Fitler Square

Situated right along the Schuylkill River, Fitler Square is a quaint neighborhood full of old-school Philadelphia charm. It's part of a larger area more commonly referred to as 'Schuylkill' that's also comprised of Devil's Pocket and Grays Ferry. Renters rave about this area for the nearby parks and...

Fitler Square Reviews

The neighborhood is perfect for my needs. I am 1 block from the Schulykill park (and the running/biking trail) (and dog park, basketball courts, tennis courts). I'm also half a block from Fitler Square. I am about 7 minutes via bike from CHOP and on closer to my clinic site than the hospital. I'm north of South Street so closer to the action and very close to the gym. Also Delancey is a very good looking street.
Wharton bubble. I love it. Decent restaurants-- not as many fast+healthy+good-value meal options nearby as I'd like but many nice places. Nightlife is what Wharton makes it. Easy walk to some cool stuff in town.

Chestnut street has more of a homeless problem than I'd like but that will be hard to avoid in general, has not been a problem for me personally.
Couldn't be better. Walk to my favorite restaurants and bars in less than 5minutes. Walk to my gyms/work out studios in as little as 4 min. 1.5 blocks away from bus stop and Septa trolley. Trader Joes down the block as is Rite Aid, CVS, multiple take-out restaurants. Can walk to work in 20 mins. Many residents live nearby-social hub.
Referenced this in my other section. But really solid. Nice to be between university city and center city; good bar/restaurant scene! I selected driving for how I get to school bc the others didn't apply. There's a shuttle that will take you to school! :)
I was looking for a more authentic Philly experience outside of the heavily commercialized Rittenhouse Square area. Fitler Square is one of the most charming and beautiful neighborhoods in Philly. Amazing location next to a Starbucks, grocery store, bars, and many other amenities. So happy to be here. Love this neighborhood
Our neighbors have been quiet, lots of people with pets and young families. The neighborhood is pretty calm, cars are fairly rare and it’s very walkable. There’s a grocery store about 3 blocks away, which is great, and there are a lot of trees, which is always nice.
Equidistant from huntsman hall and from rittenhouse square bars and restaurants. You won’t be late for anything. Literally 3 minutes walk from 2401 Walnut and 5 minutes walk from Philadelphia 30th street station. Close to bus stops as well.
Love this location. Everything we want is close by - a quick 25 min walk to campus, 2401 is literally minutes away, Rittenhouse Square is very easy to get to, right on the river, plus Trader Joe's.
