Spacious, convenient and quiet

I love living here! I have a 750 sq ft 1 bed 1 bath corner unit in a central location. The building is mainly young professionals / non-Wharton so it doesn’t feel like a dorm. Elevator building with laundry and trash in the basement level - not a luxury condo but you get a much better price and space as compared to other building nearby.

Great apartment - lots of light, large, high value

These are all individually owned apartments so your apartment will vary. But generally great value apartment - tons of sunlight if you get a corner unit. Units are super spacious as well. Building is relatively no frills (e.g., no gym, etc.) and quiet (wall are super thick and you can't hear anything between apartments). Overall great apartment!

Quiet building with great location

The Chestnut View condos are in a great location - close to the bars/restaurants of Center City. The building itself is ok - no doorman or amenities to speak of. There was an issue with one of the two elevators being out awhile ago, but that may be fixed now.

Overall, solid choice and good value for the neighborhood. Definitely recommend for a couple, or someone living alone who doesn't want a building with a very social atmosphere.

Good value 1 bedroom

This apartment is great for one person if you dont doesn't want to live in a studio. The building doesn't have any amenities or a doorman, but packages are left inside and safe. The Windows let in nice natural light. The best part is the location. Close to trader joes, the trolley, walnut street buses, and many restaurants.

Quiet and nice but few additional amenities

This is a condo building without a doorman but that hasn't been an issue. I have been able to receive packages without any issues.
The only thing is that the building doesn't have a gym or a communal lounge area. There is laundry and dryers in the building that are usually available.
Overall, if you like your own space in a quiet building then this is the place for you. However if you prefer to live in a communal building with other Wharton kids then it's probably not a great fit.

Solid condo units

This is a condo building with 8 floors and 4 units per floor so it's a fairly quiet building. My unit is relatively medium in size, but perfect for one person. My unit has new appliances and finishings, but given that it's a condo, all units will vary in size and amenities.

Rittenhouse Square Reviews

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.
Rittenhouse Sq is the hub of Wharton social activity, but consider where in the neighborhood you are - east side has more shops/restaurants but is farther from campus, grocery stores seem to be mostly NW of the square, SW is probably the quietest. South side (and anywhere away from the square) tends to be cheaper, quieter, more residential.
Safety: With the exception of Wendy's on Chestnut Street, Rittenhouse Sq (near City Hall) feels pretty safe (I used to live near Oakland, CA so gauge your level). In other words, I never feel unsafe walking back home at 2-3AM as there is always considerable foot traffic on Chestnut St.
Really lovely neighborhood. Everything you could want is a short walk away. The dog park by the river is great.

You can save money and have a similar experience by moving towards Spruce and Pine St.
Living in Rittenhouse Square you are right in the middle of everything. It's a 20-30 minute walk to Penn but also an easy bus ride on the 21/42 (two of the more reliable SEPTA lines). It can be a little noisy and crowded but it is also incredibly safe and one of the only parts of the city where I feel totally comfortable at any time of night. Likewise it is more commercial and just less "charming" than living in a neighborhood like Fitler Square.
We are a few blocks away from Rittenhouse Square itself, right across the street from City Hall. The only complaint is that the street noise can be very noisy even on the 15th floor. Otherwise it has been great to be so central in the city to everything and for my student, so close to the trolley station at City Hall that runs him right to campus in 10-15mins.
Rittenhouse is the premier location in the city of Philadelphia. Great restaurants, bars, shopping, and a beautiful park in the center of Philadelphia. It is an easy walk to the law school, and there are buses, taxis, and uber if you don't want to walk. It's nice to get away from campus at the end of the day to an exciting but not terribly noisy environment. Also a ton of law school students live in the area, and many of the bar review bars are around here.
Pros: There are many great places to eat / drink in Rittenhouse. I think the area is overall pretty safe.

Cons: 1) there are a lot of homeless people around the area. You can't leave your apartment without being asked for money several times. 2) there is no grocery store very close. Best options are Trader Joes and Whole Foods, but both are a decent walk.
