So happy we live here!

Part of our criteria for choosing an apartment in Philadelphia was a new building with full amenities, gas stove (not electric), plenty of space/storage, good location, and a front desk attendant for packages. I couldn't be more satisfied with all of the above. If anything breaks or goes wrong, Pearl Properties is VERY responsive and will be there within 24 hours. The building was remodeled in 2015 so we are the second people to live in it. The closet is enormous, and we have a bunch of storage. Not to mention, there's a nice wine rack above the fridge for storage! The gym isn't HUGE, but it's very nice and clean and has pretty much everything you need. There is also a very large studio area where there are bikes for spinning and an open space for any other activities. The common area is beautiful and clean with various spaces for different activities. Theres a large kitchen area with a pool table and couches that you can rent out, or there's a movie room that you don't need to reserve. I looked at many different apartments with similar amenities in the area and 1700 was definitely the best bang for our buck. We are also in a great location, we sold our car before moving to Philadelphia and I have never felt like I need a car. We can walk to trader joes or uber anywhere we need to go. Target is 2 blocks away, there are CVSs and Rite Aids all around and plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance as well! You can walk to the train station or take a 5 minute cab ride.

Brand new but issues with common area and noise

We were the first tenants in our unit and it is beautiful! Very nicely done with great high end finishes. The kitchen is very large with lots of storage. The corner of 17th and Chestnut is a great location, very close to many bars and restaurants, however, there is also a lot of traffic on that corner and it can be very loud from cars honking. Our bedroom does not have any windows so the noise is not a problem in our bedroom. Additionally, the common area is gorgeous but the process to reserve and use it decreases our likeliness us to utilize it as much as we would like.

Pretty great, except for a few things

Pros: Attentive management company, very nice common areas (though shared with separate building across the street), nice apartments, accept packages and dry cleaning on our behalf, close to 21 and 42 buses, close to restaurants and bars

Cons: Lots of street noise, unclear use policies for common space, two separate buildings share access to common space (mine and the building across the street), slightly difficult for people to find due to misleading name

Very satisfied with this apartment!

A friend recommended the building to us. Pearl Properties (the management) is VERY responsive. Taking out the trash/recycling is very easy, and the common space is great. Many students live here but not too many (it doesn't feel like a dorm), Our unit has a dishwasher, washer/dryer, gas stove and wine rack. Bedroom fits a king-size bed easily. The closet is huge. The bathroom has his and hers sinks. Air conditioning and heater work great and our utilities bill isn't very high each month. Hard wood floors. The location of the building is very centrally located- we are able to walk to anything we need. Overall, great value for money. The building has a gym with some cardio equipment, weight machines, and dumbbells up to 75 lbs.

Great building

Pros: Really nice building, relatively new. The common spaces are great and include gym, yoga studio, movie room, and work spaces. The management is very helpful for things like maintenance requests. The rent (from what I've heard) is less that other buildings with equally or less nice space.

Cons: 17th is a little further from 2401 and campus, so getting to common work areas can take 5-10 min longer

Nice Apartments

Layout of my studio is a little odd, but closet is huge, and all appliances are new (I'm the first resident). There have been a few hiccups with thins like the fire alarm going off at random times, but after a few months of the building being open, I haven't experienced any more issues.

Rittenhouse Square Reviews

155 reviews
I moved to Philly from Manhattan, and Rittenhouse Square feels like a dream. I have all of the amazing charm, food, shopping and culture that I would find in the best NYC neighborhoods with the accessible, quieter, friendlier feel of a smaller city. And there are a handful of parks within walking distance. We live in a brownstone on Spruce St. which helps give that comparatively suburban feel – not sure if it's the same in some of the high rises.
We love living in Center City! There is always something going on - parties, festivals, etc.

Pros: grocery stores within walking distance; very close to several buses and subway stations, as well as the railroad (Suburban station).

Cons: it can get loud but if your windows aren't facing the front of the building, you are fine :)
The Rittenhouse Square neighborhood is extremely safe. Most of the apartment buildings in the area are staffed with doormen to keep an eye on things especially at night. Though Rittenhouse Market is the closer grocery store, many opt to shop at the more affordable Trader Joe's that is located about 10 minutes away by foot. There is a good amount of construction being done in the area currently, so low floors in apartment complexes can be a little noisy, but this is not a constant problem.
central location with tons and restaurants and bars and close to rittenhouse square park. It is one of the safest areas in the city. downside is that there are not any super close grocery stores, and it can be noisy if you are on a lower floor, or if you are north or east facing (especially when the bars close)
There are tons of restaurants and bars in the area; 13th street is bumping. It's a short walk to the Italian market in south philly, Suburban and Jefferson SEPTA stations are just 12 minute walks, the Patco line runs right through the neighborhood. Tons of young people and students make the area a really great place to live!
Close to both University City and Center City campuses for Drexel. Subway and SEPTA bus stops, plus Drexel bus and the PHLASH (tourist bus). LOTS of construction at the moment, which is irritating at times. Logan Fountain is the place to be during the summer. Short walk to Trader Joe's during the winter when you're snowed in. Also able to walk to Reading Terminal Market (20 minutes), Chinatown (25 minutes), Old City and Penn's Landing (30-40 minutes). Honestly, I love the location and I love all the museums. I spend most of my time at them because I love them and they're so close. Millions of places to eat.
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.
