Great responsive management in a new building at a great location

Overall, a great experience primarily because the management is very responsive and helpful, even with helping during COVID times. The building is also new (2013 I believe?), so all the appliances and cabinets are generally newer than what you see in some of the buildings around rittenhouse park. It is also very close to the septa station trolley. Door to door (from apartment to huntsman entrance) has averaged around 18 minutes. CVS and staples just across the street, sansom restaurants a couple of blocks away, and right near city hall. Great location overall!

Cons:

Can get noisy as it is a busy street (though not debilitatingly so for me, but I am not a light sleeper), and there is no outdoor rooftop, just an indoor penthouse lounge. Windows are also not the most expansive, so sunlight can be a little less than some other buildings, but again, the pros made up for it.

Love it here

Management is great, apartment is newly renovated and very comfortable, location is 10/10. Even the smallest of studios is comfortable enough and, even though my windows face a wall, I somehow still get plenty of sunlight! My only complaint is that the windows don't have nets (when I asked about having some installed, I was told the windows are not compatible with nets) and, even if you don't mind opening them without them having netting, be prepared to be able to smell the fast food restaurants nearby. As someone who really likes to open windows for fresh air, this has been a major downside. However, I still rate this apartment very very highly and have been very happy here!

Great Building, Management, and Location

I've really enjoyed living here. The location is excellent, the gym and work spaces are all you could ask for, and the apartments are very nice! The only downside is noise levels. It sometimes seems as though you are on the street with the level of traffic noises in my apartment, and I am on upper floor. With that being said, a noise machine has done wonders, and if you can live with a little bit extra noise, I highly recommend.

Central location

The building is well-maintained, clean and secure overall, and my apartment is spacious. The street noise in combination with the construction noise across the street have made it difficult to sleep at times. The apartment is a fifteen-minute bike ride to HUP and a ten-minute subway ride to PPMC, so the central location is extremely convenient. There's a door person who accepts packages and lets in guests, a bike room in the basement, a gym on the top floor and a party room available to rent. I feel like I'm getting a good value, and I'm happy with my experience over the past three years.

Avenir

Avenir is great. I had mediocre experiences my first couple of years with housing, but I am very happy in this complex I have lived in since August 2018. Management is great, there are new appliances, and it's located in a very central location. It is a 30 minute walk to school, but I enjoy the exercise, and the metro station is only a block away if the weather is inclement. The apartments are small and a bit pricy, but it is safe, there is 24 hour security, a sprinkler system, and if you watch the prices, you are generally able to apply to rent a space at a comparable price. The flats are also great because, though they are small, they have a ton of built in storage, so no need to invest in many furnishings. Also the building is very quiet. The people who live here are mostly young professionals, so if you prefer to study away from campus, there is no problem doing so here.

Worth the Price

Avenir is a great apartment complex, definitely pricy, but worth it.

Rittenhouse Square Reviews

402 reviews
I like living in Center City a lot. I tried living in University City my first year of law school, but I found it was more stressful being closer to campus. I like the walk everyday and it's great being downtown for bar review and other social events. Most upper level students also live downtown, so it is easier to connect with your peers. Also a target and CVS very close by, so it is very convenient if you need to pick up groceries, or want to take a break and head out shopping etc. If you like a social atmosphere and one where you can distance yourself a bit from the college experience and integrate with young professionals in Philadelphia, Center City is a great place to be.
Most people who live here have well paying jobs or are retired. We see a ton of dogs every day. The streets are maintained well (holla at that snow n ice removal) and we are right in the middle of everything - restaurants, stores, cafes, clothing, you name it.
Mostly everything you'll need:

-Great restaurants (mostly a bit pricier)
-Target usually is out of stock of needed groceries. Rittenhouse Market is pricey. TJ's is too far. PrimeNow works well though! -Transit to campus is marginally more difficult
Lots of traffic noise and little street parking, BUT so close to the park, amazing bars/restaurants/stores/coffee shops. Rittenhouse farmers' market, Schuylkill running trail, PATCO is right there . . . love it.
The neighborhood is safe, right in center city. The building is located on Walnut street though which means that there is a decent amount of noise in the apartments that are facing that street.
Right in the middle of Rittenhouse square. Very close to most other popular Wharton buildings and easy commute to school, whether you are walking, using the SEPTA, or catching a ride.
Tons of restaurants, bars, shopping, and exercise classes within walking distance. Many other medical students live in this area as well so it's a great area to be based.
Very nice. A bit expensive—few full grocery stores. Walkable, restaurants, green park, and shopping. Busy on weekends and Friday, Saturday, & Sunday PM.
