Centralized Location Well Kept Property With Great Management

The good: This apartment building is fairly new, the apartments are super nice and it seems like it was well constructed with better sound proofing than I've had in previous large complexes. The concierge service here is generally fantastic, they even came up to feed my cat one day when I was on 28 hour call and completely forget to feed her in the morning. Maintenance has been very responsive though I haven't had a lot of things go wrong. Management has also been responsive to concerns. I had some issues with a loud neighbor and this was addressed promptly. Unlike some places, the package pick up service in parcel lockers is included, which is nice. The gym is fairly large with a little outdoor terrace, I feel no need to buy a gym membership elsewhere. There are also really nice common areas on the 2nd floor and a rooftop deck that gives great views of the Delaware river. The location is fantastic, a bit far from Penn but literally in the middle of everything else (restaurants, bars, close to the shopping district, theater district, old city, Reading terminal, the Italian Market, grocery stores). It's about a 35 minute brisk walk to Penn's campus or a 10 minute bike ride. Bus lines also stop right outside (42 and 21) and you could technically get to the subway/trolley pretty easily. Also, bike parking is included and secure in the basement!

The bad: Lots of people here have dogs, which provides for great dog watching entertainment however there have been multiple times where I've stepped in dog pee or nearly stepped in dog poop because some residents apparently do not clean up after their pets. If you pick a north facing apartment, beware, since you'll be facing Fergies which over the summer was VERY loud despite excellent window sound proofing (I live in a west facing apartment and definitely would not not consider moving to a unit any further north because of the bars). I will say this place is pretty expensive for what you get, likely due to the premium location. Storage within apartments is limited though there is storage in the basement if you pay extra. Parking is nearby is VERY expensive. Also, there are in unit washer/dryers but the dryer doesn't work particularly well (washer is perfect), I think because it's not vented to the outside so it's a struggle to get my clothes completely dry (an even bigger struggle with sheets and towels). I had management look at this and was told "this is how it is".

In Summary: Overall I love it here but might be driven to move somewhere else to find more space for the price I'm paying here.

Highly Recommend!

I literally love living in this building! The management is amazing. I haven't had a single issue with them. The building is very well maintained, the staff is super nice, and its a very secure building. It's a few blocks out of the "Wharton bubble" but literally right near where everyone goes to go out or have social events. There are four bus options right outside and the trolley is about two blocks away. Wharton students can literally take a straight shot to class.

I absolutely love living at 1213 Walnut. The facilities are meticulously maintained, the staff is friendly and welcoming, and the amenities are beautiful. Plus, the proximity to Jefferson cannot be beat!

Great place to live

Great management with a lot of Jefferson discounts and credits. Maintenance is quick and efficient. Great neighbors and close to the hospital. Central to most of center city.

1213 Walnut

I love 1213 Walnut. The amenities are amazing and management is extremely involved and receptive. Whenever there is an issue, they take care of it. They have really thought of everything here and they work hard to make our experience better each day. They also do a lot of fun community happy hours and events! The building is also extremely pet friendly and a lot of tenants have dogs.

Midtown Village Reviews

12th and chestnut is about the busiest part of center city you’ll find. Always something going on. Very close to many good restaurants and a few gyms. A block away from Jefferson and 3 blocks from Trader Joe’s.
It’s center city. People will scream and honk their horns all day and night relentlessly so it’s irritating but it’s overall a good place to live. People say it’s so dangerous here, and it’s honestly just as dangerous as pretty much anywhere else. Be aware of yourself and your surroundings at all times, and it’s always good to travel with a friend. It’s also very dirty here, and the air is very poor quality. And there are a LOT of bars around here so when you’re walking at night, the sidewalks are literally filled with drunk people and it’s quite annoying to have to push through them all the time because they don’t move when you say excuse me.
Lots of great restaurants, bars, gyms, pretty much anything you could want they have.
Very fun and conveniently located but too loud at night
Great neighborhood that keeps on getting better. Lots of new restaurants have been added over the last year, and we have several great grocery options (i.e. Target, Mom's Organic, and if you want to walk a bit further, Whole Foods). It's easy to walk anywhere in Center City, and if you need to get a bit further, there are several public transit options nearby (Jefferson Station, Suburban, Broad Street Line, Market Frankford line).
Wonderful vibrant neighborhood that is also affordable especially relative to nearby options like Rittenhouse Square or Old City. Constantly has tons of new fast casual and fine dining restaurants offering a wide variety of price options. Between the Target, Mom's, and Reading Terminal, there are plenty of options for groceries/necessities that weren't there a few years back. Public transit is great - you can get across town easily by bus or train. If you need to get to NYC or somewhere on regional rail, Jefferson Station and Greyhound are right there as well. I'd strongly recommend Midtown Village if you're moving to Philly!
Best neighborhood in Philly - lots of amazing restaurants (i.e. Lolita, Zavino, Barbuzzo, Xiandu Thai, Masala Kitchen), several grocery options (i.e. Reading Terminal, Mom's Organic, Target, Everything Fresh), and multiple gym options nearby, easily public transit access, and you can walk to everything.

This area of Philly has become much nicer over the last few years, and with the 1213 Walnut building completed, the W Hotel wrapping up and The Ludlow apartments (i.e. Market East) being completed, I expect continued improvements over the next few years. If you are new to Philly, this is definitely the place to be!
Griffin is my first home here in Philly and I think was the perfect choice for me. I always feel safe, have a short walk to the Jefferson Station daily for work, can grab anything i need quickly from the Walgreens across the street, walk down Sansom for a quick bite to eat or 13th street for something a bit more sit-down. Mid-town in my experience over the past year is definitely a more residential, but still happening neighborhood of Philly -- and you get all the benefits mentioned out of the Griffin building. Thanks VeryApt for helping me settle in so smoothly into a new city !
