Happy Home

My wife and I enjoy the Lofts quite a bit. The huge loft ceilings allow for enormous windows and sunlight that just pours in during the day (our windows face eastward). The front desk staff is extremely helpful and the building security is strong. There has been some drama with the Condo board around various improvements and expenses, but I assume that's the case at most buildings. I also suspect that many units have been purchased as second homes or investment properties so they sit vacant much of the time. The number of people I see day-to-day is far lower than I would expect for a building with this many units. That is actually great for taking advantage of shared resources, though -- the gym is always pretty empty and the shared community room is always available.

About Bella Vista

This is 'South Philly' living at its finest with nationally known cheesesteak founders Pat's and Geno's located nearby. In terms of feel, Bella Vista is much quieter and more residential than Center City but does not offer the same type of nightlife options.

Bella Vista Reviews

I love Bella Vista and have lived in two buildings in the area. Parts of the neighborhood can feel unsafe at night, but it changes every few blocks. There are a lot of restaurants in the area, and I like that it's close to both Center City and East Passyunk, so there are lots of options of things to do. It's a quieter neighborhood that Center City, with mostly families and young people in townhouses/brownstones, rather than high rises.
Pros: quiet; clean; safe; quiet; many nearby grocery stores, restaurants, etc; close to the homiest part of South Street- grocery stores, banks, restaurants, coffee shops; very close to Broad Street Line

Cons: distance from campus
Fantastic walkability to great items in the Avenue of the Arts, Broad Street, Washington Square west area.
Amazing neighborhood, near Italian market, East Passyunk, & Center City. Close to 40 Bus to get to Penn, and walking distance from Pennsylvania Hosp.
Bella Vista is a family-friendly neighborhood, often described as a “tourist neighborhood” by locals, as it is situated between South Street and the Italian Market. It is full of murals, mosaics, and activities. It is a very safe neighborhood full of friendly people who look out for each other & include neighbors in events. It is a half hour walk from Center City, but conveniently located public transportation give residents the ability to travel across the entire city.
Bella Vista offers a number of options for getting to the office depending on how late you're running. Ubers/cabs get you door-to-door in about 5 minutes, Indego bikes take about 12 mins, walking to the Ellsworth/Federal subway and taking the BSL takes about 20 minutes, and walking takes about 30 minutes.

The immediate neighborhood provides the best Vietnamese, Italian, and Mexican food in the city and it's about a 10 minute walk south to finer dining on Passyunk Ave.

I generally feel pretty safe in the area during the day, although Washington Ave itself can feel very big and dark at night. I've never had any issues or incidents, however.
Perfect balance of residential and peaceful with enough bars, restaurants, and shops nearby. Can't be beat.
close to work, safe area, not a lot of street noise, close to two grocery stores, far from downtown, good cost of living, not a lot of nearby shops.
