Easy Peasy

This apartment is pretty great. I have three roommates, there are four of us total making rent, utilities, and groceries pretty affordable. The whole process of moving in was easy and smooth moving. I haven’t had any major problems, and anything that I do have a problem with can be fixed with a trip to the leasing office in the second floor. It’s also a pretty commute to the school.

Well Kept Apartment

The Comminwealth is located in a great neighborhood with a booming social life. Close to Readin Terminal Market and the newly built Target. Management is I believe better than average and the security officers extremely courteous. The 1 bedroom which I reside in is more than spacious enough for my needs. While the kitchen is modern, it lacks counter space which can be problematic.

Midtown Village Reviews

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!
This is such a vibrant neighborhood. Mom's Organic Market is next door with the best selection of organic groceries. Across the street is Honey Grow and Luke's Lobster and Rosa's Fresh Pizza for quick, delicious dining options!! New restaurants and shops are being built - it is wonderful!
Midtown Village is my favorite neighborhood in Philadelphia. There is a fantastic selection of restaurants and nightlife, but you're also right in the middle of any other area you'd like to access - like Rittenhouse Square or Old city - which you can walk to in under 20 minutes.
It's center-city: safe and expensive, but incredibly walkable and there's ample modes of public transportation nearby. There are great restaurants to try out, as well as a convenient (albeit expensive) parking garage directly opposite to the apartment.
This is a great place to live. There are tons of interesting bars and restaurants but it's not as expensive as Rittenhouse square (which is only a short walk away). Plus, you're close to the attractions near Old City, also just a quick walk.
The neighborhood is busy but fun for younger residents especially. It’s right in the middle of Center city, close to city hall with lots of things to do and see. Pretty much everything is within walking distance.
