Great Building

Location, Location, Location.

Close to jobs in Center City (and a shuttle bus to bring you there).

Several good bars and restaurants within a few blocks.

Right next to Fairmount Park/Boathouse row.

Giant Whole Foods opening just a few blocks away.

Ok, but pricey

The apartment is big and nice enough, but we've had intermittent problems with mice, and during the winter the heat is so high we have to open windows. Still, everything is very secure, and the staff are friendly. Sometimes you can hear neighbors through the walls, but that's true of almost anywhere.

Philadlephian

Nice apartment in a good area of town. Easy access to kelly drive and plenty of running paths. The building is old but not too bad, I like it a lot :) most days. There are lots of couples and families, though it's mostly young people. Quiet and parking is included

Quiet, Friendly, Great Location, Excellent Ammenities

Great condo complex. Extremely friendly staff with a professional attitude. Gym/Pool not included but reasonably priced. Great location and a private shuttle takes you in to center city when needed.
The average resident is a bit on the older side but there is a mix within, living here is pretty great.

Fairmount Reviews

21 reviews
Fairmount is an excellent area to live in. It is walking distance to the Schuylkill trail, great for biking to work, exercising or relaxing by the river. The area has great restaurants, easy-to-find parking and an excellent massive Whole Foods with 4 restaurants inside. It is also very easy to walk to downtown Philly (15-40 min walk for most of Center City and University City).
Pros: close-knit neighborhood where residents look out for each other and know each others' names, lots of families and students, low noise, walkable to Girard and Fairmount BSL stops, close to Fairmount Ave shops and restaurants, overall v. safe feel

Cons: be careful and use common sense walking around Girard and Broad at night - some blocks are sketchier than others
The Fairmount area is a great place to live. It is close to a lot of the city's attractions and art, and equally close to some great outdoor space. The neighborhood is generally pretty quiet, and parking is easier than in Center City. There are a lot of coffee shops, restaurants, and pubs within easy walking distance. There are a lot of neighborhood events, especially in the summer, that are great to attend. The major downfall (if you see it that way) is the city run events that happen at the art museum from time to time. These really close down the neighborhood and make parking and driving really hard. But, they are usually fun to attend or spectate.
I absolutely loves the location. Easy walk to work, good food options ranging from fine dining to late-night pizza to bars. It's close to a Whole Foods and a local family owned market called Kleins. Unfortunately, Fairmount is only assessable by bus. City Hall and 30th Street Station is a 30 minute walk away if you need to take the MFL or Regional Rail lines.
- close to whole foods
- close to amazing restaurants
- close walk into center city
- close enough to 2 train stations
- close to many bus routes
- close to many museums
- close to kelly drive and Fairmount park

- far from liquor stores
- far from nightlife/popular philly bars
Excellent, easily available restaurants, stores, and museums. Dogs love the park by the museum.
Lots of bars and restaurants, close to the river/park, fairly calm with tree lined streets (makes me forget I live in a big city sometimes). I like that I'm a bit removed from the craziness of Center City but still can get there easily if I want to (15-20 min walk, quick cab/subway ride).
A neighborhood feeling minutes walk away from center city. Larger apartments.
