Good building, average to poor management

I love my apartment in this building- it's large, well set up, gets tons of natural light, and has a small balcony. The building has 3 main elevators and a service elevator you can use when moving in, which was extremely helpful.

One thing many people might dislike about it is that the walls to the street/windows do not block out much sound at all. I can frequently hear activity or drunk people shouting on the street at night on weekends. However, since I'm a heavy sleeper and am used to noise, having lived in NYC, this doesn't bother me much.

The property management corporation is also annoying to work with. They have fixed most minor repairs I've needed in a fairly timely manner, but I have consistent issues with their package service. Even though the building has a door woman 12pm-8pm ("security") our packages are delivered to Adelphia house (chestnut b/w 13th and 12th), and I have had issues tracking down several packages that claim to have been delivered but that I never received . Sometimes, if I ask to check in their package room though, I will find the package there and mis-labled in their logbook as a different apartment. It's a frustrating system and one their management doesn't seem to care about changing.

The apartment is near a lot of fun bars and restaurants too, and it usually feels very safe walking back at night because there are lots of people out late- although this comes with the caveat that sometimes drunk people walking along your path home are very annoying (but this is restricted to Friday/Saturday)

All of this being said, though, my apartment is extremely large, comfortable, clean, and nice. There is also laundry on every floor, which is very convenient. The things I listed aren't enough to make me want to move out of this lovely apartment, but they are things that should be kept in mind for anyone looking to live here.

Location + High Ceilings

Awesome location, surrounded byrhe best restaurants and bars in center city. Super close to transportation, bus top out front and Jefferson station is only a few blocks away. Only downfall is how loud it can be at nighttime. Love love the high celinngs, makes a two bedroom look and feel a lot bigger.

In the middle of it all

This apartment is perfect for roommates. The walls are thick and ceilings are high. The only con to this apartment is the outside noise. Since you are so close to the bars and street it is very loud at all times of the day. Other than that the location is amazing,

It's a good location but overpriced and bad management

I've lived here for a year and I cannot wait to move out. I've found places that are just as bad as this one for $300 less. The location is fine, but it's badly managed, dirty, and overpriced for that matter. I suppose if you don't care about your quality of living or are ok overpaying for crap, you could chose this one.

Really enjoyed living at 1300 Chestnut

Building is located at the corner of 13th and Chestnut, which is prime for social plans and access to restaurants and shopping. While the building isn't exceptionally new, the apartment within it is extremely spacious with wooden floors and a carpeted bedroom that fits a queen size bed. The apartment was great for hosting guests. The kitchen had a nice big island that opened into the living room. The biggest negative was that the monthly rent is fairly expensive and electricity and internet are not included. In my experience, management was always quick to respond to any maintenance issues. Overall great for a one-bedroom.

Midtown Village Reviews

94 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.
