I've lived here for 5 years and have been mostly happy

2400 Chestnut St is conveniently located close to campus, 30th st station, and downtown festivities. It's also super easy to hop on the highway by car. The building also offers a free shuttle to campus on weekdays.

Most units are being renovated which has been pushing up the prices quite a bit. Had I been forced to move into a renovated unit, I would have moved out of the building (due to budgetary constraints). The new units are beaauttiiffullll, but for the new rent price, you can get better amenities in other buildings in the city (i.e. a nice gym, in unit laundry, etc.). Of note, the new building management is not as responsive as they used to be. For instance, I had flooding in my kitchen which was not addressed for multiple days. And the cable service has been disconnected in the building for a couple of months, though leasing agreements state that this amenity is included in the cost of rent.

Overall, however, I've had a good experience in the building. It's been a staple part of my Philly and medical school experience.

Good apt

Good location. Heating/AC uses a small eletric unit set into the wall. It is generally inefficient, which increases the electric bill and leaves something to be desired in terms of temperature control

Convenient location with good building management

I live in a newly renovated apartment with a river view (it's beautiful!). The building is old, but can't complain - everything functions just fine and my apartment itself feels and looks new. The building management is very responsive, they repair things quickly and the staff at front desk are friendly and help take and organize your packages. There's free laundry too (although shared on the floor with other tenants). I walk to and from school, it's a good brisk walk for me. I love living in Center City too and being walking distance away from lots of things in the city itself.

Most convenient apartment complex

It might not be the most elegant or upscale apartment complex, but is definitely the most convenient apartment in terms of distance to school and center city, free shuttle bus service, friendly management staff, etc

Nice building with great view

2400 Chestnut is an old building that is slowly upgrading its units. I live in a renovated unit that faces the river (the view is amazing).
I love this building, the rent is cheap and has a great location, close to campus and a free shuttle. Also, the staff is super friendly and helpful.

Since my unit is new I haven't experience any maintenance problem. The elevator is surprisingly fast compare to newer buildings in Center City. The gym is small and a little old but is enough to get a basic work out session.

I'm a fan

I have very positive feelings about this place. The best part is the shuttle in the morning. It drops you off within 45 seconds of the law school. In the winter I don't wear my coat in the van and often don't bother putting it on between the van drop-off and the law school.

The facilities aren't flashy, but are more than sufficient...they spent on the lobby and are renovating apartments gradually, but I'm not in one of the renovated ones. Still definitely meets my needs.

The maintenance staff is super responsive and requests are attended to, in my experience, within 48 hrs.

Location is fantastic!! It's right between University City and Center City, which means that you are proximate to school activities at Penn and also proximate to social activities downtown. You're 5 blocks from target, 3 blocks from Trader Joe's, dry cleaner in the basement, 1 block from Rite Aid, and 3 blocks from a liquor store. There are also a number of bars and restaurants within 5-10 minute walk!!

Security is pretty solid. There's a fob for the elevators; desk guys in the lobby 24/7 who recognize most residents, call you if you have a visitor, and let them up for you. Very convenient. Similar protocol if you order food...hold delivery at the desk and call you for pick-up.

The gym is fine, but if you have high standards/needs, then it may underwhelm.

I'm on the 2nd floor, which means a quick elevator ride, but my friends on the 32nd and 33rd floor, who spend longer in the elevator, have the most gorgeous views in the mornings and evenings!

That's all I can think of.

Solid option for any Penn grad student

This is a fantastic building with tons of space, a decent workout room, a dry cleaner on the bottom floor, a 24/7 front desk that receives packages, and a frequently running shuttle to campus. It's safe and easy to walk to from just about anywhere in Center City or University City. The downside is the price, but I got a discount on an overly large unit for me since it was the only one on its floor that hadn't been refurbished in the past 2 years. This building always has a long list of people looking to fill apartments, and a huge percentage of the tenants are Penn grad/med/law students and early professionals.

Fitler Square Reviews

The neighborhood is perfect for my needs. I am 1 block from the Schulykill park (and the running/biking trail) (and dog park, basketball courts, tennis courts). I'm also half a block from Fitler Square. I am about 7 minutes via bike from CHOP and on closer to my clinic site than the hospital. I'm north of South Street so closer to the action and very close to the gym. Also Delancey is a very good looking street.
Wharton bubble. I love it. Decent restaurants-- not as many fast+healthy+good-value meal options nearby as I'd like but many nice places. Nightlife is what Wharton makes it. Easy walk to some cool stuff in town.

Chestnut street has more of a homeless problem than I'd like but that will be hard to avoid in general, has not been a problem for me personally.
Couldn't be better. Walk to my favorite restaurants and bars in less than 5minutes. Walk to my gyms/work out studios in as little as 4 min. 1.5 blocks away from bus stop and Septa trolley. Trader Joes down the block as is Rite Aid, CVS, multiple take-out restaurants. Can walk to work in 20 mins. Many residents live nearby-social hub.
Referenced this in my other section. But really solid. Nice to be between university city and center city; good bar/restaurant scene! I selected driving for how I get to school bc the others didn't apply. There's a shuttle that will take you to school! :)
I was looking for a more authentic Philly experience outside of the heavily commercialized Rittenhouse Square area. Fitler Square is one of the most charming and beautiful neighborhoods in Philly. Amazing location next to a Starbucks, grocery store, bars, and many other amenities. So happy to be here. Love this neighborhood
Our neighbors have been quiet, lots of people with pets and young families. The neighborhood is pretty calm, cars are fairly rare and it’s very walkable. There’s a grocery store about 3 blocks away, which is great, and there are a lot of trees, which is always nice.
Equidistant from huntsman hall and from rittenhouse square bars and restaurants. You won’t be late for anything. Literally 3 minutes walk from 2401 Walnut and 5 minutes walk from Philadelphia 30th street station. Close to bus stops as well.
Love this location. Everything we want is close by - a quick 25 min walk to campus, 2401 is literally minutes away, Rittenhouse Square is very easy to get to, right on the river, plus Trader Joe's.
