Solid spot

Easy access to patco (across the street), nice facility upstairs to study/swim/workout/tan on a nice day.

Expensive but nice and great service when repairs are needed. Typically fixed within the day.

Our apartment is large w/ a porch, animal friendly.

Overall, I like it here

The only bad things are the expense and the elevators. There are generally 3 working elevators for 45 floors, so they can get busy when people are leaving for work or returning home at the end of the day.

Amazing except the slow elevators

Amazing so far.

The only annoyance is how slow the elevators are. You could wait for up to 5 mins for the elevators to come. I have missed a couple of ubers/lyft because of the elevator waiting situation

Wonderful apartment building

Really great experience at 1500 Locust. The staff is super attentive and friendly. Maintenance is super fast with any issues (we haven't had many). The amenities cannot be beat!!! A little far from Wharton but the bus stop is one block away and a 10 minute ride. Great location right in the middle of the action.

Excellent apartment

I am very happy at 1500 Locust. Apartments are spacious and reasonably priced compared to other high-rises. Location is convenient to the 21/42/40 buses, SEPTA train, and is centrally located in the city. Building staff including doormen and maintenance are outstanding and highly responsive. Gym, pool/hot tub, rooftop, and lounge are all high quality. Only downsides are slow elevators at rush hour and rare but annoying fire alarms that are triggered by Fado downstairs. Overall this has been a great part of my experience in Philly and would highly recommend the apartment.

Great place to live

1500 Locust is a very well run apartment building with excellent amenities. The apartments are quiet and spacious with modern appliances. The only thing lacking is style -- they are in the process of renovating the apartments, but some are still carpeted with popcorn ceilings.

Solid Apartment Building

1500 Locust is a solid apartment building with recently renovated units. The building provides numerous amenities (gym, pool, roof deck, doorman, lounge) which only cost a small (<$100) one time fee. Location can’t get much better either.

Great location/ building has improvements

Great location, elevator is terrible and suddenly stops. Or sometimes they do not work creating long elevator times. They closed the roof to make improvements during summer months. Which people were very upset. Office Manager is not very helpful. Rent increases every year.

Rittenhouse Square Reviews

332 reviews
I love everything about living at 2116 chestnut, except for the rent. My apartment is new, updated, clean, floor to ceiling windows, large closets, has a doorman, and includes a great gym and amenity floor. It is a quick walk to work (~20 min from CHOP/Penn). The management is excellent, and fixes anything that breaks within a day. It is very quiet, I have never heard a peep from my neighbors or upstairs. My only gripe is the rent. My unit is a corner unit on a high floor with a balcony, so you could find a 1BR on a lower floor for a little bit cheaper.
Rittenhouse Sq is the hub of Wharton social activity, but consider where in the neighborhood you are - east side has more shops/restaurants but is farther from campus, grocery stores seem to be mostly NW of the square, SW is probably the quietest. South side (and anywhere away from the square) tends to be cheaper, quieter, more residential.
Safety: With the exception of Wendy's on Chestnut Street, Rittenhouse Sq (near City Hall) feels pretty safe (I used to live near Oakland, CA so gauge your level). In other words, I never feel unsafe walking back home at 2-3AM as there is always considerable foot traffic on Chestnut St.
Really lovely neighborhood. Everything you could want is a short walk away. The dog park by the river is great.

You can save money and have a similar experience by moving towards Spruce and Pine St.
Living in Rittenhouse Square you are right in the middle of everything. It's a 20-30 minute walk to Penn but also an easy bus ride on the 21/42 (two of the more reliable SEPTA lines). It can be a little noisy and crowded but it is also incredibly safe and one of the only parts of the city where I feel totally comfortable at any time of night. Likewise it is more commercial and just less "charming" than living in a neighborhood like Fitler Square.
We are a few blocks away from Rittenhouse Square itself, right across the street from City Hall. The only complaint is that the street noise can be very noisy even on the 15th floor. Otherwise it has been great to be so central in the city to everything and for my student, so close to the trolley station at City Hall that runs him right to campus in 10-15mins.
Rittenhouse is the premier location in the city of Philadelphia. Great restaurants, bars, shopping, and a beautiful park in the center of Philadelphia. It is an easy walk to the law school, and there are buses, taxis, and uber if you don't want to walk. It's nice to get away from campus at the end of the day to an exciting but not terribly noisy environment. Also a ton of law school students live in the area, and many of the bar review bars are around here.
Pros: There are many great places to eat / drink in Rittenhouse. I think the area is overall pretty safe.

Cons: 1) there are a lot of homeless people around the area. You can't leave your apartment without being asked for money several times. 2) there is no grocery store very close. Best options are Trader Joes and Whole Foods, but both are a decent walk.
