Poorly Managed

The building is very poorly managed, packages can only be picked up between 9 AM and 5 PM, Monday through Friday. Since most normal adults work those hours it's pretty inconvenient. When we were getting wedding gifts the building threatened to send them back because we were not picking them up frequently enough.

The elevators are constantly out, usually for extended periods of time. The garbage men block the garage exit so if you have to leave for work at the same time that they're picking up the trash your SOL, this is poor planning on managements part.

Water and Electricity are included, which is nice, but since the water heater for the building is shared the temperature in your shower changes any time anyone in the building turns their sink on or off or flushes. It makes showering rather unpleasant.

They will enter your unit without prior warning and frankly we cannot wait to move out.

Beautiful Apartment

I recently moved to the Metropolitan Bala. The office and maintenance staff has been helpful during and after the moving process. The apartment itself is beautiful and has a lovely updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a subway tile backsplash.

Beyond Satisfied!

The staff is extremely friendly and prompt at resolving any issues, 1BD apartments are very spacious with lots of light, everything was new when I moved in (new paint, carpet, bathroom cabinet), safe area, close to public transportation, grocery store, Chilis, Target, Starbucks. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Close to Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Med (PCOM)

This apartment complex is very close to PCOM, within walking distance, and full of PCOM students and people of all ages. Very quiet and very large for the price. Gas is not included but is very low in the summer. A gym membership is included and open 24/7.
