Very Happy with the Griffin

I love it here. Awesome location, high end amenities, incredible views, and friendly young professional neighbors. While the Griffin isn't cheap, it's still a much better deal than comparable options near Rittenhouse and the Midtown Village neighborhood has a lot more going on. Highly recommend!

Outstanding place to live

While most Wharton students stay west of Broad, I'm thrilled that I looked beyond the typical Rittenhouse Square buildings. The Griffin, on the corner of Broad and Chestnut, is a brand new building that has amazing amenities and is part of a very lively neighborhood. The building itself is well managed and typically if there are any issues they are resolved quickly. The two bedroom floorplans are actually quite spacious, though they can be a little lacking in sunlight. The Griffin also has the nicest apartment gym I've ever seen. The free weights go above 50 lbs, there is a fully functional yoga room, and the machines are functional enough that I've been able to actually replace my gym membership. The rooftop is one of the nicest views in Philadelphia and it's actually pretty active on weekends. It's a great space to grab a few drinks with friends or host a larger group for a party. Lastly, being right on Broad and Chestnut makes the Griffin very public transit accessible. I'm able to take the MFL right to campus, and can pretty mcuh get to any part of downtown Philadelphia within a 15 minute commute.

Highly Recommend

I very much enjoy living at The Griffin as this is my second year living there. They provide exceptional amenities. The apartment homes are very modern and provide a great environment. The property management could be a bit more helpful but besides that I highly recommend it.

Very nice experience

Love the neighborhood, the building, the management and the amenities. Building is brand new - renovated (I am the first tenant of my apartment). In the Top Tier of best buildings in the city and at better price (and this without considering we got two free rent - months - unsure if this offer is still valid or was a first year promotion thing). The Rooftop is first in class. Amazing view of the city hall and the center city and great amenities - everything you could wish for. Perfect for hosting dinners. And having a golf simulator is great. Management is very nice and professional. The 2 bedroom - 2 bath is awesome - beautiful, big and luminous. Other appartments are also great but only issue is they have less light. Distance from campus is 30-35 minutes walk but the 15th St Trolley takes you to Campus in less than 12-15min door to door. Also best restaurant scene in Philly (13th st).

Great Apartment/Building

Beautiful roof deck with indoor area to lounge and play games. There’s almost always room to find a spot. Apartment itself is spacious and clean. Gym is awesome and has everything you need for a good workout. Front desk staff very friendly and leasing staff is very friendly and easily accessible.

Very Happy New Tenants

Been living at the Griffin for a few months now, and the whole building is 5 stars!
First ones to live in the unit, so everything was perfect. Brand new appliances.
Maintenance requests have been handled seamlessly.
Amenities are great and well kept.
Property staff are amazing at their jobs!
Only drawback is lack of parking space or partnership with a local lot.

Perfect Apartment

Modern design, great amenities, unbeatable location, very accessible and responsive staff, building-sponsored events. Fellow residents are friendly and concierge is very helpful. I've lived in a few buildings. This is the first one that really feels like a community.

Midtown Village Reviews

75 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!
Midtown Village is a fast-growing and both has great mainstay restaurants like El Vez and Barbuzzo as well as amazing chains like Chipotle and Sweet Green. The addition of a Target, Wawa, CVS, Starbucks, and Petco makes it even more accessible and naturally the location is as central as you can be in Philadelphia. In comparing options, you usually can get a bit of a discount versus Rittenhouse Square and Old City, mainly because the Midtown Village brand is still being built up, but you really can't beat the location and access to amenities. The only thing it's missing is a full-service grocery store, but between Reading Terminal Market, Target, Walgreens, and CVS you're pretty set. The main downside can be the noise and litter that comes with being in the heart of downtown, but it's a trade off I'm more than willing to make and has been getting better with time.
I love this neighborhood! It's very lively and great for young adults. There are a lot of cool restaurants/bars around. It's a little pricey but what can you expect from being in the center of a city like Philadelphia?
The area is filled with lots of young people. I don't feel unsafe walking around even at night because there are people out all the time. There are a couple of narrow streets I probably wouldn't walk through though.
The neighborhood is amazing and getting better every day! It combines access to great daily conveniences (coffee shops, Target, Wawa, etc.) with some of the best independent restaurants and bars in Philly. The location is incredibly central overall and transit options can get you pretty much anywhere in the city. It can get a bit noisy, though that's the price you pay for being downtown.
The location for The Collins could not be better. The Chestnut St. entrance is just a few feet from a brand new Target, and the Sansom St. entrance is directly across from two parking garages with monthly parking options. There are a ton of fantastic restaurants within a few blocks, and public transportation available at every street corner.
Right on Broad Street, so parking is tough but you're literally in the middle of the city.

Area comes with the usual urban lifestyle: lots of bars, restaurants, nightlife, but also lots of construction, traffic, and questionable characters on the streets
Great location, conveniently located to restaurants, bars - pretty much in the center of everything. Tons of young people and working professional in the area. Only downside would be that the closest major grocery store is about a 20 minute walk.
