Great value, beautiful apartment

I love this apartment and building! It's a little off the beaten path for most MBAs being a couple blocks away from the park, but it's an extremely convenient location to take the bus or the subway at 15/Market. The finishes in the apartment are beautiful - exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, washer/dryer in unit, dishwasher, new appliances, big kitchen island, great for entertaining. The building is quiet and neighbors are respectful. No pets allowed. Also, the price is a little lower than some of the other popular Wharton buildings - a 1br for sub-$2k. Highly recommend!

Wharton perspective on living at 15th and Pearl Properties

First, while 15th is as far east as most Wharton students will live, the additional 5-8 minutes of walking has had no impact on the ability to get to school in a timely manner or partake in social activities.

Second, Pearl Properties has been an absolute dream to have as a management company. Very responsive, very helpful, and very safety-oriented. The apartments have premium finishings and are well-cared for by Pearl. The nearby Pearl office will receive all your packages at no extra cost, so not having a doorman is not an issue.

Would choose to live here again. Would choose to live at a Pearl property again most definitely.

Great location and management company but somewhat expensive

Conveniently located on Walnut close to restaurants, stores and transportation, including bus to campus. Units are modern and equipped with new appliances that include dishwasher and washer and dryer in the unite. Building is nice and well-maintained; no bells or whistles. Elevator but no doorman or other added amenities. Management company is responsive with any maintenance issues and friendly.. Open bars/happy hours for tenants multiple times a year!

Large Jr 1 BR, with hard wood floors!

It's a large Jr 1 BR (which means studio, with a sliding door put in to separate the bedroom from the living area. Kitchen appliances seem to be all new. Bathroom is nice. 1 br closet and 1 living area closet. Price is a little high. If I could do it again, I'd live closer to campus (or more central Rittenhouse/2401) and probably with a roommate to enjoy more social aspects of being a student. Skylight is very cold in the winter. Hard wood floors are nice. No doorman. Elevator. Above a Chipotle, and down the street from a Qdoba/Starbucks.

Pretty good building if you don't mind the occassional street noise

Good location in terms of convenience. Near to bus stops and Rittenhouse square. Management company is decent and organized but the quality of maintenance is so so in my opinion (although many other apartments could be worse). Worst thing is that it is very loud at night sometimes because of the street noises and in the morning it is very very loud from the garbage trucks (very early in the morning almost everyday).

1512 Walnut has great "in-unit" amenities

The building is a mid-rise acros the street from Brooks Brothers and between The Gap and Chipotle. The building has exposed brick walls, (real) hardwood floors. There is an elevator and many of the apartments on the upper level have skylights. Every apartment has granite countertops, in-unit washer and dryer. My apartment also has a walk-in closet, but I am not sure if other apartments have that feature. The property manager is very responsive, as well as maintenance.

Convenient Building on Walnut St.

Nice building and very responsive management company. Each unit has washer/dryer and a full kitchen. It is conveniently located and the building was renovated in the last few years. Only issue is that there is street noise that can be disruptive.

Conveniently located building with cozy but well-equipped one-bedroom apartment and responsive management company. Overall a good value!

Overall, I'm a big fan of my residence and building! Plusses -- Good location. Close to bar, restaurants and shops on Walnut and Chestnut. East of most MBA students residents but still centrally located (3 blocks to Rittenhouse Sq Park) and convenient to bus stop for campus route -- Great building. Clean and well-kept with elevator. No doorman -- Great unit. New appliances. Apartment includes central air conditioning/heating, dishwasher and washer/dryer -- Great management. Pearl Properties is by far the best management company I've had in my 8 years of apartment living. They are extremely responsive and appreciate their members, even throwing tenants a happy hour with an open bar Minus -- My only knock is the noise level in the morning. Garbage trucks are extremely loud when they empty the dumpsters behind the building early in the AM

Rittenhouse Square 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.
