Love my overall experience

Pros:
- Friendly doorman and timely maintenance
- Fully renovated building that looks like a historical hotel
- Great gym and pool that are always empty
- Perfect size and layout of studio
- Many Wharton students living close by

Cons:
- Lack of sunlight and small windows
- 2-in-1 washer & dyer won't dry your clothes fully
- Moving-in has lots of restrictions that need lots of re-scheduling (they only allow moving Mon-Fri before 4pm with no flexibility)
- Mgmt also started to charge you for bringing guests to the pool (unfortunately, can't host parties)

I love living here!

The doormen are the greatest. In this building I feel safe and secure, have an incredible gym and pool, and am in an ideal location.

The perfect match for a couple

Best value for money that I have encountered so far. But since it's a condominium it might not always be the case, still we couldn't have asked for more. Location is superb. Maintenance team and a couple of concierges are stationed 24hrs a day and are super nice. It has w/d inside the unit and the bedroom is huge, it might accommodate a small child too. Hardwood floor in the living room.

Highly recommend

Building is awesome! Doormen are the nicest people in the world. Property managers can be difficult/rude but don't have to interact with them much.

Decent apartment but horrible management

The apartment building is nice and the location is convenient. The apartment itself is fine but has some annoying inconveniences. The air conditioning went out during the hottest stretch of the summer when temperatures topped 100 degrees. The dishwasher and combination washer/dryer run extremely loud so definitely cannot run these machines if you're trying to sleep. The required membership with Comcast makes negotiating a contract very difficult. The sink is comically small, it's not possible to fit even a frying pan inside. There is 1 drawer in the entire kitchen and with the current setup, the drawer doesn't open fully because it bumps into the washer/dryer. The combination washer/dryer takes 4 full hours to run one small load. I'd be willing to swallow all of those inconveniences, but the management group at Allan Domb has to be the most incompetent group of "professionals" that I've ever met. Upon move-in, my unit was not move-in ready. They had forgotten a repair to the bathroom, so I walked into a half-finished construction site. I spent 4 days without a functional bathroom, and then when they came back to finish the job they butchered it so horribly that it had to be re-done. This meant another 2 days without a bathroom. When I complained about the service the team was completely unresponsive and when I threatened legal action they finally agreed to meet with me. They acted as an intermediary between myself and the condo owner during negotiations for reimbursement, and somehow managed to communicate the wrong offer to the condo owner. All this to say, they have successfully mishandled EVERY interaction I've had with them and I would never live in an Allan Domb unit again.

Luxury Rittenhouse Condo

Beautiful building, excellent location, and awesome restaurants nearby. Really great gym and pool for an apartment. The doormen are fantastic as well. It is fairly expensive, but well worth it.

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.
