Fantastic 8 Story Building

Great apartment at a reasonable price in a great location. The staff of the building are extremely nice and professional and get to know every single resident.

Units are individually owned, so it can be a bit of a search to get into the building, but you will not regret it.

Water is included in rent, but electricity is not. Electricity is usually 20-30 for a single resident.

Excellent experience

The Belgravia is a diamond in the rough - a wonderful find! The staff is attentive, caring and helpful. The outside is historic while inside the apartments are very modern. The gym is well equipped and rarely busy. The community is wonderful! Pet friendly and lots of other students and young families are around. Only two blocks from the bus stop and from the trolley stop, right next to Sweetgreen and in the heart of Rittenhouse Square.

Great Units

Great, recently renovated units with plenty of sunlight, spacious floor plans. I have had no issues whatsoever. I believe all units are individually owned condo's. My landlord is extremely friendly and responsive.

The building is not as social as some of more expensive high rises, but is centrally located enough that it only takes a few minutes to get to most of center city.

A Hidden Gem - Best Location and Great Management at The Belgravia

The Belgravia is a small condo building and is a hidden gem for Wharton students. It is a small building, which means that the management knows everyone by face and by name so the building is extremely safe. Additionally, the location is excellent - it's located a block from the trolley on 19th and Market, two blocks from the Walnut street bus stop that goes to campus, and the bus coming from campus stops right outside the front door. It's conveniently located near a Starbucks, restaurants, a CVS and Rittenhouse Square. The outside is historic but the inside is very modern. There's a gym and a mailroom, and 24 hour concierge. The maintenance staff is quick to respond and very courteous. An excellent find and great value for money! Pet and family friendly.

Spacious and beautiful but with some issues

My apartment itself and a few other that I've seen in the building are all beautiful. Spacious, hardwood floors, plenty of windows. Unfortunately there are a couple things that are left to be desired. Closet/cabinet space is very limited but that's something I knew coming in. Management however really needs some help scheduling their maintenance checks. The building had new Windows installed on the front of the building and the coordination between the window installers, painters, and screen installers was essentially nonexistent.

While future residents probably don't need to worry about a new set of window installs for years to come, the limited amount of coordination abilities shown will permeate into other facets of building management.

Also, this place is beautiful and I love it but it's truly a pain to move into. You have to reserve the elevator for a couple hours and you can only move in at that time. Unfortunately, more often than not, multiple tenants may be moving out of the building as well so you end up with a traffic jam and a time count down. There's also a couple hundred dollar fee just to move in and another couple hundred bucks to move out.

Updated, spacious apartments with a strong management team

This is an amazing building for students if you can find an apartment! There is a gym, excellent building staff and management company, and it is well-maintained. Safety was key as I am a young woman living alone, and the area is well-lit, right across from Boyds, and the building requires a key fob for entry. Every apt has its own washer/dryer and is newly updated. Overall, this is a great place to live.

Great place for grad students!

The Belgravia is an amazing place to live (if a unit is available)! There are only 52 units and most are owned, but people occasionally sublet. The location is close by everything you need, the doormen and management are always friendly, and I have always felt safe. The location is definitely walk-able to campus without being right by campus. There is no parking, but there are plenty of garages close-by (very expensive but they are there). Each sublet unit has different landlord rules (ex. mine unit does not allow pets but other landlords do). Each unit has a washer & dryer, which is hard to find in center city. Overall, I love living here and definitely recommend it.

Convenience on Chestnut

Units owned by individuals so they can be hit or miss depending on owner. Wood floors, granite countertops, modern appliances. The building is clean, individuals at the desk are friendly and helpful (24 hours) and it's safe. Gym is a little small with 3 treadmills and small number of free weights as well as a bench. The building is in a great location: for grocery/convenience shopping, it's across the street from CVS & DiBruno Brothers, for food, there is a good selection nearby (Chinese/thai/burgers/indian/sushi/american/mediterranean) and for bars, a good number as well. Chestnut tends to be less busy than Walnut on weekends so it's not as crowded. You have market street behind you with the 19th St. trolley stop conveniently located there. Families live here and the building rarely gets rowdy -you usually have a few Wharton students living here but its by no means, a "Wharton building."

Beautiful apartments

Probably not a nicer place in the city. Great location. Only downside is the apartments are cold in the winter.

Rittenhouse Square Reviews

264 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.
Safe neighborhood; although there are people hanging around the streets, that generally does not present any threat. Located in the shopping zone, and in the center of the bar/restaurent scene. Many grocery stores are in close proximity and very accessible as well.
Best place for Penn grad students to live, lots of bars and restaurants, reasonable walk to school. Outside university bubble.
Lots of bars and restaurants nearby, but not close enough that you hear late-night weekend foot traffic.
Rittenhouse area has a ton of great coffee shops, restaurants, retail stores, and bars/options for nightlife. The area feels incredibly safe and vibrant; during the day, it's bustling. The biggest challenge in this neighborhood is buying groceries, particularly if you're on a budget. Overall, an amazing neighborhood!
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.
