Great building for those willing to trade building ammenities for sq footage

Apt is great; location is great; doormen are friendly; limited building ammenitites; one warning to light sleepers: noise is high around rittenhouse square (can be solved with something that generates white noise)

1700 Walnut

Wonderful apartment building, perfect location, never any issues, 24/7 security. The staff take care of matters very promptly and are attentive to needs. Heart of the city -- what more could anyone want? Installed a new washer immediately when ours went down. Love it here!

Fabulous apartment, fabulous location

The location at 17th and Walnut is simply amazing! Shopping, dining, public transportation, and Rittenhouse square are all literally at my doorstep. The 24 hour front desk attendant helps me feel safe and it's such a convenience having someone available to sign for my deliveries. All the units were renovated over the past few years, and I think most include a combination washer/dryer. I'm lucky to have a corner unit with 6 ft. windows on two walls- lots of light! I find the management staff friendly and very responsive. The building lacks amenities and the street noise is a bit loud until I got used to it, but overall I love 1700 Walnut and would highly recommend it to anyone apartment shopping!

Great location

Nice apartment... tons of sunlight.. best thing is its location (but downside is also that since it's on the main street, you do get noise from drunk people at night, but it's a pretty common problem for everyone on Rittenhouse Square)
. The management is fine (gets things fixed in an ok speed) and reception desk staff is very friendly. Major downside of the place is that there's no gym in the building, but pricing probably took into consideration of that.

Excellent building 1 block from Rittenhouse Square (pet friendly)

1700 Walnut is 1 block from Rittenhouse square and very pet friendly. The apartments are very large with open spaces with lots of windows and a great value for location. All apartments (I think) have washers and dryers in unit. The security people are very nice and the building management is okay - the maintenance person is great but they are sometimes slow with fixing things. Overall, I am very satisfied with this building and feel very safe and comfortable.

Well located, basic apartment building

Well located apartment building, a block away from Rittenhouse square. Clean, spacious and well lit apartment. No gym facility, but multiple gyms located in 1-2 block distance. Fixtures are old and therefore need maintenance frequently. Road noise can be an issue on the lower floors.

Rittenhouse Square Reviews

332 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.
