Good deal

Pretty good place to live given the great location and size of the apartment. Has hardwood floors, new appliances and nice front desk staff. It can get a little noisy on the street occasionally but nothing too bad. I have no noise complaints about neighbours, walls are pretty soundproof. Management is fine, run by a smaller number of staff. They have a small gym which is clean, never crowded and fine if you don’t require a variety of machines at the gym.

Great price for location; management is okay

Management is not that great, but the rent is very reasonable for the space. There aren't amenities like a rooftop or nice gym, but the price for being one block away from Rittenhouse Square is great.

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.

Rittenhouse Square Reviews

The neighborhood is both quiet and lively. There is so much around, but I have never had an issue sleeping or studying because there is too much noise. The broad street line is a 10-15 minute walk away and we are close to shopping, food, the park, and the river trail. Has everything within a 10-15 walk.
This neighborhood has everything I need within walking distance. Shops, grocery stores, parks, the subway and trolley, post office. You name it. It's very safe and extremely quiet, which helps when I'm trying to study. The Rittenhouse Square area is really the best place to live in Philly if you don't mind paying a little more.
I love this neighborhood and knew I wanted to live here when beginning my apartment search. The park is one of my favorite places in the city, and I love being able to easily access all the restaurants and shopping nearby. It's also an easy (~20 minute) walk to Penn Law, and the walking commute has always been a nice and peaceful part of my day.

Spruce Street in particular is great - it's a little south of the square, so is quieter/shielded from a lot of the traffic that the neighborhood gets, but it's not out of the way or far away. There's a Starbucks, a grocery store (Rittenhouse Market), and a few corner stores (Four Seasons and Food & Friends) within a 2-3 minute walk of my apartment.
Rittenhouse is one of my favorite spots in Philadelphia. Great food, lots of bars/public spaces to hang out, very walkable, easy access to the Schuylkill River Trail, and beautiful buildings. The fact that it's located right across the river from UPenn as well makes it very convenient for school.
Right in the thick of Center City/Rittenhouse. Surrounded by commercial businesses and other apartment buildings. Nice and close to the park, restaurants, etc. Not too far of a walk to Trader Joe's. Chestnut Street can sometimes feel unsafe, but building itself feels very safe.
Rittenhouse is extremely lively with a lot of great restaurants and shopping. As a Penn grad student, most students live around the area so it's really convenient. The park is a great meeting point.
Close to all the bars and restaurants in the Gayborhood. 7 minute walk to Rittenhouse Square, so close to lots of Wharton students. A bit farther from campus, but I ride my bike and super easy.
I love Rittenhouse for the shopping/restaurants/parks/convenience, but like many neighborhoods in large cities you should be aware of your surroundings especially if you are a woman.
