Great location and value, horrible management

PMC is extremely difficult to work with. The management at Embassy is very incompetent. I have had issued with subcontractors doing work in my apartment and leaving my apartment unlocked, as well as maintenance coming to do work in the middle of the night.

The pros: Heat, Hot Water & Cooking Gas are included, and the prices are the lowest i've seen for a pet friendly doorman building in this neighborhood. My apartment is very sunny, has decent hardwood floors and good storage throughout.

The cons: I've lived in this building for 5+ years so I have had good and bad experiences with management and staff, but overall they have been pretty hands off and unresponsive.

embassy apt

Old interior. Layout is nice but bad execution. Place was "renovated" but not done well at all. There are no handles on a lot of the storage cabinets, broken cabinet sliding doors, the windows and drawers were stuck because of the paint. They completely painted over one of my electric outlets. Weird little bugs in my bathroom. No AC!! Put in two maintenance requests for low sink water pressure, its been a couple of weeks and i havent received help yet. Hot and stinky hallway. blegh. Elevator is so slow. But theres a gym thats somehow always empty, utilities except electricity included, spacious, helpful and friendly security, and super close to the 21/42/12 bus stop.

Embassy Apartments

Building has a gym and door man. Front door uses electronic key. Rent includes all utilities except electric, heating is steam radiators. Management can be hard to get a hold of. Pets are okay here with a deposit - tons of the neighbors have dogs. There is definitely bars ad restaurants near by but some are really expensive. Area is really safe and well lit at night. Bus 21 and 42 stop accross the street and go straight towards campus, trolley stop is a two block walk away.

Awful - Do not live here

PMC is a horrendous management company. Avoid renting from them at all costs, but especially avoid 2100 Walnut Street. They are undertaking a major building renovation that includes construction in every unit. The construction began in my unit 8 months ago and is still not completed. I have had no closet space since the start (they are installing new pipes in both closets) and have had uncovered holes associated with demolition for months. Furthermore, tenant complaints about the project have fallen on deaf ears. Only after we threatened to organize a tenant union did management begin to listen. They are now pretending to better oversee the construction, but it's definitely just an act.
Other highlights:
-There have been over 20 "emergency" water shut downs in the building.
-We also no gas or heating for 48 hours in November.
-There was a garbage fire in the alley way in November that made the building unlivable for days. Management provided no monetary compensation to tenants for displacement.
JUST DON'T LIVE HERE.

Value vs Value Trap

I moved to the Embassy because it had a nice open view and the apartment was larger than anything else at the $1,300 range, nice wood floor, and the building had a laundry room and a door man.

Problems include constant renovation, mice in my kitchen (I dont know why because there is no food in my kitchen), and random problems such as clogged sinks, leaking sinks, leaking shower, leaking steam pipe.

Most of the problems (after some hassle) management fixes within 1-2 weeks. But needless to say, this is not a "no hassles" apartment.

Awesome Location Just off the Square

I just moved to Philly and the Embassy is a great apartment. You can't beat the location and price. The building is old but well-kept. My studio is very small, you get what you pay for and the kitchen is definitely lacking. My view is fantastic, and the studio is nice.

Pre-War Style and Great Location

I love the location of this building! It's two blocks from Rittenhouse, walking distance to Drexel and UPenn, on the 21/42/12/9 bus routes and the UPenn shuttle. The details in the apartments--wood floors, beautiful molding, lots of closet space and storage--are great. But the building is older and constantly undergoing construction and upkeep. Sometimes I wake up and there just isn't hot water. Sometimes one of the elevators doesn't work. But it's a doorman building and all of the staff (plumbers, porter, guards, etc.) are friendly and helpful. Unlike some other buildings internet and cable are not included in the rent BUT you never pay heat (unlike some buildings which charge you $50 a month all year round!).

Good value

Best value in high rise near Rittenhouse Square. Management can be a little slow to respond to maintenance requests, but persistence pays off. 800 sq ft 1-BR for $1500 with hardwood floors and huge, recently remodeled kitchen. Great value for the money.

About Fitler Square

Situated right along the Schuylkill River, Fitler Square is a quaint neighborhood full of old-school Philadelphia charm. It's part of a larger area more commonly referred to as 'Schuylkill' that's also comprised of Devil's Pocket and Grays Ferry. Renters rave about this area for the nearby parks and...

Fitler Square Reviews

168 reviews
The neighborhood is perfect for my needs. I am 1 block from the Schulykill park (and the running/biking trail) (and dog park, basketball courts, tennis courts). I'm also half a block from Fitler Square. I am about 7 minutes via bike from CHOP and on closer to my clinic site than the hospital. I'm north of South Street so closer to the action and very close to the gym. Also Delancey is a very good looking street.
Wharton bubble. I love it. Decent restaurants-- not as many fast+healthy+good-value meal options nearby as I'd like but many nice places. Nightlife is what Wharton makes it. Easy walk to some cool stuff in town.

Chestnut street has more of a homeless problem than I'd like but that will be hard to avoid in general, has not been a problem for me personally.
Couldn't be better. Walk to my favorite restaurants and bars in less than 5minutes. Walk to my gyms/work out studios in as little as 4 min. 1.5 blocks away from bus stop and Septa trolley. Trader Joes down the block as is Rite Aid, CVS, multiple take-out restaurants. Can walk to work in 20 mins. Many residents live nearby-social hub.
I was looking for a more authentic Philly experience outside of the heavily commercialized Rittenhouse Square area. Fitler Square is one of the most charming and beautiful neighborhoods in Philly. Amazing location next to a Starbucks, grocery store, bars, and many other amenities. So happy to be here. Love this neighborhood
Our neighbors have been quiet, lots of people with pets and young families. The neighborhood is pretty calm, cars are fairly rare and it’s very walkable. There’s a grocery store about 3 blocks away, which is great, and there are a lot of trees, which is always nice.
It is terribly unexceptional, which may be a good thing - no crowds, gawping tourists, amateur sports teams on a night out, etc. There are a few restaurants and bars nearby and you are generally in walking distance of everything you might need
Fitler square is primarily behind Riverloft (which faces Walnut). You're really in Center City. The Fitler square neighborhood is amazing for walks with dog, running, hanging out in the park, small cuter-type restaurants, etc. Probably more attractive to couples, families, and lower-key students. A little bit of a walk (10 minutes) for bar scene, with exception to Pub and Bonners.
I think Fitler Square has it all. It has its own good bars and restaurants and is only a couple blocks to the full host of things at Rittenhouse. Easy walk to campus or convenient Route 40 bus. Multiple parks including the one at Taney and Lombard which is one of the biggest parks in the city and part of the Schuylkill River Trail. Decent grocery store right at 23rd and south, but still a reasonable walk to Trader Joes at 22nd and Market too.
