Great location. Management not that great.
Location is perfect. Close to campus and to bars, whole foods, restaurants.
Amenities are nice. Management is ok but I would expect more considering how much I pay for rent.
The Sterling Apartments
Best bang for your buck. Great location, very reasonable prices, and awesome amenities.
Good experience overall
Good experience overall. Nice building with good amenities and a helpful staff.
Only issue I had was that the toilets in my unit kept clogging, but maintenance was responsive.
Perfect location, great apartments and management.
Gym is nice and has all the basic stuff if you don't need serious weights.
Apartments are great and lofted, the building feels very new and modern. The hallways are large and there are huge floor to ceiling windows in most apartments. The lobby is also great, the doormen are always really friendly.
Great apartment building with a staff who really cares. Riverloft is a building that truly feels like home.
Prime Time for Wharton Couples w/ Pets and No Kids
Riverloft is super convenient. With respect to Wharton, it is right across the street from 2401, the closest Center City building to campus (easily 5 to 7 minute walk shorter than most apartments), hosts many Wharton students, has great spaces to host team meetings (2 conference rooms plus another study area), and is a 2 minute walk to Bonners and Pub. The layouts are large and loft style and mostly one bedroom, so ideal for a couple that needs more space. Closest space can be tricky from unit to unit, but nothing a temporary solution from container store couldn't solve. The building is extremely pet friendly... I'd estimate 60 to 70% of the people on my floor have a dog. The building is a 5 minute walk from the Schuykill Dog Park which is an amazing dog park. Parking in the building is also very convenient but expensive. More generally, proximity to center city restaurants is still pretty strong, but definitely requires a marginally longer walk than some other buildings. The price is a little expensive if you're a single student and the larger 3BR units don't drop off around $500 / person if split evenly. Management is extremely accommodating they treat you like an actual customer, attend to things right away and remember your tame. They are responsive to requests, for example, they installed a desk in my apartment for free. The units themselves are modernized and new generally, however, designed frugally. Still quality (e.g. Stainless steel kitchen appliances) and very very clean, but just not super high end. The building's value comes from its space of the units, location (proximity to Schuylkill, right on the bike-dedicated lane on walnut), pet-friendly, and attentiveness of management. Those looking for chic, top tier gym (in building is very limited, but proximity to Sweat (~$50 / month) is helpful), a pool (it is in another building) owned by property and no in Riverloft actual goes), won't be as satisfied.
A few issues with the building and price tag (parking =$250 and rent is $2200 for single BR; split two ways b/t a couple it isn't terrible) and utilities are a little expensive (individually metered but high ceilings). We have access to DirectTV or Comcast, Verizon FIOS is a watered down version of the more broadly known service (no TV, slower WiFi). Lastly, closest space isn't amazing if you don't have the right unit.
Great units, great location
Very happy here. I feel like I get a lot of bang for my buck in terms of space. The location is also a great balance between being near Rittenhouse and other students and having ease of access to campus (i.e. on Walnut, just before the river, etc.)
Solid management team
Responsive team whenever there are issues, only complaint is that everything wasn't finalized when we moved in.
The Sterling Apartments
Great experience here. Would highly recommend.
Awesome building, under the radar
High quality building that is close enough to Rittenhouse to be super convenient, but just far enough away that you get a bit of price discount. Recently renovated with awesome amenities and well managed. I know some parts of the building get a lot of construction noise from the Comcast building, but I haven't had any issues in my apartment.
We've lived at the Sterling for several months and have had agreat experience with all of our appliances and amenities! The apartments are practically sound proof (we never hear our neighbors) and the amenities are amazing. The apartments are small for what you pay for, but the amenities make up for it.
We did have issues with the shuttle coming directly to the building but management has worked with several tenants to fix this problem. The shuttle company also randomly stops some of its vehicles from running and tenants are not informed of this beforehand.
Amazing amenities and beautiful view
The amenities here are unreal! Beautiful pool with cabanas and outdoor bar; recreation center with billiards, yoga studio, art studio, in-house dry cleaner, small market for groceries and specialty items, coffee stand, amazing gym, theater, etc. It's like living at a resort! Best part of all? My balcony view of the Philadelphia Art Museum and the Parkway. Perfect Philly location. I love living here!
Some good, some bad
The pool is great, the fitness room is small but pretty good. They have a billiards room and little movie theater room you can play your own movies from which is very nice. Management isn't very responsive though - they don't pick up the phone or follow up on e-mail very well. There was a mouse in my apartment the other day. In summary, the apartments are okay for the price, but not as nice as management makes them out to be.
Great Place to Live
My experience at Park Town Place has been a great one! The 2 bedroom apartments are generally very spacious and there's a lot of natural light. There's a brand new gym and beautiful pool that each resident has access to. The South building also has some really nice additional amenities like a marketplace and cycling room.
