Recent EB Realty Management reviews
Ok place with great ceilings and spacious, but lousy management
Lofts 640 is one of the few places in Philly with covered parking built-in that is still affordable and close to Center City. I love the location, and the lofts style, but management could be better, friendlier, and more available. And they need to replace the carpets!
Nice place to live, building is clean and well maintained. Management is prompt. Note we rent from a condo owner, but no complaints about the building itself, so I don't have much to say about EB Reality, however I enjoy living there and my wife loves it.
Great management and amenities
We have lived here for 2 years and love it. The front desk people are great, and take the time to know everyone in the building. The amenities are fantastic - pool and gym are never busy, at times it's almost like having your own private pool. The maintenance requests were always responded to quickly. The aesthetic is very modern (all lofts). I felt that it was well worth the price.
Mixed bag but pretty good overall
The building included a lot of amenities, which were useful. Apart from the couple of restaurants right next to it, it's a short walk to the Fairmount neighborhood, and a more substantial trip down to Center City and the rest of the action in Philadelphia. Maintenance response was good, but some of our problems took months to be resolved. From speaking to others around the building, it seems a bunch of units had problems with their electricity bills, which were always very high for everyone. The front desk is very helpful to have, depending on who's working. Overall, it had everything I needed and I enjoyed living there, so long as the bar wasn't set too high. If I had to do it again, I would do it for a slightly lower rent.
Amazing location, great people
- location: right next to a BSL station; walkable to Center City, Passyunk, Italian Market; generally street parking available
- renovated apartment has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances including dishwasher, wood laminate flooring, jacuzzi tub, in-apartment washer/dryer
- staff and management: always friendly and helpful; front desk staff are very professional and package service is great
- small but adequate gym in building, with hot tubs
- attached parking garage available (additional cost)
- awesome courtyard
- pet friendly
- some details (closet doors, for example) are low-quality as if the renovations were hurried (used to be a warehouse)
- not a lot of storage space
Overall, a great place. Rent may be a little high compared to other places around the city, but the location and apartment features make it worth it.
Nice building good staff
I have lived at the marine club for a year now, The building has a nice court yard and decent gym. Great for dog owners since there is a little dog area in the court yard. Not a huge fan of the building layout though. Parking is not included in rent and runs over $100 a month
Big place around 900-1000 sq feet with good amenities and included parking which is huge. Decent neighborhood but not the best. Very close to Chinatown and walkable to museum area and center city. Bad thing is they are very strict about no pets. Door to door to cooper is probably around 20 minutes
Great bang for your buck
I've been living at the Marine Club for about 9 months. I really like it. It's one of the least expensive buildings in the city with a front desk and gym. Most of the apartments are modern with granite countertop, stainless steel appliances, new bathrooms, and in-unit washer dryer. I've been able to get back into exercising recently. The gym there is pretty big for an apartment building. I don't have a car, but they have a garage available. It's also within 100 feet of the Ellsworth / Federal stop.
Great apartment building in fun neighborhood
I love the amenities that come with this building and reduced cable/internet discount. The gym and swimming pool are enough for my needs and great rooftop for a change of scenery. Alla Spina is right across the street and Fairmount Ave hosts a bunch of great bars and restaurants. Only gripe is I do wish the building was dog friendly.
Safe area and great location
Lofts 640 is a great apartment building with parking (included in rent!) and a gym on site.
Very spacious & good amenities
While you can find cheaper 1 br in a building, lofts 640 truly is the best bang for your buck. Pool and hot tub are only open til 11 pm, but gym is being improved on with new perks (free trainer). The North Broad stretch is up and coming, with new bars, apartments. You feel the city living without the true traffic/chaos since Fairmount is still a residential area.
Quiet and Clean
This building is constructed of solid concrete, which is nice, because it helps to muffle the noise from neighbors. The ceilings are high, with large windows and gives it a modern feel. The windows however, are not insulated well at all, and in the winter, they let in a lot of air. The forced AC/Heat work, but since the vent is fairly high on the wall, the heat just rises, and it runs constantly trying to keep the apartment at a 63 degrees in the winter.The gym is great for an apartment building, however, it does get cramped when you have people trying to use jump ropes, Pilates, and other routines that take up floor space. BUT, there is a pilates/Yoga studio space. Overall, this is a really nice community to live in, and management is very cooperative and helpful. The building offers social gatherings for residents, and holiday parties.
Large Studio, and great building
The apartment is not a typical cramped studio, with the high ceilings and large square footage. It may not be worth the $850 a month, but the gym membership, and location make up for some of the price. Generally safe, not sure if the doormen really question everybody they don't recognize...but I'd rather believe they do.
I moved here more out of necessity than desire -- I needed an affordable apartment with a secure parking lot. Lofts 640 has delivered more than I could have expected! Quiet, nice amenities, helpful staff. Love it here! Perhaps most notable is the amount of space you get for your dollar -- way more than any other building in the area or, most likely, the city.
Not the best location, but close enough to everything and great amenities and value.
