Recent 2400 Chestnut Associates reviews
Convenient, well-managed, and spacious
I have lived in 2400 Chestnut for nearly 5 years and cannot imagine moving anytime soon. The management is extremely welcoming and responsive to all issues. The apartments are spacious with lovely views. No problems with pests. Laundry on every floor. Convenient ~15-20 min walk to work and free morning shuttle as an alternative commute option.
2400 is a great location between school and Rittenhouse Square. The building has huge windows and great views, and is overall very convenient. As they renovate prices are increasing, but the non-renovated rooms are still a pretty good value.
2400 Chestnut Apartments Review
I love living in 2400, although it is certainly not perfect. Things I like about it: the location is perfect, easy access to center city and U city as well as multiple forms of public transport; the management and staff are extremely friendly and ready to help; the newly renovated apartments are super nice with lots of outlets, closet space, and big open windows. Things I don't like about it: there is no way to check your balance with management/make sure you have paid everything you owe besides asking someone to check manually and despite paying my rent/electric/car payment in a timely manner, I have had more than one instance where 2400 told me I owned them hundreds of dollars from months previously for an extra payment I didn't realize I owed (e.g. a new deposit when moving apartments within the building); they are still in the process of renovating apartments plus the city is redoing the Chestnut bridge so there is a LOT of construction at ALL times on many fronts and therefor a lot of noise even through the middle of the night and on weekends.
Be careful with 2400 Chestnut
This was a terrific building during my first year of law school. However, the interior of the complex is undergoing a top-down gut renovation. On top of that, Chestnut St (including the bridge) is undergoing simultaneous major construction. In short, the noise pollution is constant and unrelenting. Tenants throughout the building agree. I have complained numerous times to management and they have done little to accommodate.
Great place to live
The rent can be a bit expensive, but the building is so comfortable that it is worth it in the end
Great value for Wharton Students
Location is great for being in the Wharton bubble, and also close to school. Newly renovated apartments (renovated this year) provide a great value, although building common areas and amenities are old need upgrading (hallways, gym).
Get a unit that faces the river and you have amazing sunset views
2400 Chestnut Apartments Review
Overall a good building. Very helpful management.
Slightly over priced if you are not getting parking, reasonable parking I found at a building.
Also has a free shuttle to campus which can save $7-10 a day on cold or bad weather days
Be a heavy sleeper
Building units are undergoing renovation and there is a lot of construction on the bridge nearby, so there's nearly constant construction noise any time of day and night.
Building renovation is slower than expected so if you move into an unrenovated unit with a promise of moving, you can factor in 2-3 months worth of delays.
The building front staff are very friendly and the place is safe. It is conveniently located ~25min pleasant walk to Wharton/UPenn and ~10min walk to Rittenhouse Square. Lots of Wharton students in the building.
Basic amenities - gym, small business center. No pool or lounge area.
Very, very good location for MBA students
Location, location, location!!! 2400 is just a short walk from Rittenhouse and probably the closest among all center city appartments to the Wharton School. Most units have recently been renovated so it's nice and comfy. I love it!
Convenient on all fronts, but rent too high.
It's a great place. I love the van that drives me to school every morning. Rent is way way too high, and I would move if I had time when my lease was up. It's really unfortunate they charge what they do. So many of my friends have significantly nicer places and pay a lot less. Their places are in some ways less convenient, but when I'd be saving $600-700 a month(!), it's no question I feel like I've made a bad call.
I've lived here for 5 years and have been mostly happy
2400 Chestnut St is conveniently located close to campus, 30th st station, and downtown festivities. It's also super easy to hop on the highway by car. The building also offers a free shuttle to campus on weekdays.
Most units are being renovated which has been pushing up the prices quite a bit. Had I been forced to move into a renovated unit, I would have moved out of the building (due to budgetary constraints). The new units are beaauttiiffullll, but for the new rent price, you can get better amenities in other buildings in the city (i.e. a nice gym, in unit laundry, etc.). Of note, the new building management is not as responsive as they used to be. For instance, I had flooding in my kitchen which was not addressed for multiple days. And the cable service has been disconnected in the building for a couple of months, though leasing agreements state that this amenity is included in the cost of rent.
Overall, however, I've had a good experience in the building. It's been a staple part of my Philly and medical school experience.
Great for law students
Been living here for 2 years while at Penn Law. Very solid building--close enough to the law school but also gives you space. Management is very responsive. Only complaints are sometimes there is street or apt construction which is very loud at inconvenient times (but not often)
2400 Chestnut Review
Living in 2400 Chestnut has been a great experience. The building is very nice, especially since they are re-doing all the apartments. I particularly appreciate the guys at the front desk, who are super nice and plugged in to what's happening, and the free gym in the building for residents. It's also a perfect location - 15 minute walk to the law school and 15 minutes in the opposite direction to downtown. Downsides are that its a bit more pricey and there's always ongoing construction outside.
