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)
Perfect living situation!
I love living here! The doormen are so sweet and helpful, the community is great, and it’s in the perfect location between Rittenhouse Square area and the law school
Convenient and Adequate
You are definitely paying for convenience at this apartment. Being right between school and center city has its perks. They are currently renovating units, so if you have an old apartment...it's clean (and cheaper) but not really "nice." The new units are great. There are no pest problems at all, which is a major plus.
There is a shuttle that runs every weekday morning which is excellent when it is really cold out or raining.
Good location. Heating/AC uses a small eletric unit set into the wall. It is generally inefficient, which increases the electric bill and leaves something to be desired in terms of temperature control
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.
Convenient location with good building management
I live in a newly renovated apartment with a river view (it's beautiful!). The building is old, but can't complain - everything functions just fine and my apartment itself feels and looks new. The building management is very responsive, they repair things quickly and the staff at front desk are friendly and help take and organize your packages. There's free laundry too (although shared on the floor with other tenants). I walk to and from school, it's a good brisk walk for me. I love living in Center City too and being walking distance away from lots of things in the city itself.
Makes life easy
Between the friendly staff and the shuttle to UPenn... 2400 chestnut makes life easy
Most convenient apartment complex
It might not be the most elegant or upscale apartment complex, but is definitely the most convenient apartment in terms of distance to school and center city, free shuttle bus service, friendly management staff, etc
Nice building with great view
2400 Chestnut is an old building that is slowly upgrading its units. I live in a renovated unit that faces the river (the view is amazing).
I love this building, the rent is cheap and has a great location, close to campus and a free shuttle. Also, the staff is super friendly and helpful.
Since my unit is new I haven't experience any maintenance problem. The elevator is surprisingly fast compare to newer buildings in Center City. The gym is small and a little old but is enough to get a basic work out session.
Good building, value for money, great staff
Closest to school in Rittenhouse area, has a free shuttle in the morning to school, spacious units with affordable rent compared to the area. Good management.
Renovated apartment with free communal laundry on each floor. Courtesy shuttle for residents leaving every 15 minutes for about 4 hours each weekday morning to Penn’s campus. 24 hour doorman and responsive maintenance crew.
I'm a fan
I have very positive feelings about this place. The best part is the shuttle in the morning. It drops you off within 45 seconds of the law school. In the winter I don't wear my coat in the van and often don't bother putting it on between the van drop-off and the law school.
The facilities aren't flashy, but are more than sufficient...they spent on the lobby and are renovating apartments gradually, but I'm not in one of the renovated ones. Still definitely meets my needs.
The maintenance staff is super responsive and requests are attended to, in my experience, within 48 hrs.
Location is fantastic!! It's right between University City and Center City, which means that you are proximate to school activities at Penn and also proximate to social activities downtown. You're 5 blocks from target, 3 blocks from Trader Joe's, dry cleaner in the basement, 1 block from Rite Aid, and 3 blocks from a liquor store. There are also a number of bars and restaurants within 5-10 minute walk!!
Security is pretty solid. There's a fob for the elevators; desk guys in the lobby 24/7 who recognize most residents, call you if you have a visitor, and let them up for you. Very convenient. Similar protocol if you order food...hold delivery at the desk and call you for pick-up.
The gym is fine, but if you have high standards/needs, then it may underwhelm.
I'm on the 2nd floor, which means a quick elevator ride, but my friends on the 32nd and 33rd floor, who spend longer in the elevator, have the most gorgeous views in the mornings and evenings!
That's all I can think of.
