Recent LCOR Inc. reviews
Love the apartment and the people who work downstairs. Some kinks being worked out and delays with amenities since it is a new building. I think next year (after it has been in operations/ use for 1 year), things will be a bit more smooth.
1919 Market is the best building in Philadelphia. It's brand new and the best value for the amenities offered.
Pro: Brand new building. Slight delays with opening of amenities but the wait was well worth it. Management is very responsive and likes to organize social events for residents to meet. Conveniently located with a CVS in the same building, Wawa across the street, a Trader Joe's about a block away.
Brand new building with great amenities and location
I am a first year MBA student at Wharton. Overall, I would recommend this building to someone looking for a brand new building with great amenities and location
Brand new apartment and great amenities
- Everything is brand-new. Brand-new appliances, washer/dryer in unit
- Heater/AC is energy-efficient. Utility bills $20-30 monthly.
- Rooms are facing south, big windows, a lot of sunlight during the day
- Great rooftop lounge, gym facilities
- Parking garage in the building. Zip car is also located in the parking garage
Convenient and safe location
- Easy commute to university city: It takes less than 15 min door to door from my apt to Huntsman hall via Trolley
- Transportation to New York: If you have to make trips to New York every Friday for recruiting, this building is the right building for you (~10 min walking distance from the 30th station/bolt bus stop)
- Groceries/drug stores: Wawa (across the street), CVS (in the building), Trader Joe's (5-10 min walk)
- Market street is one of the main streets in center city and it feels safe at night
- You have to walk a little bit to get to the Rittenhouse area but it's not too bad.
Only downside is it's a bit expensive for the square footage you get. It does have a good, efficient layout for studios with built-in closets for storage, but I wish I had a little more space. Also, it can be a little noisy if you live close to the ground floor (I'm on the 7th floor and I can hear cars honking/fire trucks on market street)
New, good but a bit expensive
Great quality and very kind personnel. Fantastic amenities. A bit expensive.
Great building but noisy street
The building and apartment is great. The only problem is the fire department on the same street that makes a lot of noise.
Great management. Modern amenities (still being built out), beautiful elevators / hallways and extremely modern and beautiful apartments. For the value and the amazing location, the rent is worth every cent. Management is very easy to reach and accessible, and maintenance is handled quickly. Also with the septa stop right next to the apartment, and amazing eateries all around, we don't think we'll ever leave!
You're paying for location
The apartment looks really nice and luxurious until you move in. You'd expect a standard for what you're paying. However that is not the case here. The appliances are small. The finishing is sub par. The counters are a cheap imitation of granite. I can't say much about the amenities because they aren't finished yet. Even though they were promised at least 3 months ago. The management staff is friendly but they'll find a way to squeeze some extra bucks out of you . For example they tried to collect a $10/month fee for the bike racks then quickly change their tone after getting a flood of complaints. I think this place should be a third cheaper.
Work in Progress
1919 Market is a new building and is still going through construction. The amenities floor is supposed to offer a lot to residents, including a gym and a pool, however it is yet to be completed. The appliances look good, but are cheap. There are many annoying things about the apartment and the appliances that are difficult to swallow considering the rental fee. On the plus side, the bathroom has an excellent layout with a walk-in tiled shower. Our one bedroom and one den apartment offers plenty of closet space (spacious bedroom closet, pantry/linen closet and large coat closet). The extra closet between the bathroom and kitchen (which can be used as a pantry or linen closet) is very useful. The floor to ceiling windows add plenty of light. The kitchen offers tons of cabinets and will fit all of your dishes, serve-ware, appliances and more. The maintenance people and people that sit at the front desk are very accommodating and nice.
Great location to experience Philly
1919 Market is a great place to live! Me and my family are within walking distance to great restaurants, theatres, shopping, Rittenhouse Square, and lots of fun cultural locations. Everything is walkable and the area is very safe. Nearby construction can be loud at times, but great building and community to live in.
Your next home in the middle of the city
You're steps away from everything you need - a Trader Joe's supermarket, CVS pharmacy (opening downstairs), fresh La Colombe coffee, Amtrak Main Station and even the amazing Schuylkill River cycling/running/walking trail. Not to mention the brand new amenities coming soon - full gym, pool, rooftop lounge and even a golf simulator!
The best part of living here though? You're well looked after by a spectacular team of staff who truly care about your stay. As you're inspecting other apartments in the area, you won't greetings as warm as the one at our concierge desk - every... single... day. Plus, you'll find your neighbors are mostly young professionals who are super friendly and live harmoniously in the middle of the city.
Brand new apartments in the heart of the city
Modern interior and prime location. The building management are friendly and very approachable. Love living in the building, everything is clean and the neighbors are friendly. Close to supermarket and local restaurants. Public transport is excellent!.
Wonderful place to live. Great restaurants all around the building. Walking distance to Rittenhouse Square, high-end shopping district, and conveniently located near the 30th street Septa station. Easy to get around town and vibrant philadelphia community.
The Exchange at 25 Broad has been an amazing place to live. Because the subways converge in the Financial District, it is incredibly easy to get anywhere in NYC - east side, west side, Brooklyn, uptown, midtown, etc. Every week there seems to be a new bar or restaurant opening up around here, and it is incredibly close to some great outdoor spaces. Love living down here and would absolutely recommend it.
My housing experience has been pretty different from a lot of medical students in that I am living downtown with my fiance as opposed to on the east side where most students live. It's a little more inconvenient to get to school--I can't just roll out of bed 10 minutes before class starts--so if you're not a morning person this probably isn't the best choice for you. But if you're okay with getting up a little earlier, it is super convenient to get to school on the Healthline--and it saves a lot of money on parking! Overall, I absolutely love living down here. There are so many bars and restaurants within walking distance, and pretty much everywhere I would want to go is just a $5-10 Uber away (Cleveland Heights, Ohio City, Tremont, W 6th/9th, etc). The Statler is also right in the theater district, so if you're into that kind of thing, its really nice to be able to just walk out your door and see a show!
