Recent Panco Management reviews
The apartment itself is good value with decent floorpans. It's also in a great location surrounded by bars and restaurants. However, property management is unresponsive, there are perpetual maintenance issues with the water heater and the elevators, and on the lower levels there's a lot of noise from the street and nearby construction. Overall it is a decent place for the price, but don't expect any bells or whistles.
Good experience. Very quick response from management to fix issues
The Point at Rittenhouse Row
This apartment is located in the middle of downtown. It is walkable to everything, including the express SEPTA stop to Temple. The building itself is nice and comes with a gym. The apartments are very nice with good views and a lot of space. Maintenance is very responsive and usually comes to fix things within 1-2 business days. The only downfalls of the apartment are the construction next door is loud and they begin working early. It is also very hard to find parking near here, and it is quite hard to reach the apartment by car due to the constant traffic.
The prices have been decent but management can leave a lot to be desired depending on if you have any problems. In unit washer and dryer is nice, but there's also a basement laundry that I haven't used. They added FIOS which is way cheaper than xfinity which is great too
Great, affordable apartment...but can be loud
Well located apartment close to all of the buses / trolley / subway and regional rail at Suburban Station and City Hall a few blocks away, tons of restaurants, and lots of gyms (e.g., Rumble Boxing, Soul Cycle, Bar Method).
The apartment itself is nice for the price, but not super luxurious (carpet, slightly cheap looking counters, part-time doorman, etc.). If you don't mind the noise that comes along with living more in the heart of Center City (as opposed to further in the 20s / Chestnut + Walnut + Locust) this is a great, convenient spot.
The Point at Pentagon City Review
Best Bang for Your Buck
Perfect spot just outside of the city to allow for bigger place for less the price of living in the district. The same amount would only allow me to live in a small, dorm-like studio in the district where my queen-sized bed would take up most of the room. Close to the Pentagon City Mall and Metro.
Not fancy, but no real complaints
The location is good, about 10 minutes to either the Crystal City or Pentagon City Metro stations. Whole Foods is directly across the street and there are several restaurant and cafe options within a few blocks.
The building has a gym with basic cardio machines and some weight machines and a laundry room with many, usually empty, machines – although I have a washer/dryer in unit and never had to use the building's facilities. There is also an outdoor pool.
My unit was a fairly spacious studio with two large closets and enough floor space to comfortably fit a "bedroom area" and a "living room area" with a full couch and coffee table. Also, the balcony is a nice size with enough room for a bistro set and some plants.
I think the cleanliness of the building might be an issue for some. When I moved in to the apartment, the carpets needed cleaning and there were a few small roaches. However, the management company has always responded promptly to my questions and complaints, and they took care of the carpet and roach issues within days of me moving in. I have not had pests since then, although I have heard complaints from others in the building for roaches.
Bigger Bang for your Buck
Perfect spot just outside of the city to allow for bigger place for less the price of living in the district. The same amount would only allow me to live in a studio. Close to the Pentagon City Mall and Metro. Wish utilities were included but still worth living here.
Best value for money in Center City!
Best value in downtown Philadelphia! Really close to everything that happens in Center City for MBA students: sports, nights out, networking and company events. Campus is 20min away by trolley and 40min away by foot. Gym is ok. Overall, building amenities could be improved. Beware at it gets noisy during the weekend nights, especially from midnight to 2am as people get out of the nearby clubs and bars.
The apartment itself is a decently new/renovated building. The high points are spacious rooms at a low price, a concierge in the lobby until 11pm on weekdays and 24 hours on Friday-Saturday. The apartment is pet friendly, and relatively quiet. Every unit has a spacious balcony with a pretty decent view.
Negatives are a bug problem on the lower floors, but management provides free extermination services once weekly. Another issue is the heating/air conditioning. There is no temperature control, and no way to set the fan to 'on', you can only have it at 'auto' or 'off', which is a bit annoying. There is construction going on nearby, which will block some of the view when complete, but will also have several new stores on the ground floor.
Overall I love living in this building. I think it is the best value for the price in the area.
Great location; not so great management
The location of The Point at Pentagon city cannot be beat. The metro, mall, shopping and restaurants all within walking distance. On the other hand, its an old building and we have had a lot of issues. in addition to that, the management is terrible!
Good location otherwise standard living
I'm happy so far. The gym is lacking diverse equipment. My apartment picks up 52 wireless signals so my wi-fi can be slow at times. Comcast is the only provider. All-in-one washer dryer is weak and takes several times to dry. It does have a dog park on site which is nice.
The location of the apartment is great but the management is awful. There were so many obstacles to signing a lease here, as the leasing agents didn't always seem like they knew what they were doing. There are also many things that could be fixed within the complex, like broken elevators and business office.
Great location, spacious, not super luxe
Despite its high cost, honestly, its a relatively good price for the square footage in the apartment. There is a small gym, outside pool, and is just two blocks from the metro, pentagon city mall, pentagon row, and right by crystal city. It's really a very convenient location and super pet friendly. The mount vernon trail for running and biking is around the corner, there are great parks a block away, and the Virginia rail is also around the corner.
