Affordable Option with Only Minor Downsides
Overall, this apartment has been the perfect affordable option for my first year at law school. My one bedroom apartment is a lot bigger than the other options in the DC area with a square footage of 780 ft. The apartment is completely carpeted (so no hard wood unfortunately). There is a key fob swipe access to get inside the building and staff at the front desk. Myself and some other tenants have had issues with packages being lost by the staff at the front desk, eventually mine were luckily found. The only significant issue I have had is that tenants cannot pick whether to run heat or AC within our individual units. They switched over to heat in October and my apartment gets a lot of sunlight so I constantly have my windows open and fans running to keep my apartment at a comfortable temperature.
Most of the amenities have not been open due to COVID-19. However, I have been able to enjoy the beautiful courtyard in the center of my apartment which is such a nice place to hang out. Around the courtyard is also a running track, which is nice to give tenants a safer option to exercise if you prefer to run later in the evening. If you want a washer/dryer in-unit you have to specifically request an apartment with one as not all units come have them. However, each floor of the building has a really nice washer-dryer room that is still a fairly convenient option. The walls aren't too thin but I can hear my neighbors from time to time. The apartment has an awesome tenants chat page/message board which is a really nice feature as well!
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
The Point at Silver Spring Review
Good apartment if you have a partner or roommate
Underrated gem near Rittenhouse Square
I've really enjoyed my time at the Sansom and feel like it is underrated for the value it presents. Overall, highly recommend though there are not as many Wharton students living there.
- Good value - reasonable rents for the location (2 blocks from Rittenhouse Square, situated close to a lot of restaurants)
- Clean and well-maintained - lobby area and common areas are kept very clean and maintenance requests are promptly addressed
- Friendly staff - all the staff are super friendly and accomodating (helpful with packages, questions, moving, etc)
- Spacious living area (see below) with pretty good natural light/lots of windows
- For Wharton students, about 35 mins to campus (which is 10 mins longer than some of the closer properties)
- Bedrooms are a little small and some have structural beams going through the space in an awkward way. Have a walkthrough and understand if it's something you can live with - I've found it doesn't impede my use of the space at all.
- Electric lighting can be dim after the sun goes down
An overlooked place for Wharton students
I love my apartment - lots of light, lots of space. I haven't been able to find a one-bedroom unit with this much space and at this price point anywhere else in Philly, and the units are all new - so in-unit laundry, modern amenities, etc. It is also super close to Rittenhouse Sq, so walking to all the meetups is also not an issue.
Face Sansom st (not alley), great deal, new kitchen, full size washer/dryer, responsive maintenance
The building and its units are new and spacious. The high ceiling is a characteristic I personally cherish as well.
The units on high floor and facing South have amazing lighting.
The building has a gym and a small terrace. They are both decent, but not really impressive.
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.
Great apartments, okay building
Apartments are great. Good appliances, good layouts, cheaper than apartments close to the river. High ceilings. Location is close to the action but a little loud. Building is a low rise so no real views -- many apartments either look at parking garage or back alley. Walls between apartments are VERY thin.
There's a small gym and patio for the building use. Inconsistent front desk staffing. Management was great at responding to issues in the apartment though (e.g., sink fixes).
Small apartment, but well laid out and in an excellent location. There are so many bars and restaurants within a several block radius and nearby Rittenhouse Square is beautiful.
The Point at Pentagon City Review
Reasonably Priced and Centrally Located
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 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.
