Recent Pearl Properties reviews
Overall I enjoyed my experience at 1200 Walnut. The apartment was updated and climate control was great. However, I didn't feel like the secure entry is actually secure. Also, I felt like the apartment is overpriced. There are far more buildings in that area for the same price or cheaper that offer a doorman, gym, rooftop, etc.
Location is a bit noisy, but apartments are great
These apartments are great, if you don't mind the bustling streets below. There are a lot of bars and restaurants on the block, which can be both good and bad...15th and Locust tends to get noisy, especially at night. My gf and I bought a noise machine though, and that did the trick. The building itself has new everything and crazy high ceilings, so even though our 1BR apartment doesn't have a lot of square footage, it doesn't feel small at all. The property manager is also very friendly to work with and the maintenance team is very responsive.
Great location and apartment but few amenities
Apartment is in a great location but it can also become noisy at times with all the surrounding bars and restaurants. It is very close to the patco and septa so it's convenient if you don't own a car. Several gyms nearby with 12th st gym around the corner. The apartment itself has high ceilings and updated appliances. Washer and dryer in the unit, dishwasher, good storage space. Kitchen is in the middle of the apartment so ventilation can be an issue at times. Management has been relatively helpful with any issues that come up. No pets allowed.
Amazing management and beautiful apartments, not a great location.
This apartment has beautiful units, and the management is responsive to maintenance needs and other requests. The only big problem is that it is located on a corner with five loud bars, and attracts a lot of attention for that reason. If I could move this apartment to Washington Square, I would be the happiest person. That being said, it is definitely worth a look.
The building has really fantastic amenities including a lounge, a shared common space/kitchen, and a fully functioning gymnasium. It also has an entertainment center and an outside patio. The staff is great and management is very accommodating thus far.
The location is prime - right in the heat of Center City with good food, parking, good coffee, grocery store, dry cleaner, gym within a block. The rent is fair and management responds to all maintenance requests within one day! Can get noisy at night
Great room, convenient location
It's been great living at 1200 Walnut St. The location is incredibly convenient and close to plenty of restaurants/bars/gyms. My unit has very high ceilings, enormous windows, and modern appliances. I can't overstate how satisfied I've been with the management (Pearl Properties). They've been consistently responsive, friendly, and proactive about building issues.
* Good value for a central-Philadelphia location
* Spacious and well-appointed rooms
* Excellent management
* Street noise is sometimes an issue as people congregate outside a neighboring bar late at night.
* The building has one regular elevator and one freight elevator, but we're not given access to the freight elevator when it comes time to move.
Really good rent for the area, and everything is nearby.
Brand new apartment building with one of the best locations in Philadelphia. Highly recommended.
Renovated and cheap, but a little noisy
The electric bill is very cheap, but it can be a little noisy at night. There are a lot of restaurants and bars in the neighborhood.
The apartment is small but everything is new and feels nice. You do get a lot of street noise if you are on the side of the building facing 17th. Also, the window blinds are a bit see through, so privacy is not great because there is a hotel facing you. The amenities are great and include 1) a good sized gym with new equipment, 2) a theatre room with large couch, 3) a common room with pool table, TV, Kitchen, and large dining table, and 4) a study room. The front desk attendants are excellent. I am happy with the apartment/location. You can not have pets and there is no parking.
The best apartment in Philly for Wharton MBA students.
Great building for the price
Nice amenity space. Great deal for one bed with walk-in closet and W/D in unit. Chestnut Street is fairly loud but a box fan works like a charm at night.
It was solid.
It was a solid building.
Great value, beautiful apartment
I love this apartment and building! It's a little off the beaten path for most MBAs being a couple blocks away from the park, but it's an extremely convenient location to take the bus or the subway at 15/Market. The finishes in the apartment are beautiful - exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, washer/dryer in unit, dishwasher, new appliances, big kitchen island, great for entertaining. The building is quiet and neighbors are respectful. No pets allowed. Also, the price is a little lower than some of the other popular Wharton buildings - a 1br for sub-$2k. Highly recommend!
