Would be good if it weren't for an inept property manager
nice floor plan
Maintenance folks are nice and security guards too.
Building property manager does not engage with tenants on building or apartment issues and does not respond to tenant emails
You Don't get What You Pay For
Surface level it looks nice, but for the price they charge I feel you should get more. There's a roach problem in the building. There are a lot of pet owners, so you are greeted with the pungent smell of urine every single day. All in all, would not recommend to a friend. Plus there's a lot of construction and the nieghborhood gets deserted at night, so I feel unsafe walking my dog after dark. There are a lot of homeless people and drug addicts. When you pay for a luxury building, you usually get a safe neighborhood to go with it. Not really the case here.
Excellent natural light, spacious, new appliances
Can't beat the location
I love the location- so many restaurants and shops nearby, close to the bus and the subway. My other favorite part are the high ceilings in our apartment. There is a gym in the building, which is convenient, but it is VERY basic with limited equipment, but still nice to have. Closet space is very limited and we've had to be creative with storage options. In the summertime, I wish there was pool/large deck. There is a small deck on the 6th floor.
Location: above the Trader Joe's and a trolley stop two stops from campus; equidistant from campus and city hall; 7/11, Dunkin Donuts, Wawa, and CVS all within one block
Amenities: 24-hr concierge accepts packages (Ehric is the greatest man alive!); one-time $250 pet fee; decent gym (free weights up to 50 lb, bikes, ergs, treadmills, ellipticals, and weighted machines) with indoor lounge and outdoor deck on the roof; laundry on each floor (uses a refillable "credit card" so no quarters); huge windows and high ceilings
Don't live here even if it looks convenient
Apartment hadn't appeared to have been cleaned when I came to move in. Mice were caught throughout the year in my apt and cockroaches in the basement where the gym and laundry were. Fire alarms were often on the fritz. Across the street from the hospital and the ER so get used to hearing the helicopter throughout the night.
The apartment has a great location across the street from whole foods and CVS, very close to Fairmount restaurants and bars and the Art Museum, walkable to center city, longer walk to University City but still doable (when you're not carrying your constitutional law book).
The building is pet-friendly, has a gym in the basement, and a great roof deck.
The management company is not so great though. The building is desperately in need of renovations, the gym is never clean, machines are not wiped down ever, and the carpets are very dirty. Management response is slow and minimal, never completing the job in one shot or communicative about when things may be fixed.
Great place to live
2040 Market is a great place to live. Albeit a bit expensive, it is a great location with beautiful apartments, a decent gym, and nice outdoor communal space. Management are good people to work with and maintenance are extremely quick to help and always available. Easy commute to Drexel, as well.
It's cool new apartment. Great gym, we have cinema, studying rooms, ireas for quests , pool table, lot of fireplaces to sit with a book. It's pet friendly building.
BUT No smoking! No big parties!
Also my tip- this kitchen not for cooking (max salads) - their vents are very weak. Be careful because fire alarm costs a lot. Lol.
Negative Surprises Wreck Tenant Experience - Strongly Advise To Pass on this Building
My overall experience living at 2040 Market has been deeply unsatisfactory. I would not recommend this building to anyone moving to Philadelphia, especially considering the price point. Further, PMC Property Group (management) clearly doesn't value the tenant experience based on some of the issues and lack of remedies offered by them.
While, I have a terrible impression of this building, to be fair, I'd like to point out a few of its charms. The building has an excellent location, minutes from Rittenhouse Square and public transport and less than a 10 minute walk from 30th Market Street Station. On the higher floors, 6 and above, the views of Philadelphia are stupendous. The apartment layouts are spacious, if not sprawling, covered by high ceilings and framed well with floor to ceiling windows. Finally, if you're a pet owner, the building couldn't be more pet friendly.
Unfortunately, what appears pleasant on the surface, ends up lacking significant depth. I found PMC Property Group somewhat accommodating with easy asks, such as move in dates but once real issues started bubbling to the surface, the PMC representatives were filled with empty promises and unreasonable constraints. Beyond managements ineptitude, I've listed below a number of the issues that I came across while living here for only 6 months. Together, they have wrecked my experience and made it seem as if the building were put together quickly and cheaply to start generating landlord profits.
Here's a list of a few of the issues that I've encountered:
- Ventilation failures during periods of extreme weather (both during the heat and during the cold - temperature dropped below 60 degrees in my apartment during New Years 2018, one of the coldest days of the year, due to heating failure. Management did nothing for more than 24 hours)
- Some units in my hallway are rented out as short term rentals, like HOTEL ROOMS. This was unexpected and unwanted, to say the least
- A/C units are all interconnected and there have been several instances of cigarette smells emanating from the vents
- The fire alarm has gone off at least once a month since I've lived here, sometimes past 12AM. Many of the tenants at this point ignore the alarm entirely, a dangerous proposition
- The treadmills in the building aren't ever all working at once. Management on several occasion promised to fix them but have not
- The fuse in one of my rooms blows easily (blew from two appliances being plugged in)
- The kitchen sink was not properly designed and water often leaks beneath it
If the building were to permanently solve these issues, I would absolutely adjust my rating but until then, I wouldn't recommend you consider this building in your apartment search.
Great value, drains sometimes slow to drain and can be loud depending on what side of the apartment you’re on, but overall very happy with the price and location.
Great place to live
Lots of room, great location (between Rittenhouse and University City). Management is responsive, though it sometimes takes awhile for maintenance requests to be filled.
Great location & amenities
This is the best location - less than a 5 minute walk from both Trader Joe’s and Target, as well as countless restaurants, stores, and bars. The complex also has a two-story gym, a rooftop deck on the 6th floor, high ceilings, big windows, and free indoor temperature-controlled moped parking!! (Moped not motorcycle) Also, it is pet friendly, and even if you don’t have pets, it’s fun to see other people’s pets. The building is a 20-25 minute walk from the Law school depending on how fast you walk/how many stoplights you hit. Otherwise, the trolley is right across the street and takes you directly to Penn Law for a low fare.
2040 Market is a good choice for Wharton Students. The location is great and the building has all of the amenities and basic conveniences I needed for 2 years.
Decent building offers good value.
Building is decent overall. Certainly has its quirks and the management company could be better. The reviews online calling this place horrible are exaggerating (and we are very particular).
Biggest issues are: some (but tolerable) noise from Comcast building construction next door, arcane process for package intake (manually tracked by security staff), and horrible lease terms.
Overall though, area is nice, apartment is larger than if you were in Rittenhouse square, but still close enough for social activities / food, appliances are new, and lots of natural sunlight.
