Good location, modern building with spacious rooms, but limited amenities
Pros: Modern building, great location, a lot of space for what you pay, 24/7 reception and package collection
Cons: Limited amenities (gym has no bathroom or wifi), blinds are not effective in keeping out sunlight (50% of the sunlight seeps through), limited cupboard space in unit, no garbage chute (maintenance has to manually remove garbage rooms from garbage room on every floor), kitchen sinks dont come with garbage disposals, liberal security policy

Almost no amenities
2040 Market Str. Review
Good Experience for 2 Years in B School
Overall, I've enjoyed living at 2040 for my two years in b-school. It is very close to the trolley stop, trader joe's, liquor store, etc and the 2 bedroom corner units are very spacious with floor to ceiling windows. A few issues we have had with the building are:
- AC/Heating unit sometimes will be broken for a few days in a row (terrible in the middle of summer or winter) and mgmt is slow to fix it
- You need a keyfob to get in and there isn't a streamlined way of letting guests up (the intercom system does not work to my knowledge)
- The appliances (washer/dryer, dishwasher, stove) seem cheap compared to what you would invest in yourself for a home
Best value for money, modern apartment near Rittenhouse Square
- Unbeatable value for money near Rittenhouse Square
- Very convenient location (across the road from Trader Joe's, the trolley, Fine Wine & Spirits in the building, 2 blocks from Target, plenty of good restaurants /bars within 5-10 minutes walk)
- Lots of natural sunlight (floor to ceiling windows), spacious floorplans, kitchens and bathrooms well maintained, modern feel
- Amenities are sufficient but nothing lavish (large deck on the sixth floor, gym has all the basic equipment I'd ever need)
- Great for pet owners (lots in the building)
- Security could be improved (e.g. card scan in lift)
Great value for amount of space compared with other apartment buildings in Center City/Rittenhouse. Good contingency of Wharton students but not as overwhelming as at other popular buildings. Management is generally responsive to complaints. Updated appliances is a plus. Location is ideal being right next to Trader Joe's and the subway. Temperature control is a minor issue.
Better Than Expected
Great apartment. As far East as Wharton students live, but not an issue. 30 minutes walk from campus. Management has been responsive since I got here. Gym is a nice addition. Some insulation problems with my unit, but overall good amenities and spacious floor plan.
Perfect location, slightly small apt (for the price)
Really love the apartment's location- it's right near TJs, the trolley on Market, the wine emporium, and only a 30 min walk from campus.
Our only issue is that our apartment is slightly smaller than others in the building, but the management is open to us moving to a bigger one once our lease is up.
Also- the fire alarm goes off very easily, which is a pain when you live on the top floor and have to walk down the stairs and out of the building in the cold!
Love 2040 Market St!
We have had a great experience at 2040 Market. We love our apartment--it is very spacious and gets great light. The outdoor area on the 6th floor is also great, and the gym is everything we need (treadmills, free weights, kettlebells, and even Peloton bikes). The people that work at the front-desk are very friendly and management and maintenance are responsive to any issues. I only give 9/10 for a few minor reasons: 1) we've had some issues with fuses blowing out when we are doing normal things (e.g. have the oven, the washing machine, and some lights on at the same time), 2) I do wish there was a common area like some other buildings have (2116 Chestnut or 1919 Market), but that's not a reason not to live here. Otherwise, fantastic place to live and highly recommend.
Despite some initial pains, 2040 is a very good building with excellent management
Overall, after having lived in 2040 for almost two year now, I think the building is really solid. The apartments are beautiful though some of the appliances aren't the best quality i.e. leaky sink, electric stoves and weaker than normal oven and strangely and there are no lights in the bedrooms. All of which is alright if you're aware of them going in. I really enjoy the spacious main area and the floor to ceiling windows. With that said, temperature control has been quite bad - we've had temperature issues both in the winter and summer, though the really bad issues were during the winter - we have had Saturdays and Sundays with almost no heat in 30 degree weather. With that said, management has made strides improving the temperature situation, which has improved markedly since I first moved in. I think this building has one of the best management teams I've ever worked with. Michael Blenk is incredibly responsive, sympathetic and follows through. He's an all-star.
Best value near Rittenhouse
Apartment is really big for a 1BR 1BA right on Market street and across the street from Trader Joes. Other apartments this size in this area go for up to 3k more per month, so this is great value. Has a balcony but not a super fancy common area, but that was never an important factor in our search. Gym is small but has pretty good equipment, most notably a Peloton machine. Also super dog friendly!
Largely management doesn't respond to utility issues
Largely management doesn't respond to utility issues; may take multiple attempts to resolve issues.
2040 Market Apartments Review
2040 Market Street is a gem!
The building is at a great location which an affordable rent. The management of the building is good in general, issues are solved relatively fast. It is not a new building and there is no doorman but they provide a package room solution which is convenient. Our apartment fits our needs and we are pleased with what we have.
