Recent Post Brothers Real Estate reviews
I moved to Philadelphia from Maryland for work and was looking for a place to accommodate my move and that was also pet friendly. I found Presidential City and thought it was the perfect fit. It was a large complex with an incredible pool club and fitness center, parking, and all brand-new modern apartments. The selling point for me was the convenience of having a safe dog park on site and plenty of greenery. I couldn't find a comparable apartment complex offering all these amenities. It's been almost half a year, but hopefully it continues to be a great experience.
Spacious and comfortable in West Philly
My experience at Garden Court Plaza has been very nice so far. The apartment is in a building with 13 floors and is pet friendly (for a small monthly fee). There is a dog park in the back as well. The apartment itself is old-appearing but well maintained. I have found that the maintenance workers respond within a day or so and do a good job of fixing any problems that arise. The water pressure is always good and I have never had an issue with hot water. There is an air conditioner in each room. Also, there is ample closet space- I even have my bike in a closet! The laundry room is shared by the whole building and just got redone, so we do not have to pay to use the machines anymore. The first floor also has a lounge area with WiFi and a grand piano that anyone can play. They are building a gym, but I am disappointed with the amount of progress that has been made so far. I feel very safe in the apartment and the receptionists who sit in the lobby are very friendly and receive all of my packages. I don’t have a car in Philadelphia, but there is a parking lot for use at the cost of $100 per month. There are not a lot of bugs in the apartment, which is also a plus. One occasional problem is that the elevators are slow and tend to break down often, but they are usually fixed within a few days. The location in West Philly is around a 25 minute walk to school and a 12 minute bike ride. The nearest grocery store is around a 15 minute walk. I like that the location is more residential with wide streets, but it does not have as many stores and restaurants as center city or graduate hospital, although there are a few nearby. Overall I have had a good experience!
Laundry, Bike, Gym
Overall this is a fine apartment building. Laundry machines, bike storage, and very small gym in the basement. Management is pretty responsive. Perfect location to walk to all hospitals and school, and also right on the 21/42 bus line. Close to restaurants, entertainment, and grocery store. However, old building that tends to have elevator malfunctions, power outages, and plumbing problems. The “kitchens” are tiny and appliances are not great. No central air so window ACs are a must, and no washing machine. Parking is problematic. Expensive for one person, very reasonable for a couple. The building only has studios and 1bdrms.
Awesome community for married people or couples with dogs.
Great location and value.
Location: Excellent. Right across from 2401 Walnut, so great for Wharton students. Close to campus if walking and directly across the street from the 21, the bus that barrels you down Walnut to get to Huntsman. A few blocks from Trader Joe's and a new coffee shop opened up next door.
Amenities: New gym in basement - pretty standard, nothing special.
Apartment: Excellent value. Some completely renovated, others are a wreck, so check out your unit before you sign. Spacious given the building is from 1915. Thick walls help keep noise down from neighbors. Not a social building (which I like). No doorman, but can get packages delivered and left in lobby - camera is there, so no problem with receiving packages.
Management company: Sucks. Unresponsive, hoping to make a nickel off you. Be warned. The less you deal with them, the better, and you can simply enjoy your excellently located, spacious (if a tad old) apartment.
I've lived here for about a year now and really enjoy it; Presidential City is undergoing construction, but the renovations look amazing! I love that its a gated community, it makes me feel safe living by myself in a new city. Its also has immediate highway access and borders to a shopping mall with restaurants and cafes!
Cant say enough good things
We love living here. Its barely been a year but we will be renewing our lease when it's up. It's beautiful inside and the neighborhood is trendy but family friendly too. My sons daycare is nearby and my work is only a few blocks away. Highly recommend.
Nice Place- Bad Management
The complex is beautiful. The pool club and Gym are nice. BUT THEY LIE LIE LIE. Was told we got FREE valet parking- Nope- Not Free and not here. Told rent would only increase to 2%... NOPE 12.5%- There is not enough parking spaces for the people who live in one building nevermind four when they are all done- property Manager has changed three times now- The concierge staff is now Extremely rude and unprofessional. One of them wears really revealing clothes. Basketball players live here and think that they own the world because they play for the 6ers. THEY ARE RUDE.
Expensive place to live compared to the surrounding neighborhoods. Especially with the small room sizes. A bit flashy in appearance, but would rather have more space and pay less. I like the close proximity to Lincoln Drive for commuting, and the gated community. However, parking can be a nightmare at times and annoying as well when they don't do anything about illegal parking (i.e. parking on sidewalks, in the middle of the road, etc...) Overall, place is so-so, will be moving once lease is up.
Great Place to Live
I was a bit skeptical about apartment building living, but it has been great here. The building is very dog friendly, which was a major draw for me. There is a dog park on premises and a doggie day care in the basement. My unit is a good size, big windows and a lot of natural light with a nice view. Also, the pool, hot tub and basketball courts are awesome. The surrounding neighborhood isn't great, but it is right on the edge of the Wissahickon, which is great.
A quiet safe haven with beautiful views
What struck the most about this apartment was the loads of natural sunlight that comes through and the views. It overlooks the expansive Wisshickon Park. Overall very well maintained. Good construction, can almost never hear neighbors (up or sides). Love the pool area. Like the safety and 24hr concierge. The people are friendly.
I have no complaints so far. My only possible grouse is that the apartments are right at edge of to the not so safe, infamous Germantown neighborhood. So if you are walking around the neighborhood just need to be careful of a few streets.
So far our interactions with the management have also been pleasant and professional.
SMALL, NICE AMENITIES
The apartments are small, in fact some units smaller than advertised. Very nice unit features including huge windows. Great amenties and a very well maintained building. The maintenance and concierge employees are super nice. Management can be difficult to get responses from.
Nice apartment, with lots of amenities
Rittenhouse Hill apartments are pretty nice. Lots of amenities: gym, dog park, infinity pool, basketball court, hot tub, barbeque area. There's a lounge with free wifi, pool (billiards), and TV. Its very pet friendly, you see a lot of people walking their dogs around the facility. Its like a gated apartment, so they have an attendant that watches the car entrance, so its pretty secure. The train is like a 7 minute walk, which has been convenient for me because I take it when I need to go to the airport. Sometimes its hard to find a parking spot in the outside parking lot at night because it gets crowded, but you can avoid that by getting a reserved garage spot instead.
Presidential City Apartments
Presidential City Apartments is currently undergoing renovations so some of the towers are being completely gutted and being redone by Post Brothers. The renovated apartments are beautiful and the building is also under new management. When it's complete it will have a pool (no pool right now). There is plenty of parking available and it's close to major roads like 76 and 676 and route 1.
The apartment is great - very affordable for the area, perfect distance from school, hup, chop, Presby, va. The management has recently changed and my experience so far has not been great. However, they recently made some personnel changes which should help. the new company is upgrading a lot of things in the building and is also upgrading a lot of the apartments to include more amenities. they also allow cats and small dogs now.
