Diamond in the Rittenhouse Rough
I am moving to New York in May and I wish I could bring this apartment with me! I have had a great experience at The Townhouse and I would highly recommend it.
Management Company: They run a tight ship and have some strict rules around subletting and moving furniture but overall they are the nicest, most responsive and attentive management team I have encountered. Emails are answered and maintenance requests are handled within 24 hours. All staff are friendly and so far I haven't had any issues with building management.
Building: The building is beautiful. No fancy amenities like a common room or gym but there is laundry in the basement and a storage space that residents can use. Doorman are the sweetest people on earth. Also there are a good amount of Wharton people in the building which is convenient for coordinating ubers in the morning to campus.
Surroundings: A block away from rittenhouse lots of dining and nightlife in the area. As a female living alone, I always feel safe here - never had any issues in this area.
Overall this place is a great value for your money. My studio is 500 sq ft. and has a separate updated kitchen and dining area with breakfast bar as well as a walk in closet with lots of natural sunlight. If you are looking for an affordable doorman building in Rittenhouse - this is the place to be!
apartments in rittenhouse
Generally good. There isn't really a community. aka I am not friends with anyone in the building. However, close to all the great shops and things. Easy walk to school and work.
Things like the shower, the stove, and the heater have all broken within the year but the good thing is all I have to do is send an email and someone comes down to fix it right away.
Its too expensive though, and the rent goes up yearly.
Great option in Rittenhouse!
Apt is spacious for a studio, charming, and well-maintained.
No frills comfortable apartment
The building doesn't have any amenities to speak of but the management company is fantastic and the apartments are huge and (in my mind) gorgeous. Hardwood floors, new appliances in most kitchens and lots of natural light. It's a comfortable place to live and even the studios are quite large with a separate kitchen and closet area. The management company is also fantastic and extremely responsive. I've never waited longer than 24 hours for an issue to be fixed.
Love this building and how close it is to Rittenhouse. Apartments have hardwood floors and are really big! Lots of light and lots of character. Many of the apartments are newly renovated. They are slightly more expensive but definitely worth it if you can get one!
Very happy with the Townhouse
My husband and I have been very happy with our apartment at the Townhouse. The hardwood floors and natural lighting were big selling points for us. There are few amenities, but that lowers the price of the the apartments so it depends what you are looking for. There are doormen to take packages, etc. Maintenance has been responsive to problems in the apartment. Some apartments in the building are renovated with new appliances as well.
The Renovated Townhouse Apartments Are A++
I absolutely love my one bedroom (Unit A) apartment in The Townhouse. The unit is completely renovated and includes a beautiful kitchen with granite countertops, a disposal, dishwasher, built in microwave, etc. I also have my own stackable washer/dryer in my apartment. Not all of the apartments in the building have been renovated to this degree, but many of them have been, so be sure to inquire specifically. The location of the building is perfect for us. We are one block south of Rittenhouse and I enjoy the more neighborhood-y feel, compared to the more commercial vibe north of the park. There are no frills in this building (no gym, no roofdeck), but given the lower cost of rent compared to nearby buildings, I joined a local gym that has more amenities, anyway.
Good for price
The apartments are nice, they're a little older, some units have been updated and some have not. No dishwasher is a bummer. Laundry in the basement. Management company is very strict (e.g. book elevators way in advance for moving in or out). For a studio it is much bigger than a lot of other studios, have little breakfast nook and good closet space.
Happy with my choice -- nice apartment, upgraded units, lots of sunlight, and in a great location.
Great place for MBAs!
This building has been a great place to live. I love how close it is to the square and to area restaurants. It's nicely situated between the social scenes on both Chestnut and South street. There are a lot of Wharton students here too, which is nice when commuting to school. Management is very responsive and the apartments are a large size considering the cost.
Great space & doorman
My apartment is consistently rated by friends as one of the nicest apartments they have been to in Philly. I live in a renovated unit that is fairly affordable ($3750) for a 2 bedroom fully renovated apartment in a building with a doorman. I have hardwood floors / stainless steel appliances / great sunlight / its quiet even though on the first floor / great open layout. Plus my doorman is legit the best doorman in all of Philly!!! He is friends with everyone in the building and makes you feel safe and happy each day.
Downsides: No amenities at all, persistently RUDE manager (Susan) who manages the building and is an absolute nightmare to work with
Great bullding staff, large units with character
I've lived in a 500 sq ft studio at the Townhouse Apts for 1.5 years. Overall, I'm happy with the apartment. The layouts are extremely generous and we have hardwood floors, large windows, and wall mouldings. If you are looking for/used to a NEW apartment, this is NOT the building for you. While there are recently renovated units in the building, the building is old (old picture windows, radiators, etc). The building staff are excellent - from doormen to maintenance to management, everyone is very responsive, prompt and very nice. We had some issues with the bathroom (leak from above and water pressure issues), but the staff were able to fix it within 24 hours (especially on a weekday). Laundry is in the basement. A great location because it's right in Center City and on a quiet street. Good value considering excellence of staff.
Great location, Classy building
Friendly neighbors, very quiet, a good mix of families, young professionals, older folks, and students.
Best Value I Have Heard of in Prime location
This apartment is one block south of Rittenhouse Square and the rent is only around $1,300. It has a doorman as well. This compares to rent of $1,500+ in other buildings near Rittenhouse where the studios are smaller. The value comes from the age of the building - it has window AC units, no gym. However, it's in very good shape with extremely responsive management. No issues with bugs or rodents. Doormen are very friendly and helpful. The location near Spruce is near a ton of great bars and restaurants. It's also a very beautiful residential neighborhood. I would hesitate to live closer to Walnut where the streets are busier and less residential - it's just a little grimier farther north.
I would choose this place easily if I was starting over again at Wharton.
Close to park; try to get an updated unit!
Great location, right off the park and on Spruce, one of the cuter streets in the neighborhood. Doorman building feels safe and secure...although the doormen aren't that strict with visitors. Updated units are really nice. Excellent kitchens and bathrooms. Responsive management company. The location is worth the extra 5 minutes to class compared to people in buildings like Wanamaker or 2116. That said, sometimes I missed the camaraderie that other buildings tend to have. There aren't any amenities but I think the price reflects that, so it is fine.
