Recent Rittenhouse Management Company reviews
management company is easy to work with; lots of amenities (my unit has a dish washer), clean washer/dryer (not in unit but in building). no major complaints. neighborhood is ideal for a Wharton student. many Wharton students in the building, which creates a nice community
Quiet and convenient
Great location close to Rittenhouse square and easy access to grocery stores. Relatively quiet building and corner without too much traffic. A few maintenance issues because some of the units are very old.
Arrived to Philly during pre-term without housing. Rented an Airbnb and spent few days looking for a good option.
I was looking for a renovated 1BR unit near Rittenhouse Square. I was not interested in frills (e.g. having gym or rooftop) and found the TownHouse. Not "social" in the sense that you have a BBQ every day in your building, but a lot of Wharton MBA students live here and other rooftops are only open during the summer so I don't think it's worth paying for it.
Building has doorman, well located and, depending the unit, have great apartments. Mine was a renovated unit with very ample spaces and clean.
Management in general is responsive in case you have any problems.
The townhouse is great value for money. I’m very happy with the building. There’s a great super, doormen, and the location is good. But since no one cares about what’s great, here’s what’s not so great:
Loud outside noises easily penetrate (depends on apartment location), management company is a pain to deal with, seemingly random and somewhat frequent water shutdowns and building work and radiators can make the building too hot (hard to control temp).
Nice but small
The apartment was recently renovated and everything is new. It is very nice, but the second bedroom is quite small and does not have much closet space. There is also not very much space for additional storage.
Loved Living Here
This building is fantastic. I loved the building as soon as I saw it - my only concern was that the google reviews weren't great. The issue was some construction a year or two ago that tenants weren't pleased with, but there's no construction currently and the building looks absolutely beautiful. Doorman are great, management is very efficient and responsive, and the apartments are huge for the amount of money you pay. Plus, the location is unbeatable - it's right by the park but on the south side, which is a little quieter/prettier than other popular Wharton areas (plus tons of students in this building). If you're looking for a building with tons of space and lots of charm (fireplace w mirrors, beautiful textured walls) this is it. Would highly recommend living here!
Well Laid Out Studio with Character and Friendly Doormen
Really well laid out studios - separated kitchen, eat-in nook, and an enormous walk-in closet / bathroom. Higher level floors (I'm on 8) have a great view of Philadelphia (towards the Schuykill). Period hardwood floors. Location cannot be beat. Doormen are friendly. Building doesn't have a gym but I opted for classes / gym membership instead. Not a popular building amongst Wharton students but it's definitely overlooked - there are 30+ Wharton people here!
I love the apartment. It is a very spacious 1 bedroom at a reasonable price. I have a southwest facing corner apartment, so the light and views are great. The location is perfect near Rittenhouse Square and near bus routes. The management and doormen are very responsive. All my maintenance requests have been handled in a very timely and professional manner. The management does like things to be done in particular ways though (e.g. you need to request day in advance when you can move in to get elevator access). It is an older building, so there aren't the amenities found in newer buildings, such as a pool, gym, social spaces. I don't have laundry or dishwasher in my unit (some units are newly renovated and have them but they are more expensive). There is laundry and bike storage in the basement.
Great value for money
Although the building is old and residential elevator is small, the building is well-maintained and room is spacious. I like the neighborhood: it's quiet and safe. The management is responsive and takes care of the problems well. The best part of the room is that we have a lot of sunlight.
Great location, quiet, amazing doormen. Refurbished apartments are really nice.
Not bad at all
The apartment and facilities are clean. I like the layout of the studios, It makes you feel as if you have more space than you do, with a large built in closet and a dining area that I use as an office. I haven't had any issues with noise. Very quiet with respect to outside noise and you can't hear your neighbors. The doormen are very helpful and friendly. Management is super quick to fix things - usually addresses issues same day. Location is pretty good, being right near Rittenhouse square.
Only things that I would reconsider for next time would be that there is no common area so all guests need to be hosted in my apartment. The laundry machines are coin operated so its a bit of a hassle to get quarters now and then to do laundry. The building is old so sometimes things don't work well. I had an incident in my apartment when there was a water leak and my ceiling collapsed due to the water collecting on top of it. This happened in the span of an hour, but the management came in right away to start cleaning and built up the ceiling while I was at school the next day.
If I were to do it again, I would probably live in the same place because the pros have seemed to outweigh the cons. The price is good. I would consider getting a 1 bedroom instead of a studio so that I can host more people.
The Townhouse apartments are in a great location you get a lot more space than nearby high rise apartments. The Renovated Units are a fantastic value. The doormen are outstanding and management and the maintenance team are always responsive and ready to help. Despite the renovations, the building itself is on the older end, but I haven't had any issues from that.
Building is old, which causes problems
I've had a bunch of issues this year -- cockroaches, a water leak that ruined my closet and has led to clothes lying everywhere in my apartment. Management is responsive, but not nice. I'm certainly not living here next year, and I will definitely be living in a much newer apartment building with more of a community and an included gym.
Phenomenal location and helpful staff
This is an older building but many of the units and common spaces have been re-done and look fresh. The location is great - right across the street from Metropolitan Bakery / Cafe and on the quieter (and nicer IMHO) part of Rittenhouse Square. The staff (doormen, management, repair) are all very responsive and helpful. What this building lacks in amenities it more than makes up for in how well run it is.
An older building so there have been some elevator/maintenance issues. But staff try to respond quickly and the location is amazing. I would live here again.
