The building is well-maintained, clean and secure overall, and my apartment is spacious. The street noise in combination with the construction noise across the street have made it difficult to sleep at times. The apartment is a fifteen-minute bike ride to HUP and a ten-minute subway ride to PPMC, so the central location is extremely convenient. There's a door person who accepts packages and lets in guests, a bike room in the basement, a gym on the top floor and a party room available to rent. I feel like I'm getting a good value, and I'm happy with my experience over the past three years.
I have lived here for 2 years and it’s quiet, and maintenance always comes within 24hrs to fix any issues. Great place!
There have been problems with hot water but it usually gets fixed within a day, minor problems only take a few problems to get fixed. Have been responsive when we have problems. It is gated so it is secure.
Close to public transportation with great views! A bit overpriced compared to surrounding area
I love my apartment! It is a little pricey but has been worth it because of the amenities and location. I also never have problems with management and have become friends with the building staff.
Avenir is great. I had mediocre experiences my first couple of years with housing, but I am very happy in this complex I have lived in since August 2018. Management is great, there are new appliances, and it's located in a very central location. It is a 30 minute walk to school, but I enjoy the exercise, and the metro station is only a block away if the weather is inclement. The apartments are small and a bit pricy, but it is safe, there is 24 hour security, a sprinkler system, and if you watch the prices, you are generally able to apply to rent a space at a comparable price. The flats are also great because, though they are small, they have a ton of built in storage, so no need to invest in many furnishings. Also the building is very quiet. The people who live here are mostly young professionals, so if you prefer to study away from campus, there is no problem doing so here.
Good value and comfortable location
Good place if you want to stay close to stores and restaurants. Cons are that you are a little further away from Huntsman (consider biking, bus or trolley) and no cheap grocery store nearby.
Great building, amazing amenities
Building very modern, great amenities and I personally love the location (Although if you study at University City it is a little bit further away). Would definitely recommend.
Love The Avenir
Good facility, gym and security, but inconvenient to social with the Wharton crowd due to the distance
I enjoy living at the ICON. There's some construction noise going on behind the building, but north facing apartments mostly don't hear it. Sometimes annoyed by other street noise, but that's typical of any apartment in center city. Generally, amenities are top-notch and the apartment finishings are solid.
Worth the Price
Avenir is a great apartment complex, definitely pricy, but worth it.
So far my experience at the Icon has been amazing. I really enjoy that each unit has its own thermostat and individual ventilation system. The walls seem to be quite thick as we rarely hear our neighbors. I personally think we have some of the best views in the city and the roof is always a great place to bring guests.
Avenir is the best
