Safe. Convenient. Everything you need.

Express subway stop (spring garden) right to LKSOM is outside our doorstep. We can walk to center city/city hall in 10 minutes. Building is right on broad street which always has traffic and is relatively safe. Starbucks, food trucks, chinese takeout, all within 1 minute walking. Gym in the basement. Lounge at the top. Personal mail boxes. Apartments are solid. Only thing is that utilities can be a bit expensive but it is worth it.

Great Building! Highly Recommend

10 management rating Reviewed by on

Overall a great apartment! Right in the center of Center City it's location can't be beat for anyone knew to Philadelphia. Across from city hall with easy access to suburban station.

While the building is in a busy area the biggest benefit is how quiet it still is! Our apartment gets almost no noise (except for the rare motorcycle group). I believe the other apartments in the building are similar. The apartment is secure with a front desk person which is great with making sure you get your packages. Amenities are all new and updated. ONLY ISSUE is that the apartments don't have drawers in the kitchen (yes this is weird; an issue with the initial development).

The building is also dog friendly and the staff is always kind to our puppy. As far as taking your dog out we are 20 mins from a dog park, and Love Park and Dilworth Park are both right here for when you have to take your dog out regularly.

Staff is great! Very friendly, and always helpful with any issue. Management is also quick with any repair issues! Building has a gym upstairs and a lounge area.

Could not recommend more!!

Great layout, clean, responsive management

9 management rating Reviewed by on

Clean, modern apartment. Studio has a good layout for having such a small space. Management is very responsive, can sometimes hear neighbors but not much and not at night. Can hear street noises sometimes. Full kitchen but limited counter space.

Centralized Location Well Kept Property With Great Management

8 management rating Reviewed by on

The good: This apartment building is fairly new, the apartments are super nice and it seems like it was well constructed with better sound proofing than I've had in previous large complexes. The concierge service here is generally fantastic, they even came up to feed my cat one day when I was on 28 hour call and completely forget to feed her in the morning. Maintenance has been very responsive though I haven't had a lot of things go wrong. Management has also been responsive to concerns. I had some issues with a loud neighbor and this was addressed promptly. Unlike some places, the package pick up service in parcel lockers is included, which is nice. The gym is fairly large with a little outdoor terrace, I feel no need to buy a gym membership elsewhere. There are also really nice common areas on the 2nd floor and a rooftop deck that gives great views of the Delaware river. The location is fantastic, a bit far from Penn but literally in the middle of everything else (restaurants, bars, close to the shopping district, theater district, old city, Reading terminal, the Italian Market, grocery stores). It's about a 35 minute brisk walk to Penn's campus or a 10 minute bike ride. Bus lines also stop right outside (42 and 21) and you could technically get to the subway/trolley pretty easily. Also, bike parking is included and secure in the basement!

The bad: Lots of people here have dogs, which provides for great dog watching entertainment however there have been multiple times where I've stepped in dog pee or nearly stepped in dog poop because some residents apparently do not clean up after their pets. If you pick a north facing apartment, beware, since you'll be facing Fergies which over the summer was VERY loud despite excellent window sound proofing (I live in a west facing apartment and definitely would not not consider moving to a unit any further north because of the bars). I will say this place is pretty expensive for what you get, likely due to the premium location. Storage within apartments is limited though there is storage in the basement if you pay extra. Parking is nearby is VERY expensive. Also, there are in unit washer/dryers but the dryer doesn't work particularly well (washer is perfect), I think because it's not vented to the outside so it's a struggle to get my clothes completely dry (an even bigger struggle with sheets and towels). I had management look at this and was told "this is how it is".

In Summary: Overall I love it here but might be driven to move somewhere else to find more space for the price I'm paying here.

Great responsive management in a new building at a great location

10 management rating Reviewed by on

Overall, a great experience primarily because the management is very responsive and helpful, even with helping during COVID times. The building is also new (2013 I believe?), so all the appliances and cabinets are generally newer than what you see in some of the buildings around rittenhouse park. It is also very close to the septa station trolley. Door to door (from apartment to huntsman entrance) has averaged around 18 minutes. CVS and staples just across the street, sansom restaurants a couple of blocks away, and right near city hall. Great location overall!

Cons:

Can get noisy as it is a busy street (though not debilitatingly so for me, but I am not a light sleeper), and there is no outdoor rooftop, just an indoor penthouse lounge. Windows are also not the most expansive, so sunlight can be a little less than some other buildings, but again, the pros made up for it.

Love it here

10 management rating Reviewed by on

Management is great, apartment is newly renovated and very comfortable, location is 10/10. Even the smallest of studios is comfortable enough and, even though my windows face a wall, I somehow still get plenty of sunlight! My only complaint is that the windows don't have nets (when I asked about having some installed, I was told the windows are not compatible with nets) and, even if you don't mind opening them without them having netting, be prepared to be able to smell the fast food restaurants nearby. As someone who really likes to open windows for fresh air, this has been a major downside. However, I still rate this apartment very very highly and have been very happy here!

Great Building, Management, and Location

9 management rating Reviewed by on

I've really enjoyed living here. The location is excellent, the gym and work spaces are all you could ask for, and the apartments are very nice! The only downside is noise levels. It sometimes seems as though you are on the street with the level of traffic noises in my apartment, and I am on upper floor. With that being said, a noise machine has done wonders, and if you can live with a little bit extra noise, I highly recommend.
