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
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!!
Super convenient for trolly and literally center city
Fair price, perfect location, quiet
Great layout, clean, responsive management
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.
The building is good
Great responsive management in a new building at a great location
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!
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
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
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.
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.
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.
I have lived here for 2 years and it’s quiet, and maintenance always comes within 24hrs to fix any issues. Great place!
Close to public transportation with great views! A bit overpriced compared to surrounding area
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.
Love The Avenir
Good facility, gym and security, but inconvenient to social with the Wharton crowd due to the distance
Worth the Price
Avenir is a great apartment complex, definitely pricy, but worth it.
