Small living space, ample storage
Small living space, ample storage. Management is okay. Location is really convenient. Pricing is reasonable
Great neighborhood ruined by mice.
The neighborhood is great. The management is okay. They are responsive but you have to push them to get things done. The main issue I have had is mice in the apartment. Which some may say is part of the deal with a walk up apartment in philly but was upsetting. SRS did start bringing a pest control company but only after I pointed out that pest control was listed in their responsibilities in the lease. The apartment was also advertised as 200 sq ft larger than it actually is.
Perfect for me right now
I live in a 2 bed 1 bath with a roommate. The place is old and charming. Has really high ceilings and pretty large rooms. The only downside is that the kitchen is down the hall from the living room so you can’t hang out and cook at the same time. Because it’s old temperature control can be tough but we’ve been fine. As a med student I’m a bit far from HUP by foot but I bike everyday (only 12 minutes) which I love.
Great location - poorly designed apartment
2028 Rittenhouse is a hidden gem. There are limited 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom options near Rittenhouse that are reasonably priced and modern so I was really lucky to find 2028. It's a block away from the Square and the majority of the renters in the building are Wharton/UPenn students. It's a fairly small complex, maybe ~10 3 bedroom apartments, so there aren't any fancy building amenities, but the apartments themselves are really nice. The rooms are on the smaller end, but it was still a fantastic deal and a great place to live.
Nice 3 bedroom option
Great location, newly renovated apartments, and solid management. 2028 Rittenhouse was much nicer than the other 3 bedroom options I looked at near Rittenhouse. The majority were really old apartments so I was pleasantly surprised that I could find a modern 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment for close to $4,000.
Good 1br apt at 16th/Spruce
Overall a good 1br in a relatively quiet brownstone building. W/D in unit.
Apartment had some issues with water drainage / leakage but management intervened to resolve the problem within a few days. No major complaints otherwise. Living room is a bit small but the bathroom is spacious and there is a good-sized closet in the bedroom (though none in the kitchen).
Kitchen has decent counter space, but could use a bit more (and a few more cabinets) if you cook a lot. Stove/oven are electric. Fridge opens the wrong way (towards a wall) which is odd - not sure why.
Location is great - not too far from Rittenhouse Sq, one block from the Kimmel Center, close to Center City amenities (shops, restaurants, etc.) 24h CVS and bars close by so there's always foot traffic late at night (unusual for Spruce St). A bit far from Trader Joe's / full-service grocery stores and a ~40min walk to the Penn campus.
No real amenities to speak of, but parking is available.
Apt is nice, new appliances, high ceilings. Have had minor maintenance issues and a few mice, SRS is usually but not always responsive
SERIOUS MOUSE PROBLEM
it won't go away. the exterminator has come more than 4 times and we once caught 5 mice in a week. we also found an old decaying mouse that had been caught before we moved in so this is a serious problem.
SRS is not great; would give them a 1 in terms of management companies.
Our (wharton) neighbor moved out because there was a weird smell and they had to bring an environmental report person to check it and they told them the situation was not good. SRS has still not given us the environmental report.
Great brownstone/walk-up for roommates in ideal location
301 South 20th is in a great location just south of Rittenhouse Square. The unit we have is spacious and has nice finishes (modern kitchens though the bathrooms are a bit dated). The amount of space for the price is great and our unit works out incredibly well for roommates. That said, the actual hallways of the building are not particularly impressive, the keyed entry on the front of the property could be better (obviously a panel would be ideal), and trash is left in front of the property on 20th rather than in a trash room, which isn't great. In addition, you can definitely get some noise from 20th street, though it's not as bad as it could be. Management has been very responsive to any issues that come up.
Great property for roommates but some growing pains
2028 is in a wonderful location and has great arrangements for roommates. The finishes in the unit are great and the value relative to other options in Rittenhouse Square is great. There are no common amenities (which is as expected). Because the property is new there have been some growing pains, though management has generally been responsive to problems, though they have been somewhat frequent. In addition, the walls are a bit thin and common storage space is minimal, though the closets in the rooms are decent sized. Separately, the front door access system is nice so that you can still receive packages when you're out (it connects to your cell phone).
- Realtors are very unresponsive to requests. Also in responding to requests, they sometimes enter the apartment for maintenance without notice and don't leave a maintenance slip.
- Realtors are still fixing up things in the complex although it was said to be ready by our move in time.
- There are no drawers in the kitchen for utensils and there is no closet space outside of bedrooms
- One bedrooms closes space is cut in half by a random wall.
3 bed, 3 Bath at 2028 Rittenhouse
A great investment opportunity for the developers on your behalf.
4 Bed/Bath Near Rittenhouse
Spacious 4 bed/4 bath in the heart of rittenhouse. Small building with mostly students creates lively atmosphere.

Large bedrooms each with private bath and ample closet space.
3 Bedroom next to Rittenhouse
Okay Apartment - good location, brand new building, and good value, but the building itself is a work in progress. It looks like most of the kinks have been ironed out at this point, but there were a few issues in the first couple of months.
