Recent The Galman Group reviews
Nice but overpriced
Living at the Station at Manayunk has been mixed. The proximity to the Manayunk/Norristown Septa Regional Rail line is the best feature, only 15 steps out of my front door. The apartment is nice, but is overpriced. Although there is parking for residents, it can be difficult to find a spot during weekday evenings. Management is good and maintenance is completed in a timely manner.
Cool, modern apartment
I love my apartment! The interior is basically brand new and very modern. Black marble-like counter tops, black cabinets, and white appliances. The carpets are average soft texture and clean (gray colored). There is a pool with active lifeguard when open and it's not foggy or dirty except for the occasional bug or leaf. There is gated parking for residents (included in rent) and plenty of street space for guests. Management is around during normal business hours Mon-Fri and every other Saturday and the maintenance people are on-call for emergencies. Utilities and cable (provided by Comcast) is included in rent. The outside might not be the 'most luxurious-looking' but the inside makes up for it. The buses are within walking distance and take you all over Philadelphia and even to Plymouth Meeting Mall. The regional rail is a 5 minute drive and takes you to Center City in 15-20 minutes. Along Henry Ave and walking distance to Ridge Ave. It's a long walk from Main St. Manayunk but doable if you're dedicated - definitely close driving distance or cheap cab ride away. No regrets yet!
Great Apartment Building
I am more than happy with my apartment at the Dupont Towers. It was renovated 1 year ago and still looks brand new. I have a washer and dryer. You cannot hear the neighbors through the walls or ceiling. Parking is easy to find. Steven, the handy man, is nice and super attentive. Overall, I love my apartment and plan on living her for another year or 2 while i'm in school.
I have lived here for 4 years now and just signed a lease for my 5th year. The value is outstanding for the size. Maintenance and management are very responsive. My unit is not an updated unit but it's still very nice. New appliances, white walls tan carpet style. I'm happy to be living here!
New construction close to transit with poor management
The station at manayunk is a new construction with great finishes. The direct access to the Ivy Ridge Septa station is very convenient but also noisy at the same time. You sort of get used to the train noise but it is still very noticeable. Management has changed multiple times in the 1.5 years we've been here. Their responsiveness has declined considerably. I love the fact that the apartment is so close to the towpath and SRT trails.
The location next to SEPTA makes accessing center city very convenient but you do hear the trains. Only a short walk to bars and restaurants on Manayunk's Main Street. I enjoy living in a new building. Heating/cooling bill is very low. On the down side, we have had lots of electrical problems. The original contractors did a sloppy job.
The management changes every couple of months- some were good, some were bad. Now that construction is almost over it is better. No more noise until midnight and water always off. They still do odd things like "losing" everyones keys. They also sent us multiple eviction notices and then apologized each time- but the sent another the next month with a late fee. And then there were those 6 gas leaks one week.
