Recent Bozzuto Management reviews
I have really enjoyed living in my complex. There's a front desk that's open from 9-9 most days and they are super friendly. I have yet to request maintenance so I don't know how efficient they are at fixing things. My apartment is a 2 BR w/ Den, but we were able to get a door installed to turn it into a 3 bed 2 bath.
Also, everyone has a dog and they're super cute.
Spacious apartment in a vibrant neighborhood
I like my apartment very much for its decent amenities and vibrant neighborhood. It has a tall ceiling, the windows in the living room are long and large, allowing much of the sunshine inside, and is quote spacious. There is a gym and a media centre. The neighborhood is quite away, say, from the Wharton bubble but it is close to a lot of really nice cafés and restaurants that I enjoy very much.
Fine for a few years
Great location and amenities. The unit appliances / finishes are ALL as cheap as money can buy with sloppy installation.
Close to school
The primary reason I rented here was because of the quick walk to school, and my unit was less expensive then the availability at Domus. The building is great. It's very secure with a front desk attendant at all times, and requires a FOB to enter and to take the elevator.
There is tons of study space, I mostly study on the second floor which has tables, chairs, rooms, and a coffee machine.
The units are clean and new, and everything works great. I have no complaints about living here. Maintenance is great, and the staff is extremely friendly.
Solid Apartment Building
1500 Locust is a solid rental apartment building for students. Most of the apartments are recently renovated and have access to numerous amenities (e.g., gym, pool, rec room, front desk services), all for a reasonable rent (utilities are not expensive either). Frequent renovation work can be an inconvenience, but it beats living in a run down apartment building.
Spacious, comfortable apartments. Great value.
1500 Locust is a great value. While the style is slightly outdated, the amenities and management are excellent. The walk to school is a few minutes longer than other properties, but you are also closer to restaurants and bars in downtown Philly.
Living at 1500 Locust
Once you put pressure on management, you can get your way. Otherwise the building is particularly old, with very poor appliances and not the friendliest of staff. Hence, the experience/price ratio is quite low.
Great place to live
Very spacious apartment with tons of storage space and large balcony. Nice amenities including rooftop gym, pool, and outdoor space. Fairly strict with pets and slow elevators.
Best maintenance guy ever (Terez) but decent overall
Great S/W corner unit, about 620 sqft with tons of light. Building was no frills or common amenities when we signed (May '15), so rate was good ($1,575) and we signed for 22 months, locking in a 3% rent increase for months 13-22. Good thing because some other tenants got hit with as much as 80% rent hike upon request to renew - potentially just to clear them out of the building though. They just installed a gym and common area in the basement so they'll probably hike rates.
Great cozy place to live
Newly finished apartments with new ameneties; other facilities are still being set up (gym, common area etc)
Management is super helpful and responsive
Large rooms, excellent management. The lobby is under renovations right now (should be done in January 2017).
The Republic (AKA 1930 Chestnut) has been a wonderful place to live. I've been here for 2 years and the building has gotten steadily better since I've moved here. Bozzuto has maanged the building MUCH better than Turchi, and the renovations have been beautiful. They just opened up the fitness center and the lounge which are on par with other Wharton buildings like 2116 Chestnut. The doormen are also incredibly nice.
Great place, large apartments, reasonable price compared to alternatives
The apartments are very spacious and the building has great facilities like a nice rooftop gym, indoor pool and lounge area. The building maintenance is very responsive - take care of every matter usually within 24-48 hours (including changing appliances like a washing machine or dish washer). For Wharton students, it's an extra couple of blocks walk but totally worth it if you want to live alone at a reasonable price.
Higher rent for okay apt.
New management is better than previous management. Newly renovated apartments are fairly nice, but 15-85% increase in rent from before (improvements are definitely not 85% rent-increase worth). Extra charges for hot water, sewer, electricity, and pets. Currently, new rent reflects amenities that are unfinished.
Great Location for School
I live here and go to school and everything has worked out well since starting school. Things are quiet and I never have to worry about not being able to study at home, even with my noisy pets and spouse. They always have something to do since we are close to everything we could ask for. I love this aspect of living here. In addition, if we want to go somewhere new, we are close to public transportation.
