Alden Park is comprised of 3 buildings. I lived in the Cambridge building on the 4th floor while a 1-2yr med student at PCOM. My unit had an nice kitchen, large bathroom, a huge bedroom, and lots of windows throughout. The common areas in the building were always very clean and the staff was always very pleasant and prompt when called for any issues. I felt very safe in the building and walking to and from my car at night since the parking lot is gated and there is a parking attendent on duty 24/7 monitoring who comes in an out. My unit was about 900sqft and I paid $1045/month since I signed on during a manager's special. I felt it was worth the price for the saftey, space, and quiet no worries atmosphere I needed for studying. The grounds are very nice, there are 2 train stations close by to access downtown, it's about a 10 min drive to PCOM, walking distance to drexel med, walking distance to a grocery store, rite aid, and cleaners. Close to kelly drive, the wissahickon creek, and manayaunk. They do have a pool which is nice, and a fittness center but it's small and may not be able to serve as your gym, unless you only run on the treadmill and use light wieghts. My apartment had a dishwasher, washer, and drier in the unit as well and central heat and A/C which I controlled. I only moved out because I got married.
