Resident · 2016 - 2017
The Icon is a beautiful recently renovated building in the heart of center city. The location and amenities are the best in town! 24-hour doorman service sweetens the deal. They are so friendly and helpful. The Icon roof deck, screening room, game room, gym, community kitchen, and other common spaces are barely ever occupied so my small one bedroom apt extends to what feels like a giant house. All these features come at a premium... on top of the very high rent, there is a flat rate annual amenity fee (not uncommon for buildings in the area). The apartment itself is gorgeous with great views of the city. The spatial planning is a bit of a puzzle. There's loads of dead space in the bathroom which could have been used for the closet. 99% of residents are not from Philadelphia so you won't get any sort of local experience here. Mostly grad students, professors, consultants, etc.
