The utilities are marked up by a billing company called NWP. This will almost triple your electric bill and double your water bill. You can't opt out and go directly to PECO, the city water utility (WRB) or any alternate supplier. Electric At 1000 kwh, you… See More

Overall happy with my apartment to help me feel comfortable with the city after moving from the suburbs.<br><br>Likes and Dislikes: The apartment building is centrally located in center city and walking distance to any place in center city. Only downside is the rent is expensive. See More

Overall, great living experience<br><br>Likes and Dislikes: Although the front desk staff is very friendly, they are very inconsistent with their security. Sometimes people have to sign in, sometimes they don't. Also while it's nice that they let people into the building, I've had several visitors and… See More

Rent at your own risk. When you visit pay attention to the cleanliness and condition of the building on floors other than the ones the leasing office shows you. Ask tenants who live in the building their thoughts on the property... There are much better properties… See More

I would not recommend the commonwealth under any circumstances. Amongst the many issues that have been experienced include excessively marked up hallways, 30 day maintenance response times, heating issues, etc. Management is completely unresponsive and seems under staffed. Given what they charge there are much better… See More

Great though a little pricy. The only things that really need to be changed are the location or choice of parking garage. The steep and tiny drive between floors is steep and unmanageable for many vehicles, especially any the size of the van. See More

Cons: New management has poor communication skills and employs unacceptable business practice. Does not respond to messages promptly. Provided unserviced emergency phone number! Horribly dirty neighborhood. Except for… See More
