SLIDESHOW: The New University City Apartment Building That’s Better Than a Hotel
If you haven’t been to University City recently, let us offer you some advice: you need to – stat. It’s pretty amazing right now (what with its free movie nights, 79,000 square feet of new retail space, and a slew of trendy restaurants popping up left and right). Long characterized as the collegiate facet of West Philadelphia, University City has evolved in recent years, giving way to a ton of development. So it’s no surprise that the bustling ‘hood would invite an ultra-chic apartment building to join its ranks.
3737 Chestnut, a property managed by the renowned Bozzuto Management Company and developed by Radnor Property Group, is the answer to luxury living in University City. There, residents are treated to a bevy of hotel-worthy amenities including valet dry-cleaning, restaurant “room service” delivery and 24-hour concierge. Should a resident leave for the weekend, the residence also offers out-of-town services, like mail pickup and hold, package delivery and plant care.
The interiors of 3737 Chestnut resemble a boutique hotel, too, thanks to open floor plans, super-high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling picture windows, and porcelain, tile and marble accents throughout the units. Inside the generously sized kitchens, residents will find hardwood-style flooring, stainless steel appliances, wood cabinetry, marble countertops and moveable kitchen islands. There are also spacious walk-in closets and stackable Bosch washers and dryers.
Upstairs, residents and guests are invited to socialize in the rooftop lounge, which not only provides outstanding views of the city skyline, but also stunning landscaping and an outdoor grilling area. The downstairs boasts an Instagram-worthy terrace garden, a billiards and game room, an entertainment and media room with large LED TV, and an Internet café. The building is also outfitted with a state-of-the art fitness center with yoga studio, TV monitors and sound system.
At the end of the day, though, 3737 Chestnut emphasizes community. The management team regularly organizes happy hours, professional cooking demonstrations, fitness classes, special events and more for its residences.
