The Sterling Apartments has fantastic amenities that are a site to behold!

I have been here since April 2015 and I really enjoy the life in Sterling. The Staff is great and facilities (swimming pool, rooftop, gym room...) also. It's a perfect location to enjoy Philadelphia. I do not have any regret to have moved here. Sterling is definitively is great place to live.

I have been here since December 2014, so I have witnessed all the changes in the last couple of months. The new renovations are great and the staff always say "Hi" and "Good Morning" to me whenever I pass by them. The gym is very good considering that it's free. It has treadmills and bikes, some good machines, and some free weights (

User Review

Overall, we are pretty happy with The Sterling. I would give 4 stars when the construction is complete so 3 stars for now. The construction on updating the whole place has been the biggest challenge. You do hear it if they are redoing a floor within 2 on either side of you. They start sometimes before 8am (they aren't suppose to

User Review

Pros: Big floor plans, good closet space, new gym and pool. Package notification emails and web-based maintenance request portal work well. Cons: At least 1-2 elevators have been out of service for almost a year. This has caused a lot of inconvenience for residents who have to go to work or school on time!! It looks like 1 has been

User Review

Sterling apartments are really nice! I like the design inside the building, apartments and hallways. Cool pool and gym that are free for residents. Unfortunately for me the pool is closed early in the morning, so you can't swim before job(. Staff is great, always smiling! The only great minus for me is the absence of free parking f

User Review

The location, especially more recently, has been lively. As for the actual building, when things break they get fixed, and the staff is always polite and helpful. The fire alarms could go off less. And I have been here over a year and there is one elevator that I have never seen work. Overall, I've had a great experience.

User Review

The sterling is a great deal for the amount of space you get in the apartments, as well as the amenities. The rooftop pool, deck and gym are amazing assets to the building - it's definitely a selling point. The maintenance staff is very nice and helpful, and so are the leasing agents. The only downside to the Sterling is the ongoing

I enjoy living here so much that I moved back in a year later. I think you get a lot of square footage for your money and the location cannot be beat. However, the cockroach and elevator problems are real. They just don't bother me enough to live somewhere else.
