Service department is very weak. You lose your air conditioning October 1st and very few windows open. And they only open slightly. No window screens so you get insects flying in. You pay more than $3000 to sweat through the month. Other than those two things it is a great area to live. The building is kept nice. Although something tells me once it is fully renovated and leased maybe they will not keep it as clean. The amenities and conveniences are great. But because of the first two things I'm not renewing and I only work 1 block away ... Read More at aimco

The Sterling rooftop is unbeatable. Nothing like it exists elsewhere in Philly and by far it is the reason I live here. The huge apartment size, easy walking distance to everything, personable front desk staff, and pretty decent gym are just added bonuses! I would recommend this apartment building to all of my friends. Read More at Google Plus Local

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.

As a recent new resident at The Sterling Apartment Homes I have been most impressed with the staff and their readiness to assist.

Having the staff exceed my expectations was a bonus and only helped to solidify the fact that I made the right decision in choosing The Sterling. ... Read More at aimco

The Sterling is in a great location and my apartment is spacious and has an excellent view of the city. The leasing office staff, concierge, and maintenance personnel are all extremely friendly and responsive. However, I can not overlook the problems that the ongoing renovations have caused. It is very common to hear complaints from the residents and rightfully so of multiple water/electricity outages, congested elevators (when all 4 are operational which is rare), the pool/gym area was closed for the entire summer this year, and the list goes on. While this is no fault of the staff's it is quite apparent that AIMCO does not care about the current residents, some of whom have been living here for over 30 years! Once your floor is selected for renovation your lease is automatically terminated. You are offered an option to move to a different floor or move out completely wit ... Read More at aimco
