Covid Safe tours
We care about your safety. During the COVID pandemic, in-person showings may be difficult due to social distancing guidelines and travel restrictions. That’s why we created COVID-safe virtual tours.

I work at University of Pennsylvania and because of that this apartment is very convenient for us. It takes about ten or fifteen minutes to get there walking.
The property is very close to public transportation, University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University which really opened us to be able to feel like this is our home.
I am currently a doctorate student at PENN and this has honestly been perfect for me being in University city as it’s only a six minute or seven minute walk maximum to the metro station and maybe twelve fifteen minutes to get me to campus so it’s very convenient in that regard.
I think my favorite thing about living here is probably be the location. Its close to literally almost everything and you can get to anywhere in Philly in about fifteen to twenty minutes.
I am very happy living here and I’m hoping that other people can find this as a second home as I have.
Hey guys my name is Hilary and I’m Katerina and we live on Wiota St through REDBLOCK REALTY. All the appliances are brand new and we LOVE our fridge washer dryer, dishwasher and all of the appliances are brand new!
I was searching for a one bedroom apartment and I am SO happy that I found this building because it has been the perfect fit for me! I love my apartment. The apartment is modern and spacious. Every neighbor I have encountered has been friendly (college students and young professionals) and I have 0 noise complaints for any of the other tenants. Overall an excellent place for students. Safe and convenient location, quiet, and updated apartments.
437 N 40th st apartments are awesome. The building itself has an old look with brand new interior. The kitchens, bathrooms, and apartments were totally renovated a year ago and make for a very nice looking and feeling apartment. The gym, study area, and roof top deck are also huge benefits to living here.
Moved in and am loving the building and the management company. Super convenient to everything and a great value for the features at the cost.
