That's pretty much in the heart of West Philly. It's definitely not close enough to the University City to be affected by Penn's gentrification.

If you want to benefit from Penn's influence, then IMO you will want to focus on areas bounded by Locust to the north, 50th Street to the west, and Springfield Avenue to the south.

What about going towards Chestnut and Market? I noticed that you can go a bit more north the closer you get to the University. I was walking around Walnut from 40 - 49 Streets and it didn't seem terrible.

Walnut may not be too bad in the low 40's. There are certainly some nice establishments to visit. I would only recommend anything past 43rd or 44th to those on tight budgets who are accustomed to imperfect environments. I wouldn't recommend anything on Market or Chestnut past 40th for similar reasons.
