Expect Zero Maintenance Service. Look for another apartment. Here you will get no service , if you are stuck with an apt with issues that require maint. good luck, you will never get it. Lots of other options close by for same or less price. Do not risk it by moving here, you will be sorry.
I live in a 1 bedroom upgrade. I currently live in a quiet building. I don't have complaints currently. I will come bad if any thing changes.
I have lived here for 2 and half years and the only bad thing I would have to say is if you live on the bottom apartment make sure the neighbors dog doesn't pee on the balcony above you while your are outside sitting on your patio!!. This is a very quiet area and I live on a river view which is really nice. The maintenance is slow to respond and you may have to make more than one phone call. The work out room always has equipment that doesn't work. But the trail is great to walk on.
Anyone looking for apartments in the Indy/Castleton area do yourself a favor and stay away from the Core Riverbend apartments. They are the worst place I have ever lived. ( Our oven has been broken for 3 weeks now and when I called to complain I found out they didn't even bother putting the work order in. They were suppose to clean our carpets and replace some carpet when we first moved in in April. It is now June and they just called me today (after I went off on a manager yesterday) to make an appointment to replace some carpet. (Not to clean the rest.) They don't even take care of their fitness area. Many of the machines are not plugged in and have no way to be able to be plugged in. Every time I have gone in the fitness area there is no sanitizer to clean the machines. It is all about appearances from the outside to this place. It is definitely not about keeping happy residents.
I've lived here since August and my building is usually quiet, but there are mostly singles living in my building with no children. The floors and walls are thin so you can hear the footsteps, dogs, and music/tv of the person above you. I live in a 1 bedroom with washer and dryer connections. The apartment itself is really cute, but I wouldn't pay more for it than I already am. Definitely check the comparables in the area and make sure you're paying the right rental price. I have an "upgraded" apartment with white cabinets and newer kitchen appliances. The street I live on well-lit and feels safe. I've seen other areas of the complex look run down and littered with trash when I've taken walks before. Definitely ask them to show you the EXACT apartment you will be moving into BEFORE you sign your lease. There is definitely a lack of communication among the leasing agents in the office. Keep track of who you talk to and on what dates because it seems like no one takes adequate notes there or records conversations with residents. At first, I was not impressed with maintenance. They seemed slow to respond (a full month for my garbage disposal) but have been excellent since my first problem. Emergencies are fixed same day (no heat, fridge not working, etc.) and lower priority items have about a 2-3 day turnaround. The guys are nice and seem to know what they're doing. I wouldn't call the place "pet friendly", they're more "pets allowed." A lot of dog owners are lazy about picking up after their pets and Riverbend only provides about two dog waste bag/receptacle areas per street. I don't think the salt that is used on the sidewalks during winter is pet-friendly, either. Also, this is not the apartment's fault so much as residents, but there are people in my building who smoke cigarettes in the common area when it's chilly outside. As a nonsmoker, I find the smell nauseating and it creeps into my first-floor apartment. There are signs posted for no smoking but not everyone pays attention... not all of the residents here are the most neighborly or conscientious of others.
