Sounds like someone doesn't pay their rent on time! Why else would you be bashing a place you call home. First I would like to respond to your negative statements then I will share my experience with Addison. Now by all means am I implying that this place is perfect because honestly everyone is going to have some sort of bad experience somewhere. But as a resident for 3 years I feel that I need to call you out on your comments because this is my home and I plan to stay here for a very long time. The first thing I want to talk about is your dumb statement about the water on the floor. Seriously just made yourself look like an idiot! Come on now, do you really think by spilling water on a floor that it is not supposed to soak into the floor and it must have been a LOT of water if it leaked to the person downstairs. Why don't you clean up the water when it spills and better yet start taking your baths actually IN your bath tub! Did you read your lease!? I did and it does state that there is lead base paint but only on the office outside siding. Any extra $$ add on's are also on the lease. These apartments are pretty old, I think where built in the 60's so yeah there is going to be issues and such. I myself am not a big fan of the old fixtures however I knew they would be in my apartment before I made the commitment! If you didn't like the way it looked then why did you even move here? My stove is pretty old but it works! As for your A/C unless you didn't tell the office staff...you live in an apartment and it CAN happen! Its called apartment living so maybe you should try looking into buying a house and then you can deal with your issues yourself and see that not everything is as easy. The office staff has always been friendly and if and when I have ever had an issue they will try to fix it. If you are having problems and unhappy maybe you should try talking to the staff and see what they can do to help, if they don't know these things are going on then how can they try and make things better for you!? As for me I have had issues yes, when I first moved in my heater stopped working and was freezing outside. The guy told me the heating company to install a new heater could not be there until Monday, this was Friday evening. Yes I was very upset however how is this their fault!? They did offer me a few floor heaters and even an empty apartment with working heat so that my family and I would be comfortable. Not 2 months later my hot water heater broke and leaked onto my floor and had to be replaced. I can keep on about all the things that has went wrong but I'm not because my point is that it's part of apartment living and you must realize that things can and will go wrong even in a house. I really like it here and love my apartment so I plan on staying here for a long time. If anyone is interested in moving here I would advise you to ask questions and make sure you know what you are signing rather than crying like a baby because they didn't hold your hand during the process of signing your lease. It is your responsibility not there's! Dont assume your stay is going to be perfect however they have a 24hr service guy that will come out at 3 in the morning if you have any emergency. For their sake I hope you DO NOT stay! Thanks
We've been here almost a year and we cannot wait for our lease to expire so we can leave. We've lived in different apartments in Evansville and this is by far the worst place that we feel compelled to let other people know about it. We have a 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment that's around 850 sq.ft. big. We moved in the summer. During the first couple of months that we were there, our electricity bill was over $300 even though me and my husband both work full time and our air is mostly off during the day time. It took forever to have someone look at our air conditioning unit and they keep on saying that they fixed it. A third party eventually came and had to formally request management to replace it with a new one since then one we had in our unit was no good. They replaced it eventually. But no apologies went to us or compensation for having to pay those ridiculous electric bills. There is lead paint outside the apartments, the appliances and fixtures are ancient, and the staff (except for one gal) are not knowledgeable, not helpful, and oftentimes rude. The floors are even uneven. We live in the 2nd floor and we can place a ball in one end of our living room and it'll roll towards the terrace doors. They have a laundry room with washers and dryers that haven't been checked and cleaned in ages and if you don't pick the right ones, your clothes will come out looking worse than before you washed them. If we spill some water over the tub, our downstairs neighbor's ceiling will leak, and don't be fooled with their seemingly low prices. A lot of extras are added on top of that. About $100 minimum. So if they quote you a price of $700, expect to pay $800 or more at the end of the month. Trust us, you'll be better off somewhere if you are looking for an apartment here in Evansville. We highly recommend Kimber Green. We were tenants there for 3years and we have nothing but good things to say about the place and the staff.
I moved into Addison Place when it was still called Shiloh Place for three reasons-- it was close to my college, they allowed my dog, and they paid for heat. The first year or so it was perfect for me, but the complex has recently gone down hill. Here is my interpretation of the pros and cons of living here. PROS: *Gas is paid. *Parking is never an issue. *The office staff is really, really friendly, as is the maintenance staff, at least to me. I have always really liked them. *The location is great, in my opinion. Schnucks is super close, as is a lot of the east side. *The dumpsters are conveniently located, so you never have to walk too far to throw away your trash. CONS: *Overall, this complex has completely gone downhill in this last year. Recently, a man tried to break into my apartment at 3 a.m. I called the cops, and six cop cars later, they found him and let him go since he didn't "actually get in." :( *There are so many people who solicit to you-- I've had strange men knock on my doors at all hours (I am a college girl) and it makes you feel very uncomfortable. *For my small apartment, my electric bill has shot up from $23 a month last year in summer to over $100 this year alone. I don't know if that is the complex's fault, but it is still irritating. *This apartment cannot be 660 square feet, as advertised. It is so small and cramped, and there is absolutely no storage. *There is no security in the building, so anyone can (and will) walk into your building and knock on your door at all hours. *My neighbors have been good for the most part (except for someone threatening to shoot someone else...), but there are always tons of people partying in the parking lot at night. *The police are here a lot more than they used to be. This place has really gone down in quality over the last year or so. Do I think that my apartment is worth what I pay for it? No, not at all. I am happy to say that, after the break-in attempt, I got over trying to be cheap and am moving to a much nicer apartment.
