What can be said about this building, aside from what has already been said?

Work was done on these apartments last year - not to renovate of course, but to install new piping. How was this done you ask? By drilling (multiple) holes through the floor and ceiling of our bathroom and kitchen of course!

In particular the walls in the bathroom were ripped open to route the PEX piping through the walls. In the process of doing so, our bathroom cabinet was torn down, and part of our window frame removed. The cabinet was never replaced (after promising to do so), and the window frame was never repaired (again, after promising to do so), leading to a MASSIVE mold infestation from the moldy insulation that seemly permeates the walls of this entire building (as there are no air vents or ducting of any kind).

As described by one of the other reviewers, the porch is not structurally sound, and I expect for it to be declared unsafe soon, as much of the foundation is rotting and the brick crumbling, and it looks as though it could collapse at any moment.

I have been here for a few years now (with this current year to be my last, as I've had enough of this place), and I have yet to see the caretaker ever clean the floors in the lobby, the stairs, or do anything at all for that matter. Snow is not shoveled, nor grass cut for extended periods of time. Ice stalactites form on the eavestroughs in the winter, as the drainage/downspouts are not close to being adequate for the pitch and size of the roof on the building.

As others have said, the landlord and caretakers play the blame game, and have you running around in circles, with no one wanting to take responsibility.

Madness.

Lived here with some friends for a few years. We picked it strictly because of size (huge!), location (perfect!) and price (cheap for how large it is!). Even though our suite needed some touch-ups (like the porch windows, which were somewhat broken), we agreed to take it as is because we needed it right away. We thought, "Whatever, it's just a porch! We'll only use it in the summer anyway!"

It wasn't until after we moved in that we realized the window frames were completely 100% rotten, as was most of the porch. The drainpipes on the roof of the building are bent and they drip water, or snow melt right on to the wooden window ledges and frames of the porch. Over the years, they've completely rotted. Then, the drywall on the bathroom ceiling started flaking away...but, being young 20-somethings, we just overlooked these things when we agreed to lease it.

Anything that broke or needed fixing AFTER we moved in was pretty much ignored. We called the caretaker once about a leaky faucet. When he finally came up to look at it, he fixed it in a couple of minutes. However, once he left, I realized that by "fixing" it, he had just turned the tap off so tightly that I could barely turn it back on, and once I did, it would leak again. Completely useless. (Although kind of hilarious!)

It's one of those buildings that is so unique and has SO MUCH POTENTIAL, but apparently the owners don't care at all about it because the entire building is slowly deteriorating. And that's CRAZY, because if you think about how much money a building like that could make in Corydon Village if it were properly renovated and maintained, it's astonishing that they would let it fall apart.

Last but not least, the noise factor. When we moved in, we were told by the old caretaker that it was a building full of young people and that people liked to have parties sometimes. We knew the building would be noisy when we moved in, so it's never bothered us. Having said that, I'm not sure if the building itself is really noisy (i.e., very creaky floors, etc.) or if it was just the crazy people that lived above us who would have all-night parties. It could go either way. It never bothered us, but I could definitely understand how it would drive others insane.

These apartments are absolutely gorgeous.....our suite is huge!!! Unfortunately, the management does not care about them. We cannot get anything done work wise if something needs fixing. They finally came and did some work on our bathroom last year but didn't quite finish.....it's still unfinished! I call the caretaker and he tells me that he no longer does the maintenance work for the building and then I call the landlord and they tell me to call the caretaker and they assure me he still does the work for the building. I don't know what to think. The building is poorly maintained....lots of noise and parties. It is such a shame because the interiors are so beautiful. But the rent is very reasonable, considering the size and location.
