Central High Apartments

330 West Colfax Avenue, South Bend, IN 46616
% Recommended
City Average

While still a relatively new tenant of Central High, I feel I can shed some light on the current condition of the complex, and right now, the word that comes to mind is "transitional." There are pros and cons, but having… Full Review ▶


When I moved into Central High Apartments, I was incredibly impressed with the building (which is why I initially came in). The manager I met with a nice older gentleman. He showed me a one bedroom apartment that I was impressed… Full Review ▶


I had the same experience as the person from the previous comment (belkin). I really enjoyed my apartment, (minus the occasional run-ins with some of the downtown weirdos). I lived there mostly before they sold to forum, and before that I… Full Review ▶


I originally wanted to start this post off with a headline in all cap letters saying "warning do not rent here!!," but logic got the better of me. Instead I am going to tell you the truth about my own personal… Full Review ▶


I will say that for me the lack of communication from the managers in regard to what changes will be made, and what to expect of the future lease terms to current residents is very poor business. I've continuously been told… Full Review ▶


I have lived at Stephenson Mills Lofts for over two years now. I just LOVE it here!!! My favorite thing about living here has to be the unique units and the great amount of space. I love my neighbors and the… Full Review ▶


Sadly Central High is going through a very delicate crisis, and definitely it is not a good moment to move into this building. None is denying there were problems during the previous management. However, when the new company took over, new… Full Review ▶


I moved into Central High with my Girlfriend about a month ago. We were looking for something interesting and close to both of our works. The apartments in central high are open and interesting. Every apartment seems different and has nice… Full Review ▶


Like many other current residents, I will need to leave Central High Apartments as soon as my current lease expires because of the increase in the rent and the new utility charges. In particular, the fact that the new management will… Full Review ▶


I love this place and I am shocked to see so many blaming the problems on new management. They have been here only 2 months, change takes time and upgrades take time. I have faced a rental increase the same as… Full Review ▶


I like Central High Apartments, but the new administration is really awful. As everyone knows, they are increasing our rents in an unreasonable way. Downtown SB is still a poor area, sometimes unsafe, and even boring. We have very few attractions… Full Review ▶


Living at Central High has been a wonderful experience... until the new management group came strutting in (in her 5 inch heels and all black power-suit). Rent is increasing on a per-apartment basis to meet "market prices." Ours will go up… Full Review ▶


I would NEVER recommend living here to anyone, unless I do not like them. I have been living at Central High for several years, and may be forced to move out due to the new management telling us that what we… Full Review ▶


Until a few weeks ago, the mix of people in this building formed a wonderful and vibrant mixed income community. In March, a new company called Forum Real Estate, headquartered in Colorado, purchased the property. This week, their new management slipped… Full Review ▶


I have lived in Stephenson Mills loft apartments for just over a year now. From day one, I have enjoyed basically every aspect of the experience! I moved to South Bend from the Atlanta and I can honestly say had I… Full Review ▶


Horrible staff and maintenance! Full Review ▶


I actually lived in Stevenson Mills, which is an offshoot of Central High Apartments, and is located right down Colfax from them. They are managed by the same "team," and since Stephenson Mills has no profile on Apartment Ratings.com, I feel… Full Review ▶


I lived here from August 2007 to August 2009. My first apartment in the building was a studio/loft on the 3rd floor. It was small but adequate. My neighbors were _awful_, however. Management did not address my complaints for months and… Full Review ▶


I lived in a house for 13 years, this is my first apartment and it is great. I love the service of having someone else worry with problems and knowing I have someone to contact when things are needed to be… Full Review ▶


I have lived here a few years now and although management has finally improved, there is still quite a bit that has not. There is nothing here. well we do have laundry rooms i guess. I think there is 1 bench… Full Review ▶


The apartments and buildings are not that bad. But the people that own and run the place are horrible. The two women that managed before were so helpful and easy to get ahold of, a few months before I moved out… Full Review ▶


I loved my apartment and it makes me really sad to say this but I would not live there again because the management is TERRIBLE. Not only are they horrible business people, but they are rude, unintelligent thieves. They are never… Full Review ▶


There is only one good thing I can say about Central High, and that's that the apartments are very uniquely set up inside. I enjoyed the space inside the apartment as well as the amazingly large windows. Some problems: 1) The… Full Review ▶


You should move here if you like ancient buildings with lead paint, office personnel that can't follow instructions to save their life, windows that won't open and inconveniences galore. Otherwise, find somewhere else. Full Review ▶


I couldn't agree more! I have lived here for a little over a year and hope to stay for years to come. My apartment is HUGE, with tons of closet space. It's like a house! The fact that heat is paid… Full Review ▶


I LOVE my apartment!! One of the best things about it is the giant chalkboard, since it was an old classroom. I always get compliments when visitors come by and they are pleasantly surprised how nice it is. Despite the number… Full Review ▶


The Good:
The most tasteful, unique, and eclectic apartments in the city. Units vary. Many have unique fixtures such as skylights, large windows, hardwood floors that used to be the basketball gym, chalkboards, high ceilings, etc.

Location is convenient to the… Full Review ▶
