Resident 2010 - 2014

9/20/2014

I've lived at Chablis long enough to see my share of diversity of neighbors and problems that are reocurring. The sad part is this place has a lot of potential but lacks an ON SITE manager to make sure FIVE buildings stay in check. As is, people do what they want. Which is dangerous when you have tons of kids, young adults, or people that throw way too parties. PROS: Easily the CHEAPEST apartment you will get in the area that has most utilities includes. When the apartment brats aren't screaming bloody murder outside, the apartment area can actually be quite pleasant and peaceful. Visually the apartments are very attractive from the outside. The laundry room and storage unit come in handy Management isn't as bad as another poster mentioned. CONS These apartments had a huge issue with bed bugs over a year ago. The former manager dealt with it pretty badly and a lot of tenants that had been here for years moved away. As of right now the problem seems to be solved, unless the bugs are just dormant. There are no noise ordinances for this apt complex. Which means people throw parties in the courtyard most sat.'s and even sun.'s throughout the spring/summer/fall. That means when you bust your butt all week, you can forget about kicking your fit up and unwinding. That's because you'll have to deal with the cheap neighbors who refuse to get a permit and go to the park, and instead subject you to every waking minute of their party planning and party doing. I've seen neighbors even rent tents, chairs, tables, even freaking DJS! We were still able to hear the DJ's speakers over the roar of the a/c, the tv, and two fans. ANNOYING. And worse, the next day there were beer bottles and plastic cups everywhere. Also Club Chablis also doubles as Chablis Daycare. I've counted sometimes 12 kids playing all hours (even after 10 at night) in the courtyard, screaming, yelling, crying, you name it. The parents hang out in groups and do nothing about their kids behavior. So again, if you're looking to enjoy the peacefulness of Chablis you can forget it. Another thing is the parking lot which is practically pitch black at night. I can understand a bright light may disturb the neighbors near the lot, but surely there can be something done? Sometimes coming home late from work I half run to my buildings door because it is just way too creepy. Another poster mentioned maintenance. This is 100% accurate. I myself have two appliances that need to be replaced as one is on its last leg and the other doesnt even work properly. Yet I know getting them replaced will never happen so I don't even bother. The laundry room in the basement of each building is nice, but theyre all very old and SMALL. So even with the room coming in handy, more often then not you'll find yourself STILL going to the laundrymat. Another post mentioned the neighbors around Lincoln and I assume Michael Ln. They are correct though, despite the racism in the remark. Addison itself lacks noise ordinances so you'll have to deal with the crap here and the crap around Chablis. FINAL REMARKS This apartment is good for a "right now" apartment. Or if you're looking to get out the city and find something in the suburbs until you could get something better. Its also good if youre looking to save money and youre hardly home, then the noise and appliance issues will never bother you. I myself will be moving next year sometime and I honestly can't wait. Until they have a manager on site to enforce rules and make sure the apartment is comfortable for EVERYONE (not just their friends with kids) and also look to make sure the inside of the apartments are are nice as the outside, this place will keep the same reputation it gained a few year ago.
