Rated 2 out of 5?by Cold Tenant Warning: No insulation
My family and I are living at Three Rivers currently, but unfortunately will move once our lease is up. The staff and neighbors are nice--friendly and accommodating, but the building is old and lacks insulation.
The electric bill was consistently almost $400 in the winter, and our two-bedroom apartment was 58 degrees most days. We asked other tenants, and everyone we talked to had extremely high electric bills. We called Indiana-Michigan Power to see if this was normal for the apartment we are staying in, and the costs for the last two years were similar to our experience, around $400 a month.
The apartment is cute and clean otherwise. We always have to take the elevator up to the floor because the stairs are locked for security reasons. If we had known what the apartments are like in the winter, we wouldn't have moved in, but are making the best of it during the summer--we have yet to have to turn on the air because the apartment is so breezy.
The trains and sirens (from the nearby fire department) are loud, but they have never prevented me from sleeping or woken me up, although my family has mentioned that their sleep has been affected by the noises on occasion. What wakes me up is the garbage truck that frequently empties the dumpsters below our apartment.
In summary, we expected a little better quality for the price we are paying. It is an old building with inefficient air/heating/windows/insulation, and we do not recommend based on our overall experience.

Rated 4 out of 5?by Nick Great option for downtown living
Really enjoyed my time at Three Rivers. They have a wonderful location with perfect views of downtown. Prices are reasonable. Other residents are courteous and very friendly. Though the building is getting old, it is well-kept. Jean Ann and her team are top-notch!
- Location (much of downtown is walkable) and convenient access from major streets
- Perfect views of downtown
- Amenities: Pool, marketplace, underground parking
- Top-notch staff
- Friendly residents
- Noise: You're right next to the railroad tracks running through downtown, which are quite noisy. That said, you get used to it fairly quick and learn to tune it out.
- Units are getting old. The building was built roughly half a century ago, and the units definitely show its age.
- Elevators. They're slow and break down frequently. I'd suggest living on a lower floor so you can take the stairs if need-be.

Anyone with a complaint about Three Rivers' maintenance staff in the grip of a brutal winter probably cannot be satisfied with anything. Dealing with feet instead of inches of snow, maintenance is out very early in bitter cold every morning clearing snow out of the parking lot and doing what they can to assure tenants' cars don't get snowbound and stay on the job through traditional business hours and, often, later. If I have to deal with one of the state's harshest winters in years, I am very grateful to be doing it at Three Rivers where I am confident that maintenance is there, always prompt, always professional, to help with whatever issue I might have. Sincerest gratitude and respect to our incredible staff here.

Downtown is a great place to live with all of the activities happening just a few blocks away. I love living here.
The office staff could improve their follow thru. They get busy and need reminded of things at times. However, they are more professional than other apartment complexes and are great to work with and it seems like they are always available and willing to help.
Don't worry about the noises. After your first month, you will sleep right through the city noises. And It is rare that I hear anyone above or below me.
The maintenance staff are fantastic, friendly and responsive. The pool is great, they even have lifeguards.
Most important point of all: I feel safe here.
