While the building is older and is not as modern as other apartments, you get to enjoy a unique living experience. There are currently construction and parking issues as of May 2021, but following completion, it is a perfect place to be in the center of the city, walking distance from anywhere you need to be. Shout out to Linda, who always treats my dog and myself with the upmost care.

Adrian the property manager and Pam the sales consultant are both wonderful people and very helpful. They always treat residents with the utmost respect. They both truly care about each of their residents and are always looking out for everyone's safety and well being. Adrian and Pam are both class acts and the Village Green Communities are very lucky to have them both. You can tell they love what they do and are extremely good at it. Even in difficult situations like those brought up by pandemic they have been more than accommodating and ensuring residents safety. Adrian and Pam are both kind and compassionate individuals who really shine at what they do.

I lived here for about 4 years; I loved it and I would have absolutely stayed probably forever if job circumstances hadn't changed. Linda who is kind of the overseer is the best; the office staff was always great. Loved this place.

Absolutely love the location of Stephenson Mills. It's convenient being in walking distance of restaurants, a boutique grocer (The Purple Porch) and the East Race trail. The most attractive aspects about the apartments are the high ceilings, open floor plans and great lighting, which was "a thing" for me having lived in dim apartments in the past. No apartment is 100% perfect but my experience overall has actually been positive. The entire staff is accommodating and kind, which is a huge plus. Parking is a bit crowded especially if you intend guests but the living space definitely makes up for it!

The best part of living in South Bend! We relocated to DTSB from Chicago and felt lucky to snag a two bed/two bath overlooking the East Race. The building provided us with excellent walking proximity to downtown and pleasant views from the large industrial windows. Exposed brick and wood laminate flooring gave our space a modern loft feel that would have cost double in Chicago. The building itself is over 150 years old so the HVAC has been retrofitted and works fine in all but the most extreme weather. No, you will not get your apartment to seventy degrees when it’s 10 below and no the windows are not thermally insulated. It’s just part of it. Appliances were gently used and worked fine but the water is a bit hard, so dishes and the dishwasher needed a little extra attention. The in unit washer/dryer closet was extremely convenient. Countertops are outdated and worn, but A minor detail all things considered. The grounds are nice but we’re nicer before the new Cascade residences went up. We loved that it is so Dog friendly, but many residents don’t curb their pets which ends up looking like you know what. if you have to walk around the building with your pet watch your step. The grounds are maintained, but basic. The parking area is congested and most of the street parking is taken up by people working across the street at the Commerce center. This is super annoying because the private parking is not enforced. I gave up caring after a while. In Chicago it wasn’t uncommon to have to walk many blocks for a space so All things considered parking was fine but annoying sometimes. The residents are nice but not necessarily friendly, but whatever. Strange neighbors for years never once said hello. Depending what floor or unit, it’s easy to hear neighbors. Was extremely annoying to have to listen to upstairs people having sex while we tried to sleep. Very loud, very annoying. Aside from occasional barking, a kid being loud or neighbor students having game day parties it was fairly quiet. You will hear the people next to you though. From day one Management was warm and accommodating. Adrian is a saint to do what she does at the property having to deal with everything and everyone’s issues. There was always prompt attention to anything that we needed done and the maintenance staff (Linda, James, and John) are some of the nicest people in the building. The cost of living is very fair for the space and location and utilities were nothing out of the ordinary. Higher in winter of course. All in all, it was a great experience living here and it would have been longer if we didn’t relocate out of state. Call Adrian and ask about their units! This is the most unique building/location in the city! Also, very much alive..unit 204 is haunted and there are spirits in the building! Overall excellent place to live!!

If you're looking for a place to stay, I definitely recommend!
