The Post House in Downtown Evansville was intended to feature several elements of urban residential life under one roof — but circumstances necessitated a pivot.

Opened in 2020 by Indianapolis-based property management company Barrett and Stokely, Post House modified Evansville’s Downtown housing market with the introduction of a pair of luxury-style apartment facilities. The buildings — bordered by Vine, Sycamore, Northwest Second, and Northwest Third streets — included ground-floor space for retail shops, restaurants, and more, all within arm’s reach of the complex’s residents.

“The Post House has so many amenities and features that I believe are the first of their kind in the Evansville market,” LaurenKane, Barrett and Stokely’s regional manager, said in the October/November 2020 issue of Evansville Business.

Three years later, those spaces mostly remained empty. Last year, Post House expanded its residential capacity by converting the vacant space on both buildings’ first floors into 10 additional apartments while maintaining several amenities on the ground floor, including a coworking space and pet grooming station.

Post House’s residential units continue to fill up fast. At press time, the company’s website listed all 144 of its original apartments as occupied until July, when three apartments would become available. The new apartments all have been pre-leased for August, according to Adam Trinkel, executive director of the Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District.

“This continues to demonstrate the demand and need for housing Downtown,” Trinkel said. “We are pleased to welcome more residents to Downtown Evansville.”
