We were able to move but the people in Bingham square still suffer from pipes busted, ceilings caving in, water leaks etc. No one deserves to live in these conditions. Waking up not able to get in shower brush your teeth and things like that is a bit ridiculous. The days living in Bingham square was a nightmare and I’m sure it’s still a nightmare for the others that haven’t been able to move. When one hurt in our community we all hurt.

Bingham Square Apartments 2023


Gary Plichta West Palm Beach Florida owns Bingham & Madison Square Apartments in Anderson Indiana. Gary and his associates came to Anderson in September 2019 pre pandemic. They made a bunch of empty promises. They bought the already problematic complexes and received almost a million dollars to renovate/update the properties. 

The Pandemic comes and wreaks havoc on the Nation. We get it, stuff happens. Plans change and some things can be out of our control. However, it's been 4 years since the initial purchase. The property management fixed a couple of things then left the tenants hanging. 

Property Resources (Gary Plichta) also kept collecting rent each month even though some of the apartments did not have heat or water.


In fact, the utilities were included in the rent and the property managers did not pay the bills. That isn't the tenants' fault, but they were definitely mistreated at the hands of Gary Plichta and his associates. Where did the money go?!?

Sadly we may never know

where the borrowed money went.


We may never know where the rent money for utilities went, but we do know it wasn't being spent on the property's utility account. Many of the tenants had to go without heat and water for a year or more. That is what I would say is inhumane treatment of fellow Americans on American soil and supposedly we can do nothing about it.


We couldn't use city property to raise money for Bingham or Madison Square tenants due to a supposed ordinance

Thankfully the Housing Authority

and a couple of other agencies were able to step in to help


Many people were able to move,

but there are still people living

at the apartment complexes in May 2023.

I bet Gary Plichta and Associates

did not go without heat and water or power.


I was able to find the location for Gary Plichta on Public Record. Gary lives in a gated community that doesn't allow google maps to zoom into his property.

However, thank God for Zillow because I was able to get a walkthrough of the mansion where Gary Plichta lives in Florida.



Plichta's home has 7 bathrooms in it...

Check this out:

Gary Plichta Property Resource Associates LLC


10655 Versailles Blvd, Wellington, FL 33449 | Zillow

I personally was not expecting to find such an immaculate property. Gary Plichta could house some of these people or let them come and stay for a little vacay considering some of the tenants helped pay his bills. Plus Anderson Indiana literally gave Plichta almost a million dollars from our TIF fund and we can't get it back apparently. 


Gary Plichta should not be allowed to keep his home in Florida for allowing his fellow Americans in Indiana to suffer before, during, and three years after the Nation was unlocked. People need work and I'm positive there are local contractors around here that need the work. It's a shame that so many out-of-town people own so many properties in Anderson Indiana. We should be called the slumlord capital. 


Seriously, with such inadequate laws in Indiana and across the Nation, there is no wonder we have so many pissed-off Americans.
