Incorrect Google Map Directions

I'm having a few issues with Google Maps. 


My business is "New Star Lighting" and the address is 4000 South Bell Avenue (,-87.6816842,19.75z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0...). This location is the same address as 2225 West Pershing Road Chicago, IL 60609 and is correct. 


1. When you type in "4000 S Bell Avenue. Chicago, IL 60609" into Google Maps. It shows a location one building away from the correct location.,+Chicago,+IL+60609/@41.8224669,-87.6822508,19z/dat...


2. When you use Google Map Directions and try to "find" 4000 South Bell Avenue. It takes you to an entire different location.,+Chicago,+IL/2828+N+Burling+St,+Chicago,+IL+6...


Please help!

For me it seems you are mistaken  saying

address of 2225 West Pershing Road Chicago, IL and the location of the listing "New Star Lighting"

are th same 

The location of the listing is near 41.822920, -87.681513 while 2225 W Pershing Td is pinpointed at 41.822355, -87.681287

On the other hand there is indeed a mess regarding the address 

"4000 S Bell Ave, Chicago, IL 60609"


This address is resolved to two different locations:


one is near the "W Pershing Rd" and itd this:


the other one is far a way from the "W Pershing Rd" but for the same address:4000 S Bell Ave, Chicago, IL 60609, USA


Its an obvious address mess and has nothing to do with GoogleMyBusiness.

Its a GMaps issue and you should report this two duplicating addresses via GoogleMaps and discuss it with the experts of the GMaps forum.!forum/maps


Good luck
