The building is old but in a great location (unless you face Stewart Avenue where it is quite noisy). The carpets are gross and need replacing badly - was told renovations are only done when you move out (however I know someone who moved out and they were not replaced). The ceiling was peeling in the bathroom before I moved in and needs repaired and painted - although a "to do" list was filled out when Devon Properties owned it, nothing has been done in over 5 years. The lino floors and counter-tops should all be replaced as well - and no screens for any of the windows or doors. The laundry room is only available until 8:30 which doesn't leave much time in the evening and only 4 washers and 4 dryers for the entire building. The new landlords have had all the exterior doors re-keyed with special keys that can't be duplicated which is great, but try getting a spare key is impossible. I love the location and the rent suits my budget however I have had a rent increase every year and nothing to show for it.

So glad that residents are expressing their experiences of life in 450 Stewart Avenue. I personally think it's a great place. The miserable, negative people should just find a lovely and happier place to park themselves - that would be great if they could move out and spend their time being positive about somewhere else. Good bye to them & happy moving!!

The building was sold, changed management and rebranded the Sand Dollar. Hopefully devon properties leaves Nanaimo, to focus on their dumps in Victoria. Good luck to the new owner's and managers. <section removed to comply with terms> A complete hole, gladly exchange construction noise over the rowdy crowds coming and going year round.

This building was recently sold, if you think the previous management/ownership was slack. The new owners will put as little as possible into a building before it's demolition. So long to the last ghetto building on Stewart Ave. Imagine that view over Newcastle island. Might time lapse record its demise.

The deuce I rented came with no screens as well. Do remember the water shut off with notice once but the second shut off came with no warning. Called <removed> landlord and was told it could be off rest of the night was not turned back on till almost noon next day. Now the tenancy is another issue. I<section removed to comply with terms> Cops called to the building a dozen times in my 6 months a resident.
