The only good thing about this building is that it is cat/dog friendly. The A.C. hardly works, we have to keep our windows and patio door open all summer and we're on the first floor I can't imagine how hot the other floors are. It will be 2 weeks Thursday by the time someone will be in to fix our backed up/overflowing kitchen sink. Our door gets jammed closed constantly so if my boyfriend worked days instead of nights I would be stuck in our apartment at times as he has to kick the door so hard and wrench it open for me. We have black mould in our bathroom that hasn't been addressed at all after complaints. The grounds and apartment in general arnt clean, there's no shortage of dog s**t all around the building and at times inside. The "heated" pool is always freezing or disgusting as it's only cleaned once a week. Nevermind the fact the building is right on Portage avenue next to an ambulance station and a fire station is right down Whytewold so the sirens are Constant and it's at an intersection so every time the light turns green everyone seems to think it's a drag race. What I'm saying is, if you enjoy the quiet, then this will be your nightmare. The kitchen has never been updated there for as weather changes drawers expand and get stuck closed. Our bedroom window doesn't close properly and again this has never been addressed. We pay 1170$ a month for CRAP. We can't wait to leave. Save yourself the waste of money and your sanity and go somewhere else!!!!

I've lived here just over a year and the only positives I can think of are that it's pet friendly, in St. James and the parking spaces are large...my neighbour thankfully is quiet, cause the walls are paper thin. I find it is a quieter building, when the kids aren't running in the halls, screaming in the pool or the people who drink and shout off their balconies aren't home. They improved the lighting for the underground parking so I guess they feel that justifies the $200 rental increase that I got. I am currently paying $1037. Needless to say, I will not be renewing, I wasn't planning to stay even before the increase. This place is filthy, the garbage piles up outside. There is dog crap everywhere and watch when you step into the elevator (that's if it's actually in order) or you might be stepping in dog pee...and never touch anything, there is usually food smeared on something. Good luck to anyone who parks outside along the building...at first I thought someone was pouring coffee or pop off their balcony...nope, just the roof leaking onto my car making it look like someone threw up all over it. I don't even bother washing it much anymore, it looks the same the very next day. Oh, if you have Shaw phone, forget about it, it's not wired for it. Just pay more and be happy somewhere else, that's what I plan to do. I won't even try to sublet this pit. Only a few more months of hell!

Lived here 6 months and can't wait to leave! The worst place for what u get by far! Building just ancient so dirty unsafe drug dealers everywhere suits completely run down nothing gets fixed awful heating and worst ac ever can't even be in your suit in summer way to hot! Cars broken into no secerity parade doors left open so anyone can come in! Dog poop left in hallways and elevator!! Asked if walls and floors were cement was told yes there not can here everything clear as day from Neighbors rude people. Missing cloths from laundry was told by matanince go ahead and smoke weed because the entire building smells like it! Broken pipes flooded suits with water.can't get a good sleep because the suits seem like there made out of cards! No snow removal from sidewalks in winter and dog crap everywhere along with garbage! Paying 1037 a month and for what? DO NOT MOVE HERE U WILL NOT BE HAPPY. BUILDING MIGHT BE IN ST JAMES BUT IT BELONGS IN TRANSCONA LOW INCOME HOUSING COMPLETE DUMP

<removed>
This is by far, the WORST apartment block ever.
<section removed to comply with terms> Management Company are lazy, and won't fix anything. Parking is great but it's dimly lit and the garbage always piles up.
Several cars broken into!!!
Hallways are gross, carpets haven't been replaced since the building was erected I'm sure.
Caretaker's hands are tied because of the "Management" company so nothing ever gets done. You keep hearing "Oh it's on the list of things to be done" and then it never happens.
Security is non-existant, you can walk in the garage easily enough as the doors take ages to come down.

Waste of $$$$ for what you get.

LOOK ELSEWHERE FIRST, only as a last resort should you move in here as they at least allow pets.
