This place sucks. There's major mice problems as well as other problems that will NEVER get fixed. The water is always brown, there's never hot water, the heat is horrible, and its VERY hot in the summer!! The fire alarms go off for no reason. The place is just horrible in general. Don't live here, find somewhere else, don't do this to yourself, you deserve better!!!! :((

This building sucks and ive lived here for almost six years. If they dont fix things soon the renters board will get contacted. I havent moved due to money issues. The water has been brown for days. We have asked them to fix several things five years ago and have repeatedly asked them to fix things and they havent. Sink leaks like crazy. Hallways always smell like pot. More then once have the fire alarms gone off without a fire and the fire department has put up hazzard notices or whatever. Major mice problems more then once. I suggest people look for something better. This place needs to be reported.

I lived in this building for more than a year and had numerous problems during that time.

1) The building management on several occasions entered my apartment without my consent.

2) The general condition of the suite I had was poor when I moved in. A 'moving out' inspection for the previous tenant was never carried out or if it was, it was just done to legally 'steal' the damage deposit (aka claim the 'need' for excessive cleaning) from the previous tenant without actually fixing anything in the apartment. This was also done with me upon moving out.

3) The plumbing was old and rotting. My kitchen faucet was leaky and pipes rusting. The kitchen sink was not sealed to the counter so there was continual water seepage underneath the counter (a breeding ground for rot and pests).

4) The walls adjacent to the plumbing were rotting away.

5) There was mold growing in the bathroom.

6) I had numerous problems with pests: silverfish and mice.

7) The heat on numerous occasions did not function. Also the thermostat was simply a non-functional wall ornament.

8) The management/caretaker continually requested higher than standard rent increases every year, claiming increased operating costs, but in general, the condition of the building never improved.

9) The management/caretakers nickle and dimed for EVERYTHING possible. For example, a rental receipt costs 25 dollars, takes a week to get, and is simply a handwritten note (for 25 dollars I think a receipt stamped on solid gold is more appropriate)!

In short... the price may look low at first! But it WILL go up, and they WILL try to take as much money out of your pockets as they can, just so that you can live in a building where things are slowly degrading/rotting and won't be fixed unless they are entirely nonfunctional.

Buyer beware!
