The maintenance is worses I ever seen. Building had a lot of problems with elevator for a long time. One elevator was broken, and after the second become broken as well and if your apartment on 21 floor, good luck with this. Second the windows are old and wind go throw all the time. It might be good during Summer, but is very bad during Winnipeg winter. The water is not clean as well, Yes, your have read it right - the water is not clean. That happens not all the time but sometimes if you open the tap water it has yellow-rгstн color. Now about the maintenance: a couple days ago we could not open our front lock. I called emergency number because I had found that at 7.30 p.m. on Saturday. They came look at the lock and spray it with some oil. Seems like that had solved the problem. Next morning our family have decided to go to the park but we could not close the front door because the lock again did not work. So I called emergency number again. They came and again spray it with oil. We did not go anywhere because of the situation with the lock, so we stayed home. Next morning was Monday long weekend and guess what? It was the same problem with the lock. So, I had called the emergency number again. But there was not any answer. I called all day. Now just imagining that. If it will be any emergency you cannot call anyone who work in the building. At 6 p.m. we should be at birthday party but my family still cannot leave the apartment. Finally at 6.30 security have answered to us. The building maintenance came, check the lock and said that they will change the lock tomorrow. I was soooo mad at them, I said that they should change it already at the second time than the problem was happened, but the they look at me and said that they cannot do anything today.
now imaging yourself in such situation and answer the question to yourself: Do you want to leave at such building?

Management = Horrible. Revolving door of ppl who really don't care about your concerns.
Maintenance = The cheapest avenue is taken for repairs and things are breaking down and in constant need of repair. Elevators are always breaking down. I'm told that 6 of the 4 boilers (hot water tanks) are operational which is better than zero during the January 2016 cold snap. The stairs are good exercise in a 22 story building.
Cleanliness = Filthy building. Laundry room is disgusting. Ppl piss or spill booze in the elevators and stairwells on weekends. Lobby is never really clean. I had to ask that someone vacuum the hallway on my floor because it hadn't been done in months.
Quiteness = Noisiest building I have lived in. You can complain about your neighbours noise or music and the security may ask them to keep things down but no one is evicted for numerous noise complaints. So you have to keep calling every time ppl are noisy.Ppl fight in the hallways, shouting and screaming at each other. The outside street noise is loud too. Ppl shouting and fighting, emergency vehicles and loud traffic. This probably due to the windows being of poor quality.
Heating = Baseboard heat where you pay Hydro & Electricity. The windows are aluminum frames and cold and drafty.
Laundry = 2 laundry rooms with 6 washers and 8 dryers for the whole building. Laundry room is backed up on weekend all the time. Ppl dump their garbage, lint and used bounce sheets all over in the laundry room and the floors are filthy.
Storage = Large storage room in my suite. One good thing.
Safety = Ppl come and go all the time and strangers are let in. They pass out in the stairwells. An intoxicated guy assaulted my friends son last week.
Cooling = Wall AC unit in living area, you pay Hydro & electricity so it can be costly in a hot Summer.
Parking = The parkade is okay. It's dusty and ppl dump garbage and cigarette butts all over.
Neighbourhood = Downtown living. Nice during the day. Can be dangerous in the evening. I wouldn't go for a walk after 8:00pm.
Hot Water = In 2 years this building has been without hot water for a significant time. First time was in Spring and Summer and ppl didn't care much. Last time was Dec 2015 - Jan 2016 during a cold snap. Ppl were pissed. It took almost 2 weeks to have fully operational hot water.
If I could go back in time I would never have signed my lease. I would have chosen one of the other downtown buildings that seem to be well maintained (Chateau 100 or Broadview Manor on Donald).

Horrible place to live. The impression I get from this building is that they just don't care. Everything is neglected until the Tenancies Branch has to intervene. There is a constant turnover of on-site staff in the office. At least 6 women have come and gone in the year and a half I have lived here. Elevators are constantly breaking down. The Metro covered this story in early Fall 2015. A 22-floor apt building cannot have both elevators down at the same time, but this happened on a regular basis. Issues with no hot water and no water pressure. Poor response to any fumigation for bed bugs. Fire alarm is constantly pulled at all hours of the night. The rent is reasonable and this attracts a lot of deadbeats. Partying, shouting and fighting are a regular occurrence on the weekends. Smoke and weed carry through the ventilation system and travel into your apt. I moved in August 2015 and will be leaving very soon. This is the worst building I have ever lived in.

This is one of the worst rental properties I have ever lived in. As of August 2015 one elevator has been out of service for 5 months. During this time, on more then a handful of occasions the other elevator has also broken down and we are left with no elevator service at all in a 22 story building.

The management advises that they are waiting for part, still, after 5 months. They are too cheap to pay for a maintenance contract on the elevators and now the rental tennancy board is involved b/c they are too cheap to fix it.

Wait times for an elevator regularly exceed 20 mins. Laundry equipment breaks down frequently. The pool is disgusting, and when concerns are brought to the leasing agency the lady in the office will tell you to **** off and if you don't like it you can move.

I have never lived in a place like this with such incompetence and total lack of regard for ones tenants.

I really do love this building!
A new caretaker is coming soon - so it can only get better!
Always quiet - my only issue was every one of the two elevators not working - or BOTH on a few occasions (for a short period of time, but long enough!).
The price is great for the size and the location. Tons of free parking on weekends and a couple really cheap parkades near by! :)loved it.
