Turned a 1 bedroom into a small two bedroom. Kind of tight. Small kitchen. But it was somewhat renovated so it was okay.
Pretty clean upon move in.

Parking was a pain! someone would always park in my spot and they wouldn't do anything about it. It was also really dirty and people would check every night to see if you car was unlocked (got my wallet stolen this way - my mistake?)... Hobos always in parking lot. Can be uncomfortable at night.

Maintenance wasn't too bad. They redid our windows and patio doors in 2015 so that was good. People who lived their had funky smells :S so the whole building smells kind of gross.

Close to university, restos, shopping. Mostly university students and old ethnic individuals.

the maintenance guy that was there when I left was a really rude lazy guy. Didn't want to do anything or be responsible for anything and would blame people for stuff they didn't do.
Laundry was a bit expensive (around 2.50 to wash and then 2.50 to dry) and always lots of peoples using them.

Storage was offered but it was really crappy, unsafe, and dark. Its made of wood so you can easily break in...

fun fact : unused pool in basement

Reviewer says...
I have lived at this apartment for a year. It is a shabby building that has faulty elevators - I was once stuck in a elevator for a n hour with no elevator fan - Almost suffocated to death. The fire mechanisms are faulty - the landlord has been fined before for 75000. Heating in thee winter is minimal. It violates city by-laws. Management does not respond to complaints. All in all, a pretty horrible experience. Although it is a nice neighbourhood, the fire station a block away makes it difficult to sleep at night
