Jun 14th I submitted a note from my doctor requesting the approval to install a bar in the bathroom to facilitate going in and out of the bathtub since my right knee has been injured.
Today is July 6 & still no response in spite of my frequent inquiries.

We are leaving after two years due to health concerns and budget being stretched too far. Rent goes up and down making budgeting difficult. Building improvements are underway, which is encouraging, When we moved in all utilities were covered, making it affordable, but now hydro will no longer be covered and the rents remain the same. Do not move in unless you are able to have some free cash! On the positive side, new management is great...kind, effective, and appear to have concerns of residents at heart. Building is a happy place, usually, if you can avoid some of the complainers, but that is true of life anywhere! LOL We have had an overall positive experience while here. Location and view is awesome, new staff always appear happy at their work. One criticism is the elevators, however they are now being updated to the 21st Century! I recommend this building for 'upwardly mobile' folks with a healthy budget.... seniors are a plus here, so are the dog owners!

The management is not good, they don't do anything about the maintenance in the building. <section removed to comply with terms> The building is falling apart. I am happy I am moving out of here.

<section removed to comply with terms>

Getting parking or a storage locker is a nightmare. The office does not have computers so everything is completely disorganized. The hot tub is ALWAYS broken. They have renovated apartments which are never done properly. So when you move in, nothing they promised you will actually happen.

When I moved into a renovated unit the paint job was terrible, the doors were not painted at all, the windows were filthy, I had no electricity in my bedroom, and the bathroom was not completed, like for example, there was no toilet paper holder etc. My unit was not ready on time, and getting things done was impossible.

There are always problems with the water, like there will be no water or if you shower early in the morning there will be no hot water. The elevators are slow, but that is the least of the problems with the elevators. The elevators are dangerous. People get stuck in them all the time. The ride is a bumpy one, and the elevator doors like to do weird things like open and close for no reason. And most insane is that the elevators don't work at night. The staff has been informed the elevators don't work at night, but literally no one cares.

Homestead is a terrible company that makes my experience with Minto seem positive. I do like a lot of the other tenants, which is nice. But when I talk to other tenants, they all have the same complaints...no one is happy.
