Been living there for over 3 months now.

Don't have any complaints other than the tight parking lot. You either get lucky with a decent spot or you're in tough for pulling in and out of your spot. Luck of the draw I guess.

Nice, renovated suites that are definitely up to date with lots of storage and all needed appliances in the kitchen.

Any issues I had were dealt with in a quick and efficient manner by the property manager.

Can't comment on the laundry or safety as I don't do laundry in the building. Safety seems fine, I have seen no issues to bring up other than the occasional garbage picker when someone is moving out and has dumped their stuff.

I highly recommend not renting for this place. Management is non existent and completely useless. On a number of occasions they have completely mishandled situations and are a complete mess when it comes to paperwork. The management must not do their due-deligence as many renters party all night, or had large dogs that bark in the middle of the night (even though I was told small dogs only - people here have large dogs). And though they do “no smoking” the hallways smell like pot every day. Parking is awful, carpets are dirty and the mailbox has been broken into a number of times. You’d think management would at least fix that one? Nope. Though the apartments are newly renovated, they clearly cut corners and just did aesthetics, as cracks are now starting to appear and half-assed work is apparent.
Do yourself a favour and keep looking, don’t make the same mistake I did. And I doubt management will read this, it’s too much work for them to do so.

i rented this place as a student, because its closer to major bus routes, a lot of partying going on at night. when issues are reported to the building manager he does nothing about it, rather he brings his friends over and parties with them as well. As at now the mail box is broken and we are told to go pick up our mail within 9:30 and 1:30 i mean how is that possible are people that less busy. when you arrive at 9:30 the mail man has carried the items, when you go after 1:30 they are closed. the buzz machine is also broken and carpets smell like dog poop which i'm being honest, it gets cleaned but it still stinks

This apartment is situated right by harkness station, which is a blessing and a curse. You tend to get a lot of first time renters who don't have neighbourly ediquette. I've had more than a dozen instances with different neighbours having loud obnoxious parties in the middle of the week till 6/7am. The turnover rate is high here for renting, which makes sense since it tends to be a student hotspot, so a lot of subleases and so forth. The walls are not soundproofed and probably the floors aren't, but as I was on the top floor I wouldn't know exactly.

As for safety cars have been broken into in both the front and back despite the busy road and cameras on each of the buildings. Most vehicles have immobilizers in them, but putting a club on the wheel does not stop them from attempting to steal the actual vehicle itself, so I have no advice in keeping your vehicle safe.

I've attempted on each occasion to have the noise resolved, but as it seems it's not particularly a main concern for them, it has never quite changed. I can't say every neighbour is horrible and loud, but from the dozen that have moved in and out along the top floor, they don't seem to realize others live within the same building as them.

If your able to sleep through the noise (note I am legally deaf in one ear and still heard the partying, music and conversations through the walls very clearly) and if you want to gamble your vehicle with theft and broken windows, then by all means give this place a go. If not not then honestly do yourself a favour and keep looking, you'll find the suitable place for you.

I signed a year of my life away to this place and by the end of it all, I personally didn't feel like this place was worth the money or the stress and lack of sleep. Don't make the same mistakes as me, there's a reason for this rating.

This building is currently under renovation. Rents will be nearly doubling ($800-$900) for the extremely tiny apartments. The walls will not be improved and there is no sound barrier between the apartments. Every sound can be heard through the walls and floors. The increased rent is too high for these poorly constructed suites. The building is in a mess and no effort has been made by the new caretaker to keep the hallways and stairs as neat as possible during construction. You will be miserable living here.
