After reading other reviews I thought I would add mine. i has been mentioned that there are cockroaches in the building. In my experience living in apartment buildings I have found even the best of places have them, it's called living in the city. The best treatment is the gell not the spray, as it is safer for pets. The building is very clean and the staff are very nice. This is a good building for adults who enjoy a nice quiet neighbourhood. The hallways are well ventilated. In regards to the heat in summer, it's best to treat the windows with a heat reflecting film if you face south, it will cool the rooms down. The staff respond well to any concerns. I've lived at Norberry for over eight years, for me it's a place I gladly call home.

The residents of this building are all very friendly. The ladies in the rental office are fantastic. The garbage rooms on each floor are kept clean. The stairwells are clean.

Move-in day...don't have a moving truck higher than 6'3" or you'll be parking in the fire lane and hauling your stuff through the underground parking garage to the service door. You get 2 hours of an elevator on service and it needs to be pre-booked. And even if you've done everything right you still might not get the elevator on time since nobody communicates with each other.

Do you like spiders? You're going to get some as window decorations since massive ones live on the windows. Speaking of windows, the windows are huge and you get great views. But, the part you can open is tiny. Want a breeze? Doesn't happen. Window coverings...you need to drill into concrete and need 4 curtain panels per window minimum. Using an air conditioner or fans? Get lots - the air flow is awful between rooms.

The salt water pool is beautiful and refreshing. By refreshing I mean chilly. Personally, once I get in I love it but many complain of the temp. Also, only 10 people are allowed in at a time. Single parent with more than 2 kids? You might get told you can't bring more than 2 at a time. Love to dive or jump in the deep end? Nope. Not allowed. But 4 nights a week from 7-9pm is adult swim time so it's a nice break from families.

Laundry room. There's 2 in the basement. Nice and clean. Expensive though. And peak hours you're out of luck. Need to do laundry later at night? Last loads are at 8, closes at 10. None of this info is given in your new tenant booklet.

There's storage rooms free of charge. You need your own lock. But don't rush out to buy it since you need to let them know you want it then wait for one to be available, which could be months.

Make sure you have lots of surge protectors and screw fuses...you'll go through lots. Air conditioner on in one room and want to vacuum in another? You've now blown a fuse.

I love my apartment even with the issues and plan to stay a long time.

Horrible place. Avoid it if you can. Apartments have little or no windows and are boiling hot even on cool days. Musty smell throughout the building, which management denies knowing anything about.

Low cost and good neighborhood, although there are many points on which improvement is needed: frequent power outages (almost monthly), no emergency lights or windows in the halls and stairwell, management can be very rude, there have been cases of bed bugs and dog feces is left in the building for days.

The place is not clean, fusty smell in the old units, constant bug issue - insects of all sorts, massive spiders get hutched in those nice large windows and get inside in the summer and fall, bad sound-proofing - you can avoid having nasty noise issues with neighbours if you are lucky, administration is unsupportive.

I do not recommend.
