The younger supers try!! I think the real.problem is there headoffice!
The "project manager" does nothing bit sit in her office all day yelling at people.
The.older (new) "resident managers" know nothing the lady in the office is sometimes abrasive and loud and the older man that is suppose to do work orders and what not walks around looking lost. I've been waiting on a simple work order now since March 2017 everytime i go to the office they say the "resident manager" is takig care of them and nothig gets taken care of!!.
The younger staff (a few) does a good job keeping the building clean but they can only do so much with no direction from the higher ups.
The apts and building is old and out dated very over priced with electric heat which isnt included and costs an arm and a leg every month cold or not.
As a whole Q Residential is very professional

Management sucks, they are nice to you until you sign the lease. They give you a hard time with the moving elevators. You can forget your deposit on your parking spot as they do not return it and they lie.

Stay away from there, they are always spraying the entrance. No security, anyone can get in if you just wait in the lobby.

I can't comment on the management as it's been 3 years since I've lived in this building. If the same managing couple is there, I will say that the gentleman of the managing couple can be an a$$ sometimes. Just not good with people. But his wife is nice.

I did live there for 8 years though and loved the location: transit way across the street, pathway in the back next to the river (good for strolls, access to bike paths and running if you're into that). The building was kept clean enough. I was at home sick for 3 weeks once and every day they vacuumed the hallways, mopped the floors in the lobby and the elevators, and maintained the recycling area on the first floor.

The gym is not "state-of-the-art"! lol. If you're a gym goer it's not adequate enough.

Guest parking sucks because there are only a few spots available and almost always taken up.

They keep the grounds looking nice.

There isn't a good grocery store close by, but that's only an issue if you haven't got a car.

If I hadn't gone and bought a house I would still be living there!

Not a lot positive. Overpriced because of location (close to Ottawa U). Management rude . Building poorly maintained.
