Great location. Nearby amenities. But keep in mind that the highway is less than 50m away. You can’t keep the window open at night because it is extremely loud (cheap cars with busted mufflers, trucks etc).

In the summer time, if your unit faces west, it’s scorching hot. A/C won’t help cause it won’t beat the heat (I’ve got 10,000BTU a/c), plus can’t open windows at night due to noise so it’s a nightmare. Almost forgot, $150 monthly charge for having an a/c.

In the winter time heating is poor. The “thermostat” in the unit does not work. Oven heat is the way to go.

Hot tub is usually not available for “maintenance”. Sometimes for weeks. Pool, sun deck, hot tub are always closed during long weekends.

Elevators have issues (1 out of 3 is usually out of commission), and in a large building like this, you’ll be spending sometime waiting in the lobby.

Had I known all this prior to moving in... I would have continued my search for a place in Ottawa.

Managment is getting progressively worse. Looking to cut corners everywhere it can. No notices when things are closed (ie pool, hot tub).

Superintendent and maintenance man (Dave) are great - they handle issues like blown fuses, changing fluorescent tube lights (energy saving) etc within 30mins.

$1350 / month 1 bedroom unit NOT WORTH IT!
