Due to the amazing location, I love living here. The Sobey's is a 1 minute walk, and it closes at 11 pm which I find super convenient. Bars/clubs, pubs, and restaurants are all within walking distance. Relatively clean building (hallways painted recently), but problems are addressed VERY slowly.

The building cons:
- Washers can be "out of service" for weeks before getting fixed.
- Laundry floor is often covered in water from faulty fixtures.
- All fans (above the stove & within the bathroom) run continuously in order to circulate air. This also means that if you have an oven/stove that smokes a lot, your smoke detector will go off every time you cook.

My unit cons:
- I have new windows, yet still feel a significant draft in my unit.
- I feel a very significant draft through my main door from the hallway.
- The sink & tub taps have leaked since before I moved in.
- The heating dials aren't digital, which allows for tons of error. I set my heating for 20 degrees yet my unit is always at 24/25.
- Nearly all of the light bulbs in my unit burnt out after a week of moving in... bizarre coincidence.

The good....

New sign out front as well as new window decal

Great location

Rents are cheaper then most around here,but still a little high.

Repainting doors, and hallways.

Replacing hallway carpeting.

The bad....

Pool has mold.

Laundry room has dust up top, and a giant hole in the wall.

Machines are often out of service, and you to have walk to their main office to get reimbursed if your card broke and it had money on it.


Multiple units have drafty doors and windows. You have to bundle up as units are cold in the evening and at night.

Homeless people get in during the winter.

Building cleaner makes fun of people, and spends more time on his iPod then he does actually cleaning.

There is no one on site to show you an apartment, you have to call the number and make an appointment or walk down to main office.

There have been leaks in the storage room.

Units are not well maintained, and individual units get band aid fixes when something is broken.

Too many people slamming their doors. Never properly cleaned. Management used to be helpful, but after building jackhammer noise 2012/13 has become very paranoid and rarely addresses any problems. Location is obviously central and couldn't be better. Security I won't comment on.

I have lived in this building for many years and the buildings current owners leave allot to be desired. Since they took over ownership of the building it has become a very dirty building with for example the Laundry room being one of the dirtiest. Look at the walls and the floor and try not be disgusted of the dirt the covers both. In particular there is one member of their cleaning staff who snickers and makes fun of disabled and elderly people and spends more time texting on their phone when they are supposed to be cleaning. When this person is supposed to be the on call super he is never around. The also have a sign advertising Rental Agent on Duty yet there is never anyone in the office. I have watched potential renters just leave because there is none in the office.

The pool in the apartment has mold.

Floors 2-10 have old paint that is chipping off.

The laundry room is full of dust and lint, as no one properly cleans it.

The guy who cleans our building does a really bad job, and despite the constant complaints, he is still here.

People living in the older part of the building have drafty doors and windows.
