I would not recommend this building anymore under the new management. The building lacks the essential safety features of modern buildings, most notably a sprinkler system. Fire alarms are often triggered, leaving me feel unsafe. Management also has failed to maintain my unit to an adequate standard (eg using mismatched carpet within the unit following water damage to the floor). Appliances are outdated and old. Heat exchange cooling units have failed repeatedly in summer months - they simply swap in other jerry-rigged units which then also fail. The management also acts very aggressively, not respecting mandatory 24 hour notice periods for entry and providing inadequate specificity on the time of entry. The previous manager was very accommodating. The new management is simply unprofessional and untrustworthy. This building simply no longer merits the high prices they charge for their units. AVOID.

Beautiful building in Little Italy, long history of excellent property management including responsive management and efficient maintenance. Sakto Corporation built and owns the residential and commercial towers just off Preston Street. I've lived in several units over 6 years, and keep coming back due to a lack of similar rental units in Ottawa at this price range. However, I believe this latest lease will be the last I will sign with Waterford managing this building.

Pros: Clean, secure, in-unit laundry, spacious units, excellent location, formerly communicative and friendly management.
Cons: Change in management resulting in poor communication, rising rents and new extra fees. Old and outdated facilities in comparison to other residential developments nearby.
A new residential tower has been approved for construction, so disruptions and further costs will likely occur over the next few years.
