Date: Aug 11, 2016. Been a tenant since Feb of 2016. Building is nicely renovated, any of my issues were dealt with promptly and skillfully by the maintenance crew and the building manager (heather at the time). building manager was incredibly helpful and always available and eager to assist. my parking spot is adequate and affordable. the building gets pretty warm so i rarely run the heat even in the winter and i have the ac on all summer and it keeps the apartment at a crisp 69 degrees. I never hear my neighbors unless they are in the hallway and even then its barely noticeable. the apartment feels very private and safe and I feel i'm definitely getting my moneys worth compared to whats out there, and the location cant be beat. So far, i love this place. my only complaint is that there's no balcony, but that's reflected in the cost.

Had multiple bed bug infestations in 2009 and 2010. Some tenants refused to get their suites treated. I'd get the hell out!

Been here for 5 years. The building was purchased by a new agency in 2014. It looks like they are renovating as people move out and increasing the rent.

It's in a busy area, so if you are expecting quiet then I would avoid this area. For the most part, I very rarely hear my neigbours. But I do hear the bar across the street on the weekends.

Since the new agency took over, the building is not cleaned as often. Lots of garbage in the foyer and the stairwells.

Location is GREAT. Lots of entertainment/food/shopping around, very close to the U of W, and a bus stop that goes to the U of M is right across the street.

Security is lacking. The back door lock has obviously been tampered with. The fire exit on the third floor is often propped open. I have left in the morning to encounter people sleeping in the foyer.

I don't know anything about the management company, but since acquiring the building the condition has detoriated.

I have NO idea who the caretaker is or how to get a hold of them.

I don't have a parking spot so can't comment.

No guest parking; they have to park on the street. Many of my guests have had issues finding parking because of the area, or have gotten tickets due to snow routes or sat longer in 2h parking. It's the nature of the area, but it can be frustrating if you like entertaining.

No storage to speak of.

Laundry machines are not the greatest but they are available on every floor. They use Smartcards. I've had landry stolen before, but that can happen in any apartment building. Just check on your stuff.

It's an okay place. I feel like I get what I pay for.

The caretaker (Gord at this time) is a super cool dude. As long as you're not a crazy person he'll try to help you the best he can. My room was amazing, sound proof, huge window! The kitchen's aren't great, appliances are old - maybe you're place will get new appliances.

2.5 sucky things:

- Someone on my floor always left the washing machine door closed. Stupid. Smells terrible every time I open the door, have to let it air out dingus.

- This is a smoking building. And someone on my floor really wanted cancer, because he/she smoked for four hours straight some evenings. The hallways reeked those evenings. It never really stuck though, the building seems to be like teflon in that way.. it only smells like smoke when someone is smoking.. weird.

- the 0.5 is that when people are smoking in the building, it's in the stairwell, so you're breathing heavy going up the stairs.. inhaling second hand smoke. It's not nice.

I rated Storage, Tenant parking as 5 but i've never used them. There's lots of parking in the village. Sometimes there are vandals that will break the front door window, but I've never felt insecure here in the past 4 years of living here. I left because of the smoking.

Horrible place to live, it is not cleaned properly, tenants putting garbage bags under the stairwell instead of outside in the garbage bin, hallways smelling of pot half of the time, caretaker that is not actually on site, fire alarms either not working or being played with/tested without anyones knowledge, overall a terrible place to live all around, do not move in here ever.
