I have had cockroaches and mice. The superintendent is often unresponsive or late. The management is not willing to work with you and will try and charge absurd amounts to get anything done.

The location is great, but it doesn't always feel safe. Several times a year the front door will be smashed in. I've seen a junkie shooting up in the parking lot. There are often beer cans left in the elevators.

There are only 4 washers and 4 dryers for a 12 storey building. It's incredibly inefficient. The dryers won't dry your clothes completely.

The north side of the building has a terrible view and very limited natural light. The apartment is stuffy and not well ventilated.

A lot of cosmetic things (painting, tiles, flooring, etc.) were done cheaply and quickly and it looks disorganized and cheap.

The management is slicing up units as tenants move out, so a 1 bedroom is a 350 sq ft bachelor with a wall down the middle. They are doing cosmetic changes, but not anything fundamental. My neighbour's power shorts out as they put up a wall, but didn't do anything else to the unit.

**ROACHES AND MOUSE**
I lived here for several years on the second floor right above the underground parking entrance.
I had a very bad time when I left my first bachelor unit on second floor. To start off, heating was horrible. I had to turn on two electric heaters and oven and still had to wear socks, slippers and a jacket to keep myself warm. I told the management and the superintendent so many times, but all they did was nothing. I had to contact the super several times for other issues such as MOUSE, water leaking from the bath tub, and cockroaches.
When I finished my lease and decided to move into the 11th floor with my friend, the landlord blamed me for everything. He told me that now he needs to change the whole bath tub just because I didn't let them know the water was leaking while I was living (I had called the superintendent 3 times for the same issue). Landlord also told me I had "REFUSED" to open when he visited my unit for viewing, when I even OPENED the door when there was no notice - I have kept all my viewing notice papers. Then the landlord said I didn't open the door during the weekday daytime, when I was working and used a word "REFUSED" to open the door.
Landlord threatens you with something that YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR.
