Have had 3 bed bug sprays and one cockroach inspection in less than two years. The last two summers it's always brickwork repairs which means incessant noise. There is no easy to bring groceries upstairs to your apartment because you can't technically park in front of main doors, so you have to carry groceries up and down stairs. With new management they hired parksafe for the parking lot and now visitors parking no longer free for guests. Also they refuse to maintain outdoor parking for the winter and they tried to relocate us to visitors but no reserved for tenants signs so visitors currently parked in my spot which means I no longer even have an assigned parking spot. Door to new managers office always closed. Laundry machines dirty, one is always broken. Parking garage can fit only one car driving and not two so beware going up and down that dangerous thing. If you choose outdoor parking you have to wind up the parking garage six times before reaching the top and then go down a flight of stairs to ground floor to get inside building. Again outdoor parking not properly maintained in the winter. Hallways smell like smoke almost always and smoke smell seeps into your apartment. I like the fact that the building is pet friendly but if there is a dog barking all the way down the hallway believe me you will hear it. Seems like all apartment buildings are the same and paramount and osgoode seem to own the majority of them so moving to a new one is probably not even worth it at this time.

Paramount Properties has come in and changed our visitor parking to a pay lot to gouge a couple extra dollars grom our guests. They have not communicated anything to residence since taking over and will not respond to your emails. AVOID!

This was the first place I ever lived alone. Management was very understanding and patient with me as I was a struggling teenager trying to financially figure out how to be an adult. Building parking lot was undergoing construction at the time but workers were polite and followed noise bi law. Building was kept very clean and neighbours were very nice.

Love this place , I wish I could give 10 Stars , if I could , Management is so helpful and very pro-active for any issue I have, I feel so safe , I see security patrolling the premise , they also have a after hour line you can contact. The office is open 6 days a week .Amazing staff, I would not rent any where else.

Great location but has nothing else to offer. Management does not respond to any concerns. Requested several times to have carpet changed - no response. Cannot park in front to unload groceries, etc - told by management to move vehicle (only management or contractors can park in front of building). No security whatsoever and in winter, no snow removal, shoveling or plowing until 9:00 am at the earliest. I would leave at 6:30 and nothing was done. Contractors supposedly doing work on the building - but all I ever saw first thing in the morning was these contractors entertaining the local hookers. Would enter rental office to talk to manager, but she would ignore totally or shut the door.

Would NOT recommend this place to anyone.
