I moved here around about 8 years ago when you controlled your own heat. Now they control the heat and I am freezing. Every room and every thing you touch in the apartment is cold. I sleep with 3 sweaters, pj bottoms, socks, 2 blankets, a comforter and i am still cold. I am not usually cold so if I am cold its really cold. My apartment got sprayed twice for bed bugs. I don't see them in my apt. but some near bye apt. has them so they have to spray. For 3 consecutive summers them did brick repair. My balcony was unusable, my apartment was full of cancer causing concrete dust and maybe my lungs also. If my relatives of friends want to visit the parking is $12 a night. I lost 2 TVs to power serge. They removed all plugs to charge your car battery. The only reason that i am still here is because really I hate moving and maybe there is nothing better in my price range.

Paramount "updated" the laundry room with top loading washers that are much less convenient to use than front loading, increased the cost of the dryers by 50 cents, and removed a community notice board.

The visitor parking only has 9 spots for a 12 storey building and you have to pay through an app or credit card to a predatory parking company that will wait for time to run out on people's parking and immediately ticket them.

Manager's office door is always shut and staff are very unwelcoming since Paramount took over and started making exclusively negative changes.

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.
