Many things not fixed since we’ve been here (coming up to a year). Getting the perfect temperature for a shower is a fun game if you have about 10 minutes to spare. If your parked underground your taking the risk washing your car as itll have a nice fine layer of dust the next day. The laundry price wouldn’t be to bad if I could fit more than 3 towels in the washer and for some reason 10 in a drier. The neighbourhood is nice, your close to Carlingwood mall and also right beside Carling avenue, which means constant traffic. The thing that makes me not want to continue renting this unit is the bedbug which apparently from previous tenants have been a problem in the past, none of this was mentioned and weve had our place sprayed twice in the past year.

Substandard re: first impression an move in substandard, filthy and stench terrible. Rude admin staff, lack of staff to maintain and clean common areas and maintain apts. VERY COLD, Heat supposed to be included with the rent......that's a joke! Pigeons nesting and overrun with feces.......can't use your balcony due to copious amounts of pigeon crap. Noisy neighbours, and when it is reported to the property management........they state you are the problem, even though there is a section in the lease no tolerance for noise.

I rank cleanliness very high on my wishlist so unfortunately no matter how great other aspects of the apartment are won't make up for the cockroach problem that exists in the building.

Place was substandard when moved in...toilet needed a part in order to use, smelled like a smoker had lived here prior, floors were not sanded and glazed, painted over dirt,

The excuse for that because of back to back move in, and this happens all the time from what I understand. ( save $$$)

One super and 1 housekeeper for 256 units....not the employees fault If things don't get done or done properly ......need more staff!!!!

The staff were very nice but management are cold, not a friendly/community feel at all.
Alot of moves/turnover. Quiet building Clean/but old and tired looking in some areas.

Tennants Complain of being very cold this winter....guess I was lucky:)
