Lived here for 3+ years. Building is older but in good condition. The apartments themselves are spacious and nicely laid out. My kitchen is not updated so it looks crummy but it works just fine, I also have an end unit so kitchen window is a nice plus. Massive windows with gorgeous views, especially on higher floors. Full length concrete balconies are in good shape, though drab and covered in lichen on some parts. Laundry room is pretty good though there's almost always a machine or two not working and I wish it was available 24/7 - right now it's only open 7am -10pm. Outdoor pool is awesome. Tenants are mostly pleasant and there are lots of dogs - known locally as The Dog Building. It is not handicap accessible. I've only heard of one apartment on one floor having issues with roaches and that was one time. The area is nice and quiet, very safe, beautiful public park area along the river and lots of nearby amenities. Not enough parking available as people in the other buildings use the lots. Staff are okay, repairs can be time consuming and office staff don't know much. Needs better landscaping for sure.

Management... No explanations given for declined application. Will not return phone calls or emails. Will gladly play it up all nice and get you to apply and take a deposit (which was returned) but total lead on then drop you like you are a piece of garbage. No explanations and then endless circle of passing the buck to somebody else in the management team. A farse. I will never recommend anybody to give people like this their business.

This would be an amazing building if owners would spend some money on fixing it up. Supers are lackadaisical in getting repairs completed. Beautiful area and spectacular views however, the mold and dirt on balconies makes it an eyesore from afar. Painting & repairs are of very poor quality and not up to snuff. Building has a strong garbage odour as the garbage area is open to service elevator and permeates all over. I have made repairs and upgrades at my own expense. Apartments are quite large and laid out very well. Good value for the size. They would certainly be able to increase rent if they made some much needed repairs & renos. Lacks visitor parking and what they do have is always used by the low rental building across the street. Start ticketing & towing, and stop being complacent,

Dishwasher broke and they left it for over a month without fixing after I had to report it in writing. Elevators always in need of attention. Have been stuck a couple times and they just keep trying to keep them running. Feels not safe. Area is lovely and view is amazing but I am leaving this building because of problems getting anything fixed. Supposed to have a remodelled kitchen but u have to complain in writing to get this completed and then you wait and nothing happens. They don't volunteer to upgrade anything. I wouldn't recommend.

The owner(s) of the building are hesitant to fix anything. Elevators are always being repaired. No accessibility for seniors/handicapped.

Now, the people that work in the building are great, even though they're stuck behind the owners (ya it takes a long time to get things done, but just keep pushing). The property manager is doing her best to get things organized and completed.

The people that live in the building are generally good people, the area is gorgeous (especially for walking dogs), and the neighbourhood is typical of the west end of Ottawa - mostly good.
