Avoid at all costs!! I repeat. AVOID

Where to begin...

The fire alarm always goes off for no reason, the water stops working once in a while, management is terrible and doesn't answer requests, there are ants, roaches , bed bugs, pipes bursted during winter at -20, the apartment is either too cold or too hot, the fridge makes awful noise, the laundry machines always break down, the bathroom fan doesn't work, we had to seal our windows, people steal packages and broke into the storage lockers, neighbours are loud and never seem to sleep, the elevators always break down....

The building is infested with ants, cockroaches, and more recently bed bugs.

Maintenance is sometimes slow, but generally gets done. Pest control, however, does seem to be taken seriously. I have called three times for cockroaches and ants which I saw almost as soon as I moved in. Each time they put some poisoned bait and call it a day. Seeing bed bugs recently is the last straw for me.

The windows are the original ones from when the building was constructed and are no longer sealed properly. On very hot or cold days this is a huge issue. The landlord says that they don't want people using space heaters but everyone in the building has one simply to survive the winter. This is not an exaggeration. Last winter the temperature in my unit dropped to 14 degrees Celsius on a very cold day. In another instance two (!!) pipes burst in the building due to the cold, flooding several floors and causing damage to property in many units.

Parking garage is nice though and has a DIY car wash.

Rent with Minto for over 3 years.Their management is really *****.I would suggest never rent with Minto ever again. Ask for my rent receipt for like 10 times , now 2 months has past, still not got it.Pay rent by cheque, they said they lost it :) Check with bank, said Minto has already cash the cheque. Called Minto for like several times for it ,still didn't solve the problem.Now i had move out 1755 for over 2 months, i still have outstanding balance which i didn't owe them at all :) Office opens only once a week.Never pick up the phone. Please take my advice.
