The fontana could be so great, but unfortunately the company that owns it doesn't invest anything in to repairing it. It was pretty run down when I lived there in 2011.

That said, the suites themselves are pretty excellent. They're enormous. Working fireplace. Lots of natural light in the front rooms. The back where the kitchen was kind of felt like a dungeon because it was so dark. Our fire escape was covered in pigeon poo and was pretty disgusting at all times. Definitely avoided going out that door.

Parking was the biggest issue I ran into at this building. Street parking on Stradbrook is nearly impossible, especially in the winter when there is a winter ban and you can only park on side streets. I would often end up driving around for sometimes up to 45 minutes looking for parking.

Security is non existent at this building. I don't think the buzzer worked. There was a homeless guy passed out in the hallway once. We asked him to leave and he hid in the basement. Also note, the basement is creepy as hell already without homeless men hiding in it.

Laundry was dismal. Old machines, expensive, and in the creepy basement. Storage did not exist. Caretakers weren't helpful.

We were on the top floor so it was decently quiet. Squeaky floors though.

Decent because of the size and character, otherwise pretty dumpy.

Overall this place is pretty good. The well maintained suites are a gem. Its a good location, suites are huge and full of character. Only major problem is the agency doesn't repair things well and are hard to get a hold of. The caretaker was good when I was there in 2011. Noise was only bad if you were by the fire escape or if someone was in a band and playing loud (but even then it wasn't horrible).

The agency should really renovate more because this is a beautiful building.
