I have lived here for a couple years now. I have a great, completely renovated unit, however, there are issues in the building, despite management's best efforts. I have a clean apartment, never leave food lying around, empty my garbage frequently and yet I have had cockroaches in my apartment sporadically since October. I have had numerous treatments to remedy the situation but they still enter my apartment through tiny cracks in the walls. Cockroaches are also present in the laundry room. There are often police officers at the building, with fights breaking out in the lobby, the front doors being smashed in and fire extinguishers being sprayed, resulting in the evacuation of the building on multiple occasions. Although it has cheap rent, air conditioning, nice units, and decent management, there are issues in this building that are beyond your control and are problematic to say the least.

I am posting here in hopes of saving someone the absolute headache I have experienced over the last year.

Both 1971 and 1975 st Laurent towers have BED BUGS and multiple over insects.

Upon moving in you will be reassured there is no bed bugs or other bugs present - that is completely false

Upon asking the office about this after have MULTIPLE bed bug inspections and confirmation of bed bugs on several floors from tenants and watching carpets be ripped out and furniture be taken out...

Because of the terrible wiring in the building my internet service has gone out 6 times due to the main set up in the building.

There are police present at the building on almost a nightly basis.
There is CONSTANT fights and issues with individuals as you are surrounded.by Ottawa public housing.

The fire alarms are CONSTANTLY being set off throughout the night, and fire extinguishers have been set off through the vents on more then one occasion in the last year of living here.

Furniture that is disposed of for bed bugs is not done so properly and I have witnessed tenants BRING BACK IN infested furniture.

In your total rent you are paying for your A/C unit, ours has not been running since summer has started. When it became warm they sent out multiple memos stating they were fixing the ac to better suit their tenants needs yet we are approaching a heatwave and it is STILL not complete but there are no visible companies working on the unit or a crane present as the memo stated.

I have been ignored as to why some tenants were offered a rent reduction for lack of AC yet I have not.
Homestead also tried to tell me I had to be moved out by the 28 so they could further prep the apartment for a new tenant BUT when I arrived the apartment was NOT at all ready and we were told there was never any chance of moving in early.
Lastly, Homestead has entered my apartment on TWO different occasions without prior warning as required. (24 hour notice)

I have rented in ottawa for the last 7 years and 1975 st Laurent towers was by far the WORST living experience I have ever had

If you want to live with bedbugs and constant police action this is the place for you.

It’s a great area but with in three days of moving in I found 2 live cockroaches with in 24 hours of each other. I was able to leave and they were good enough to give me last months rent back.

I just moved here not to long ago and I loved my apartment, it's spacious and clean, (at first glance). The night I moved here I was exhausted and didn't set up my bed, so I slept on my mattress on the floor. During the night I was tossing and turning, when I woke up I realized I signed the next year of my life away to a BED BUG nightmare. From talking to tenants in both 1975 and 1971 buildings, the general consensus is that there is a BED BUG and cockroach infestation. During the day everything is fine I might see 1 or 2 bed bugs but at night Woah , I spent more time looking at the floor killing bedbugs with pesticide than watching tv on my 55" flatscreen.
My couch is basically cosmetic at this point and I haven't invited anyone over to see the place in fear of them discovering I have bed bugs and being a pariah.
If one person sees that I have bed bugs no one is ever going to come over or invite me over. I hate it here. DO NOT RENT HERE!!!! You have been warned

Worst building you can possible live in. About the parking, first day i moved in they told me I can park at that spot, then i got a warning from the ticket guy.
Also same day as i was moving in, multiple people who lived in the building told me there are bed bugs all over the building. As i lived here for a year, there so many bed bugs i found under my bed, it was the most disgusting thing i ever seen. They costed me so much money trying to fix my things, throwing away furniture, and using the dryer every day. They did treatment in my apartment twice and still there is lots of bugs. not just bed bugs, all kinds of bugs. roaches, flies, etc.
I tell the office about it, they told me the "professional" said there were NO ACTIVITY HAHAHAHA. then she called me and my family dirty ! the whole building is the throwing away their furniture every day ! every one tells me they have bed bugs.
So i tell her we are leaving early because this problem cant be solved and caused too much trouble, then she says she will call collections to get money from us.
ITS A SCAM COMPANY. YOU WILL LOSE SO MUCH MONEY IF YOU LIVE HERE. DONT ! THEY MADE MY LIFE <removed> HELL. damn disgusting building !
