Reviewer says...
I have been living here for 20 years. This apartment has pros and cons:
Pros: conveniently located with a 24h grocery store across the street and one more a few blocks away, library, 2 city of Ottawa Swimming pools, bike paths, block away from Rideau Mall, drug store, corner store, bus transit...
Generally clean due to good maintenance who cleans common areas daily
Good management, work hard to resolve issues.
Perfect for students, close to Ottawa U.
Reasonable rental price
Roof deck with a gardening program. You can choose a gardening plot for free and grow what you want. Landlord even provides you with a choice of 8 free starter plants a year from herbs to tomatoes to beautiful flowers.

Cons Majority of tenants are unhealthy unemployed or on disability for mental health issues.
(Some units are subsidized and some are full market rent if you are employed.)
They are a difficult population to live with/ get along with.
Smoking: not a smoke free building so if you are not a smoker like me it will be a problem. coming in and out of the building there is always a group of smokers at entrance. My unemployed beer drinking neighbor smokes all day, coughs constantly, gets drunk and yells profanities on the balcony. Cannot enjoy my days off. I must close all my windows and suffocate in the summer heat.Landlord cannot doe anything to help me. Suggested I get AC but AC worsens my arthritis and makes me sick.
Unsafe neighborhood. Several murders here in the past few decades (google it) Several homeless people from surrounding shelters and nearby halfway houses. Some sneak up in the building and do drugs in the stairwell. Last saturday morning on my way out to work at 7am a homeless man in his underwear sleeping at the main door entrance. On my way home from work came in on the side entrance , guy and girl doing drugs with a needle.
Very noisy. Lots of students in the area get drunk in the weekends and you can hear them. Garage next door is noisy. Grocery store trucks that deliver merchandise at odd hours and wake you up. Student neighbors can also be loud. If you are looking for quiet, this is not the place.
Dirty tenants. Laundry machines are filthy in the weekends. Some bed bugs have been found in units although landlord is pretty good at eradicating.
Rental Price does not include anything. Heat, hydro and hot water tank rental must be paid separately. Parking is additional. No other amenities like exercise room, party room or pool.For the price paid here it is possible to get a unit which includes all these however maybe not as well located.
bicycle room is not safe. Had my bicycle stolen some years ago.
Maintenance is slow at responding to your request. My whole building floor had an aunt problem last year. It took several months of us getting together and pressuring them until they did something about it. Maintenance is also lately neglectful. last year they came in for anual unit maintenance. They left my apt. door unlocked and I was out of town!! I was lucky nothing was stolen. My apt. was a mess, they came in with dirty boots, used up my papertowels to clean up their own mess and didn't even bother properly whipping the counters they dirtied. Hard to trust a landlord who can't even lock up after inspecting your unit!
