This building is disgustingly dirty and smells like garbage. There are bed bugs, cockroaches and ant problems. Last year a sign was posted regarding mice and for tenants to ensure they keep the doors closed. At the rear there are dog droppings and garbage strewn about. In the summer the bins are left dripping and leaking. The main entrance smells bad and is not welcoming. There is no visitor parking. The parking tickets are approx. $60. Staff will ask visitors if they paid for parking!
The staff are extremely rude and impossible to deal with and it's been like this for many, many years. There is a very high staff turnover and therefore a lack of continuity. The repairs are done eventually but the workmanship is poor. Any "upgrades" they have tried to undertake result in nothing but an inconvenience for tenants.
Most recently windows were changed and this was nothing but a hassle as furniture and curtains etc. in every room had to be moved and then tenants had to leave for the day as it was impossible to stay during this work. Nothing was offered to the tenants for this disruption. It is always something like replacing water conserving toilets or new thermostats (so they can now charge new tenants for heat) The new windows are no better than the old ones as they have condensation and leak in cold air. The new door is not flush with the jam. What a waste of everyone's time and energy.
Any messages or letters sent to the property manager at head office have never ever been returned. Very unprofessional to say the least. Most just give up trying to contact management at the main head office.
All tenants received very detailed notice there is asbestos in this building a few years ago. notice lists how to deal with the problem, no sanding etc. and tarps have to be put up but this is not adhered to when work is being done so why give any warning if they come in and drill and sand and hammer and then don't follow the guidelines?
The outside wall leaks and the inside drywall has to be replaced every few years so there is most likely mould and moisture damages.
A few winters ago the power went out completely in the whole building for a number of days and people had to evacuate with no direction from staff, in the dark, down the stairs etc. Tenants helped each other, those with babies, children, the elderly and disabled were left on their own to carry belongings. Tenants provided flashlights for each other and pulled together. Management gave some tenants 50$ Walmart gift cards which did not begin to cover the cost of food and motel rooms, batteries, flash lights etc. Insulting to those low income people. They failed to recognize the hardship for many who stayed in their cold apartment and had no where to go. Very unfortunate, do not move here.

Never ever ever ever ever live here. Bed bugs, cock roaches, ants and MOLD. Very unsanitary building. They hired Home Depot (terrible company for extermination) to treat which came 4 times to treat our unit and it never got better. We HAD to leave because of the levels of infestation. Hundreds of cockroaches, hundreds of bed bugs, and hundreds of ants killed frequently. We asked the exterminator why the building refused to treat top to bottom floor and they said they’d get around to it. When I asked the building they said it’s a localized issue. When I spoke to removed> the building manager she said every homestead building has bed bugs. If you want to have to replace all your furniture, deal with bites all of your body, and cockroaches eating your food and crawling on your floor while you sleep, then this is the place for you. Otherwise RUN. They won’t treat it like I told them they should, they will continue taking your money and not telling future tenants of the infestation till it’s to late and you signed a lease. Our super told us when we left they were going to gut the unit for the next tenant and the day we we’re moving out they entered and started to paint the walls. Doesn’t seem like they are “gutting” anything!?? Unhealthy, grosse, stressful, poorly managed, neglected are all words I would describe this building.

My boyfriend and I rented a 1 bedroom apartment from Homestead at this location about 7 months ago. The overall size of the unit was more than enough for us both. The balcony was great and large in size. We did not rent a storage locker downstairs and often stores our things on the balcony.

The apartment building itself smelt like piss and garbage nearly every day. The fob system was down for several months and management kept the back door open and no camera —— how does this ensure your tenants are safe, especially with children around? The laundry room was always clean and never had to really wait for a washer or dryer.

We ended up breaking our lease due to the cockroaches on our floor. Management did nothing for months to fix this, meanwhile they told me they were doing what they could. The roaches were coming from a nearby apartment and every time you enter and leave your unit you saw at least 10 roaches. The building also has an issue with ants. The colour of the floor makes it difficult to actually see them. Pest control was at our unit nearly every 2 weeks but treatment didn’t seem to be effective.

size of 1 bedroom unit is quite good. windows need updating. lots of laundry units available, never have to wait to do laundry. garbage bins / recycling bins usually overflow, there used to be a bigger garbage bin when I first moved in, not sure what happened to it. have never seen cockroaches, but ants are a big and annoying problem. neighbourhood is very good, lots of stores nearby (grocery, shopping, food) and isn't too far from the 417.
