BUILDING IS UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT!

And the new building manager is great! If something is wrong with your suite, she is on top of it. She knows how to treat people and is very understanding, probably the best building manager I've ever had.

This building has come a long way from where it was before. It is true, you do get what you pay for, but when your paying $900 a month, you should expect to live somewhere where it is clean, welcoming to come home to everyday, you feel safe, and valued as a tenant. In my opinion, this building now meets those standards. It is a great place to live, but it is an older building, so of course it could be better.

This is a non-smoking building and the people that live here are very friendly and well-mannered. There is a secured underground garage with good lighting which makes it much more comfortable entering your home if your coming home late at night.

The reviews made on here before were accurate, but this building has changed. I would recommend this building as a home to a family member or close friend.

The building has a really bad mice problem, and not much is done about it. The suites are poorly constucted so there are lots of holes for them to get in (especially where cupboards, etc. have been constructed). I was personally told by the manager that one suite had bed bugs when they brought in somebody to do inspections, although they deny it on sites like "bed bug registry". I had a minor problem with mold around the windows, but I am not sure if it was a big problem in other suites as the previous post suggests.

All of the above is bad, but what makes this place really unlivable is the manager ****. I would rather live with 100 mice and a bed bug infestation in my apartment then to be in the same building as her. She is one of the worst people I have ever met, and I agree with the previous posting that she is a rude, abusive bully. There have been many problems in the past because of her and the owner of the building always sticks up for her, probably because she always tries to keep your damage deposit. She is also unstable and basically goes crazy and yells if you don't just accept whatever injustice she tries to impose on you. She is a liar and I know that she has tried a rent cheque scam on at least one tenant. She has angered many tenants; I have heard many people yell and swear at her, and someone even crapped on the stairs and spread it over the building because she pissed them off.

As for security, the manager once put keys in the door of every suite for about 45 minutes so that the pest inspector could have easy access. Keep in mind that it was in the middle of the day and many people probably were not home. Anybody could have walked down that hall and entered any apartment or stolen the keys because she was not watching the doors.

Oh yeah, and one last note, a SWAT team was once sent complete with assault rifles to a small house that is just down the street a few meters. I read in the newspaper the next day that some criminals were storing a cache of weapons in the old rundown house. Its not a very good neighbourhood.

Avoid this building at all costs. Live in your car if you have to. Anything would be better than this place.

This building has mice, bed bugs and mould. Manager **** is a bully - very rude and abusive. Owner of the building supports her in everything, even though she lies to him. She messes up and then tell the owner it was tenants fault and she didn’t do anything wrong. According to her, nothing is ever her fault – it’s always everybody else’s fault. She also doesn’t fix anything while it’s still a small problem. She waits for it to fall apart and then pretends she didn’t know there was a problem. Stay away from this building.
