I lived at this apartment for a period of a year and a half. I was immediately approved for a 6 month lease on a one bedroom which was fair priced. My apartment was one of the top floors so it was fairly quiet and had a good view of central park which i liked and let in a lot of sun. There was carpeting in both the drawing room and the bedroom and central air ducts.

I did not notice any real problems in the beginning besides the main doors boarded up or that EMS, police fire and ambulances would visit the place very frequently. Once, i found the main entrance to the building had its glass window smashed and it was boarded up with a wooden panel for many weeks before being replaced.

My problems started with putting in of any maintenance requests. Weeks would pass and nothing would be done about it. My mother used to live with me at the time and would be home by herself. She called me in a panic once and told me that the maintenance guy had finally showed up to fix the toilet while she was taking a shower and just walked right into the suite and had keys to dangling on his waist to all the suites. I found that very irresponsible on part of the management and complained as i did not think this was appropriate as no notice of entry was given 24 hours prior and i found it ridiculous that maintenance guys were carrying keys to all suites and entering them as they saw fit.

As summer approached it started getting really hot in the apartment and i noticed that the central air was one in name and that it wouldn't cool the suite at all and that it would simply make a humming sound. I put in a request and weeks later it was fixed. I remember sleeping uncomfortably in the heat with windows open and fans going as each night dragged on.

The car parking area was ok in my estimate as it was inside the building and was very hard for someone to get access to it but its exposed to the elements and not heated while i was there. I would find a lot of pigeon droppings on my car pretty much every morning in the winter which is not really a big deal.

I had had enough of the area in general and wanted to move out and was asked to give notice to head office which was in calgary. I called them and let them know that i intended to move out at the end of my lease. I was asked to fax it in. I faxed it in writ and called in and was told by the agent that they had no way of checking if they had received the fax. Either way, i kept calling and following up as the management office downstairs was simply there to collect payments and had nothing to do with giving notice and intention to move out.

I was finally informed that they had received my request and i could move out. Come move out day, no set time was agreed on for a move out inspection and i was under the impression that it would take place on the weekend as the 1st fell on the weekend and i still had a couple of days to it. I got a call at 4 pm saying a rep was coming upstairs to conduct a move out inspection. I informed her that i wasn't even ready. I had only moved off half of my stuff. She said, well that's too bad as i am leaving at 430.

I moved all the stuff in a panic and cleaned the apartment as well as returned the keys to the drop off box that the downstairs management room had. As far as i was concerned, we were done and i was at my new place. I called and didn't get my deposit back as they were insisting that i would get charged another month as i didn't move out in time. I informed her that i wasn't even informed ahead of time of what time i was to move out by. Anyways, i had to go to the Rental and tenancies and get my deposit back.

I've lived here for two years and I love it. The price is fantastic for living downtown. There is security in the building as well as the exchange and community patrol so I always feel safe. The building is full of families and students from everywhere in the world and I've met so many interesting people. I also love that you can have pets, but because the building is concrete you don't have to worry about if your dog is badly. I've never had bugs and I don't know anyone who has. I know a better management company bought the building a few years ago. The staff here is always helpful and friendly too.
I highly recommend this building.

Management has their work cut out for them but they certainly try. Maintenance requests are responded to promptly. Building crew cleans regularly but is hardly noticeable as tenants/guests would continue to litter/vandalize common areas. There is security in the building almost all the time and for good reason - neighborhood is incredibly shady; lots of drunks and druggies strewn about, some prone to violence. The elevators are almost always broken. Heating/cooling is occasionally undependable - have gone though months in the summer without A/C. The suite is ok; hardly any issues with hot water, noise or storage. Rent is very reasonable, but you get what you pay for.

I would have been okay with slow and ever-busy elevators and with a bedroom that is only good for a twin-size bed if it wasn't for the constant noise. The soundproofing here is virtually non-existent, so you'll hear all the parties, all the cranked up tv sounds and the construction noises. Even if someone is talking in the hallway, you'll be sure to hear it very well. The tenants are not considerate and will do all these things.
Besides, the area around here is a bit rough, and all the major bus routes are about 10 min walk away. The halls and elevators sometimes reek of weed. People buy and sell weed right under the building. All of it makes for a rather shady impression.

Be aware of CHEATERS!!! They will not give you back your last month payment.
And, of course, be prepared to pay $100+ for steam cleaning from your security deposit when you move out.

Would not DEFINITELY recommend to live there!
