We have had an exterminator in 5 times, 3 times treated for bed bugs, 2 other inspections
Every single time the exterminator came he found no evidence of bed bugs, but we get bites all the time and have found bugs on 3 separate occasions. Every time we come home after the exterminator is here, our entire house is upside down and we have to put it back together again, and we get bites within days of the treatment. We have been living out of garbage bags for months and have done every single thing possible to keep up our end of the extermination and nothing helps
Half the time they send a notice, it is dated at least a day before we actually recieve it. The people at the management office seem to be very rude and dont listen
We applied to leave at the end of the lease without 2 months notice, thankfully that was accepted, but we are leaving all of our stuff behind so as not to risk infesting our new place
I have many many more complaints about this apartment but bed bugs are the main one and I just want to warn everyone to never ever move into this building
We have heard that almost everyone on our floor has had them atleast 1 time or another . Do yourself a favour and never ever step foot in this building
I have nightmares every day and have been prescribed heavy sleeping pills which just barely keep me asleep because of these bugs

THERE ARE BED BUGS. YOU WILL GET THEM EVENTUALLY. IT WAS A NIGHTMARE. I ACTUALLY STILL HAVE NIGHTMARES ABOUT IT.

Full Disclosure: There was a flyer up in the lobby warning residents of BED BUGS - I should've known better ....

The windows are large, but OLD and CREAKY. The balconies are large, but the view is lackluster. The laundry machines are overpriced and ineffective. The maintenance staff are great, friendly, helpful, etc. The office staff - are OK.

The first shooting of 2018 was outside the building - google it if you don't believe me. I heard the gunshots... very scary.

Utilities included are nice. The hot water will scald you, which I kind of liked ...

they lowered the rent because the property taxes went down, so they legally had to, but I see now they increased the rent for new tenants from the 900$ to 1380$ for a one bedroom LOL with bugs !? good luck with that.

The pool is COLD and always seems to be closed for maintenance .. like in the heat wave lol thanks for that

...and who cares about the gym, there's one across the street open 24/7

I would say, keep looking.

If you like nearby shootings, BED BUGS and getting your tires slashed then you've found home ! If you like broken laundry machines, malfunctioning garage doors, and staring at cement - look no further. Do you love being ignored, waiting months for repairs / BED BUG TREATMENTS - and excessive fire alarm testing, you've found your haven. Don't forget the lovely echo you get between the two buildings , really helps you get to know your neighbours ! And hey! The lobby looks great !

This building is full of BED BUGS. I lived in the building for a few years. Only in the last year had the bugs. My body was full of bites and itchy. Had to throw out a full apartment of furniture (of which my $3,500 bedroom suite), 2 couches ($1,000 each), arm chair (2 @ $500 each) amongst other pieces of furniture... had all clothing removed from closets; drawers, etc., bedding removed from beds. What furniture I had left was moved away from walls. Still this was NOT good enough for Orkin.
According to management, my unit was the ONLY one with the bugs and that I brought them into the building. Obviously with the previous comment posted on here, I definately NOT the only unit. Every week there were mattresses and other furniture out at the garbage bin area (all with evidence of Bed Bugs).
Parking lot was supposed to be resurfaced and was supposed to take one month, it took 3. Pool was supposed to be repaired and was supposed to take approximately 1 month, took whole summer and then some.
I would not recommend this building to my worst enemy, let alone any friends.
