The building was built as an apartment in the mid 1950s & converted into condos about 8 to 9 years ago. The building is a nice size of 3 stories with 14 units ranging from bachelor to one bedroom.

Comfortable neighbourhood to walk. The building is close to amenities, parks, churches, an outdoor pool and schools. 10 to 20 min walk to Safeway, no frills, dollar store, chicken chef, walk in clinic, dentist, marion bar, LC, hospital and a vet clinic. It is on a major street being Marion with a a major bus route.

The building hired a cleaning company which does attend to the inside of building bi monthly. However, it is evident deep cleaning of carpets has not been done or outside windows.

Outside summer lawn care is often delayed. Grass is often unkempt. No flowers. No lawn re touches are done, but needed from pet urine. During the winter snow clearing and de icing are provided, but is very often delayed & lacks throughness.

As stated the building is an older concrete building. Updates to the interior/exterior building could be done such as painting, new carpets, etc. The suites have been re modelled around 2009 with laminate floors, newer windows, newer appliances, paint, etc.

The building is pet friendly.

Thr dyanmics of the building is such that the majority of the condos are in fact rented out. Some condos are used to rent out to very short term renters. There is with only a handful of owners residing in the condos. There is no on site manager.

Property management works with the condo board to handle and prioritize building & maintence issues.

The hot water pressure is fair at best. There is no in suite heat control. There is no air conditioning per suite; one must purchase one or if renting have owner get window air conditioner.

As of the past couple of years there have been numerous disruptive tennents & police contacts to the building.

There is no working secure entry buzzer box. Tenants and owners are advised against letting unknown people in the building, but this has been a concern. Doors to the building have been left ajar at times.

There is no storage units available for use.

Parking is fair. There is a lot next to the building that one can pay the neighbouring landlord to park for a reasonable monthly rate if a spot is availble. However, there is no visitor parking. Parking on marion has limitations during rush hour.

There is a laundry area which currently is free of charge however there is only 1 washer and 1 dryer for the whole building so it can get a bit hectic at times. Also tennents and owners' guests have been known to use the facitilies as well.

The fitness area is a couple of very dated machines with questionable working order.

They did not inspect all suites. As some suites are bought out and not rented. One suite was infested with bed bugs they should take proper honest action before writing reviews. All suites should be sprayed. Not just a few. If they are found in one they will travel.

The building is wonderfully located close to parks, Tim Horton's groceries, buses,and is a brisk 40 minute walk to downtown Winnipeg.The building was converted to condo 7 years ago and is overall well maintained. The rented suites are very carefully monitored by the owners and by the on-site manager and with one exception who left in February, 2017, there have been no problem tenants.This was an angry renter who claimed that a dead bug found between the mattress and box of his newly acquired used bed was a bedbug. The management company had the suites attended by Activ Pest Control 4 times, whose bedbug and pest expert verified from the start that there were no bed bugs. Most of the residents are condo owners and so the buiding is a good place to be.

Infested with firebrats and silverfish. No caretaker in building. Awful experience!
