There is a sum-up of this location at the end of this review.

This location has gone through a complete overhaul in the past year. The introduction of a caretaker and a property management team has revamped the atmosphere, safety, cleanliness and upkeep of the building. The dated hallways and carpets are left to be desired, but leads into renovated suites with plenty of amenities.

The bachelor and 1 bedrooms suites have been renovated to the same extent, which includes:
- Bamboo Flooring
- Granite Countertops
- Double Sinks
- Matching 3 piece appliances (Fridge, Stove, Microwave)
- Large Modern Windows

The outdated exterior of the building, including the entryways, are forgotten when you enter the suites. The saying "Don't judge a book by its cover" reigns true.

The addition of a live-in caretaker has allowed the building to maintain a cleanliness level, and the caretaker tends to be responsive when an issue arrives. Snow-clearing in the winter, landscaping in the summer.

Thorough checks are done when potential tenants apply to this location, thanks to the incorporation of the management company (as of 2019 ASH Management). This allows proper screening to be done to prevent any undesirables living in the suites and causing a disturbance.

There are two areas that can be seen as underdeveloped or undesirable in this property. When the building was constructed (or renovated) it is apparent to see that it was built for quantity, not space. This means a lack of storage in the suites and storage options in the building, I would not recommend this location for a family or anyone that has large furniture.

The management company can be difficult to work with, especially when there is an issue at hand. The caretaker would be your first priority, but in the advent that person is not available, ASH management would take over. It works like a hierarchy, rather than a cooperation between the owner of the building, the management company, and the caretaker. Of course the caretaker not being available until the evenings did not aid in this experience. The owner is nice and generally wants the best for his tenants, as well as to make money on the property. It is beyond me on why a management company was implemented when the building is only 8 suites, and can be handled by a little due-diligence. It is clear that for ASH management, they are only interested is in money and profit. They will respond promptly to issues that make them money, but tend to be slow when it comes to issues that are more difficult to deal with or cannot be addressed by a simple email/call. I personally have not witnessed ASH management have a conversation with the caretaker. It seems that they are understaffed and overworked, if that is not the case, then negligible would be an appropriate term.

You will be living on Marion Street, which is a main thoroughfare. This means that at peak hours, it will be noisy outside. The modern windows cut out a large amount of traffic noise on dry days, as well as sirens and honking. On wet days you will hear the melodic hum of the cars as they travel through the puddles, nothing of major concern.

This building currently (as of 2019) does not have a working intercom system, which the management company, caretaker and owner of the building have been made aware of. This means that if a package is expected or if a guest arrives, they will have to call you and you will have to manually let them in. This isn't the worst thing in the world, but it is inconvenient. The building parking lot has a large deep pothole which occupies half of the entrance that has not been addressed. The parking lot is also in a location that is difficult to get to if you are coming up Marion, especially during rush hour.

All in all, this location has been revamped from its days in 2014, the location is prime; close to two grocery stores, Accessible bus routes, Dominion Centre, and the scenic Seine River. The Units are a little rough around the edges, but maintain a modern appeal. The management company deals with the application process, meaning the troublesome individuals are no longer an issue.

In SUM:
The units are modern and appealing, even if lacking storage.
The in-building laundry machines coin-op and inexpensive and are high quality.
Going from cold to hot water is responsive and you do not have to run your taps for very long.
You are in a wonderful, culture rich, neighbourhood close to amenities and entertainment.
The Management Company and Owner are responsive, but at times can be a little difficult.
There is no working intercom system.
There is a large pothole that inhibits entrance to the parking lot.
Caretaker is only available in the evening (as of 2019)
Rent is atrociously high, especially given the size of the units. ASH management states that the suites start at $700, which is true, but there is only 1 in the building listed at the price. Majority of the Bachelors are $900+, the 1 bedrooms are upwards of $1200.

As of December 2017, a new caretaker has taken over which ads a youthful energy to the environment. Meaning, things get done. The place has gone through new renovations including granite countertops which are stupendous. Bug free and the caretaker makes sure the building is cleaned thoroughly once a week. In the summer time this means weeding and lawncare.
Currently there are 3 suites available to rent out as the owner of the building and new management company take applications more seriously, including a more in depth background check.

This has all transformed what was once deemed a troublesome building into a prime location on Marion.
A bit expensive but the location and conditions are worth it.

Police are always looking for people in this building! The Landlord rents out apartments without doing background checks! It is not a safe place to live and I regret renting here. Do not rent here! He will take your damage deposit when he knows the appliances are old. The building is filthy and the front is full of weeds never any grass! He is turning St Boniface into a shithole!

Do NOT Rent Here! ONLY if you're desperate.

The building is never clean. Inside or out. the landlord is a NUT who harasses you and also lets anyone move in. Worst living experience ever. Glad I moved.
