This place needs lots of fixing and cleaning, and pretty much everything is on its last legs or broken.
It could be a decent building to live if it's restored, had proper management and get rid of few sketchy tenants in the back side units.
Virtually no maintenance or management, whole place smells of cigarettes, pot and old carpets. Hugely overpriced, you can find much better units in this part of town for same or less price. I wouldn't recommend this building.

Whoever posted the second comment is clearly either one of the sketchy tenants or the landlord himself or the manager who doesn’t do his job. The appaling state of this property can be easily verified simply by walking corridors of the building and observing area around it. There is virtually no maintenance at all. As for safety, you only need to speak to tenants who have been robbed and had their locked property stolen from the hallways and common areas. Complete nonsense scibbled by someone who obviously has either no knowledge of what is happening in this building or are purposely lying in their own defence. Only 4 tenants remain who have been here for more than 5 years, everyone else is forced to come and go, speaks volumes about what kind of building this is. Oh, and as for the smoking goes, it is only offical policy it’s not allowed, in reality there are tenants who smoke in their units, as you can tell by smell of smoke coming through the vents, and even more obvious at night you can see some tenants in their units smoking. Of course management has done nothing about it either.

Hi I'm responding to the last review. While it is true that the heat acts up and we only have one washer and dryer the other comments are in fact false. I don't know of any bad tenants currently. Building is safe and like any apartment building if you leave stuff in the halls then yes you may find it missing.
Landlords are far from slumlords. I have yet to meet the sketchy tenants with sketchy visitors and as for tenants in fear of speaking up sorry but I don't see it. Ive be never had a problem contacting building manager and if something needs to be done it is.... Sorry but not everything can be dealt with the same day

Love the building and the neighbours

Extremely bad building to live in. No maintenance whatsoever, corridors are dirty and have smelly old carpets from the time building was built, which was more than 60 years ago. Parking lot in the back is neglected and out of few available parking spots, one is reserved only for building manager who comes there once a month to collect rent. That btw is the only thing he does. Building manager doesn't respond to any tenants issues such as repairs or sanitary issues. Laundry room is basically dirty basement filled with all kinds of garbage and old furniture with one washer and one dryer that are broken every so often and require tenants to call repairman themselves. Building manager and one of the owners have preferential treatment when unit becomes available and give them to aquaintances. Some tenants are ok but in fear to speak up because they lived there so long and are trying to hold on to their low rent. There are few really bad tenants, sketchy characters with loud noise and suspicious looking visitors at all hours of day and night. They are brought in on much higher rent and are given free pass to terrorize the rest of the building. There have been numerous reports of bedbugs and cockroaches in several units, about which nothing was done by management to this day. Wiring and plumbing are in disrepair and building is not safe for personal belongings. There have been number of thefts in hallways of tenants bicycles and other items, either by people walking in or by some of the tenant's visitors. The only way to resolve any issue is to move out, which is exactly what building manager and owner want so that they can get someone else and hike up the rent. Typical slum landlord situation. There are many buildings you can find in Vancouver that are properly managed, safe, clean and still cheaper than this dump. Don't even consider this place or you will end up losing money, won't have any peace of mind and will be subjected to horrible living conditions.
