Save yourself a massive headache and do NOT move into this building. Rent increases are always well above guidelines with no maintenance or upgrades to your suite and if work is actually done in your apartment it is substandard and the contractors leave messes for you, the tenant to clean up. Unresponsive management refuses to deal with negligent, unprofessional, caretaker. The building is dirty in some common areas and rarely cleaned. Lightbulbs in common areas are burnt out for months at a time. For years, the heat ran on full all the time so we were living in what felt like a sauna. Now we are actually cold because the heat isn't on enough during the day. I wouldn't recommend moving into any Smith Agency buildings because they will not deal with issues when they arise but especially not this building in particular because of the caretaker.

I also have been threatened to be kicked out because I didn't sign my lease, but they actually had my lease, but read the date of expiry wrong. They also have a long history of shutting off the water with no notice, and then blaming it on the City, saying the City shut it off. After the 3rd time this happened in a few months, I called the City and they confirmed that they did not shut the water off. The rent keeps going up by approx 10% a year, and nothing ever seems to get fixed. I had to wait almost a week to have my bathtub fixed. I had to drive 20 mins to take a shower at a friends house. They also have a guy that lives in the basement, to "clean" but all I ever see him do is pick up cigarette butts off the ground to smoke, and dumpster drive, and bring his dumpster treasure into the common areas. NOT COOL. The only plus is the location otherwise I'd move. The caretakers are friendly, but useless. The celings are paper thin...I can hear my neighbor coughing and sneezing! = no privacy!!!

No insulation in between floors. I can hear EVERYTHING my neighbor does upstairs. The caretakers are never to be seen. They never clear the walkways of snow. I've had to remove rotting garbage bags out of the fire escape and parking lot myself. Management is useless. They threatened to kick me out because they claimed I didn't sign my lease. What actually happened is they misplaced their copy. Caretakers are nice, but things don't get fixed for MONTHS and MONTHS. Location is awesome. There is no security cameras, but I do feel very safe in the building. The building is generally clean because most tenants are respectful of common areas.
