Despite all of searching I did prior to signing a lease here, I could not find anything about all of the problems this place has. Now I'm here to tell my story. I can verify surely that this place has both an issue with cockroaches and bed bugs. I've been fortunate to only have isolated cases in my unit but knowing if i would stay here longer then my lease the issue would have gotten worse. A former roommate I had put a dent in the front hallway before I moved in. He moved in 2 weeks prior to when I did. When I put in the maintenance request to set up my buzzer, I also asked for that hole to be patched because i was not the one who put it there and it happened before i moved in. Imagine my shock when only one out of the 2 requests were filled. I was told that someone would eventually be sent to repair it. This was 10.5 months ago! Now that I intend to move out the building wants to do a pre-move out inspection which is pretty standard but the last thing I need is to be dinged for something that wasn't addressed. Between those issues then the constant police in the building in the first half of the tenancy and the junkies yelling outside it got rather tiresome. within the last few months other tenants in the building have been robbed or apartments broken into. A friend of my current roommate who lives 2 floors up had her car stolen and the neighbor down the hall had his $800 bike stolen after he was told to put it downstairs. Long and short of everything, this building has a long way to go before it can see a bright side. It is in my recommendation to avoid at all costs. If I knew then what I know now I never would have signed a lease with this building.

1. THE MANAGEMENT IS NOT GOOD.
2. MAINTENANCE IS RUBBISH.
3. WHEN WE MOVED IN THE UNIT WAS NOT CLEANED.
4. FLOOR WOODS WAS SERIOUSLY DAMAGED.
5. FUSE BOX WAS NOT SAFE.
6.WINDOWS WERE NOT INSULATED WELL, SO IN WINTER WINDOWS ARE COVERED BY ICE ON INSIDE LAYER.
7. ANY TIME WE CALLED MANAGEMENT TO FIX DAMAGED THINGS, IT TOOK 2 WEEKS TO RESPOND, AND MOST OF THE THEY SAID THEY DIDN'T HAVE BUDGET.
8. AS THE BUILDING IS OLD, DOES NOT HAVE PROPER VENTILATION, SO THE CORRIDORS SMELL AWFUL.
9. ELEVATORS ARE SO SLOW.
10.COMMON AREAS LIKE CORRIDORS, STAIRS AND ELEVATORS ARE VERY DIRTY.
11. PEOPLE LEAVE THEIR TRASHES AND DOG POOPS AT THE CORRIDORS AND STAIRS.
12.THERE ARE 3 BUS STOPS NEAR THIS APARTMENT, YOU ALWAYS HEAR LOTS OF NOISE WHEN BUSES STOP AND MOVE.
13. MOST OF UNITS WERE COMPLAINING COUSE OF BUGGS, AND IN BASEMENT PARKING I HAVE SEEN MICE FREQUENTLY.
14. ONCE A CAR HIT MY CAR WHEN IT WAS PARKED DURING THE NIGHT, BROKE MY BUMPER AND GOT AWAY. WHEN I ASKED THE SECURITY TO REVIEW THE CAMERA, THEY REFUSED FOR STUPID REASONS.

IN GENERAL IT WAS THE DIRTIEST AND MOST AWFULL BUILDING I HAVE EVER BEEN IN. MANAGERS AND PERSONELL DON’T CARE ABOUT TENANTS. THEY JUST NAGGING ABOUT NOT HAVING BUDGGET TO RUN THE BUILDING.
SPEND A BIT OF MORE MONY AND CHOOSE A BETTER APPARTMENT.

this place is not safe anymore there are street people coming in and sleeping in the stairs after the buy their drugs and they defecate in the stairwells, human pee in the elevators etc....
I smell marijuana, crack and other weird drug related smell coming through in my windows and hallways. Apartment needs repairs and upgrades but nothing is being done due to long time tenancy and low rent I believe. Now the cockroaches and the fear that the bed bugs will get to my apartment is my present worries. hope this is helpful.
