We lived here for 2 very long years and eventually broke our lease just to get out of there, it was that bad. The management is terrible. We asked for our bathroom fan to be fixed and it took a year to be done, and was only done because we asked the handyman himself. They raise the rent every year without giving you any better service or living conditions.

Our fridge stopped working the first month we moved in, it was in the middle of July and it took almost two weeks for them to get us a new fridge, so we lost about $400 in groceries. They refused to reimburse us or take it off our rent. The windows have black mold all around them. The building smells terrible. The woman next door to us was not right in the head, she started two fires which thankfully were put out quickly but could have destroyed everything we owned. She was finally evicted after the second fire. There was a third fire the floor below us because someone left a candle going when they went out. Bottom line is they rent to anyone willing to live here, so you take your chances

The final last straw was the fire alarm malfunctioning and going off every day. Every. Single. Day. After the first time no one even left their apartment anymore. Real safe. I had to pack two huge cats in a carrier and down 3 flights of stairs every time it went off. I called the office after day 2 and they were very nonchalant about it. It went off for a week or two more before it was finally addressed. I was late to work many mornings, waiting to see if the building was actually on fire or not, but couldn't take the chance with animals in my home. The cats still run and hide when they hear an alarm bell on TV.

We finally found a nice basement suite for cheaper rent and it was so much better than living here. Unfortunately we could only give 3.5 weeks notice instead of 4 so they said if they didn't find someone to take the place from us, we would have to pay $800. The thing is, they took two weeks to list an ad. Why would they hurry to find someone if they knew we had to pay anyway? They showed two people our apartment in the last week and of course no one wanted it. The building is a slum. We paid the $800 just to get out of there and it was such a relief to not have to live there anymore.

Looks are deceiving, great area, crappy building, lots of mold. This place needs a huge suite inspection but management sure knows how to make the lobby and outside look pretty but they do nothing for the tenants.

Haven't been here long but it's clean, quiet and close to everything. The building is older and shows it's age but other than that, no complaints.
