Reviewer says...
I have been living here from just over two years now and have been extremely satisfied. The building is quiet, the neighbours have all been pleasant. Like any old building there have been quirks - but the property manager is attentive and prompt to respond to any questions, comments or concerns.

The neighbourhood is quiet, as a dog owner I appreciate the off leash dog park behind the building and the many walking paths near by. There is a convenience store almost right across the street that has most supplies you would need in a pinch. The building is well suited to transit users being the on transit way and not far from the soon to be opened light rail station.

Being an old building it has character but has all the modern amenities you need, including on site laundry and in unit dishwashers! I definitely would recommend checking it out.

Management has been changed over from Sleepwell to Gemstone and is now receptive and understanding. The building is quiet and well maintained. Location is awesome and the apartments are well sized.

The guy in charge promises everything and follows through with nothing. Treats you poorly when you ask for anything like you are wasting his time. When I am paying the amount that these apartments cost i expect to get what I pay which is quite a lot.
