Management isn't great. Maintenance requests are usually dealt with which is good but sometimes it is pretty hard to get a hold of anyone there and can then take some time for them to send someone. They seem to care about one thing... Money! They want to reel people in to rent from them but don't care about tenants quality of life or helping them if theres an issue. If you file a complaint about something, don't expect anything to really come from it because they don't care at all. They just brush you off and say they're "working on it". Yeah right..

Not safe. Fights happen, someone was slashed by glass once and there was blood everywhere and cops are there very often kicking in doors or looking for people. 80% of people in the building are placed there by Turning Leaf (which they fail to mention before you move in) so there's lotsa people with issues and are straight up crazy and unstable.

Most tenants openly let random people in the front door even though it is locked. No intercom or buzzer which is vey annoying. No cameras so good luck if your place gets broken into like mine did twice.

Management is adamant when you're looking into renting there that there is no history of pests and no current problem. It's a lie. There are lots of mice and there are bedbugs and it has been an issue for years. There was a flea problem recently too... Oh and they refuse to spray every suite, just the ones who report it, meaning that the bedbugs just keep coming back!

Storage isn't usable as it doesn't lock reliably and has been broken into like someone said. Garbage piled up behind the building as well as in the back stairs. Someone literally took a shit inside the main stairwell once and took 2 days to remove it and clean..

They don't really clean the hallways often at all. Lots of gang tags as well as garbage and dirt.

A window in the front of the building has been smashed forever. Very tiny laundry machines considering it's over $2 per wash load.

You get what you pay for so the rent isn't bad. Pretty cheap and includes water/parking.

Hydro is INSANE though. Over $250/month in winter for a 1 bedroom... Been in debt from the crazy bills for months. Electric heat kills it although I wouldn't put it past the management to be doing something to jack it up hahah

Not the worst place to live and its the hood so it isn't like your gonna find anything much better around there. Good place for if your broke or desperate :)

I found the management to be fine. They responded right away if something needed fixing. I would recommend taking photos of everything, as they almost always want a photo. The window in the bedroom was broken when we moved in, and luckily we had taken photos, or I think we would have been charged for it.

The issues I had were: smoking in the building was never dealt with, and people left their garbage in the back entrance way instead of taking it outside. Overall, we rarely had issues with noise, and it was a quiet building.

The hydro bill for our apartment was incredibly expensive (250 a month in the winter) due to radiator heat, and poor insulation. We weren't ever cold though. I found that when we moved into a house we paid less than half of that on average.

There were bedbugs in the building, they were dealt with quickly, and our apartment came up clean twice before the management seemed satisfied.

The storage area was broken into once when we were there and stuff was stolen out of our storage room. The management put a new lock but people left the door open regularly, so I never felt comfortable leaving anything in there again.

I found the neighbourhood very walkable once I got over my own inhibitions. People are very friendly, and there are lots of neat stores and events going on.

Very nice for the area. Recently renovated. Allows my cat. Has some parking. Pretty quiet building. Reasonable rent. The laundry machines are kind of old. Secure building.
