Reviewer says...
If you can be a good neighbour, and follow building rules, this is a good place to land. Most tenants are long termers, minus two or three suites that seem to cycle through people for the last few years.

Biggest draw is that pets are allowed, for the most part. If you have a dog that barks when you aren't home, this building won't work for you though -- the landlord's will give you a written notice that you need to either stop the barking, start putting your dog in the conveniently across-the-street located daycare (to prevent barking), or move out.

The good? Management is fairly responsive. Repairs are done in a timely fashion, and they are aware that repairs will be needed during your stay -- it's an OLD building. Pipes and hot water heating tank replaced this year, new windows with screens installed last year. Quiet building, only one toddler lives here now, not a great place for more kids or parties, as people do complain even about that amount of noise. The landlord vacuums and cleans at least three times a week, and no smoking, or pot smoking/vaping/diffusing is tolerated. There is a park directly across the street, and off street covered parking is available, along with storage units.

The bad? The laundry room. One washer and one dryer for the whole building, and the dryer needs two goes to properly work. Think six bucks a load, and everyone trying to get their stuff done on weekends. If you wash weekdays, you'll be fine. There is a laundromat down the street though too. It gets hot in the summer, so invest in some fans. Winter heat has never been a problem.

The only thing this place has going for it is that it is pet friendly. Otherwise it is a disaster. Apartment is horrible after moving in. Noisy night and day. Kids running and screaming. One washer and one dryer...only time I could wash was after 3 am in the morning.

If I could give it a lower rating then one...I would have.
