I and my spouse have been living here now for almost two months. We both work, and I also go to University full-time. We live in a one bedroom renovated suite which we pay 880$ for on the far upstairs floors.
Reading through these reviews I've seen that they are all about the roaches and bedbugs which I've yet to have experienced but, I have seen a single bug in my apartment the other day which we killed of course but I never thought anything of it. As well as the "Gangstas" living here and the management complaints, so far management hasn't been the absolute best from my personal experience we've run into some issues here and there with them and our paperwork and rent dealio. We've previously gotten a new suit manager this past week and so far we do not like her all that much since she seems scammy, we much preferred the last female suit manager who lives in the building and is very friendly, funny, understanding and professional. There are some unsettling people who live in the building *cough* the 5th floor - but usually, everyone else is friendly. We haven't run into any graffiti, the elevators smell weird and are very slow, our hallways are decently cleaned though, we've had two issues with our suite but both issues are being resolved fairly quickly so they probably have upgraded the staff since the last reviews were made. I see a new upgrade every other week. The gym is very nice. The laundry room is now operated by pay-cards with a machine in the basement where you put money on it to do laundry. Laundries a bit expensive but is affordable. The water isn't the best on the higher suits, which is understandable. The internet is OK. It's downtown so of course outside is super noisy, inside isn't noisy since there are concrete walls between the suites though.
The area which the building is located at is very nice, there is an adorable dog park right across the street on the side of the building. There are great bus stops around, especially the two big ones down the street on the main, There is also a bus stop directly in front of the building, and the one on the street over that I take to work and school daily, so it is super convenient for myself. The scenery outside is beautiful. We have an amazing view of the legislature building. The Forks is very close by so that is a hot spot for us. When I go to catch my bus I always hear fiddling music accompanied by a light show that plays usually all day which I adore. There is a new fenced in area outside of the building with yard furniture. There is a new door downstairs in the front entrance so it feels a lot safer as well.

Anywhere you go you will run into issues of some kind. The issues we've experienced are liveable and nothing crazy.
Overall we've been liking the place!

This is the worst building to live in winnipeg. Roaches everywhere management don't care at all. They sent pest control but it was a joke they didn't do anything roaches actually got worse in a bedroom kitchen, washroom can't sleep at night everywhere roaches roaches roaches. Puke in Elevator every weekend.

Cockroaches have been the biggest issue here the past 10 years. Things have improved slightly but no amount of paint will remedy that situation - they are here to stay.
The new management is better than it was, though not ideal. Maintenance is slow, but renovations are quick and costly.
Elevators are slow, the new tenants are terrible, noisy, and aggressive. The neighbourhood itself is noisy and the people are very sketchy. It sometimes feels like most of the drug dealers in Winnipeg live here.
Elevators are slow and wear on you after a while.
This place is hot in the winter, and HOT in the summer.
Not too many positives, and I've been looking for a new roach free building for a while now.

First of all the rent is ATROCIOUS. I pay almost 800$ a month for this dump and what do you get? A nice view of the Legislature. Everything else about this apartment is just beyond awful. Infested with roaches. Garbage in the hallways and graffiti in the elevators. Oh- The elevators are frequently broken so theres that. Maintenance is slow and inconvenient, and laundry services are laughably bad. They use Coinamatic and the machine to fill it is down frequently. And more often than not up to half the washing machines are busted at any one time.

I see Im not the first one to say this stuff- So please steer clear of this dump so the people who own it will run out of money and they can demolish this disgusting place. I have not one good thing to say about this place.
