June 2014 we found massive bed bug infestation in our bedroom. Suites all around us had been affected too. Speaking to tenants all throughout the building many of them reported past and/or present issues. Building seems to be riddled with them. Currently in a dispute resolution with Residential Tenancy Branch and the landlords about the issue. Landlords were extremely inefficient at dealing with the problem. When I asked Neil, the main landlord, about the cloverleaf pattern of treating multiple
units at the same time, he even said the words "I'm not an expert at dealing with bedbugs." Considering the past reportings on this website, and other past reportings from many other tenants that we spoke to, the landlords should be efficient at dealing with the problem. However, they proceeded to tell us that our suite seemed to be the only one affected, despite repeatedly telling them that we have confirmation from other tenants that they are also infested, and despite the fact that the pest control truck is constantly seen parked outside of the building. Landlords did not follow proper protocol for addressing bed bug infestations. In January 2015 (yes the issue STILL persists today) upon reaching out to other tenants with a written letter to build support in order to address the situation as a whole, the landlords served my girlfriend and I with an eviction notice, which is what the current dispute resolution is about. I would stick away from this building if I were you.

I've lived here 3 years. We found one bedbug, but I think it came on library books. Other than that it has been fine.

This place has been fully fumigated and the issue has been fully dealt with. There has been no further issue reported at this location.

Well I just discovered this site so I thought I'd post this. This information is about a year old so it may have changed since then, just fyi.
I lived at this building from Jan 2005 - July 2007. For the first year it was just fine. We actually moved across the hall into a new renovated apartment so we lived in two different suites in the building. The 2nd apartment was just fine... but after a time I started getting bites all over (which was strange because my partner who slept next to me did
n't). It was only about 1 or 2 bites a night for the first while, so I guess the infestation was in its beginning stages. We only found a few bugs at first as well. The state of the building at that point, began to rapidly decline, and for the last 6 months I lived there or so, it got worse and worse and worse. We threw out our futon bed and frame, and kept our clothes in bags. I'm sure we could have been more diligent with DA and all that, but we were new to the whole bed bugs experience.
The building also started, around the same time, a mouse infestation. It was hard for us too because we had birds, who ate seeds, which the birds, despite our best efforts, got seeds everywhere, which the mice loved. We had the place fumigated a few times and had mouse traps placed, but the state got worse and worse. There were rumours of how the whole thing got started, stories about some people letting homeless people stay in the building... not sure how much I believe, but I did learn that the whole building was experiencing the same problems.
I moved out. I'm sure, like I said, there was probably more we could have done, but at the time we felt disgusted by the whole situation and just wanted to GET OUT!
