I have lived in this building nearly a year. When we tried to move in on the 5th of the month (because they hadn't gotten around to preparing the unit for the 1st) no one was available to give me keys or even let me into the building. When I finally found the Super, Manuel, I discovered he was great. Over the year I have seen how obviously he cares about his jobs, and the tenants, but one man cannot keep a building this big, that has been neglected for so long, in shape. It was about a week afte
r I moved in that the coach roaches made their way into our apartment from the neighbours and hallways. These bugs are small-ish, about the size of a house fly. Management does do bi-annual infestation sprays but the bugs always come back. About a month in, my roommate saw 10 roaches in ten minutes and went on a rampage trying to find where they were coming from. When she pulled out the fridge, HUNDREDS of bugs fell out. Including one nearly the size of a toonie! She bleached the entire house. We called and left a voicemail for the building manager. 3 days later she finally called back saying the bi-annual pest-control would occur in 6 weeks and that was the entire solution. No replacement of the fridge. No explanation for how they completed a move-out assessment on the last tenants and didn't bother to pull out the fridge. No compensation. Now we keep a spray bottle of bleach in every room since we can't leave poison out due to pets.
I read the previous posts before moving in but I know people tend to exaggerate, so did not heed the warnings. There are no exaggerations here. This place is not just rough. This building is a shit hole. And as such, the tenants treat it that way. The bugs continue to thrive because people don't care where they leave their garbage, where they smoke, or where they defecate (Yes, a human being once shit in the stairwell!)
Saving 100 bucks a month is not worth dealing with the bugs, dirt, and neglect. Go without cable instead. You won't regret it. My lease is up, so I'm out!

Don't believe the last review things are still the same, no renovations the place is now more of a eye sore. They have a huge solar panel on the roof that keep collapsing, they don't let the kids use the playground in the back so there is always kids in front and the building still a dump and eye sore

DRASTICALLY improved building to my amaze. I was asked by my family living at this location to move here and I sarcastically laughed and said you must be joking right? but I visited my family at this location and was stunned on the renovations done where as couple of years it was a eye soar but after seeing all the changes I believe the current manager is doing hell of a good job to keep everyone happy. I have stayed over a week and was pleased to see my family live in safe and pest free environ
ment as to my short stay experience I have seen people caring n polite. Supers are very active anytime you call them for anything and manager is always available and friendly personality. Keep up with the good work. I am looking forward to move in close to my family in short future.

Bob is a nice guy! Doesn't mean the building is nice. If you're looking for roaches for roommates, look no further. My apartment was infested with them. If you're considering moving in, check out everything before doing so. Laundry rooms, garbage chutes, stairwells(which smell like pee) and hallways on different floors. Knock on a few doors and talk to the tenants too, I'm sure they can tell you how it really is.

An absolutely horrible building. It's completely infested with roaches. Couldn't go a day without one scurrying across the floor. There were even some stuck between the wood floor and the coating on top of it. The hallways, laundry room, and maintenance of the building were awful. Example: In the middle of winter, there was flooding in the electrical room. Instead of hiring a professional to fix it, they used someone else who made it much worse. The entire building was out of power for days, and
we were told by police that it wasn't safe to stay in the building. No compensation was given when it came to us paying our rent. DO NOT LIVE HERE. Spend a little more, and get a place that is livable.

Lived here for 10 years, just recently moved out because I got a job out of city. I've heard complaints about bed bugs and roaches in the past, but for the last 2 or 3 years it's been far better. the staff are great and accommodating to all needs...I am really surprised at some of these comments, but I guess there are always bad apples.

I understand the problems of the building. However, I have seen Bob Deb personally supervise and work hard and often under extreme stress to upkeep the building.
He is a sensitive and a caring man who sometimes has to take the brunt of managing a building that has aged and requires regular maintaining.
His staff who do the work are polite, congenial and work hard.
There is no doubt that older building are hard to look after. However, the staff and Bob do what ever they can and on a

I've been living here for a year and it's by far the worst building I've been in. The building super, Silver, is incompetent and isn't fit for his position. The hallways are disgusting, usually smelling of bad food, cleaning products, and garbage. (The tennants on the 3rd floor leave garbage piled up outside the garbage chute) The hot water is tempermental, constantly being off and on. The power goes out sometimes, and the management is extremely slow at fixing the issues. There are leaks and
bugs on top of it all. I'm paying 750 for a one bedroom and feel that I'm paying too much. They should pay their tennants to live there. This building should be shut down, and demolished. Absolutely disgusting.

this building is disgusting...full of roaches and pest. The hallway really smell like piss and amonia mixed together. The elevators are the worst to get stuck in. The place has bed bugs and roaches all over the place.
I have seen alot of ghetto buildings. Honestly this is by far the worst worst worst building ever seen.

First I was lured in by the price. 850 for a large two bedroom and solarium (which turned out to be a balconey that was windowed in). They were renovating the apartments as they came available. Another plus. BUT!!!! One look into one of the fire cabinets and you could see bedbug and cockroach bodies. You could smell where places were or had been sprayed for bugs. Then I had people living there, shaking their heads no at me as they passed the property manager. That was enough for me.

building is terrible just disgusting
Alive on 12/10/2009
Most ghetto building I've ever seen. Jane Finch got nothing on this building... hallways look incredible. Ceilings falling down, place smells of piss, ammonia and cheap pine sol. Bed bugs is just one of the worries you should have. Trust me, for $750 you could do better! I mean for an extra $50 you get a place 100x better then this place. This is bottom of the pitts. There should not be a need for a warning, once you see this place you know it's time to get moving.

Walking through the building 9th floor, see a lot of bed bugs crawling, one of my friends parents live in the building and they said they told the landlord and nothing has been done thus far.
