I lived in this building for 4 years, it is a well managed building. Public areas are always clean. The health spa change rooms are cleaned everyday including Sunday. Bed bugs problem has nothing to do with the cleaningness of the permise, nor the occupants. Everytime we go into the public, be it restaurants, theatre, subway cars, we are at risk of picking them up. Be proactive and deal with it as swiftly as possible.
One suggestion from a friend: Instead of throwing out your bed, first try
to use the steam function on your iron to spray your mattress, it may kill the bugs. (and head board, carpet around the bed).
I spent an afternoon there with my friend, he rents there, went swimming and gym. There was a dead bedbug in the corner of the pool room. Flat and rusty brown, yes, a bed bug.
Strange, because the same bugs can be found in the gym locker room at the downtown Y.

OMG!! I live in this building and recently after a few nights sleep I had these mysterious itchy red bumps on my legs. My BF also had a few and we thought it was weird that we both woke with them. We suspected something wonky in the bedding and changed the sheets. Now I want to throw out my bedding UGH! I can also the attest that the bulding manager is anything but pleasant and I would not even waste time raising the issue with him. Thank God Im only a renter of the pit! Fingers crossed so
