Regretfully Yours on 12/20/2014
This building is the perfect example of how not to run a building, pubic housing or not, you simply do not just ignore problems and issues, such as bed bugs, and expect them to solve themselves or go away. Very mismanaged and in need of a great deal of attention. Unfortunately due to the size of the building and resident apathy existing issues of bed bugs, overcrowding and general neglect make it a horrible place to live. Living here is barely better than the street. Do yourself a favor and hope
you find another option because you will live to regret your choice. As far as bed bugs go, had them and had to take care of them myself as I was told by staff "What did I expect?". I still have roaches and because of the trauma and management neglect every day I wake up expecting bed bugs to return. This building is not about a single event it is an ongoing daily nightmare, complete with bed bugs, not about to end because of staff incompetence, ignorance, mismanagement and neglect. The people who manage these places, or their families should also be forced to live in them.

I have been living in this building for 4 years and out of nowhere I found red bugs all over my unit - they ended up spraying only for the bed bugs to return with cockroaches. I ended up throwing out 3 perfectly nice beds and leaving all my clothes for the trash. The super of 85 Spencer did not do anything. He insisted on spraying and steaming again which is very bad for human health and brings the bed bugs back anyway- this is just a ban aid solution and a waste of money and time. The housing c
ommunity keeps upping the rent - for what I do not know. Even if I needed low income housing I wouldn't bother moving into this building it is nasty and infested.
Go somewhere else and avoid having to pay for belongings that will just be thrown into the trash.
This is a serious epidemic that the government should do something about. I contacted the mayor Fords office and they did nothing.. I contacted CP24 - they did nothing and I contacted public health and they did nothing. No one cares about you.
