Thinking of moving here in a couple months, looking for some up to date info

The building is nice, never had issues with any bed bugs. New elevators were supposed to be in months ago, project is taking for ever

Clean building, definitely no bug issues. Management is really brutal though. Especially the company that manages the property (DMI)

Management here is a nightmare, its impossible to get them to do anything.

DO NOT MOVE HERE! This building has a major issue with bed bugs, primarily a result of the careless manager Jennifer bringing old furniture in. I have bites all over my body. Ive tried to end the tenancy but they wont let me. There is also a minor cockroach issue. I've only seen one since I moved in 4 months ago. Still very disturbing though.

Not aware of bed bugs. Tiny ants instead.

Hello I am looking forward to moving here in December 2012. Has anyone encountered any bed bugs lately?

I've lived in this building for a year and a half before I moved out and loved it. When I moved into the building I was concerned about bedbugs but thankfully have NEVER seen any in this building let alone had them.

The management can be assholes though so I would imagine some people are publishing false reports just for spite. But to be fair there were none in my experience.

I lived in this building for four years. Loved the building. The maintenance crew is always very responsive, and they cleaned the common area very well everyday. No bug issue whatsoever!

I have not encountered bed bugs in the few years I have lived here. But in the last year there has been a major ant problem. These are the tiniest ants and they seem to come out of nowhere. The landlord had the exterminators come which definitely helped. I freaked when I saw an ant on the INSIDE of my computer's flat screen.

As of now the problem is not one of bedbugs but rather about the random shutting off of water supply. They do give a day's advance notice but every month the water get

s shut off at least twice.

Of late the problem has become one with the laundry room. They have a nice clean and huge laundry room. But they shut it down suddenly. And post the notices ONLY on the first floor rather than every floor. This means that you go all the way down to the sub-basement where the laundry room is located, haul your laundry one flight of stairs and then find out it is closed.

If you are single parent like me all these things add up to too much aggravation.

Having said that let me say the building is located in a BEAUTIFUL neighbourhood, it's north and south sides (esp. if you are above the 10th floor) are stunning. The tenants are all decent people.

Lived here for 3 years and never encountered bed bugs. No ants or cockroaches either. Fruit flies / Gnats surround the building once or twice a year, but that's due to being close to high park and the lake. Closing the windows and keeping the apartment clean in case any flies do get in solves that problem.

Does anyone know who owns the building??

HENRY, very interested in your proof as I am considering moving in. Thanks.

They do have bedbugs. I can prove it.

I have been in this building for 15 years and have never experienced bedbugs or any other type of bugs for that matter. Anyone who has to send a note anonymously concerns me. If you really have an issue you should not be a coward but put your name to your words.

TENANTS, does anyone have an update about 299 Glenlake?

'Recycling' furniture, in an area where bedbugs have been spotted in all surrounding high rises, should not be applauded. In fact any long term tenant should be concerned. Such practices are unprofessional and risky (even when there's no known infestation problem) to say the least.

This report is written as of Feb 27th, 2011. I am a tenant in this building 21 years now. And I have NEVER experienced any bedbugs and I have moved a couple of times within the same building. So I am not sure what the other person making the report has personally experienced. Because the other report simply talks about the building staff holding garage sales of items they picked up in the garbage. I cannot speak to that because I don't know the source of the items the hold a garage sale of.

I am assuming that perhaps these are leftovers that vacating tenants leave behind. In any event to me that is a good thing as it means items are being recycled.

My reason for making this report is because if someone has a beef about something they have against the building staff then they should talk about that and not make it a bedbug report. Such a report doesn't help anyone and if anything misguides people.

The tenant association reference to bedbugs in their flyer for a meeting agenda referred to upkeep and maintenance to PREVENT bedbugs, and their report about bedbugs certainly did NOT say anything about bedbugs at 299 Glenlake.

Once again I am a tenant of the building and not some shill of the management of the building trying to make a case for anything.

I recommend staying away from this place since the superintendent with his assistant regularly bring back furniture and other items from garbage area and conduct summer 'garage' sales. Also, notification of tenant association meeting downstairs mentioned bed bugs. I doubt that the management being criminally stingy and downright obnoxious, is going to be helpful in solving possible infestation problems.
