i lived in this building for 5 years back in 2000 to 2005 and bed bugs cock roaches and mice were also a huge problem back then as well. the owner, Goodie, owns half of downtown hotel (Balmoral ext.) and has never cared about fixing anything or ridding the building of these problems.....
Goodie has million of dollars yet puts all the funds in his sister's name to avoid having to be responsible for anything. this building should have been condemned back when i lived there and torn down.

Bedbugs, mould, no heat, roaches and mice. These problems will never be fixed no matter how much you complain to the superintendant. Stay away!!

I live in this building and the what was said above is an understatement. The superintendent is a complete idiot and harasses tennants on an almost constant basis. The place has THE MOST cockroaches of any apartment building i have lived in anywhere from here to halifax and we as well have NEVER had heat in our apartment. The situation with the buzzers is that the incompitent emplyoees of the sahota's didnt bother unhookiing the phone jacks when they "drywalled" and just cut the wires and stuffe
d them back into the walls. These "drywallers" also used red tuck tape (the really sticky red plastic stuff) as drywall tape...you can see it right through the paint. The recently built balconies are already sagging quite badly on some peoples balconies. I also had to install my own lock on my deck door because it wouldnt lock and he refused to fix it. The west stairwell frequently smells of piss also.
Problems with this place include cockroaches, mice, chainsmoking neighbours, filthy hallways a management company that takes it sweet time to fix anything and now a lack of heat while we enter the cold fall.
when you inform the building care taker about the mice he gives you sticky paper to fix the problem. you have to ask repeatedly to get anything fixed if it gets fixed at all.
the buzzers also don't work in half of the apartments and they don't care to fix it anytime soon.
the hallways and
entry ways are disgusting. when i moved in 4 months ago i was told they would be fixed and they haven't.
its not uncommon to see neighbours angry at the building caretaker.
we haven't had heat for 2 weeks as we head into the fall even though it is included in the tenancy agreement. needless to say i will be moving out of this place as soon as possible.
something else about this neighbourhood, you can smell the chicken factory and the smell comes into the apartment when its hot outside.
