273 Pharmacy Ave
Toronto, ON M1L

Found 16 reports:

Night I moved in, apartment was literally infested with cockroaches. I'm talking hundreds of different sizes. And hatched and unhatched eggs in numerous areas. After 2 weeks we finally got an exterminator who did a half a**ed job. They ended up coming back 2 more times. Eventually the problem got less bad, but the cockroaches never went away completely. And this is in a span of 15 months.

Stairwells are always covered in garbage. One time I even found a condom that looked used.
Parts of th

e stairwells and lobby are crawling with bugs (cockroaches, ladybugs, spiders).

Over the course of my 15 months here, I have heard numerous people complaining of bed bugs. Even though I never had them, thank god.

Elevators break down constantly, fire "drills" or tests happen almost weekly, power and or hot water are shut down occasionally (more than normal).

Staff is rude and incompetent. If you have an issue, don't expect it to ever be fixed. at least not properly or in a timely manner.

So glad I'm finally out of that sh*thole.

I think many of u r fools and disrespectful. U R all dramatic and inconsistent with what your saying. You rented this place for a reason, BECAUSE THE RENT IS LOW. When you keep your apartment fill with shit you get shit back. You aren't clean, you'll get infestation. You keep your doors open in the lobby, the hallways will reek of food. I would now... i have it all on the 10th floor. h. I find what your' all saying is disrespectful, especially that I live here as a tenant and many other tenants

will disagree with you on your negativity towards the building.
Go to Teesdale, see how good they are... I live there 2 btw. HORRIBLE. I came here, it was MUCH MUCH more different.
Listen, word of advice, this is a building.. a old old old building, but my apartment does not have cockroaches BED BUGS or fuking ants.. for gods sake. I've been living in this apartment for 12 years, 4 kids and I'm surving...
I tink many of you are being too picky in what you want in ana partmtnet that you pay low rent for.
Take i down a notch ppl.
You aren't paying millions here.

Have goodday. No disrespect to your coomments, however many of you r lying.

this area is full of niggers and muslims! don't move here unless you want to be robbed daily, and then blown up in a suicide bombing.


I'd just like to tell all of you that wrote a comment and stated some facts that are incredibly common- sense facts.
1. If your a dirty person, you WILL see cockroaches, whether it's in a home, or in a mansion.
2. Bed bugs don't come from the building but from the people outside the building; you can attract it at the movies for God's sake. Also, if you buy furniture outside a local ikea, the brick, ext.
3. I have been a tenant at 283 for 5 years. I have had no issue, no complaint, no probl

ems with the building.
I have family whose moved here in this complex, friends who've applied to the building, and they've never complained. If you see a roach, kill it. Get the apartment sealed. Different people, different cultures, different outlooks. If you feel that you are not happy, MOVE. If you feel that you are not getting what you want, MOVE. However many of you cannot speak only the negatives on the building. I hope you can appreciate the area you live in. The more you hate it the worse it'll get.
I don't want to sound rude, nor disrespectful. As per the comments ahead, white people are NOT dirty, South Asian cultures are not dirty either. It depends on the person. Not the background. Everyone has their own way of being clean.
Anyways, I love the building. I won't move out, the price is fair, the people are kind and I've enjoyed it.
P.s- As said before, the more you hate it the hell it'll get for you. Enjoy where you live.

Have a good night everyone.

Listen up you dirty paki. I am a white person in this building and you saying that we smell...you should be talking, smelling up the building with fish and curry. I am a very clean person and my neighbours who were from Gyana had cockroaches walking all over their furniture. I have dogs and in no way do dogs have anything to do with bugs..how did you come to that conlusion? youre an idiot and you need an education! Go back to your fucking smelly country.


i used to live at this bulding its so nasty bed bug rosch infested get rid of of the bangladesh people and it would be ok


To NOT A RACIST, it certainly sounds like you are a racist or you would not have wrote your post like that. As in a lot of buildings around the city there are individuals that are in fact dirty and add to the problem. The building owners have to own up to the fact that they have to treat every unit in each and every building. If you are that unhappy with your living conditions then I would suggest that you buy a house and remove yourself from the situation. Mortgages are at an all time low. Raci

sts like yourself are the ones that keep the fighting going between the different ethnic people of this earth. Why don't you just try and keep your mouth shut, it may make you feel better!!!

July 27, 2011

A few days ago my fridge broke down and they gave me an older one to replace the broken one with. Within 48 hrs my kitchen was infested. I had cockroaches living in the fridge it was so disguisting I had to throw outl all my food. It is also embrassing when you see them tuning around in the hallway and elavator. please don't sign a lease here you will regret it. Thank god I'm moving soon.


i was visiting someone in this building and saw bugs crawling everywhere. There were cockroaches in broad daylight running up and down the walls. My friend that lives in this bldg is covered in bed bugs. Do not enter this building. You will get bugs for sure This place should be condemned Disgusting!!!


273 PHARMACY AVE.... is DIRTY! The cleaning lady only cleans the main floor. This building is full of INDIANs that dont clean up after them selves. I recntly found bedbugs in my bed. I had to throw out my whole bed, bedframe and all. I am not a dirty person and how I manged to get bedbugs could have been from anywhere e.g. ttc, elevator, people. I got 3 bug bites at 6am. I went down stairs to tell management and they didn't even care. They wanted to wait a WHOLE WEEK to "spray" my appartment. Th

ey even said they would srpay my bed....... EWWWW who the hell would want to sleep in a bed with bed bugs let a lone a bed sprayed down with bed bug spray. WTF! HOMESTEAD does not care. This building sucks ass! You could wait half hour for an elevator, no hot water, no heat. The building is FULL of cockroaches, even in the elevator. I HATE THIS PLACE AND IM MOVING ASAP!

The whole building infested with cockroaches...they are everywhere...in my apt. in the hallway...if you visit you friend in the same building they are there also...this is ridiculous. The building (263 and 283 building) also has many car theft incidence.
Come and visit your self. But I highly recommend you NOT to sign any lease with this apt. if possible.


i live at 273 and its bed beg infeasted had to throw out every thing i own and my daughters bed


Since I moved into this building in 2007 I have been encountering bedbugs here constantly. I would report it to the maintenance office, and they would come and fumigate my apartment, in a week or so bedbugs will reappear. They never leave, they just move to next door apartment. Adjacent other two buildings (283 Pharmacy and 263 Pharmacy ) are bed bug infested buildings also. I have spoken to several other tenants in these buildings, and they all testify the existence of bedbugs. Only the managem

ent would act surprised whenever I go to complain about bedbugs.
