When my boyfriend and I first moved ino 53 thorncliffe park drive , in 2012, we found two bedbugs in our closet. They came with in the week to spray and we haven't had a problem since. There is a big problem with the heating in this builing. They have claimed to have fixed them multiple times but, it still doesn't work properly. Our balcony door rarely opens nicely. I was stuck outside durring the winter because I could not open the door. They are constantly needing entry into appartments. In th
e past three months they have entered 6 times. To me that seems excessive. I have also filled out repair forms for our cupboard door and a plug in the kitchen and still haven't had anyone come to fix it. It seemed like the cupboard door had been broken before, and someone just glued it back together. The windows aren't sealed properly, we always have a draft. Funny thing is one of those six times in the last three months they needed entry into our appartment was to fix that, clearly that did not work. Some tenants are very rude aswell. Constantly pouring bleach and other liquids off of their balcony, I've witnessed a couple people get soaked while walking into the building. There are also people that were setting off fireworks into neighboring buildings and toward the road at 2am. That's dangerous in my opinion. If you can avoid moving into this building and area, do so. It will save you many headaches and frustration.

i have been looking for an apartment and every building on thorncliffe park seems to have in infestation of not only bed bugs but roaches as well, and, most tenants are saying that little to nothing is being done about this problem and some of the buildings are having heating and other repair issues (tho i don't know anyone in 53 to ask if this is true here too. I am not moving into any of these buildings

There is a bed bug problem in the building. I am surprised that there was only one report so I thought I would confirm it.

I recently moved into 53 Thorncliffe park. I didn't see a single bedbug report, so naturally I wasn't worried. We moved in september 30th, and that evening, I found 2 dead bedbugs on the floor of our bedroom. I had never seen one before, so I wasn't sure what they were. The next day, sure enough, I found about 8 more on the floor, not dead, but hardly moving. I googled common bugs, and it turns out they were bed bugs. I called the superintendent, and not only did she not sound surprised, but she
told me I would have to wait until the 3rd to hear back about a plan. I saved the bugs on pieces of tape, and I've been avoiding unpacking. I went online looking for ways to kill them, and found out people use a powder. The weird part was, when I moved in, I found traces of white powder along the living room base boards and all over the bathroom. I hadn't thought much of it, maybe just cleaning product. I'm beyond disgusted that they would let us move into a previously treated and infested apartment and not notify us. All last night bed bugs, young, very small, scoured our walls in just about every single room of our apartment. i'm scared and disgusted, looking for some answers. Does anyone else in the building have this problem?
