Dinner Dog on 01/07/2016
I am so glad to have finally moved out of this building.
I moved in during the Spring of 2013. The rent was cheap, and the building was clean. By the beginning of 2015 I had seen the building slowly morph into a roach-infested JOKE. Despite my best efforts, roaches made their way into every single room of my unit. Management was uncooperative and lazy when it came to arranging any kind of exterminator visit. The fact that it took them almost 4 months to reprogram my buzzer code should have
tipped me off. Not to mention, any kind of pluming/maintenance-related emergency took AGES to fix. These guys are not interested in their tenants' well-being.
In April of 2015 I noticed that there was a urine stain (dog) left on the carpet in the hallway of my floor. I finally moved out by the Summer of 2015. The stain was still there on August 1st.
Cosburn is a carpet. Somebody should have shampooed the living daylights out of this 6-storey stain.

A follow up to my post from November 5, 2015.
My daughter has found roached crawling in her bed for the second time. I must kill at least 3-4 a night in the common area hall. Called the super and he told me that Firm Capital will not have apartments sprayed outside of the second Thursday in each month. So now they want me to wait a whole month before they will spray. I have put in a complaint with the health department and was told that there is a number of complaints from the tenants.
S PRPERTY MANAGEMNT COMPANY ONLY CARES ABOUT THE MONEY AND NOT THE TENANT. IF YOU ARE LATE PAYING YOUR RENT THEY ARE AT YOUR DOOR ON THE 5TH OF THE MONTH HANDING OUT N4. DON'T MOVE INTO THIS BUILDING YOU WILL REGRET IT.
FINALLY GETTING THE HELL OUT OF THIS HELL HOLE.

RUN DON'T ENTER BUILDING IS FULL OF ROACHES AND SUPER IS A LAZY ASS AND MANAGEMENT COMPANY FIRM CAPITAL DOES NOTHING. THEY HAVE REFUSED TO SPRAY THE WHOLE BUILDING AT ONCE BECAUSE IT'S TO EXPENSIVE.
We got a new super recently and he is just as lazy a the previous super. All he wants to do is paper work and nothing else. There is garbage and dead roaches everywhere in the building. It took them 3 months or more to empty the garbage's in the underground garage and they overflowed and there is
garbage everywhere in the garage. Which has never been cleaned since I have been living in this building. The first floor smells like something died and the carpets are all stained with I don't know what. The roof leaks and there is damage to the common area halls.

It has come to my understanding that the building is full of cockroaches. They have been found in our building in multiple units and halls. The building is poorly managed which results in this dirty enviroment. This isn't the first time this building has dealt with an infestation. Management is lazy and it feels as if they do not care about the tenants. Most tenants have come to an understanding that this building shouldn't be lived in and they are preparing to move out. I strongly recommend to
all those considering 165 cosburn to turn around and never look at this place again.

PLEASE RECONSIDER MOVING INTO THIS BUILDING
I moved into this building in Apr 2014. I have been wanting to get out since the day I moved in. The building is a mess the super is so lazy he never cleans. I have sent pictures and e-mails to the property manager of the building and nothing was done about any of my complaints except one. Which was the one about the garbage cans in the underground that where overflowing with garbage and his solution to this was to remove the garbage cans all toge
ther. I also asked the property manger not to inform the super that it was me but he did any how and I was confronted by the super at 10pm in lobby. It is infested with cockroaches and they refuse to spray the whole building at once. The apartment is so cold that every tenant that lives in the building have to run electric heaters. Thank God my hydro is included in my rent but any new tenant that moves in is now responsible for there own hydro. The window are so old that air comes through them and they freeze over so that you can not see out of them. In the summer my daughter has a waterfall from her window every time it rains. I would recommend that you don't move into this building.

It has come to my understanding that bed bugs have been found in our building in multiple units. The building is poorly managed which results in this dirty enviroment. This isn't the first time this building has dealt with an infestation but we were only notified about this recent bed bugs because it was the unit next to ours. Management is lazy and it feels as if they do not care about the tents. Most tents have come to an understanding that this building shouldn't lived in and are preparing to
move out. I strongly recommend to all those considering 165 cosburn to turn around and never look at this place again.
Twice Burned on 07/18/2010
When I moved into 165 Cosburn ave. with my kids, I never knew what a bedbug was. I soon found out. The whole appartment was infested, my children and I were being eaten alive. I lost everything I owned. they called an exterminator, they came they sprayed and I thought my problems were over. I purchased all new furniture, depleting all of my savings only to be infested again. There are several apartments in this building that have bedbugs. They have been sprayed but like myself have found that th
e problem presist. If you dare to move to 165 Cosburn BEWARE you too will lose everything.
Mad as Hell on 09/01/2009
I just moved into 165 Cosburn Avenue #408 on Aug. 1, 2009, and 3 weeks later realized my bed had bed bugs. I never had that before!! I told the landlord on Thursday, August 27, and they didn't spray until Mon., Aug. 31st!!!! They only spray twice 2 weeks apart, but not ANY of the surrounding units!! Just the one above me who had bed bugs 2 months prior (as I later found out). Others in this building have it, too, as I learned after.
I've thrown out most of my things, and am moving out s
oon. i'VE LOST EVERYTHING.
