Found 25 reports:

I had bedbugs from Feb to April or May 2015.

There was a building management change halfway through this outbreak. The original building management did not handle the situation very well. The exterminators they hired did not fix the problem, and some spraying appointment dates were missed. Also the the new building management were not properly advised of the problem, thus causing my situation to drag on longer than needed.

The new building management handled the situation extremely well.

Within only a few days of taking over they called in some very professional exterminators and I was bed bug free as quickly as was possible.

I have full confidence the current management is keeping the building clean and pest free.

This building is clean! I spoke to the landlord last week there are no issues. Myself and many other tenants have never had an issue. These bed bug issues were isolated issues where the tenant brought them home from travelling. They never spread to other units because the building was very proactive and clean. If you have an issue the landlord will solve it immediately. Every building has tenants who bring bugs into the building, what matters is whether the landlord will do something to fi

x it, and they do. There haven't been any issues since late summer.

DO NOT MOVE IN HERE!!!!! I had bed bugs, it was terrible, and they arent handling it well at all. See furniture out all the time with bed bugs written on it, and they have a sketchy company spraying and see them at least once a week. STAY AWAY!!!!

Can anyone update if this is just a once off incident that had been cleared up?


I had bedbugs from feb - april 2015. no problems since then. i did see a couch being thrown out in september that had 'bedbug' written on it - so maybe people in the building are still having this problem .

UPDATE: I'm on the 9th floor and while I don't know where the situation occurred with the bed bugs, I can say that I've never had any in the time that I've been living in the building, which has been a couple of years now.

Hey - just wondering if anyone has experienced anything in this building lately? Looking to lease out in November. I just see the one post from the apartment above them but other people are saying they have lived there for some time and experienced nothing. I visited it today and was surprised just how clean the building was.

Can anyone provide an update re this pest/bed bug issue?! Was looking to move in for hopefully October 1st but now reading these reports, I'm guessing maybe I shouldn't... :

I am the resident of the previous comment, dated 07/10/2015, and I am still dealing with this bedbug problem. Again, the neighbour above me gave me bedbugs soon after we moved in, but management did not even tell us they were spraying for bedbugs until the second part of the treatment. They could have put us in a different flat, and we never would have had this problem. I haven't been able to live in my apartment for some of this time. When I am here, I am either in the kitchen or sleeping on a

bed with no pillows and the lights on--it has been like this for almost 3 months. I've just been informed that we are having a third treatment, although we had a clear inspection. Better to be safe than sorry, but I moved into this apartment from Jane and Finch, and my crappy Jane and Finch place was much better than this.

Probably people bring it with them when they move in or go visit the people with bedbugs and transfer them, because not everyone has them.as the person below me said, the new superintendent is really trying to solve the problem (she seems like she cares about keeping the building safe) but it does not all depends on her as the management needs to make sure they send someone in that can fix this faster but its probably very expensive for them as well.but if it doesn't get fixed they will loose th

eir good tenants..i havent seen cockroaches but i have seen some small garden bugs or something like that on the balcony that sometimes go in the house. make sure to buy mattress covers and possibly a steamer as i heard it helps a lot.

I moved into this building recently and was not notified that the unit above me has bedbugs. Currently I am in the middle of the second preventative treatment of them but I have found dying bedbugs and have woken up with bites. The superintendent is now new and is handling as best she can, but it really sucks to move into a new place and is till haven't been able to unpack my stuff. I had originally unpacked all my clothes but then got a notice that we were not treating for cockroaches like I wa

s originally told, but for bedbugs.
I have seen many cockroach nymphs in my bathroom and one bedroom, often nightly in the bathtub. I have seen about 3 full size cockroaches in about 30 days.

Does this building have bedbugs? or any other kind of pest issue? i ask because i am planning to sign a lease soon and would like to avoid this kind of issue.

Interesting how none of the posters claiming this building has bugs, ever replied to my and other questions (I posted earlier this year)

I have been here since October 2011 and so far so good. This building has not had a vacancy since I moved in, only waiting lists.

I live in this building as well and have for 3 years. I just noticed this alert/posting and find it extremely worrisome. While the supers are great, and have done a dog search twice last year, I see the initial report/posting was made in Aug 2011 but then another was made in Jan 2012. What floor do you live on and do you still have bedbugs??

I have found that the super in this building is great about this stuff. They have had a canine inspection team come into every apartment and check for issues.

When I have asked them questions, they are extremely open about any issues in the past and have dealt with these issues in a timely fashion.

I have lived in the building for the better part of a year, and have never encountered a problem or heard of a current one.

There is a reason why there is a waiting list for this building.


We want to know if anyone recently got the bedbug problem?? (although the building looks very clean).

which floor are you on???

which floor are you on???

BED BUGS IN MY APARTMENT! THEY ARE EVERYWHERE! I have to get professionals in here to try and get rid of them. Double check all your furniture and everything to make sure you don't have them too!

I agree with below - I moved in in October 2011 and so far so good *knock on wood*

I lived there from July 2010 - June 2011. There were NO bedbugs and the superintendents were really nice and friendly.

No bed bugs here. Been here for 3 months.

Any more reports for this location?

I started to get bit 2 weeks ago (woke up looking like I had the chicken pox). I stripped my bed and found the signs in my sheets, headboard, and mattress that there were bugs.

I started sleeping on an air mattress in my living room, but have now learned through reserach online that I probably wasn't helping things by moving sleeping location. I am still waking up with bites.

My building did have a canine unit come in to investigate the entire building, but it has been 2 weeks since I firs

t reported it, and I don't have a status update yet on when the treatment will occur.
