The most cock roach infested hell hole of a building. I stayed on the 16th floor of this blister for 3 weeks and had a nightmare fighting cockroaches. There were simply hundreds of them swarming in from the kitchen into the living area, in my bed, in my suitcase - everywhere.
The building is unnaturally humid because the managers have not installed air conditioning. The common areas look like they have had a lot spent on renovations recently but no air con??

It's enough to give you nightmares.

I lived in two apartments here during 2012-2013. I constantly heard mice. When I moved up to the 22nd floor my cat actually killed a mouse and brought it to me. Other than that, I had no problems with bed bugs or roaches. Well, other than management.

DO NOT MOVE HERE. Seriously. I've been living here for two years and am now moving out because of the cockroaches. I keep a very tidy place yet I constantly see cockroaches in the kitchen and bathroom. I noticed them in May and the management has sprayed 3 times and they keep coming back because all that spraying does is force the roaches to go to another unit either beside, above, or below. I WISH I COULD POST PHOTOS BECAUSE THEY'RE EVEN IN THE HALLWAYS ON THE WALLS AND OTHER UNITS DOORS EVEN D
URING THE DAY. Its fucking nasty.
Trust me when I say don't move here. They're even giving a months free rent for new tenants because so many people are moving out. Fucking brutal.

DONT move here! There are millions of roaches in every corner of the building. Everyone I know can't wait to get out of here, my life is hell :(
As if the previous property manager Gordana wasn't pathetic enough to talk to, the new manager called Sheri is absolutely mean and a down right b****.
Now that it is inspection time before we all move out from our apartments, they are charging everyone for the tiniest marks that were there from before, while there are no before or after pictures to pr
When you come to sign a lease, she will be the nicest person, and once you're in, sorry but not even GOD can help you! They talk to you like they own you as well as the roaches.
They are now offering first month free rent for the next years lease since word has spread about how nasty and infested the building is, they are also decreasing rents. But you'd rather live on the road side, it'll be cleaner!
The ultimate management: Cromwell, is the mother of all evils to deal with.
DONT EVER LIVE HERE!!!

The woman who works in the main office has her head up her butt and shouldn't have a job where she has to deal with other people. Rude on numerous occasions.

THe building is infested with roaches!!! I moved into the building in June for a short summer sublet until September (2015) and I can't wait to move out. We started finding about 10+ roaches every night after moving, we called pest control and it went down for a bit. We started finding roaches in the hallways and in the apartment again a week ago, called pest control again and no change. Those mofo's keep coming out every night. We had to surround the bed with glue traps and all of our food is i
n ziploc bags and a giant air tight container. We vacuum and clean the floors twice a day, same with the kitchen and bought covers for the drain and door with no improvement whatsoever. Yesterday the roaches started climbing down the roof and now we are terrified to sleep with roaches falling into the bed.
The good location is not worth the hassle.
We tried to talk to management about the state of the unit and the woman was extremely rude. When booking the pest control visits we asked her how long would we have to wait ( approximately) for them to schedule a visit and she yelled at us that she's busy and that she would eventually get around to it.
Fellow U of T students, unless you're a roach lover stay away from here.

Probably the worst decision that I made was to move into this building. Its just not me, almost all my friends have the same view for this building. Following are some of the issues that I faced; This is by no means an exhaustive list but it will give you a fair bit of indication of what its like to live in this building.
a. The management is extremely rude. The moment you sign the lease, they literately change into different personalities. They will treat you not like a customer but like a s
lave. I have never met more rude and cold blooded ladies in my life than the ladies that manage these properties.
b. Elevators will be out of service most of the time.
c. My friends were twice stuck in elevators and it takes about 40 minutes for response team to act. The management doesn't care if you are stuck in an elevator. You are on your own.
d. The drainage system in washrooms doesn't work. I had to regularly get it cleared with plumbers help.
e. Most importantly, the building is a heaven for cockroaches. I got pest control done twice in my apartment but it just doesn't work. Its a nightmare.

I had a very bad experience living in this building. I don't recommend this place for students. Although, location is great and everything is close by. I couldn't even live there for a year because the poor management! People in the head office are VERY rude specially Elona and Reyhna. This building is full of bugs!! specially cockroaches and I know so many people who complained about this problem including myself to fix this problem but they never did anything about. There is also mice in the b
uilding, but thank God haven't seen any in my apartment.

Small number of bedbugs, lots of cockroaches, mice, silverfish.

I've been here for just over two months and there are no bed bugs on floor 12. Pretty solid building maintenance.

No bed bugs that I know of, but there are definitely silverfish and mice, even on the higher floors.

I have lived here for two years from 2010 to 2012. I didn't have bedbugs and have not heard anything from office. But I have occasionally seen mice, silverfish and other pest. I heard from a friend of mine who lived on 9th floor that she saw a mouse in her kitchen and notified the office. But all they did was to set up a mouse trap. I liked this place, but this was one reason that I moved out: don't want to hear sound of mice every night.

Bedbugs all summer long. Common occurence, management got the apartment sprayed 3 times but the spray was ineffective and bedbugs still exist. There are also rats and other pests.

Management acted promptly; no further issues that I'm aware of.

I'm guessing the building is safe for now since there are no new reports?

Received a call from building management on October 2nd, 2009. Bedbugs confirmed in at least one apartment on the 21st floor. Management has sprayed infected unit, and will be spraying all adjacent units shortly.
