My partner and I lived in this building for just over 1 year in 2008. I don't know how I managed to stay that long because there was a massive cockroach problem. We were on the 10th floor. The first night we moved in we turned on the lights and about 50 cockroaches came crawling out from under the walls. We complained to the superintendent who said that they would come in and put the gel and that we could put powder down. He said that if we caulked all the holes they wouldn't come in and that th
ey don't have much of a problem. We caulked everything and got it to the point where we would see a cockroach every once and a while. But the entire building is infested! I remember seeing a cockroach crawling inside the washing machine! Yuck! I can't even think about it without cringing! Luckily we didn't have bed bugs but that probably would have been next had we stayed!

The cockroach problem in this building is insane. They crawl all over the walls and the floors, and are inside all our kitchen cupboards. People I know in other apartments have the same problem, and the super admits it is really bad but it is so bad there is nothing they can do. They have put gel in the cupboards and on the walls, and have fumigated but the cockroaches keep coming back no matter what. It's really disgusting. A real infestation.

The date is OCT 14/2012. Bad bed bug infestation here and many, many roaches. The building's management told us it was clean other than the odd roach when we moved here, but we soon found out that it was crawling with spiders, roaches and bedbugs. Management here has sprayed for bedbugs once, but failed to do a follow up. They are also not offering a discount on rent for the infestation.
DO NOT MOVE HERE.

Me and my partner moved in at 1251 King St. W, April 2012. We moved in to find a cock roach problem immediately. I don't want to mention that it is an infestation in the unit, technically a whole corner of the unit or behind an appliance needs to be covered by them to be considered that. Various units of the whole building got fumigated in the summer along with having gel placed behind cupboards after a sniffing dog went through the whole building. Now, in October of 2012 we are finding bed bugs
after noticing bite marks on myself. Found them around the mattress of our bed. Disgusted!!!!
It is funny how our landlord mentioned that there has never been issues with cock roaches in our building, they seemed quite surprised when we mentioned it. When the exterminator came to visit our building, he had mentioned that he comes regularly from month to month and other tenants have mentioned to us about fumigation. This is information that all building supervisors should be telling possible tenants because it just causes unneeded problems for everyone.

I havn't had any problems with bed bugs at all but there is a MASSIVE cock roach infestation in the building. The apartments are so bad, it doesn't matter how many times they spray, there always there and there are ALOT.

Anyone have an update on this location? Am looking to move into the area and having a hard time finding a place that has NOT been affected!

My fiance & I moved into this building way back in 2007. Our apartment was completely infested with bed bugs & we spent 3 nights in a motel while they sprayed twice, because the first round didn't work. I scratched my extremely itchy bites so hard I still have the odd scar on my legs.

I received a note today from the superintendent saying that they were going to be spraying my unit and other units because a teneant below me has bedbugs.
