Looks nice from the outside. Once you live here...not so much. Everything is shoddily built from the cabinets to the cheap paint they use. Walls are thin. Floors are thin. Management is fairly rude (though they do respond the most).

What did you like most?

Convenience of the neighbourhood. Within a few minutes walk from grocery stores, red line/brown line, bus stop etc. Covered parking in the building (though a hassle to get to). Washer/dryer in unit. 24/7 building maintenance if anything does go wrong.

What did you like least?

Pressure to re-sign a year long lease comes quickly (2 months before move-in). The guest suite that they mentioned when I moved in has gone up significantly in price and makes it unaffordable relative to hotels nearby. It was an amenity I had planned on using but have had to skip.
