What a worst condo!

(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Mother Apr 06, 2019
I have been living in this condo since August 2018. Since then I got numerous emails about heating and hot water and elevator issues, every week or twice a week. Especially, this harsh winter there were a lot of heating and hot water problems. This morning I've just got another email. Urgent Announcement Dear Residents on the 4th, 3rd and 2nd floors. We are currently experiencing a hot water distribution problem due to issues with the pressure regulating valves on the 5th floor. We have placed a call for emergency service. Updates will follow shortly I cannot help writing all these critical issues and let all the people know about this condo. I still remember my moving experience badly. I bought a lot of stuff from IKEA and park my car P5 and carried them in front of P5 elevator door. It never comes down to me. As a result, It took over an hour and a half hour to carry all. I went to the front desk to ask what happened with the elevator, and the staff said very arrogantly "you just carry them"! That's from P5 to the 3rd floor. I had to over 10 times up and down all the stairs. There was no notice about the "Out of order the elevator" I almost cried. Now nothing changed. Anybody knows how can I get some compensation from all these difficulties? I am thinking that I may contact the landlord or the realtor or the management department? I wish nobody should suffer like me. Remember, the condo problems keep maintaining the whole my resident period from the beginning until now.

POORLY Managed

(3.6 out of 5 stars)

I have heard the rumors about the management staff beings racist until I experiences it myself. I have seen coloured resident owners being treated like stranger that have walked in from the street. Mean while, I have seen people waiting around the front door waiting for someone with a fob key to enter so they can sneak in.

Overall, the building is still a great purchase. The amenities are great.. there was a water leak from rain in the gym which has now turned into mold and the management staff has yet to deal with this matter after countless reminders.; just bad maintenance staff who dont care. The elevator problems of the past have been improved but still not the best.

I have also seen many residents complaining of missing parcels.
