Do not rent

(2.0 out of 5 stars)
by Kfidi Mar 11, 2019
I have lived in several condos in the area for the past decade, but never had I experienced such poor conditions, despite the astronomical rent price. There are several issues with the building: 1. The units facing the south/west corner (higher floors) are experiencing “whizzing sound” due to the issues with the builder- which the builders and management failed to take any action in rectifying (it has been more than a year)- the noise is unbearable. 2. Poor management and security (with the exception of 1 or 2 individuals). Management is most often not willing to assist and the security guards are very robotic. 3. When booking elevators you have to pay a $250/hour deposit in which they will reimburse after 7-10 business days (I have never heard of this process until I moved here)

harbour plaza is a great condo ,im happy to call home , security staff is amazing and helpful , the only people i hear that complain about security are over privileged people who do like to follow building rules . Or renters who have been told wrong info by the agent or landlord I have had no problem with receiving parcels , i signed a parcel acceptance form that was provided by the mgmt and it clearly stated what security can and cannot receive , the canada post office to pick up packages is very close , they have also just added community mail boxes for canada post parcels all in all its a beautiful building and great amenity floor

Floors major issue

(1.7 out of 5 stars)

I have been living in Harbour Plaza for less than one year. The unit was brand new when I moved here. However, in less than one year, the floor started floating and detaching without any reason in some areas. When I contacted the building management, they refused to take responsibility and said that the problem is humidity. This was surprising to me since I always dry-cleaned the floor and used the air fans properly and maintained a controlled level of humidity at the unit and since that even with humidity the floor cannot detach like this if the work was done properly at the beginning . I also discovered later that other residents have the same issue. The management just want to avoid honoring their warranty and they are blaming their residents for problems that they are not responsible for.

Useless staff.

(2.3 out of 5 stars)

We have been living at building 88 for almost a year now. The only complaint I have is regarding the management and security staff.

Many have stated that a change in management staff is required. The staff does seem to bring in a lot of negative energy,

I have personally had issues with receiving parcels from Canada Post and upon following up I have found out that the front desk only accept certain sizes of packages. After following up with Canada Post I have found out that their delivery staff have been turned away all sizes of packages. After discussing this matter with a few other residents I have discovered that many have the same issue and same feedback. The security staff is VERY dishonest and deceitful.

Furthermore, the elevators see, to be constantly down. Sometimes a few elevators at one time. This is unacceptable! There should be action taken by Menkes Developement to quickly resolve these matters.

On the positive side the 2nd floor direct access to the PATH is great! especially for those long cold winter days. Finding a parking spot is very difficult as there are not a lot of spots available most of the time.
