Overall

Dramatic Design - Until You Get In The Rooms

The staff is very supportive, despite the fact there is high turnover, especially in the dining room. They are always responsive and the 2nd floor medical team is expedient when required. The meals provide good quality food and you always have alternate choices with the a la carte option. There are a wide variety of activities offered, including a movie theatre and musicians (sometimes) in the dining area. For the rents they charge, WiFi should be included in the room, but it is not.

When you enter the bldg, the interior design of the entrance and the hallways is indeed stunning. The large crown moldings and wainscotting add drama to the overall experience. The big let down is inside the actual apartments. When you consider rent is almost 7,000 per month (with only lunch/dinner incl), you wonder why the rooms don't have the same finishes. In fact, they are cheaply finished - no crown molding or wainscotting in there!! In addition, the light fixtures are cheap and dim, so be prepared to bring your own lights. There are no pot lights anywhere to highlight the living area or your artworks. The kitchenettes are cramped and cheap - vinyl covered fibreboard...no real wood here. As well, they supplied some of the cheapest small fridge/freezers you can buy and they are very noisy.

Take a careful look at all of this when you survey their rooms.
