Revera Leaside Retirement Residence, Toronto Reviews (12)
- Frequent water interruptions
- Washing machines/dyers not reliable and expensive.
Old building with crumbling infrastructure.
Frequent total water outage lasting 8 hours or more which makes it difficult for those who are retired or stay at home moms.
Frequent false fire alarms (4 in last 10 days in 85 building including 3 after midnight when people are sleeping).
There is supposed to be a security guard in the lobby but you would hardly see any at the seat.
Roach infestation in many units that come through little holes in kitchen walls and bathrooms along the pipes.
One or two and sometimes three elevators are out of service in each building at any given time and they stay out of service for months because these are 45 year old elevators which are not serviceable to begin with and should have been replaced 15 years ago. Extended wait to go up and come down sometimes 20 minutes and more. Management does not care if tenants are inconvenienced.
The pharaoh ant infestation in these building is a whole other problem.
This building is getting old (40 years). The elevators seem to be original and very frequently out of service. This year four out of six elevators are frequently out of service. That means only one elevator for the low-rise and one for the high-rise sections of the building. Management suggest they will be refurbished next year but that is what they said last year. 2-stars if they ever get the elevators replaced.
Frequent water outages due to broken pipes or urgent repairs. Frequent power issues as well.
New tenants will be required to pay for hydro/electricity - no longer all-inclusive.
The HVAC (heat, ventilation, air conditioning) units are moldy, musty, never serviced (except for cheap low quality filter changes). Windows leak cold air terribly in the winter.
This layers of 40-years old paint peeling (more like cracking) off the walls but management will not re-paint for an existing tenant. Do not want to touch it - probably lead paint under there.
Chronic issues with small red ants throughout the building. Staff attempt to resolve several times but the ants always return.
Some staff professional and friendly - they try to keep the place maintained. But upper management and a number of the maintenance staff are both nasty to deal with and incompetent.
Neighborhood appears to be in a state of decline at the moment.
This was a decent place to live 10+ years ago. Now - Not recommended.
Edit: Wow this place has declined even further over the last six months. Many new large multi-generational families moving into single apartment units causing even more over-crowding of elevators and grounds. Very common problem with apartments just down the street. The water outages never end. Frequently only one elevator working. The so-called elevator repairs appear to be simply refurbishing again - they are 45 years old - replace them! Low rise elevators will not be completed until 2018 if lucky. Front lobby entrance doors broken, more than half of the electric assist doors are stuck or broken. Hand sanitizers in the B1 level are all non-functional. Moving out ASAP.
first in the adult bldg, then in 1981 in the family bldg.
the facilities were realty quite good and back then the maintenance staff was excellent.
now we are retired and are considering going back as these apts are large and generally well maintained. we have Friends still living there after 30 years and they strongly suggested we come back to this place. we will be looking for a large one bedroom unit or a small(er) two bedroom. either bldg is fine but we'd prefer a higher floor.
