Lease cut short because of Building Fire
Former Tenant
Pros:
I enjoyed my time renting at 7 Ridgewood. The unit was nice with tall ceilings and it felt very open. Ideally, I would have liked to stay in the unit for more than 4 months. Jay was responsive as well. There was extra storage in the basement which worked out great.
Cons:
The main issue with this building was that there was no soundproofing. You could hear the neighbors clearly - fighting, screaming, laughing you name it. It truly did not bother me unless it was at night. There were some nights when I couldn't sleep because of the noise. The worst part about living here was one of the tenants had the audacity to bbq on the roof (which is illegal) thus causing a building fire and displacing all of the tenants in the building. The worst part about this is that fire was completely preventable. I could've visualized myself living in this building for a while and then this happened. The response of the landlord to the fire was mediorce. He did not notify the tenants of his decision (to keep the building and renovate, demolish it, keep lease until reno's are over, etc) until 5 days after the incident. When you have over 20 people that have been displaced you think the landlord would come to a conclusion sooner but noooooo. The pros (if you can call it that): the landlord agreed to cancel our lease plus we were refunded half of the month's rent and gave our security deposit back (which is legally required). They set us up with another realtor who helps out with the rest of their properties but they were determined to raise the rent on this building's tenants if they chose to remain with the management company and the units they had available were smaller than these. (which is horrible considering we all went through a fire).
Advice to owner:
Soundproof the building Fix the roof (obviously post-fire but actually make it nice rather than scattered and broken tile and definitely not safe fencing) Ensure that no one starts a fire on the roof. Include a fire extinguisher near the roof entrance.

Mostly Good Until the End
Former Tenant
Pros:
I loved living here. We stayed for a few months and it was clean and spacious and the price wasn't too bad either.
Cons:
The roof wasn't finished and was a total mess. Some moron was grilling up there and then the whole roof caught on fire. Not the building's fault but we had to vacate. The leasing company was a little difficult to work with afterwards. They also didn't want to replace some broken appliances. Super was awesome.
Advice to owner:
Fix the broken stuff.

Structural issues no soundproofing
Former Tenant
Pros:
Lots of basement storage and bike space. Super convenient to trains
Cons:
Roof was never fixed over two years of living there...just broken floors and chairs and fences up there, which looks terrible. Zero soundproofing between units and floors for back bedrooms between units were a mess. It felt like a floorboard see saw between you and the neighbors. First floor tenant in 2021 screams constantly and the noise permeates through the whole building.
Advice to owner:
Invest in high quality soundproofing and caulk across all seals, redo subfloor between units and make repairs to the roof. Apartment really became unbearable due to structural floor issue.
