Seriously disgusted with the fact that there are no security cameras! Do Not Buy in this building unless you like the smell of dirty Indian shit and burnt bannock

Agree with above comment. Just the OVERALL appearance of the exterior.... EVERYTHING but the kitchen sink is on the balconies. NO UNIFORMITY. STRATA it IS and that is the responsibility of the MANAGEMENT COMPANY && THE COUNCIL. SO true, the COUNCIL is only as good and effective IF* they know and CARE about the facility period. Such a SHAME. Could be an ideal building, BUT when TURNED INTO A RENTAL SITU... BUYER BEWARE. Downright RISKY. Never mind buying into, the real QUESTION IS>> Will you get your purchase price $$ when YOU decide to SELL... ME SAY FLATOUT NO!! GOOD LUCK. Telling you like it is !!

Here's the thing.... The first council meeting is set up and a show of hands is asked>> WHO WANTS TO BE ON COUNCIL... So PERSONS with absolutely NO STRATA COUNCIL EXPERIENCE put themselves on the strata council. Probably they come from a rental for year(s) and then thin k that they know it all in the day to day running of a large building and then others on council follow suit. From there it is a DOWNHILL NEGATIVE IMPACT to EVERY PERSON IN THERE. This allowing EACH PERSON to decorate their own windows, that is a NO-NO. In a strata setting, the word UNIFORMITY comes into play. Then the building ends up on this ~PLATFORM with 14 NEGATIVE REVIEWS and rightfully so... BUYER BEWARE. Glad I am not in there. Deplorable to view from the exterior, never mind setting foot in.

"Has improved immensely!"

A great place that has turned itself around! My wife and I own a unit in this building. We bought when it was under construction back in 2007 and we're looking forward to a sound investment. Initially it was not. There were many problems with poor tenants in the building for many years. However I can tell you that a lot of action has been taken since those dark days such as; in-house management, security FOB system, owners taking more care in tenant placement, and more. it has vastly improved and I am proud to say that it is a great place to live for families. Keep up the great work management!

SUPPOSED TO BE 9 reviews HERE... I only read one, that IS suspicious...The one that is written is dubious, toooo perfect and the other 8 are missing ?? That tells me BUYER BEWARE.....CHECK THOSE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS and ask for the FORM B so as you are not stuck with previous persons DEBTS, ie back maintenance and taxes....Just sayin !!

Funny because I see all the reviews. I also live in the building and this review along with the other recent ones are all pretty accurate. The place has improved immensely and is actually a very nice and secure place to live now.
unregistered user on October 11 2016:
I wouldn't say the comment above is 'toooo perfect' they acknowledged that it had many struggles until the last couple years after much effort. Sounds legit to me.
unregistered user on October 11 2016:
...and I also see all the reviews.
unregistered user on April 16 2017:
Lived there for two years in 2015-16. It was a good building and I never had any problems. Seemed pretty secure
unregistered user on February 21 2018:
Difficult to believe what one reads this day and age. Sounds GLORIOUS and PERFECT as one reads, but IS it really ? IF one is TRULY interested in buying into then GO A DOOR KNOCKING AND YES SPEAK*** to a HANDFUL and get the overall JUST of... GO TO DIFFERENT FLOORS, NOT* ALLLL ON THE SAM E FLOOR. BUYER BEWAARE WITH ANYTHING THESE DAYS. Considering buying, well think of all elements of.....noise factor, side, below and above. TOOOO late, once you have signed on the dotted line. EASY TO GET IN BUT HARDER** TO SELL. GOOD LUCK ALL.

"Better than expected"

Been living in a top floor of this building for a couple months now and things have been good. Rarely ever hear the neighbours, and the complex is fairly quiet, especially at night. Prices are reasonable and the highway access is amazing, definitely a huge perk. Maintenance and cleaning also seems to be kept up fairly well. It is mostly rentals, so there are some messy/noisy tenants in the halls and parking lot occasionally, but it is pretty minor and management seems to be good about filtering the bad ones. The newer fob system helps immensely, fobs only give you access to your floor so it is hard for anyone to sneak in. Overall I would recommend The Vibe, definitely a good spot for those looking to buy/rent a nice starter apartment in Chilliwack.

unregistered user on February 21 2018:
Again, Far tooo scripted.... What Joe Average would include suitable for prof, investors,students, first timers, young couples. WRITTEN BY MANAGEMENT. They HAVE to sell the building.... WAKE UP BUYERS.

"Mediocre"

Lots of students in here... Walls are paper thin I would only recommend top floor. Dirty carpets. Otherwise not a horrible place just not suitable for professionals and far from luxury. Definitely a 2 star!

"Vibe "

Much better key fob system keeps the buildings and parking secure and tough love seems to keep the place much more livable.

With this security system, would you have to run down everytime to let someone in?
unregistered user on August 11 2015:
Nope, you can hook up your phone to the front door buzzer and it will call you to give them access.
unregistered user on February 15 2018:
How do you recommend retirees and students (two opposite life) both suitable for this building? Thx

"Much better!"

I have lived in this building for the past 5 months and things are going well. I have good neighbors and landlords. Management seems to do a good job of staying on top of problems. So far my family and I are pleased with our choice to live here. Things have definitely improved from what I had heard about in the past. I have also heard that a new fob based security system is close to completion and will make things even more secure.

Did the underground parking really flood and why? Are there any problems with water leaking into the building?
unregistered user on January 12 2015:
The P2 underground parking is below the water table Management now run a pump when it rains and that stops the flooding

"Beware or Cleaned Up??"

Does anyone live here or visit here recently?? Looking to rent somewhere decent...don't want to live in a dive especially since we have a sweet 2 yr old. So I am wondering if the security is better now and if the place is cleaned up or if there is still puke & blood in the halls and elevator and filled with pot smoke? It has a lot of open suites so am wondering if all the good tenants are moving or are the problem people moving out?? Would you recommend this place to your own family??

unregistered user on October 11 2016:
In the last couple years it improved. No more problems with noise, drugs, or cleanliness. The unsavoury people were forced out. I'd recommend it now
unregistered user on February 21 2018:
Here we go again..... Asking a question here. ONE HAS NO CLUE AS TO WHO IS RESPONDING ?????? I mean really, could be MANAGEMENT OR A DISGRUNTLED NEIGHBOR. ONE ***HAS*** TO DO THEIR OWN*** LEGWORK TO SUFFICE YOUR VERY OWN QUERIES.

"disgusting!"

Loud, obnoxious neighbours Flooding in the underground parking And lets not forget about the blood and pee in the elevator, toenails and panties on the floor Nice suite and had excellent landlords. The strata management are a couple of jerkoffs and extremely frustrating to deal with. Side doors constantly propped open with rocks and sleazeballs hanging out front, trying to follow you in.

As mentioned in newer posts, this was a problem several years ago. It isn't any longer.
unregistered user on April 16 2017:
Wasn't the case in 2015-16 when I lived there. This is an old post so I wouldn put much stock in it anymore

I saw elevator walls scratched/dirty by furniture move in/out. Lobby or corridor was clean. Feb 2018.

"top floors great at the
Vibe"

The building itself was very nice, rarely ever heard the neighbors through the walls. if you're lucky to be in the units facing away from the parking lots it was even better. Too much trouble with pot smokers with no respect for others & tow trucks waiting to pounce every single weekend. Management made no effort to help the good ones and simply cleaned up after the bad ones without being proactive.
