The new owners of an apartment complex in the neighbourhood are worried about the smell and noise emanating from the apartments.
“There’s a lot of negative comments,” said a neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous.
It’s a concern that residents in the complex, located in the Queen Elizabeth II Park area of downtown Halifax, have been complaining about for some time. “
They’re very, very loud.”
It’s a concern that residents in the complex, located in the Queen Elizabeth II Park area of downtown Halifax, have been complaining about for some time.
The residents of the Queen Anne unit say they’ve noticed a “creepy” smell emanating from several apartments and are concerned about what that could mean for their own safety.
“I’ve seen people on the balconies and in the windows, people just walking around, walking around the whole time,” said the neighbour, whose name is being withheld.
“We’re very conscious of what’s going on in the community.
We’re also aware of what our neighbours are saying.”
The resident said there’s also a constant flow of noise coming from the apartment complex.
“It’s a constant stream of people,” he said.
“The apartment complex is like a small village in the woods.
There are lots of little buildings, a lot more people than you’d expect.”
One resident told CBC News she has heard the noise for months and has only recently started noticing it.
“For me, it’s like a nuisance,” she said.
“(It) really bothers me, and I’m really bothered by it.”
One of the residents said she’s not happy about the noise emanating in the apartment building.
“All the residents are upset.
It’s just a very bad neighbourhood,” she told CBC.
“This is a community that is a bit of a ghost town right now.”
