Drug deals, homeless visitors and 4 am battles: in the new apartment complex & # 39; luxury boutique & # 39; Melbourne – where residents sleep with axes on their doors and knives under their pillows
- Anxious residents of the apartment complex in Melbourne said they were living in fear
- Fighting broke out in the middle of the night and suspected drug deals
- Photos show a man in the hallway fainting and an ax left in front of a door
- Apartment owners have complained and ask to do something
Residents who spent years moving to a new apartment building in Melbourne claim that the & # 39; boutique & # 39; building is flooded by tenants of rental properties.
What was sold as a & # 39; luxurious & # 39; apartment complex in the municipality of Whitehorse in the east of the city, has turned into a tower of terror.
An ax was left outside a door, fighting broke out in the middle of the night, and suspected drug dealers reportedly did business on the property.
One owner, who spoke about the condition of anonymity, told Herald Sun. she slept with a knife under her pillow.
Terrified residents have barricaded themselves in their apartments because they live in fear of their neighbors (pictured, a man has been seen sleeping in the corridor at the & # 39; luxury & # 39; apartment complex in the east of Melbourne)
& # 39; I would wake up and just vibrate if I had no control over my body. & # 39;
The apartment complex, which was not mentioned at the request of the owners, consists of 79 units.
Fifteen of these units belong to tenants of social rental housing and it is said that only a handful of problems cause problems.
In one case, a mother went to McDonald's in the early morning hours and let her four-year-old girl scream in the streets at four o'clock.
A man was found curled up in a ball and fell out of the corridor and a shopping wagon full of clothes left in the walkway.
Another fed up, said her neighbor shone a torch on her in the middle of the night before she hurled verbal abuse at her.
& # 39; When it was advertised, it was set up as a boutique, luxury apartment and a place of community, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; You can check the suburbs and do all the good things, but without really having an idea of the neighbors before you go inside. How do you know? & # 39;
She said she feared that the persistent problem would undermine property, which cost many residents years to save money.

The company secretary of the owner of the building argued for a better screening process.
& # 39; We are happy to live with people who are at a disadvantage. & # 39;
CCTV cameras have been cited as a possible security upgrade while several complaints have been submitted to the Ministry of Health and Human Services.
A DHHS spokesperson said senior representatives had already met owners and had a greater presence on the property.
They said a meeting would be held in the next two weeks between corporations, domestic workers, and the Victoria police.
Daily Mail Australia contacted DHHS and City of Whitehorse for comments.
