    I'm not sure you're going to have much luck. The standard agreement of purchase and sale specifically prohibits the transfer of ownership until the buildings have registered. Based upon my most recent discussions with Fernbrook and property management, this isn't likely to occur until May/June.

    What size of unit are you looking for out of curiousity? There are still a couple of brand new suites available, try contacting the sales office.

    There are indeed three levels of parking which are shared amongst the two towers. Level A is just P1, Level B is P2 and Level C is P3. Note that P1 has a seperate section for visitors parking which is fenced off from the resident parking, P2 and P3 are fully resident parking.

    The lockers vary in size due to the columns in the rooms. The standard sized locker however is probably about 4-5 feet wide by about 6-7 feet deep (going completely off memory here as I haven't been in mine for about two months). It's a tad small compared to previous lockers I've owned.

    No problem. I'm quite certain that you are not permitted to enclose the balcony.

    well, it would be disappointing as it would make a good place to enjoy the sun in the winter. Some other condos allow the balconies to be enclosed with glass.
    Are the buildings all completed from the outside yet. The buildings look great from Leslie south of Sheppard - like a castle on top of the hill.

    Just curious, how are you able to sell a unit when the building isn't registered and the agreement of purchase and sale clearly states no assignments?

    Also, the address of the building is not 25 Buchan Court, but rather 10 Bloorview Place, M2J 0B1.

    Good luck!

    The buildings are not yet fully complete from an exterior point of view. Phase 1 (south tower) is nearly copmlete while tower 2 is a little behind. There are also a host of small odd items that require attention around the base, but nothing major. I suspect once the weather gets a bit nicer we should see it all come together. Landscaping will make a huge difference.

    For anyone who is interested, Aria is now registered and final closings are set to take place over the next four weeks. Units should begin appearing on MLS and the like shortly.

    Hi eli,

    Check out MLS, there are now about 40 units of all sizes (ranging from just below $300K to about $1.2M). What's your budget if you don't mind me asking?

    I am looking at low-mid 300s for a 1 bedroom + 1 den. Preferably facing south on higher floor. I know there are a few in the mid 300s right now on the market. Trying to skip agent fees and get a better private sell deal.
