Westlake Village (Lake Shore @ Park Lawn, Etobicoke, Onni Dev, 38+ 43 + 48s, P+S/IBI)
Has anyone bought here? Just wondering some insight on the builder if I do decide to get a unit here. How's pricing compared to the first VIP prices?
We'll use this thread for those interested in purchasing at the last phase, Westlake Encore, as well.
Really great promos going on for the remaining inventory in the three phases. Great complex! PM if you'd like to get more info.
How are these condos? I noticed about 100 units from the various buildings showed up for rent on MLS. I'm thinking of renting in this area as I would drive to work in Etobicoke.
Great value! Seen one bedrooms plus den with Parking and Locker for $1200/month 6 months free rogers. Can't go wrong with a good deal especially if you are driving.
It appears that the Humber Wastewater Treatment Plant is in the vicinity. Are there any concerns about smells or odours emanating from this facility. I know that this is a big issue with residents who live near the Ashbridge's Bay facility in the east end. Thoughts?
I find the only spot where I can occasionally smell the Humber Plant is on the Gardiner to the SE of the plant (pretty much on the Humber bridge).
Humber is much smaller than Ashbridges Bay and the main potential odour offender at Humber (the headworks) is undergoing upgrades with a new odour control facility.
Thinking to purchase a unit here for investment purpose. Any suggestion? I was more leaning towards the south core financial district, but again the prices in that area is very very expensive.
There is a VIP sale this weekend (March 28-29) as per my realtor.
Hi! I'm considering buying a unit in Westlake3. I can't find any good reviews on the Onni group though, so I'm hoping to hear from current residents in the Westlake project. Most of the reviews are from buildings in BC though.
Re: Westlake: Are you guys/gals having any problems? Construction problems? How is the customer service...are they fixing deficiencies in your units? Quality finished unit, or lots of issues? Can you hear your neighbors or are your units well sound-proofed? How do you like the building, and living there?
need some of ur professional advise
just brough the condo westlake3 and wondering if this is a good investment to rent?
Hey, so I have indeed bought a unit in Westlake3 to live in. I managed to go walk around there and spoke with several workers who all say the construction is well done, and also spoke with several residents of earlier westlake buildings and they all seem to be happy, and say units are well finished and quiet.
Anthony: Renting out is usually good from an investment point of view, but you'll have to decide that for yourself depending on what all the numbers say. It might be that it won't rent for carrying cost, and then you'll need to decide if, and how much, additional money you're willing to put into a property. There will be a point where it isn't worth renting, and you'll be better off selling or living in the unit. Depending on your budget, you may also not be able to afford to live elsewhere, AND rent out a unit if it doesn't cover carrying costs. I would suggest you get a spreadsheet together to make sure renting out your unit is the best thing for you to do.
Has any one closed yet and know the closing costs?
I went into the office and they said it was closing end of August.
