    Every unit has one or more HVAC (heating and a/c) electrical systems. I have 2 since its a larger unit (which I think is stupid). I don't know how this works but we don't have any compressors in balconies. There must be a common one which all the units are attached to.

    The entire gym floor has a rubber floor, what I think is making that noise is when they lift the bench to an incline position, which is quite loud if you don't hold it while moving which most don't do. I do hear my neighbor when he's on the phone in his bedroom and when he comes home late. Our...

    No it doesn't. I have a 2 bedroom, when I first moved in my bill was over a hundred. There was some issue with the meter. It was adjusted. Now my highest bill in summer has never been higher than $80 but no one is home during day. It depends how low you keep your thermostat of course. My...

    they are black but with a nice pattern! The units and hallways are nicely finished and the units that face north should be very quiet since they are not facing King Street and street cars.

    B.streets Condos (Lindvest) - Real Estate -

    The floorplans are useless, what a shame the building is very nice looking and great location but the architects were smoking too much while drawing the layouts. Then again it seems most projects have non-functional layouts. Investors don't care, they don't visualize living in the space just...

    Can anybody recommend a good cleaning person who irons. Some friends from Madrid and Norway just moved in to Verve and need someone. Thanks

    Overall its a good building. I've compared to X, Verve, Casa, and Bloor St Neighborhood and by far 500 is better in many ways. They missed an opportunity to make a great building though. They skimped on some things and I think the designer and architect were a bit out of it when they put...

    I don't think it will be a big deal, they obviously mess up, not a big surprise considering. Anybody have dirty carpets in their hallways? I have complained to Roseanne about our floor and have been promised for months they would be cleaned and nothing. If they do as good a job as the lobby...

    I think that would be a great idea. Not many know about it, I have been following since the construction forum and then the real estate discussion and then this one. Had to do a search to find it.

    I wasn't aware that his forum was only for the board. I thought it was a place for residents to continue to share information and concerns of our building.

    It seems to me, from the lack of comments on this thread, that there is a lack of interest in our building which is not a good thing.

    Personally I haven't had any problems with Roseanne but I don't think she keeps up with what is happening in the building. I've had to remind her of things several times, things that I shouldn't have to tell her about to begin with. Anyone notice they finally repaired the hole in wallpaper...

    Great to hear. The renderings have trees so that can help.

    I think "elegantly landscaped" usually implies greenery! What about the other issues mentioned previously, the upkeep of the building and building PDI? Is that done? Working on it? It's just over a year and there are lots of things that need to be taken care of.
