    Toronto Bisha Hotel and Residences | 146.91m | 44s | Lifetime | Wallman Architects

    Your absolutely right. I didn't buy a unit at Bisha. And I appologize if I offened you or anyone else. But I disagree about having nothing to do with Bisha. The developers are the same. And very likely, the builders will be the same (seems to be a correllation between Tucker HiRIse and...

    Yeah... you'd think standard finishes didn't translate into poor finishes. Speaking of finishes, I have an interesting investigation I'm doing on the painting.. or lack of painting in some areas. Look forward to my post on that. Paper already going. Emails between me and Lifetime. Also...

    Yes, we did a PDI. But our rep who walked us through basically said "oh we'll fix that before you move in" or "that's normal... but we'll make sure its ok" or something along those lines. In fact, we noted a number of dents in our floor. And when I went to do the follow up, they had simply...

    Disapointment and anger doesn't even begin to describe what my wife and I feel. Thanks for the post. I guess now you have something to point to when you tell people about developers cutting corners eh? If you have others that have the same experience, tell them to message me, I'd like to...

    That is the vents btw. The ones for your exhaust fans/ERV. They are covered by spring or pressure flaps. When the wind causes enough negative pressure on the side of your building, it tends to pull the flaps up and then they smack down. Other pressurization issues can also be triggering it...

    Sigh. Because the status quo sucks. We all tend to hide our shame and hope that it'll all go away, but in reality it won't. My unit will still be a poorly constructed house. My wife and I will just deal with it.. like we've dealt with all the other curve balls life has thown us. This is our...

    Buyers beware - construction at its worse! Just wanted to give potential buyers of Bisha the same heads up I gave the general Bisha thread crowd. Before you buy... think about it. Bisha will be designed and built with most likely the same hands that built M5V... and look at how that...

    Thanks for asking Lazarus I'll take the definition of commissioning right out of the LEED 2009 handbook, since it does such a great job at explaining it. Commissioning is the process of: verifying that the project's energy related systems are are installed, calibrated and perform according...

    Hi All, First off, I wanted to say hi to all the future neighbors out there. The building is starting to shape up and is looking to go through the last phase of details and what not. Looking at this thread, it seems like there is a lot of negative feelings on the architecture of the...
