    South Unionville Square (Kennedy n of 407, Mady Dev Corp, 12s, Turner Fleischer) COMPLETE

    Can't remember off the top of my head but it was something like $9.30/psf/year for maitenance. No idea what the prices are now, but the prices are the same for investors vs personal use. The majority of the office spaces were bought be end users like myself who will actually use the office...

    South Unionville Square (Kennedy n of 407, Mady Dev Corp, 12s, Turner Fleischer) COMPLETE

    Yes, the contruction is going ahead smoothly and hopefully on time. I know that I got a letter recently promoting the resential condo sales to promote it more. Don't know what the sales numbers are for the residential units. I know that pretty much all of the commercial units and most of the...

    Got a letter saying that our closing will be Jan 17, 2009 and from what I understand both the South and North Tower will be closing at the same time.

    South Unionville Square (Kennedy n of 407, Mady Dev Corp, 12s, Turner Fleischer) COMPLETE

    Majority is still Cantonese dialect, but more and more are are mainland Mandarin speaking. Eventually a big chuck of Markham will be Mandarin speaking as it is the language of choice now even for most Cantonese speaking families as they send their kids to Mandarin school over Cantonese schools...

    South Unionville Square (Kennedy n of 407, Mady Dev Corp, 12s, Turner Fleischer) COMPLETE

    Yes, noticed that as I drive through the area alot. Thanks for letting people know with the photos. Actually got a letter invitation for the ground breaking ceremony, but found out there won't be any drinks or food, so didn't go:) That's a very good sign for anyone involved with this...

    South Unionville Square (Kennedy n of 407, Mady Dev Corp, 12s, Turner Fleischer) COMPLETE

    Thanks for the update Solaris as they are most useful. Unfortunately those prices are the going rate for condos in the Markham region these days. If you look at the Tridel building at Hwy 7 and Warden, these prices are actually quite reasonable:( I do like the set up of the entire complex...

    Lanterra

    Some of my relatives live in the 18 Yonge development and they are very happy with it. They have a pretty good track record and are about to finish Murano, Maple Leaf Square, etc.. so pretty reliable I guess.

    South Unionville Square (Kennedy n of 407, Mady Dev Corp, 12s, Turner Fleischer) COMPLETE

    The 8 storey condo high rise is on the south west corner of the plaza. The outer units will face the BMW dealership. I think they'll be more light coming from the 407 as the dealership lights aren't that big of a deal. There's also townhouses built on the east side of the plaza. I was at...

    South Unionville Square (Kennedy n of 407, Mady Dev Corp, 12s, Turner Fleischer) COMPLETE

    Not exactly true... in the South Unionville plaza, the T&T is part of the actual plaza. It's built and enclosed by the plaza itself. Anyone going to T&T will easily walk within the mall itselft. With the Landmark site, it's not part of the Landmark plaza at all, but a seperate entity...

    South Unionville Square (Kennedy n of 407, Mady Dev Corp, 12s, Turner Fleischer) COMPLETE

    I was told by a realtor that they've stopped building for now due to lack of interests since the recession began. If you look at the site, nothing has been done since they prepped the land. The SuperWalmart for example has already been built and they started building after the Landmark. I...

    South Unionville Square (Kennedy n of 407, Mady Dev Corp, 12s, Turner Fleischer) COMPLETE

    On a personal note, I bought a office unit in this plaza so I can move my practice to. Currently work just down the street at Kennedy and Dension so Kennedy and 407 is a good move for me as it's only a 5 min drive away. The only problem with the condo retail part as with most recent condo...

    1 Bloor East, DEAD AND BURIED (Bazis, -2s, Varacalli)

    There was a good episode today on the reality show "Big City Broker". One of the segments was specifically about the 1 Bloor opening fiasco. Great segment about how one of Brad Lamb's agent was trying to get hold of a couple of condos for a client. After paying people to stand in line, and...

    Milliken Centre (Steeles & Old Kennedy, Markham, MadyCorp, 7s, Kirkor)

    No one has really gone to Milley's everysince the Timmy Ho's opened up a few years back. The Shell gas station is convenient for me as I'm only right around the corner. Gonna have to go towards McCowan now to fill up as I collect Air Miles with Shell. Wonder what's going to happen to those...

    House maintenance fee.

    Houses are more expensive overall as they are much bigger. If you calculate the costs based on square footage, then condos are waaayyyyy more expensive so you are really comparing apples to oranges here. Also you have to consider how old the house/condo is.

    Anyone sold their own home? Or used a flat-fee MLS service?

    I say why not try to sell yourself first and see how you do for a couple of weeks and see how you like it? There's a bunch of for sale by owner websites, but I don't think you can list on mls without an agent of some sort. You can easily negotiate down to about 3-4% total commission these...

    Ïce Condos (Lanterra Developments, Cadillac Fairview) - Real Estate -

    True, utility costs will change as well so that needs to be taken care of in his calculations. Not good to get a real estate agent for Jani's case as he won't be in the country a lot. I don't know if the agent will be able to answer calls, repairs, complaints etc... throughout the year as...

    Ïce Condos (Lanterra Developments, Cadillac Fairview) - Real Estate -

    Land tranfers tax will be about 2% when you buy the building. Plus your mortgage payments will not be going towards your mortgage until occupancy occurs (around 6-8months). Don't forget to factor any loss time to try to find a tenants. And lastly because you will not be in Canada most of the...

    Ïce Condos (Lanterra Developments, Cadillac Fairview) - Real Estate -

    Solaris, Thanks for the price update. Hmmm.. actually the price has gone up less then I've calculated earlier. Closer to 2% instead of the 5-8% that I calculated earlier. Jani, Ice will be an excellent place if you are purchasing to live as the location and facilities are fantastic...
