My suite in CityPlace has better finishes! These look more like the "investor package" options that were offered at Luna, not the standard packages. We have better cabinets, better fixtures, better tile, and a better backsplash IMO. I like the appliances, but those are easy to replace.

My interest in living there would be the building itself. Great location, great looking building. The interior finishes though, I'd be making a lot of changes once moving in. Not having to make any changes is part of the reason I bought at Luna.
That's what I've been trying to say here. The finishes are crap compared to the price paid. Cityplace finishes are better looking. Their upgrade is like a downgrade at cityplace. They charged extra for thermofoil cupboards which are downgrades at CP.

Completed my 1st PDI at ICE - I am very pleased with the finishes of the suite and the quality of construction. Something I can honestly say have not seen from Lanterra until this PDI (and I have done many PDI's on Lanterra product) I only had 3-4 items on my PDI - compared to about 3 pages at MLS

Finishes are far superior to anything in the area.. comparable to Charlie and 300 Front and from my experience, we could see resales easily in the $700+ a foot range. I actually read something about a comparison to Cityplace which is an absolute joke to compare to this building. I didn't even bother reading the rest of that post.

Common areas are still a bit rough but should look really good when done, especially with the super high ceilings and floor to ceiling glass and white marble floors all over.

The interiors look dated compared to those found in newer projects because they were most likely designed 4 to 5 years ago. However, the quality of material used in the suites doesn't seem bad at all. The interiors may not have been very thoughtfully designed (i.e. tiny kitchens) but I wouldn't call them cheap.

Yes, this thing was designed years ago but that doesn't excuse the dated finishes and design. Lanterra has been using that same ugly pink granite counter for years in all of their projects. There are lesser projects built 5 years ago that still look newer than the interiors of this project. The interiors don't even go with the exterior or common areas. Exterior = modern/futuristic. Interior = suburbs. This is a Lanterra thing.

I think you guys are overreacting...the finishes really aren't all that bad compared to other newish condos.

Yes the granite colour is dated but granite backsplashes, wall ovens, panelled dishwashers and panelled fridges are not.

Not really over reacting. The prices at Ice were pretty high back when it was being sold. Also, this doesn't live up to their model suite they advertise. They advertise modern and produce mediocre.

It can be pretty bad. Their interiors look dated unless you get an upgrade. And their kitchen appears to be one size fits all. No matter if you buy a studio or a 3 bedroom, you're getting the same kitchen. That said, the outside does look pretty nice.

That is one small Kitchen.

Seems we can get as much functional space (or more) as from an RV
