My closing is 3 days from now and I still have no information regarding the final statement of adjustments.
I am not happy with this "last minuute" situation but I do not know who is to blame so all I can do is to scream at everyone )
I have heard that the builder intends to close without settling the blinds charges and to deal with the blinds issue after closing.
I guess i'm saying hello as a potential new tenant of the building!!! I'm currently living through the 10 day cooling off period, and came across this forum, and thought I'd ask of your opinion on the place!!! You guys (and gals) have lived for a couple of months in the building and I want to hear the pros and cons of the place. Obviously the blinds seem to be a big issue, so i'll make sure I cover my ass on this front...but other than the blinds, what are your thoughts good and bad of the neighborhood/building?
Hoping that I've made a good choice of location...

Besides the blinds issue and a false fire alarm early this morning, everything about this place is great! Location is fine, <10 min walk to Yonge St. 20 min walk to Dundas Square, 10-15 min walk to Yorkville, 5 min walk to Sherbourne station on the Bloor line. I find that it's close enough to enjoy downtown but far enough away from the noise, hustle and bustle of downtown. I absolutely love the layout of my unit. I have an 02 unit. Its space is 100% useable. The finishes are nice. The gym is adequate. The yoga studio is underutilized. I'm surprised the games room isn't full all the time. Haven't used the movie screening room yet but it looks nice.
If you're buying into this building for location's sake, you probably should plan for a long investment horizon. I find Sherbourne St to be the edge of niceness. It'll take a few years for the niceness to extend further East and help drive up the value of our building.
