Yup, this is one of those cases where I really can't believe the experience we've had (and are still having). I remember stumbling onto the King East thread about a year ago and being a little worried but thinking maybe lessons were learned from it and it wouldn't be the same in Ottawa.I've heard stories of frustration with Lamb's projects as well. Though he sets out to build some very attractive buildings, he doesn't seem to be a builder at the top of his game. It wouldn't be the first time I heard of quality, timing and customer service issues with his projects. People generally don't complain in public unless they've had a genuinely bad experience or are the types to feel entitled to special treatment for no reason.
We as in the general public will never have to see the inside. We comment on what we see, which is the exterior. The interiors look no different than a Lamb condo (like it or not).What do you mean "we"?
They are not remotely close to "soft loft" by any definition of the phrase, other than the hideous unfinished concrete ceilings and walls.
You'd be surprised.There is no "concrete" (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?!?!?) definition of a "soft" loft, but to characterize these units as such is completely ignorant.
I guess I am just disappointed because it IS a rather attractive building from the outside, but aside from a few penthouses, I can't imagine anyone who isn't accustomed to tuna can accomodations would want to live there. /2c
