Went back to Alleens at College Park today. (They have a 50% off, free installation ad running).
Dealt with Irena. She was fantastic.
The cost to cover a foglia unit with 5% or 3% solar shades will be $3900 to $4100 plus tax. This is an amazing price considering my earlier research revealed it would cost about $8500
Irena said they have this offer extended to all Casa owners (although I don't recall seeing anything about this).
Anyways, if you want a deal on solar shades check out Alleens.
And as for the additional move-in delay rumour... I haven't heard a thing so it must have just been a rumour.
When you say, "the gym is done" do you mean there is actual exercise equipment? I'm moving in very soon and am contemplating buying a 1 or 2 month membership in the 'hood to have some place to work out while they finish up the 5th floor.
Thanks for that. I have to agree about the tiny gym. It's clear Cresford put zero thought into it. There should be at least double the number of treadmills and ellipticals for a building this size.
Does anyone already in the building have experience with either Rogers or Bell for HD TV and high-speed internet set up yet? I'm trying to decide which provider is best. I've heard that the Bell Entertainment service is excellent, but I don't think CASA is prepped for that service. Any advice would be very much appreciated. My interim closing date is Wed Feb 24 and I'd like to up a running ASAP.
Correct, all of the equipment is in place.
1 stationary bike
1 recumbrant bike
1 weight rack and bench
2 different upper body weight machines
They have not yet installed TVs but there are cable and power outlets installed all along the ceiling. Looks like there will be about 6-8 TVs put in.
There is also a large yoga room. Personally if I had to make 1 complaint it would be to question why they made such a compact gym in such a large condo yet decided to use almost as much square footage towards a yoga room. I don't know much about yoga so perhaps I'm missing something here but what is the purpose of the room that I imagine might seldom be used to it's full capacity? It can probably accomodate 12-15 people doing yoga at once which is almost double the capacity of the gym. I suppose that at some point in the future if this turns out to be the case they could always convert the yoga room into a cardio room.
Saw this in person today. It's definitely a small space crammed with equipment... however, the equipment appears to be of high quality... just wish there was twice as much as I bet there'll be a lot of gym-goers in this building.
