    I'm still waiting for our meeting. :confused:

    I was told we'll be one of the last called, since we're near the top....

    EDIT: Going through my junk mail - they just sent me an email today telling me to call them for an appointment. I thought i would be called. good thing i still comb through junkmail.

    Ya, I got an email this week too and I'm on the 35'th so I assumed they were getting close. Was just wondering if anyone had any info on prices for finishes / upgrade etc.

    I got a unit 12th floor 808 sqft south east corner.
    It is 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom unit.
    Anyone has any idea how much can I sell it for when the move in day comes?
    How much can I rent it for?
    It is strange that I cannot find the floor plan in their website anymore.

    S07 UNIT

    There's a PDF to the South East Unit floor plan. If you bought it about 3 years ago, i'd say its safe to assume the price is 25% higher already.

    But this is for floor 24-29 only.
    Mine is on floor 12.
    25% increase is good.
    can I rent it for $2000?

    I think $2000 is fair.

    I know it says 24-29, i didn't think floor plans varied much between floors 6-37, besides the standard and Signature options. I think this is showing signature since hardwood floors are in the bedroom, where standards apparently dont have hardwood flooring for bedrooms as a base.

    I could be wrong though.

    $2000 sounds fair, considering the good amenities.

    But my unit is only 808sqft instead of 1000+sqft.
    Can I still rent for $2000?
    I am worrying about the cash flow.

    Does that 808 sqft include the balcony? I believe the floor plans include the balcony's square footage. Yeah, I have a 1 bedroom unit and feel safe to say it can be rented for at least $1500/month minimum. Check around to see if Pure Spriit has any rental units up for rent, and what their average square footage and rate is. it would be a decent base to go on.

    I think 808 sqft does not include the balcony. Are you sure the floor plan includes the balcony squre footage?
    I will check out the rental price for pure spirit to compare.
    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I checked the floor plans on the site.
    It seems that for 6-23 floors, there are one extra unit T07 sitting in between those South corner units. So it is smaller from 9 - 23 floors.

    You are right - my bad.

    It makes sense to me now - im a T09, yet i have an 08 unit (i'm up in the 30's).

    Looking forward to moving in next year! :)

    wow. 30's a lot more expensive. I wish I have the money back then.
    Did you check how much is it per sqft now?
    Can it be more than $600/sqft?
    I am getting excited.
    I am so glad that we pay property tax based on the purchase price, not the price now.

    I dont quite follow? are you talking about maintenance fee's? or selling value? if selling, too many factors come into play - the view/direction, the floor, the interior, amenities, etc.

    Yeah, the excitement is building on our end too.
