Wow! As owners were you guys involved in the design process or was the renovations very basic (new carpet/wallpaper only) Will my tower is 16 years old and the other one is almost 18 years old. I live at Broadway Two in North York is there any forum for that building yet? Or any buildings in the NYCC bubbles?
As an owner who seems interested in your building you should ask your Board or Manager for the latest Reserve Fund Study and attend the AGM to ask about redecoration. In our buikding we hired a design company to draw up three designs and we asked owners to select one. The choice was very clear and almost everyone was very happy. We did this 5 or 6 years ago and now hire an expert painter to come each year to do touch-ups etc. We hope it will last 12 to 15 years and so far so good. Worst problem is one floor with several old dogs where carpets get urine stained!

I will contact my pm and bod for the reverse fund study. It’s unfortunate how the dogs urinated on the carpet. But usually condos do deep cleaning of carpets every month and spot cleaning of them 2 times a month.
