JayBee, do you still have noise issues or have things calmed down a bit?
It's not bad, but I think a lot of it has to do with one of my neighbours not moving in yet. My neighbour on the other side isn't bad. I don't hear her too much, but if I go up to the wall, I can hear quite a bit (when she's playing music or talking/watching tv). When I have my own TV on, I don't hear anything. The weird thing is it's not like she's "loud" it's just that the sound is coming through that little 6 inch gap that separates the window from the wall. That little area is not soundproofed properly. I'm a snorer and I do encounter some screamers on the odd drunken night
. There's no doubt that I'll keep my neighbours up since our bedrooms are attached.
With that said, I know other buildings with glass curtain walls that don't suffer from this problem. Glas and Spire are 2 that come to mind. Looks like the thick wall continues all the way to the window.
With Murano - Look at the walls by the window..they're less than half the thickness of the rest of the walls.
Casa (If you look closely, you can see the thinner wall by the window):
Glas (looks like the thick wall is caried right though to the glass):
The wall is basically the same thickness as the spandrel? which can't be more than 6 inches. This is a huge gaffe on Lanterra's part. I heard 22 Wellesley has soundproofing issues as well (same builder, same window/wall construction). We'll see what happens...hopefully they got their act together on Maple Leaf Square and One Bedford.
