There goes my convient uhaul location. At least it's a handsome building and a nice compliment to Art condos too. Making for a nice intersection.

Positives....
-its the typical long narrow tubes type of condo but the best Ive seen so far ( still its a long narrow tube)
- very well finished
- individual gas fired forced air heating



Negatives ...
-Pretty Expensive
- There is a 14 story building going up on the lot just south of it.
- uses a car elevator system ( expensive maintenance)
- no visitor parking
- bulk metered gas ( the roof top units could place a open fire pit using the buildings gas)
- no LED lighting
- not sealed double paned windows with argon, just two pane low E

That's an interesting critique. I wish we'd see newspaper articles critically evaluating developments by looking at positives and negatives from a buyer's perspective. Newspaper real estate articles have traditionally been written like advertisements for developments, describing a building's features and selling points without identifying any weaknesses.
