Was in town last weekend and had walked by this building. The material that was used to frame the top of the first floor/bottom of the second floor, facing the street reminded me of laminated wood; the type used to construct modern indoor furniture. Some of the panels had holes that were drilled into them but unused/unfilled, so I was able to look up into them and the material appeared like...cardboard. I am unfamiliar with construction materials so could be completely wrong here, but it would seem the materials used for the OUTSIDE may not be durable. What happens if the outside fails prematurely? Would the developer be responsible? Or would that fall under Tarion? Or would owners need to pony up an assessment? Given Toronto's high R/E prices, I'd think owners rightfully expect high quality materials and strict attention to details (fill up those drilled and unused holes).
