Multi-year residents

(4.3 out of 5 stars)

...We have been very pleased with our purchase and quality of life since the beginning. We have gotten to know many residents and everyone is friendly and cordial. The location is fantastic, facing the lake and flanking the Mimico creek. We can see the sunrise and birds feeding by the water. The amenities are extensive with beautiful terraces for lounging and barbecuing. The management is really pleasant and so is the rest of the staff. We have had some issues with elevator maintenance, which are rare now and quickly resolved in the last few years. The neighbourhood is centrally located with easy access to downtown, Pearson airport and major highways. We are also across from the waterfront bicycle trail and have a seasonal farmers market each Saturday. The balconies in most units are huge which allow for a superb balance on indoor/outdoor enjoyment. With unobstructed views of Lake Ontario and the Toronto skyline, this building provides a wonderful place to live...

Super nice security

Best condo building in Mimico. The security guards are super nice and always say hi to us. Not sure what the other reviewer is talking about. The gym is great and the party rooms are amazing. This condo is the best really.

Number of issues...

...We moved in to this building on April 15th and were the first tenants in our unit as this building just opened in the Spring. Positives (there are some, they just in no way outweigh the negatives, unfortunately): -shared gym is never too full to enjoy it properly. never had to wait for a cardio machine -pool is also rarely used -party rooms look stunning (though are not free, even on the west end) -We are renting an '02 unit which is a 2 bedroom 1 bath and the view is breathtaking -closets are not tiny and the kitchen is very big by condo standards -the area is growing with shops, salons etc. opening up to service the condos Now for the negatives: -this building still has not executed a full window clean and our windows with the breathtaking views are positively filthy. there was an announcement in August that this is to commence - however nothing has actually happened. I was told the window clean will be finished for the entire building "weather permitting". In other words I have 0 confidence that this will be done before it snows. Property Manager told me last week (Sept 19th) that 1/4 of the building was done in a month! and they will get to us when they get to us (weather permitting). This is absolutely ridiculous. -The parking garage entrance arm has been broken for 3 months and is showing no signs of getting fixed. a couple weeks ago, a second garage arm that leads to tenant parking broke as well. again not showing any signs of getting fixed. -one of the front doors is missing a handle for about 4 months now. something about it creating a draft and making a secondary door slam so the management just took the handle off (looks terrible to prospective buyers/renters. I have actually heard people looking at units ask their agent how this is the case in a brand new building). -The elevators are absolutely useless and keep breaking constantly. in the past 5 months, we have had a total of about 2 months with all 3 elevators working. otherwise, this 43+ stories building is mostly "serviced" by 1 elevator. You can imagine what this does to the quality of life here. we have to actually consider sometimes whether it is worth the hassle to go to the farmers market on Saturday morning, or should we just stay in to avoid cramming into a volatile elevator with 20 other people and wasting 20 minutes just to get to ground floor. Residents and visitors (including real estate agents showing units) are getting stuck on almost weekly basis. Once an elevator is broken - it takes weeks to fix it. The boars of directors claims it is a warranty issue and the company that provides the service to the elevators "has not been very cooperative". I cannot wait for our lease to run out so that we can move somewhere where I do not feel like a prisoner in our own home. And I am physically fit enough to have to climb down/up more that 30 floors when pressed - but I can't imagine how elderly folks in this building are faring. In short, I don't know who's responsibility these things are - property management (First Service Residential - formerly Simerra) or the board of directors. Frankly, I don't care. I just know that I changed my mind about buying a unit here and will make sure no one I know does...
