There are countless issues with this building almost on a daily basis now. It is very sad as the building is only 2 years old. There have been multiple floods due to poor design, workmanship, negligence and management. The amenities floods being the worst. The gym flooded due to the sprinkler system being installed right beside glass on the outside walls and burst, severely flooding floods 4 and down. The gym just reopened now, 6 months later with no compensation to the tenants or landlords for the inconvenience let alone that we pay for these amenities and were unable to use them for that entire time. Some days we don’t have hot water for almost the entire day. It’s tough to say if the flood was remediated properly, it could have caused mold throughout especially with the humidity and lack of proper venting/ airflow. There are excessively high humidity levels throughout the building which can lead to respiratory and other health issues. It has also caused all of the LVT floorings in the units to buckle and popped off some of the baseboards in some of the suites. There is considerable cracking showing significant movement in the building which started after year 1 and continues to worsen. The grout and materials in the bathroom and kitchen are very cheap. They grow mold and mildew too easily even throughout the winter months when the humidity levels are not too high. 4 new buildings are going up around this one, so views/light will be restricted soon. In the meantime, we have to live with loud construction starting 7 am 6 days a week and crazy amounts of dust /dirt coming into the balcony and the units. The floor plans with angled walls does not make for an easy to furnish suites. The bathroom sinks are a matte texture that easily stains and gets dirty too fast. It is so shallow, you splash everywhere. The thick sink design takes away so much space that there is little to no counterspace for any of your products, making it very difficult to get ready / shave etc. The window quality is poor as it doesn’t keep the heat out in the summer or the cool in the winter. Speaking of which, it is very difficult to make window coverings work as the water lines go right up to the glass. The gym doesn’t have a waterline for filling water bottle. The BBQs are always out of service. I could go on for days... The building tried to look cool but just cut way too many corners. Don’t be fooled by the cool facade.

Do Not Live Here

I started renting this place 2 years ago, and originally everything is going fine. The craftsmanship are not the best with stove tops that doesn't sit flush with the counter, oven knob that won't turn, etc. I overlooked these since they are not big deals. However, there are 2 condos being constructed across the street so you'll wake up to the sound of construction in the early morning and persists throughout the day. It also gets very dusty so you can't use the balcony. The past month the gym was flooded, and the units will all of a sudden stop having access to water or only cold water which is far from ideal during the winter. I'm not sure if this is due to maintenance being completed, but if that's the case the tenants should be notified. Which leads to the last issue in that the building management is slow to respond to issues. Do not recommend!

Cut corners

(3.0 out of 5 stars)
by Disappointed with CenterCourt Dec 06, 2018
Lots of corners cut - sliding doors that don't close fully because of baseboards,. Misfitted (non-customized) kitchen cabinets, crooked walls and windows, slopping grouting in bathrooms, loose flooring that buckles up, empty hollow doors, shower with no built-in shelving. Need I say more? Center court is geared strictly to investors who don't notice the devil in the details.

Renting here...

Great building and fantastic location,,, steps to Subway, P.A.T.H., Eaton Centre. The amenities are also very good! I don't need a gym membership anymore! I just wish developers would stop making such small and useless kitchens. I like to cook and eat healthy food.. so the sink and counter space is VERY minimal. ALSO, the new compact fridges are awful! you can barely fit a weeks worth of groceries.
