What Residents Are Saying
“As an owner for the past 6 years, I have been really pleased with this building. Despite its age, it is extremely well maintained and appears in better condition than much newer condos. It is well managed with a good reserve fund, and a keen group of mature owners who genuinely care for the maintenance and future of the building. Their rec centre is the best I've seen of many condos.”
