I don't see part II becoming a reality for at least 4 years given current economic climate.

u never know. u know the old saying if they build it they will come

I pray that they change something about the second tower and not make it an identical twin of the first. Sure, it's not as bad as CityPlace, but 28 stories of concrete ain't that pretty.

sparky212 Apr 14, 2009 12:53 AM

maybe something like panorama in T.O

I've submitted my drawings of the buildings to the Diagram section. Let me know what you think, if they need to be modified in any way.

Tricar has changed the Renaissance website so its easier to look at floorplans etc, and are advertising open houses. I guess they are hoping to start renting soon!

It would be real nice if they set back the tower on York Street after the 5th floor. They motioned at this on the King Tower, but didn't actually really do it. A setback of 15 ft or so is really all that is needed.

I don't understand the London housing market, I really don't.
What is it with London building all these new massive rental buildings? In a city as cheap as London who would rent an expensive apt when they could buy a condo for less money?

MolsonExport May 4, 2009 1:14 PM

For one thing, strata fees aren't exactly cheap.

I did because I'm only temporarily employed in London but still wanted a decent place to live that was close to everything.

The thinking is that these buildings are starting off as rentals until they fill up and then will be changing over to condos.

For this particular instance, in the downtown, developpers have been given incentives such as exemptions from development charges and a portion of the property taxes are forgiven for (I believe) 10 years - the way this works is that only the owner of the property can receive these incentives, if they were condos tricar wouldnt be able to benefit as they would no longer be the owners.

So like the previous post said they could flip them to become condos when they no longer receive incentives from the city. I think its a pretty good deal if someone has the money to build a tower.

Thanks for info, it makes a bit more sense now.
I guess transferring some of the rentals to condos may be in the future for these buildings. Years ago I use to live on a highrise [can't remember the name} but it was about 12 stories between Ridout & Wellington and Commissioners and Southdale. Does Sandringham ring a bell? I'm not sure. Anyway I was very surprised to see it had gone condo.

BTW.......according Stats Can the new EI report states that CMA London 4,500 in the last year and thats just for people over 15 years old. That's pretty damn good!

I've noticed that strata fees back east are much more than in BC.

Any idea why that is?

I have a question, is it just me, or do they fill these "squares" with concrete, then cut them out and put in windows (along bottom floors)

sparky212 Jun 8, 2009 12:13 AM

no they're cast with windows
