and actually on that note I was wondering how many changes they're allowed to make on a condo building. If I was a pre buyer I would expect that what I purchased would be what was presented to me. Anyone here enlighten me?

Marketing began back in October of 2017, so it's been TWO years!

Nah, it was probably just BVic going in to see if they'd sold a third unit yet.

I have the same question!

For example: buyer of vista's 71st floor penthouse and roof terrace obviously sees value in the architecture

What if they added the blow-through floor and the buyer said "yeah, nevermind"

Let's just say those sales contracts were drafted by the developer's attorneys.

You'd have to prove they didn't deliver you the unit you signed for to get out of it. Changes to the units around you won't be enough.

Yeah, condo buyers are buying location, layout, and views, and usually the interior finishes as well. The architecture of the building adds prestige but the developer won't do anything that ties their hands to adjust the overall design as needed.

Developer's contracts are terribly one-sided. been through it twice.

even if the unit they build does not appraise by your bank, it's not their problem. you have to find the extra cash.

I'm probably not going to buy new again. Then again I've said that before.

From the train it looked like a backhoe moving around the site and a few guys in construction hats milling about.

Yes, I was thinking the same thing myself. When you see the architectural drawing it gives you the impression that the base is squeezed into a much narrower plot of land.
