Yeah, I figured that much as I'm sure there will be plenty of deficiencies. Hopefully, Pasera is reasonable about addressing them. It's concrete, 1 elevator, 6 stories, first 2 levels are 2 story townhomes/home office type units, floors 3-5 are a mix of 1, 1+den and 2 br, floor 6 is a a few larger 1br and 2br penthouse suites. See www.lebeauinmission.com
I bought a unit on the 5th floor. I was quite excited about the purchase, but have to say I've lost all enthusaism after seeing how slow the construction has been going. Understandably, the condo market in Calgary is notorious for delays, especially if the developer isn't a powerhouse developer like Torode or whoever is building vetro/sasso. But wow, I had no idea it would be this
slow. The original posession date was supposed to be Dec 1 2006... a quick glance when driving down 4th street will tell you how far behind they are. They don't really bother with forecasting the completion date anymore either.... they give extremely rough estimates such as "late spring, but we don't really know"
I'm curious to see if any of the other buyers post here... and maybe we can vent our frustrations together. I've heard of problems with water seapage in Pasera's past developments, particularily the Conservatory. I can't help but be concerned about that!
I guess I can't complain too much though - they didn't put a "right to raise price" clause in the contract, so I'm getting it for relatively cheap in a neighborhood that is quite restrictive on new developments.
Thoughts from other future residents of Le Beau??
