crane1Hello all,

Some owners have raised questions about the height of the podium of the condo currently under construction to the north of our building. City Council approve a 6 storey podium. As of today, the contractor is pouring the seventh level.

I emailed the Toronto Planning Dept., Guilio Cescato, for clarification. His reply is copied below, but in a nut shell, there will be 8 levels. Apparently what I would consider the second floor is not counted as a storey, but is considered a mezzanine. Therefore there are 6 storeys, plus a mezzanine. The eighth level will be the outdoor amenity level.

Barry O.

Hi Barry,

 
The height of the podium has not changed, there is a slight technicality in that the podium has an open floor mezzanine in between two of the storeys, which counts as a storey – technically.  but the overall height has not changed at about 20 metres.
 
If you look at the elevation it can be a bit deceptive as well, the elevation shows 8 levels, which are not storeys, if you count the storeys, you see there are six.
 
Hope that helps,
 

Giulio

Greetings from the Board

Now all of the orbital door handles have been replaced with levers which are easier to use and thus safer in the event of an emergency.

We have selected Direct Elevator for our elevator modernization project. Details will be posted as they become available.

We have no facility here to dispose of fluorescent or compact fluorescent lights (CFL’s). Neither can they be disposed of in the garbage. Please remember to take them to a disposal site. (Canadian Tire at Bay and Dundas has a disposal box in Aisle 20.)

Our AGM is set for Thursday, June 19, at 7:00 p.m. in the Party Room. See you there. Two days later (Saturday, June 21) we can all party at our annual BBQ. More info will follow but save those dates on your calendar.

This year there will be 5 rooftop vegetable gardens. While their produce will be luscious and tempting, just a reminder that all of the veggies are solely the property of the farmer who planted them. There are herbs in the back garden (off the Party Room) that are for all the residents of the building to share.

On the rooftop we now have a blue recycling bin. A reminder that it is exclusively for recycling material. Please refrain from using it as a garbage receptacle.

Thanks to Sam Z. for laying the new floor in our Party Room kitchen.

Till next time,

Barry, Hildy and Judy
