Greetings from the Board

Much has happened in the last few months:

Onyx Fire’s installation is complete.  Now our fire safety system is updated and can communicate with the elevators.

We hope everyone is enjoying the new LED lights that have been installed in the garage, stairwells and corridors.  They have a longer shelf life, are cooler and use less energy.

Our first new elevator is completed.  Enjoy the smooth ride!

PACE is almost at height and the Ryerson residence will begin digging in June.  Nothing is yet finalized regarding the Tribute building to the west of us.  Changes in plans continue to be made.

Be sure to attend the AGM on May 27th at 7:00 p.m. in the party room.

Stay tuned for information regarding our annual BBQ in June.
