They’re not done building it yet. Still crews on site doing whatever they’re doing, or at least thst was the case last time I went by.

Any updates from anyone on the commercial units along Vancouver?

 

Bosa still listing all of them as "Available," except for CRU 4 which has a deal pending. No word on who the prospective tenant is, though.

Is it just me or does the kitchen sink in that first picture look preposterously tiny?

Come on. No way could you fully immerse a very large watermelon in that sink.

 

i guess.  but what are you using it for?

 

I use it to fill 5 gallon buckets of water, which I then haul outside to wash the dishes.

No one actually cooks at 1008 Pandora; it's the premier destination for Skip the Dishes.

For a rental building, that's a really nice spec. 

+1 for the quartz countertop in the bathroom. 

 

For comparison in terms of spec, here is the recently finished Chord by Aryze:

Wow. Did they get the appliances from one of the Re-Stores?

yes they sure went cheap.  standard appliances and those cabinets that do not go to the ceiling. just the box for the hood fan vent hose.

Yeah when i walked through the Chord a while back I sure was disappointed. And to top it off a wood frame building with concrete floors... the worst of both worlds... No sound proofing and so hard on the feet.

Didn't think about that, but you're right. 

 

No floating floor with sound barrier. Bummer.

I live in a two bedroom unit at 1008 that looks identical to the pics above and can confirm a watermelon fits just fine. What I don't like about the sink is the extremely low water pressure from the faucet. It feels more like a water bottle refill station than a kitchen faucet and makes washing dishes a challenge.

How's the shower? Some buildings the pressure's fine on some floors and weak on others. No rhyme or reason.

Sometimes changing out the faucet tip can have a huge effect on pressure. I would also switch out the shower head if you're looking for more pressure. There's nothing quite like a custom shower head.

I would just talk to the building manager.  If I bought a new condo with that issue I'd talk to the developer so same thing.

Likely as simple as removing the rubber aerator ring that reduces the water flow in the name of conserving water. Reducing your consumption, yes, but also often gives you that weak water pressure.
