Bala fitness club locks doors

Loraine White, CEO and president, said, "Bala Fitness is currently closed. We are in negotiation with another chain of clubs."

Apparently GoodLife Fitness has taken over the lease and reopened the gym this morning.

The four-storey first phase appears to be undergoing exterior maintenance on the southeast size.

I wonder what could be wrong with such a new building?

That's an Allied Glass truck, maybe it is just a problem with a difficult-to-access window(s).

Right, I forgot about the Allied Glass pickup and didn't even notice the name when I posted the photo.

I did notice when I walked past that one of the grey panels had been removed. You can see the exposed "under panel" (I don't know what to call it) facing Dockside Green along the top row of panels. It might be difficult to make out, but it appears recessed compared to the others.

There were condos in Sidney about 15 years ago that all the windows installed backwards, and there was a bit of a leakage situation.

I worked at the Tyee location up until 2008 when I was still with Coast Capital.

It was not terribly uncommon for (water) seepage/leakage to occur through the windows especially on the portions of the building where they joined at a 90 degree angle; that I can recall it occurred at least twice during the run up to the period the IT group was moving into the building in spring/summer. The issue manifested itself particularly in the aftermath of a prolonged rainy spell especially if accompanied by high winds. Presume by now that problem would be addressed, but perhaps not.....

We've received word that 655 Tyee, or Upper Harbour Place II, has sold to Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada and marks the return of Sun Life back to the Victoria market as a landlord.

CEI Architecture is looking to sublease their 5,300 square foot second floor office at Upper Harbour Place II (the five storey building). It is unclear whether or not CEI will remain in the building and occupy a portion of the floor or whether they will vacate. The lease is for a fully furnished space so it sounds like they're either closing their Victoria office or looking to downsize into a small satellite office space elsewhere.

 

Meanwhile the unit formerly occupied by Westbank to showcase both Shutters and Parc Residences on the south side of phase I's ground floor remains for lease and has sat empty since Westbank vacated well over five years ago.

CEI is looking to downsize to less then 1/2 of their current footprint.
