Oh man, what a gorgeous unit!  :construction:

 

Have you seen the drawings to the massive development that will be proposed along Yates/Quadra......this unit will literally be wrapped by it on both sides; assuming it has legs and gets built one day.

Which reminds me, do we have a thread for that on here yet?

IMG_0776.jpg Moved in Friday the 10th.  Crews from Campbell still on site with finishing touches on the upper floors, but our 5th floor unit is complete with no obvious defects.  The only real headache is the elevators during working hours, jammed with move-ins and construction workers.

Good stuff, Thaicobb! Fifth or sixth floor? 

 

You're going to have some fun with those elevators for a little while, that's for sure :)

You should be walking up 5 floors anyway!

Congrats thaicobb! How exciting. 

What finally had you choose Escher?

If it's like my building, you can't actually up to your floor for security reasons.

The 834 (another Chard) is like that as well. FOB only gives you access to your own floor and the parking levels, with no stairwell FOB access pad.

...FOB only gives you access to your own floor and the parking levels...

That's pretty common in most new builds these days, is it not?

So if there is a fire and you run into the stairwell, you can only go down?  What if you've arranged a helicopter to pick you up on the roof, away from the flaming inferno that is the 1st and 2nd floors?

Every certain number of floors allow for re-entry. Way less inconvenient to have friends on those floors.

 

Fortunately the FOB gives you rooftop access as well. That's where I store my parachute!

My girlfriend used to live in the same building as me, just the opposite corner and a few floors up.  Would have been strange to always have to take the elevator.

Perhaps you could have asked for extra fobs.

My girlfriend used to live in the same building as me, just the opposite corner and a few floors up.  Would have been strange to always have to take the elevator.

 

Imagine.

 

She's setting the mood, calls on for you to run up. You sprint up the stairs, but no luck! The door is locked for security reasons. No worries you say, you have a FOB, you can just take the elevator to her floor. Hell no! Your FOB doesn't give you access to her floor. So you head down to the lobby, run outside, and call her on the buzzer. She buzzes you up, and tosses her phone aside in preparation for your arrival. You sprint to the elevator, but BAM, someone else is there waiting and they've scanned their FOB in the elevator before you, superseding the buzz up you just got from your lady. Disgruntled, you run outside once again and slam those digits on the buzzer like you've never done before once more, but she's not answering! Her phone is in the corner of the room, tossed aside out of the excitement of your arrival! She doesn't know you're not already on your way! Outside with no way to contact her, you now only have one choice. You head to the opposite corner of the building, and as if you're in some sort of crack-induced rage, start screaming her name at the top of your lungs, hoping she'll hear you through her closed windows! But no, VicPD, on their new beat patrol, notices you and assumes you must be homeless and drugged, throws you into the paddy wagon and takes you to the station. You plead that you're just trying to get laid, which only proves their suspicion even more! Hopeless, you resign to your new life, knowing full well that you can never turn back.

 

All because your building had enhanced security.

Haha!

 

Luckily when someone buzzes you up, their floor will be 'active' in the elevator for anyone who pushes the floor for a period of five minutes.

There is stairwell access from the roof and from level 5 or possibly 6 cant remember which one but they are not locked
