Maybe that's why so many developments use the familiar grey or green spandrel? Because spandrel warehouses are full of that stuff? Oh, sure, we could get you something different. But it will take time...

Note to all the spandrel suppliers who lurk on this board: I'm just kidding around. No offense. Please don't spandrel my house in retaliation.

Oh, hey, look what I stumbled across.  A picture from August 9th.  I wonder what it's of, let me just hold the negative up to the light here.. oh, it's of those new buildings on Johnson!

 

Look at all those temporary panels, and still some on the shorter building! What's up with that?  What a weird way to build.  I saw how they installed the glass after the fact - very laborious procedure involving a window washing type platform.

overheard something about a couple units on the finishes

 

the walls, floors, ceilings, cabinetry and fixtures are not done right at the first time and a lot of coverups and not done correctly either.

That would seem to be a fairly comprehensive list of errors.

If the "walls" are not done right the first time, does that mean that the drywall wasn't hung correctly?  In terms of ceilings: was there a type of finishing that was promised to the buyers that didn't get applied correctly?    Were the kitchen and washroom cabinets somehow installed incorrectly? 

 

Maybe the reports of errors are just hearsay/rumour... ?

Yes, it can be difficult to judge the finishings based on hearsay. Some purchasers are so particular, so demanding that something 95% of purchasers wouldn't even notice or care to have corrected, they'll be quite upset over.

finishings should have standards in my opinion. 

 

Good luck with the 5%~

Oh I’m sure there’s a finishing touch-up in just about every condo suite of every building, but some folks are over the top and expect total perfection or find issue with the smallest things.
