There have been walk-throughs in the Tower. I've done walk-throughs with clients on the 7th and 8th floors, but not with clients on the 14th.

Being on the ground floor I would have expected those units to be the first completed?

Usually they put a rush on a couple of prime upper floor suites expressly for display suite purposes. The rest of the floor could be a disaster zone but those two suites will be flawlessly staged.

Not sure if that applies here as the building is sold out.

Doors to the small tower are wide open and a moving van filled with household goods is being unloaded. There were worker trucks parked across the parkade ramp so not sure if it is open yet.

No. Not us. We close (complete) Friday and take possession (key) Saturday. So Saturday would be our earliest day to move in. Are you moving in there some time?

Im surprised no units are up for sale on MLS yet. @Brownhorsey123 did you get moved in yesterday? If so what are your initial thoughts?

They are only completing/moving in the 5-story so far so not much of an opportunity for anyone to go on MLS yet. I have two units coming up for sale so far so my guess is there will be probably 12 +/- units listed between completion and summer. I don't think we will see 10 on the market at the same time as units will sell as new ones come up but there will be listing for sure.

Will be interesting what sort of prices they fetch. I spoke to one lady out front who is also a realtor and she said people want unrealistic prices and she had to crush some dreams but in this crazy market you just never really know.

Partially moved into Terrace condo unit. Love it. The unit, building and parking areas are very well finished, not tacky, with high end fixtures. Bosa is looking after us well to make sure move in is smooth.

So "technically" is the tower still under construction, as in crews are finalizing work on the building, or is everything complete pending walk-throughs and more managerial types of activities?

There are still crews working on some of the tower units. Finish work I would assume (hope), but I saw crews working on the tower as recently as this morning.

Does anyone know the status of the Tower rooftop? It was framed about four months ago but does not appear to be completed.

I've had quite a few people phone me with Encore units and when I've given my opinion on value they've decided to rent them out. Expectations are super high and people are trying to sell me on the building/development and I am like....."no, I get it, I bought two units @ Encore and its a great development but I don't think you are going to get $1,000 a foot for your non-view unit."

Not in it to make money. It was a lifestyle decision.
