Where is the gym going to be located in this building? Is it going to be full sized? (more then just a treadmill, yoga mat, and small dumbbells)

As best as I know, there isn't going to be any gym. There is going to be sauna up on the roof but that is all.

I remember they talked about a gym in the sales pitch but I don’t know details.
But now that I’m looking on the website it doesn’t say anything about it...

This seems like a quality project, but progress does seem slow.

Very slow indeed. Apparently the glazing is supposed to start being delivered later this week (only a month later than promised in June/July).

Many workers on site here now when I walked the property. I could care less when they finish just do a good job.

Presumably, you mean you couldn't care less (a common grammatical mistake). So you'd be OK with this project not being completed for 5 years?

I guess we can’t be surprised by the slow progress considering the GC is the developers son (tough to get mad/fire/sue). Word on the street is they are still saying 2019 completion. I had a client buy in here and had to tell her to be prepared to keep renting until spring but probably summer.

I just advised a clients to not purchase at west bay due to unrealistic completion timelines they have proven at the wade

Any progress on window installation yet?

Also my client was wondering if weed plants will be allowed within your garden plot on the roof. Nothing found in disclosure docs ( was still illegal back then) so guess this will be a strata issue when formed?

Would be pretty cool to have a professional arborist manage your weed plants I must say..

Yes, it's likely to be. I would imagine the strata will prohibit the growing of anything like pot, 'shrooms,' etc.

If it is legal to grow pot how could the strata ban it?

 

It is no different than growing roses or tomatoes.

It's also legal to have vertical blinds, but stratas can ban them.

But that's for a cohesive look for the building, not quite the same thing.

I think the general point he was trying to make was that stratas can ban/regulate a great many things that are otherwise legal, and for a myriad of reasons. The fact that weed is legal doesn't really have much bearing. We would basically have to examine each of the strata's reasons for not allowing weed and then dispute/argue those reasons.

you can’t grow your pot where it can been seen by the public or from any adjacent property even. so that would probably rule it out at communal or side by side gardens.

Publicly accessible is the key phrase, I believe. So if you can see the offending plant from, say, the library, then that's a no no. But if you can see it from your bedroom window, then it's OK (so long as you don't consider your bedroom a publicly accessible place). The regulation goes further to say that visibility has to be unaided, except eyeglasses, i.e. no binos or drones or elaborate mirror set-ups.

Stratas are also allowed to prohibit tobacco products like cigarettes and cigars, and these products have been legal for a very long time...
