"Ineffective strata, poor
management, good location"

The only thing this building has going for it is its location. Other than that, the strata manager (First Service / formerly Crosby) is non-responsive and does not follow up effectively regarding quality of life issues. The strata council itself is not a lot of help and has impossible standards for dealing with noise issues - it is easier convict someone for murder than have this council find someone responsible for a noise issue. The only effective member of the strata council is the treasurer, who knows his money management and has kept the strata fees low. Sadly, the otherwise ineffective management of the building has resulted in an out of control party atmosphere wit a high turnover and low (less than 30%) owner occupancy rate. Frequent security issues in the parkade, garbage area, and mail room. You can do much better.

"Love building and
location"

Although not in Yaletown, I like this location better because it is closer to the main shopping area of downtown. The condo is decent as well. On the negative side, I believe there are many renters in the building.
