"Great condo"

Great building to live in with great neighbors and a thriving community. I would recommend this building to anyone. On of the first to go up in the east village, rivertwin has an excellent location. Minutes from transit, downtown, and city parks. With an abundance of festivals in the summer there is always something going on and all are conveniently located.

"New Management Company
Saves Rivertwin"

This building suffered under poor management during the flood, and the management got progressively worse after the flood. The building has now switched management companies to a much more reliable one. The location is fantastic, condo fees are decent, and we have a deal with Telus where our reserve fund gets something to the tune of $35,000 a year. I've never had a special assessment in 5 years, and that includes during and after the flood.

It is now managed by keystone grey, who are total shit. The elevator has been broken for 4 years and the interior and exterior look like total garbage.

"Worst Managed Condo in
Calgary"

It took one year after the flood to get the ONLY elevator working. Now it operates very intermittently. This was the LAST building in the city to get a working elevator. The property manager was blaming it on the lack of inspectors until the province got wind of it and forced a retraction. The refurbishment from the flood has been a gong show. It has taken over 1 month just to lay carpet in the common areas. The "new" garage door failed within a week barricading all the cars in the parkade. Everything is done on the cheap and will turn the place back into a slum within 24 months. The noise from the railyard is incredible at night. CP assembles their trains overnight and the noise is unbelievable. Do not buy a condo in ths building. You risk flooding and a very ineffective condo board coupled with a management company that is well below the standard would suggest that you look elsewhere. A very, very poor investment. This is also a wood frame building, not concrete.

This review was written by a tenant who had no knowledge of what was going on. He called the city and misrepresented himself as the owner. He also harassed and threatened me and was generally unstable (I had a police officer escort me to deliver an eviction notice for unpaid rent because I was so afraid of him). I'm still getting his mail a year after he moved out, and I received several "PAST DUE" and "UNPAID" notices in his name, showing that he is a very irresponsible person (what kind of adult cannot even handle cancelling services or setting up mail forwarding...?)

"2013 Flood"

I am currently living in this condo when the 2013 flood had happened. As you know this disaster was very wide spread and the city did a good job of managing this disaster. We were evacuated from the building on the 20th of june 2013 and are still not back in (july 2). The grid power was restored on June 29th but no information on the condo and re-entry was provided. The condo board did not do anything to try to pump out the parkade or check on the status until the 28th ish. Instead of getting a contractor to pump the parkade like every other company in the city they waited for it to drain naturally, costing days of time. The electrical contractor looked at the box on the 28th and said that it had to be repaired, but did not order anything still (july 2), instead of getting someone on the problem 24/7 as they should as everyone CANT GET HOME, they only started to do work again on the Tuesday after the long weekend. This is ridiculous, we have been out for longer than anyone else i know, and they are sidelining the problem. The building manager after being phoned by another tenants responded to a question by laughing and stating" you probably know more about what is going on than i do" The building is nice, its clean, and in a good area, BUT the condo board and the BUILDING MANAGER TIM ALAN has done nothing to try to help get the tenants back into the building, or provide us with reasonable information on the crisis. The condo board (ACMS) has done nothing
