Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Woodside Terraces | 6 fl | U/C
Has the extension been approved?

The floor plans are a bit different - tiny LRs, but bedrooms that seem larger than a lot of new construction.
The current building permits are only for the interior renovations.

One-bedroom units are priced in the low $1200s/month, with two-bedroom units at $1375/month.  Pricing seems reasonable, about 15% below Trio on Belmont for a 2BR unit in spite of being closer to downtown.

Utilities appear to be the tenant responsibility:

"Water, heat and hydro are sub-metered to promote smart energy consumption"

Not sure how that compares to the Trio rents noted above if utilities are in or separate.
Trio includes water and heat; electricity not included (I think Trio, like this one, has individual AC units so electricity will be the biggest cost).
Trio also has in-suite laundry, which is a pretty major selling point to some people (me included).
Woodside does not, since it is apparently really expensive to retrofit into a building that wasn't built for it.
Do you know what laundry facilities it does have?

A building I lived in in California had a laundry room on each floor. This seemed to be a really good trade off with in suite vs basement. Saving the elevator trip was a really big deal, and sharing the machines with only a few other people on your floor meant that it was usually free. Plus you still had the advantage of being able to do two loads at once. But I've never seen a similar configuration here before.
