Charlie West (Charles & Gaukel Redevelopment) | 31 fl | Proposed
#91
The definition of a "good board" varies a lot when you are living there vs renting it out. When you live there, you care about whether the lot has needles hidden in feet-high weeds, whether doors don't close or lock and homeless people sleep in the building. When you rent our your place, you care about how cheap your fixed costs (condo fees) are, and that you are able to attract and maintain the rent-paying tenant you desire. These two things don't always align, as I've very easily experienced.

Maybe not exactly, but they are not opposing goals, either. Owners also care about condo fees, and tenants also prefer a well-maintained building. A well-run building should be able to satisfy both, for the most part.

Total unit count is 245 and apparently they've held back two podium floors and two full tower floors probably for an event happening in July.

Did anyone wind up getting the price list for this? And did that July sales event happen?

Curious how close to sold out this is.

Some soil drilling going on on the property today. I'm assuming the site will need soil rehabilitation due to the garage?

I was looking at their web site and they indicate that Charlie West will be 26 storeys, not 25 as in the header for this thread. 

Quote:With its impressive height reaching 26 storeys and modern, all glass building design, Charlie West will create a sleek silhouette rising above Downtown Kitchener.

Sure, I'll update that.

I got a price list for it just the other day, so I don't think it is sold out.

Where did it say it was sold out? 
If you don't mind me asking

According to Momentum's website the public launch date is Dec 7, 2017, so I am assuming that some percentage of the units will be made available at that time.

I hear they might be adding more floors to the building due to high demand.
