How realistic is the August expected occupancy date? The building has been going up nicely without any delays since they set that date. However I recall Clear Spirit (a similar sized project) had reached it's full height in the summer of 07 and didn't occupy until August 08. Casa probably won't top off until Feb March?
Also, I know the ARC @ Bayview & Sheppard is scheduled for Feb 09 and that's maybe 15 floors I'm guessing, has probably 1 or 2 floors to go and the glass is practically finished on most of it.
CASA along with Children's Aid, is auctioning off a unit in CASA. More details can be found at http://www.cafdn.org/cresfordcondo.aspx. A couple of things I found interesting is that they say no parking is available and there is a waiting list for lockers.
So far it's what I was expecting and hoping for although it appears the glass does not run uninterrupted from floor to ceiling. And what's with the tiny window within the pane that looks like it's for venting smoke? Is that needed when there are sliding glass doors?
Got back from that all you can eat japanese restaurant which is beside Casa and the Sanctuary (this was about 2 weeks ago)... some bum wearing a dog mask (yes a halloween dog mask) was standing outside waving a frying pan in one hand and a hat in another, trying to get some money from the people walking around and the cars on that road.
Not sure what else to say about 'solutions' to this matter, -just stating what happaned.
Oh, and I dont recommend that AYCE place either... you definately get what you pay for ($11 lunch).
