Yes, if I lived there I would be asking the Board what is going on. Clearly the Board are in the middle as the problems all seem to be due to construction problems and I bet the developer and their insurance company are busy (or trying to pretend that all is well!).This building just can't get a break. I hope for the residents sake that they get their windows cleaned before 2030.
I wonder if there is any long-term damage tied to never washing your windows? The dirt build-up must be insane as this building has NEVER had their windows cleaned – so, 7 years running?
Not cleaning glass can indeed cause problems.I doubt that not cleaning windows is going to cause problems (unpleasant though it may be for residents) but the lack of the MAU also means nobody has looked at the exterior of the building up close since construction - minor problems may well be becoming major due to this lack of the ability to inspect and fix.
Just curious: what do you think the building must do then? Shut down and move the residents so that the lane occupied by the generator can be freed. There are plenty of closed lanes in the city so that construction workers can park their trucks. Why are going after L Tower and its residents? What pleasure does that give you?The generator is still blocking The Esplanade so I nudged 311. VERY speedy response reading:
"Thank you for contacting 311 Toronto.
I have contacted the Supervisor of Right-of-Way Management, Candice Martins, requesting we be advised what the next step here will be according to the findings of the Transportation Standards Officer that was assigned to attend.
We'll be in touch as soon as we hear back.
You are being silly. I suggest they park the generator on the adjacent parking spaces behind the Meridian Hall or even on the sidewalk. Having it parked where it is on the street blocks a lane and causes HUGE traffic jams - esp. in pm rush hour. Even I, as a cyclist, can feel some pity for motorists and the L-Tower or, more likely, the developer and their insurers are taking FAR too long to fix this. Blocking a lane (with NO PERMIT) may be acceptable in an emergency, after 8 months it is simply sloppy!Just curious: what do you think the building must do then?
