    Marriott: don't they care?

    For more than a year and a half now myself and millions of people have had to look at this: (the sign, not the ugly mechanical box) My houseguests are always shocked that the Marriott brand would be treated so horribly. What possible excuse can this Marriott at Yonge and Bloor in...

    Earthquakes 2010 and 2011!

    Did I just imagine that? Up high atop Casa we were just swaying quite noticeably... felt like the building was rubber for about 10-15 seconds.
  4. casaguy Is this BS?

    Got a letter in the mail today from "Canadian Condo Rebates". Never heard of them. They are writing to me "in regard to your condominium rebate eligibility." Sounds like some sort of phishing scam. Especially when you go to the website Anyone know anything about this?

    Who lives in Manulife Centre Apartments?

    I understand there are more than 800 pricey apartments in the Manulife Centre tower at 44 Charles St. W. I've never known anyone who's lived there and I'm curious... who does? Are these rich kids attending U of T? Relocated workers whose company is paying the rent? Life long renters? Just...

    Mobilia Furniture

    Obviously some employee who doesn't speak english very well keeps signing up with a new name to pretend to speak for Mobilia. No one is fooled. It just makes Mobilia look even more pathetic.

    Casa Condos (Cresford Developments) - Real Estate -

    You are correct. This is a big flaw. If I leave for the day during a heatwave, normally I would want to turn up the thermostat so that the AC doesn't come back on until the temperature rises to that setting. However, if you turn up the temperature too high the HEATER KICKS ON to bring your...

    Toronto Casa | 147.52m | 46s | Cresford | a—A

    It is a bit of a work-out (but great exercise). You're lucky enough to be able to easily reach all of your glass without any effort so you never have to deal with waiting for management to come and wash your windows. I usually do all of mine (a corner unit) every 6-8 weeks or so. I usually split...

    Such a sad and sorry finish to this towering beige beast. They could have given the city an iconic flourish at Yonge and Bloor but instead are giving the citizens the finger with this rushed mess of mediocrity for a crown.

    Idiotic Motorcyclists

    There have been other motorcycle accidents that have made headlines but this one I thought worthy of posting as the idiotic driver thought it was a good idea to pass a vehicle on Rosedale Valley Road (!) while someone was clinging to his back. I don't think I need to try much at all to prove...

    Toronto The Uptown Residences | ?m | 48s | Pemberton | Burka

    True most buyers couldn't care less, but it is a pretty big let down after being teased for years with this sexy render that highlights the roof element. I don't think the fins are going to be an add-on. What's there now looks pretty finished. large pic is about 2MB:

    Cresford Hell pls help!

    Wow. Just wow. What a phenomenal failure on the part of the Cresford Customer "Care" office. How is this allowed to happen? How is this even legal? And where does Cresford hire these people from: the Devry School of Bullshit Artists? Why wasn't this taken care of right away? ... and why...

    fmcristiano, I'm afraid that the real nightmare for you (and other new owners) begins now. You will be waiting months and months and months and will be told BS stories over and over and over again. They will never call you when they say they will. They will never follow up on problems...
