    The Guardian seems like it's mostly asian/chinese investors buying in to rent out or flip. I wasn't impressed by the finishes either.
    I really liked Keynote. The finishes are very nice but you definitely pay for the quality. They have a more conventional floorplan I was looking at. The acoustic just felt too cramped for me. Barely enough space for a dinner table. Also, with phase 2 up, the NE view from the show suite is completely obstructed and if you look west they have their office building. Feels like youre in a well. I checked out the underground parking when I was visiting the sales center in phase 1, and its niiice. Painted concrete, large parking stalls and very well lit. Felt like the new chinook mall ug parking.
    I liked Alura as well. A 6th floor 873sqft 2 bed 2 bath with all the upgrades was just under 400 when I was looking (Feb). But there were no decent views left and they had just made a price increase.
    The whole victoria park area is undergoing a lot of major projects and will be a vibrant area in the future.

    Thanks Max! I'm pretty pumped, although I had to sacrifice the S4 for the down payment... Although its a small sacrifice in the grand scheme of things!

    That is a very good question, what floor did you end up getting? I know I got a few newsletters mentioning that they're on track for spring posessions since they're capped off and the windows are installed (majority of them, anyway)

    12th ave infront of Sunterra, or 11th ave. (Still gotta pay on Saturdays until 6pm). During the weekdays I could see it being a pain to pay for parking. Maybe they'll put in guest parking later? So far it doesn't seem to conflict with my free social time since my guests usually come over after 6pm.

    I'm curious, how many floors up do you have to be before traffic noise isn't noticable and views are nice? ~15?

    And more importantly, how noise proofed are these new developments? I'm in an old ~70's apartment complex now and I hate it. The buildings silent (all 1 bedroom recluses I guess), but literally every time I have a buddy come in from out of town and we come back around 3-4am, we get reported for simply conversing, whether in the unit with windows closed, or on the balcony (god forbid we turn on some music or a movie/video game). I want a place where we can stay up as late as we want and even have music playing without pissing off the neighbors, but don't know if thats even possible in highrises...

    anyone take a look at alura a few blocks down? looks like only 2 bedrooms left but price tag i think was $350k taxed in for 8th floor, fees are $385/month. sounds pretty reasonable in my opinion. however in comparison to keynotes the quality and build looks much cheaper. Any thoughts on alura??


    BTW, is phase 2 keynotes still for sale?? or they all gone now?

    There is a new complex that is slated for development in Inglewood within the next couple months. Corner of 9th ave and 13st se on the North side of the street. I had to go have a peek at the drawings for it the other day and it looks pretty decent.

    45 residential units, 7 retail bays on the bottom and a restaurant space beside the retail.

    Just something to keep in mind.

    Last newsletter I got said they're at 60% sold, I did happen to check out the Alura tower, didn't really like it. Although the price...that is pretty good for a 2 bedroom taxes in.

    ^ Not really. No townhouses, just apartment style condos on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor, retail on main, each unit has a balcony and then there is a common rooftop terrace on the top of the 4th floor. Parking is underground

    They have nice layouts and decent finishes but definitely not as nice as Keynote or Calla.

    I'm still considering the podium 2 bedroom 2 bath, unless they sold it recently: 1020sqft. with kitchen upgrades and tax in for 377k.

    Not liking the second floor but do like that big open space layout and location.
