Now that all of our mechanical and electrical contribution is complete throughout the building, we have been able to determine the number of storage rooms available for purchase. The price will be $15,000 per room.

1 room available on the 2nd floor
2 rooms available on the 3rd floor
3 rooms available on the 4th floor
2 rooms available on the PH floor

Much like a parking stall, after purchased, the storage rooms will be assigned to a unit’s title with an exclusive use agreement. The storage rooms can be sold or transferred accordingly. They will have a private entrance with a separate lock. Rooms are approximately 88 sq/ft with a 9 or 10ft ceiling height (dependent on floor). With only 8 units available, we are not limiting rooms to be purchased by residents on their floor.

We have received many inquiries regarding possession dates. We meet weekly with all trades to determine site schedules and ultimately the completion of each trade’s contribution. Our latest update with our trades indicates possession dates will commence in the month of August 2019. Residents will be moving in floor by floor, beginning with the 2nd and moving up. We can accommodate a maximum of 2 move-ins per day. A deficiency walkthrough of your unit will be scheduled approximately 3 weeks prior to possession. During the walkthrough we will identify any deficiency’s in your unit. Our goal is to have the majority of the deficiencies repaired prior to your move in date.

Sincerely,

Myles Kraut

We would like to remind you one final time. Under no circumstance can any owner go on site without permission from Karma.This puts us at risk of the entire site being shut down for violating safety practices.

139 Tuxedo Update

Dear Future Residents,

Welcome to your latest update for 139 Tuxedo. We are extremely happy with the progress we have made in November as December is typically a short month due to the holiday season.  We currently have approximately 60 work people working diligently on the interior of the building. The parapet walls are now in place with the roof insulation and membrane 50% complete. We have successfully enclosed the building with 100% of the windows installed. Temporary heat has been implemented on the 2nd and 3rd floor to keep everyone on site warm and allow productivity to keep pace. Our framers have completed the 4th floor and are 50% done the PH. The electrical contribution on the 2nd floor is complete and is ready for our January 2019 inspection. The 3rd floor is 95% and 4th floor is 20% complete. The plumbing contribution is also finished on the 2nd floor and ready for our January 2019 inspection. The 3rd floor is 90% and the 4th floor is 20% complete.

We have sent out the 4th floor framing, electrical and plumbing charges and ask that everyone reviews and mails or drops off payment to the Karma office. The PH is still under review and will be sent out in the new year.

It has come to our attention that a number of owners have been stopped while attempting to go on site to view their unit. Under no circumstance can any owner go on site without permission from Karma.This put us at risk of the entire site being shut down for violating safety practices. More importantly the danger of those going on site without the proper equipment putting themselves at risk of getting hurt. Again, no owner is allowed on site without the accompaniment of a Karma employee.

We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and new year.

Sincerely,

Dear Future Residents,

Welcome to your latest update for 139 Tuxedo. We are quite happy with the progress that has been made this month. I am pleased to inform you that the 2ndfloor concrete is now 100% complete. The 3rdfloor concrete is now 50% complete and we anticipation moving onto the 4thfloor by month end. The 3rdfloor walls are prepped and have begun to be erected.  We have prepped the 1stsection of the parkade for a concrete pour and will be completed by mid August. The balance of the parkade will be completed by month end. Electrical is 50% complete in the parkade. Plumbing in the parkade is now 100% complete with work set to commence on the 2ndfloor by month end.

We have completed all 2ndand 3rdfloor final reviews and are currently underway with the 4thfloor units. We would like to remind everyone again to please bring all contracts, invoices and documents relating to your unit and upgrades to ensure all details are documented during your review. We expect to complete all 4thfloor reviews and the 50% of PH units by the end of August.

We are currently working on all 2ndand 3rdfloor changes that have been made to electrical, plumbing or framing in order to identify any final costs associated with those upgrades. Now having met with the electricians, plumbers and framers, we have noted all changes and are working to provide final quotes associated with your changes. Once the 4thand PH final reviews are complete, we will meet with the electricians, plumbers and framers again to go through all remaining changes and work to provide the remaining quotes. We ask and appreciate your patience, as our goal is to mitigate the risk of any errors and will need some time after our meetings to provide these final quotes.

BA Robinson has begun to contact everyone to collect overages for any upgrades made. Due the significant backlog of orders with the manufacturers, we are placing our final order with BA Robinson at the end of August. For those who have made any changes with BA Robinson, please contact them as soon as possible to provide payment.

We would like to thank everyone who has finalized all changes prior to their final review thus far. A few 4thfloor and PH units are still working to finalize their selections, we would like to remind you that this is the last opportunity to complete your changes. Failure to do so will revert any desired changes to the standard package from that supplier.

Sincerely,

Myles Kraut

We are currently undergoing our final review meetings with each unit. The 2ndfloor unit reviews are now complete and we have met with approximately 50% of the 3rdfloor units. The 3rdfloor meetings should be scheduled and completed in the next 2 weeks. We would like to remind everyone to please bring all contracts, invoices and documents relating to your unit and upgrades to ensure all details are documented during your review.

We have received the majority of sign offs from Interior Illusions and from our independent suppliers. However, there are still a few units that are outstanding. We ask everyone who is still working to wrap up the last few items to do so as soon as possible. If you are unable to sign off by your final review, we will be unable to implement those changes and will revert back to the standard package. As mentioned last month, we will be confirming any changes that have been made to electrical, plumbing or framing in order to identify any final costs associated with those upgrades.

For those who have not contacted Michelle or our suppliers thus far, your unit will be provided with the finishing materials found in our presentation centre.

We will begin contacting each of you next week to setup your final review meeting. We will begin with the 2nd floor and continue meetings with the 3rd, 4th and PH floors respectively.
