Hello!

Does anyone have any advice / cautions / comments on living in this building, or renting an apartment in it?

I appreciate your input.

Thank you.

Loved my time at the Northumberland (just moved out last week as we begin our transition to the snowbird life)!!

For the most part, the other residents are quite friendly. The maintenance staff are great also! Loved the wash bay in the garage ... fantastic amenity in the winter time. The central air and rooftop deck/kitchen were much appreciated during the summer months

Hard to go wrong renting here. Just be very aware of the provisions of the lease ... this isn't your typical apartment building, it is a condominium with fairly strict rules defined by the condo owners. The lease is written such that they can easily terminate your lease if you have a disregard for those rules.

And of course, because they are condos, they are always up for sale and your lease could be terminated (with some notice) if a buyer is found for the unit you are in. But I think that is a risk worth taking :-)

What exactly does "for the most part , the other residents are quite friendly" mean?

Pretty much what it says :?

Just like in any neighbourhood, you are going to have a mix people who are friendly, people who are indifferent or people who are unfriendly. Different neighbourhoods will have varying numbers of each type. The Northumberland has a nice preponderance of the first type :)

In all honesty, I wasn't quite sure what you meant and it was like you were speaking metaphorically.

Fortunately, the OP had no problem understanding what it meant :D
