During the winter season staff removes snow from the front entrance as well as mats in the lobby to protect the floors and reduce the amount of snow and salt that is tracked into the building and our units. To avoid damage to the lobby area, you must bring bicycles into the building through garage entrances and not through the lobby, unless your locker is located on the ground floor level of phases 1 or 2. This helps save refurbishment expenses.
While our cleaners do their utmost to keep the hallways and corridors clean, it is important that we all try to help - particularly by wiping boots and shoes clean before entering the building. Mats, boots and other items must not be left in the hallway outside your unit. Such items will be removed. There are several reasons for this including:
- Items are a tripping hazard including obstructing residents' ability to safely evacuating the building during a fire.
- Items in the hallways look untidy and degrade the image of our building.
- As a Condo we are together liable for any damages caused because of negligence in enforcing this rule. Because of this costly liability, if residents fail to remove such items after a warning the Property Manager will do so.
All stairwells lead to street level for fire safety. Look for red/lit EXIT signs and explore several alternative exits.
phase 3 stairwells
Stairwell M (West) provides an exit from the garage levels up to Cumberland street level. For fire safety reasons one cannot exit from the stairwell into the garages. Stairwell N (East) provides an exit from the garage levels out/up to George street level and from the 2nd floor amenity area down to George street level. For fire safety reasons one cannot exit from the stairwell into the garages. Stairwells K & L are located in the centre of the building. These provide access to all floors and Cumberland street level.
