Regrettably, condo buildings of this magnitude, especially those located in the centre of the city, are a place for the building management companies to have a feast! 800 units means no control whatsoever by the individual owners over how the condo fees will be spent and how efficiently the building will be managed. That's a sad reality, at least in Montreal. I am a condo owner in Montreal and am very familiar with what happens when a new condo building is built, especially if the builder keeps or is stuck with a majority share of the condo units. The builder will then manage or hire building management companies that it is affiliated with, practically appoint the condo Board members and you can fill in the blanks yourself about what results from this bad combination. It is disappointing that there is no City or governmental oversight on this common reality in the new condo buildings in Montreal. Condos could be wonderful solutions to urban sprawl if they could be managed by impartial condo management companies after the completion of the construction. So, my advice: ask a lot of questions before you buy a condo in any new construction project.
