    There wasn't much west of 103 Street. With the proposed development boundaries in the Metro Edmonton Region, I think we'll see more infill and residential towers.

    Would have preferred black or grey... alas.

    The HA zone says one thing, planners say another, DOs say another and the interpretation is unclear.

    I think that had to do with visible sight lines, and they had no choice as it would have devalued the rest of the tower
    Looks fantastic though.

    Hopefully their next tower on 106 along with Edgar's towers will enhance that view quite a bit.

    Sorry, which one is their potential next tower?

    Also regarding this tower, is there a rough ETA for this one to be completed and open?

    How else are you supposed to know if your neighbor is eating properly? Sit out there and watch them cook, agreed not something I would be interested in.

    I was wondering how long til the show suites would be open, I could see them installing appliances on the lower floors for a few weeks now.

    Obviously, but that is a clear design flaw as neighbors can see right in to the living area. Well atleast its not in to the bedroom or bathroom. You don't see that on the Ultima, my suite extends out of the main building and my neighbors balconies flank me on both sides and I have regular walls facing both.

    I knew this right off the bat, before settling with a C unit in Encore. The B and A units at that junction is just plain awkward. At night, the person on the A unit balcony can peer into most of the B unit quite easily (B is whats pictured). The floor plans were already out during pre-sale and it was definitely something I had noticed. The one thing with the C that still bugs me, is how one window in the B units main bedroom, can easily see C units balcony. I might put up some decent sized faux trees (if I'm allowed) for a little privacy.

    I did security guard work in a south side hotel in the late 1990's near a Wendy's. The hotel had I think maybe a dozen floors. Adjacent to the hotel looked like a condo building. I remember looking out the large hallway glass windows to the roof of the building bellow also glass. I was able to see right into this guys living room. We made eye contact with each other. Awkward. I moved on after that of course. Cant recall the name of the hotel or area. Began with an E.

    Adjacent buildings is one thing, like Legends and Sky residences are fairly close as well as Icons and foxes. But to have some one a couple feet from your kitchen window is a whole nother level.

    This is not good. Resident in B will spend most of their time in their main bedroom peering into C to the north, because they'd rather not have their lives studied by the resident to the south with the balcony view of their entire unit.

    I mean, to be fair those in a B unit will have to stand right in the corner of their bedroom to view the C unit balcony. As well, most of Edmonton that faces C unit can see that balcony too. It's a highrise, not sure how much privacy one expects when standing on an exposed exterior ledge.

    It's very unlikely that anyone will be standing deep in the corner window for periods longer than a minute. And even if someone is standing in the corner looking into the living room of the other unit you'd have to question that. Regardless the line of sight is quite indirect. Spitting hairs me says.

    Apparently there is an invention called curtains or blinds that might be quite helpful for Resident B. They open and can also be closed if wanted, apparently not just only for decorative purposes.

    Balconies are outside spaces and as such often only semi private. I guess in this case you might get to know your next door neighbours well, often in high rises it is people across the street who can see your balcony and potentially into your unit.

    As the original post was noting and RonRon alludes to, the real problematic "unintentional consequence" of the design is the panoramic view of the B dining and kitchen areas from the A balcony.

    That clever invention, blinds, is definitely available but my guess is that the buyer of a unit in a relatively "all glass" window-wall tower didn't make that choice so they could gaze at the inside of a room full of blinds !

    Poor attention to architectural detail - could have been mitigated by the use of a pre-designed screening on the north ends of the A balconies (similar to the "wing wall" on the north end of the C unit balconies - but useful in a practical sense, rather than in what I believe is a purely "image" oriented tack-on) - but it doesn't appear the architect or developer looked ahead that far...

    Good blinds ain't cheap either & the condo bylaws may have some stipulations.

    For some orientations, maybe. I wouldn’t be able to watch tv or use my computers during daylight hours. I’ve got a corner suite with lots of glass, so I get direct sunlight for a significant portion of the day.

    It was in my budget as part of my moving costs. It wasn't a financial hardship & now I have complete light & privacy control & a modicum of insulation in my corner condo thanks to high-quality blinds with a lifetime warranty & that raise the value of my home. Zero regrets in not cutting corners.

    Agreed. Good blinds cost money and will last. Well worth the investment.

    Ya me thinks that I might permanently keep a blind up in that kitchen window! The balcony above it can also see into the unit. It is a little weird but I don’t dislike upon further viewing of this photo!

    The people below can also see up. That's why I made sure I got blinds that open from both sides.

    Of course the photo emphasizes the kitchen window due to the angle it shows but remember that the dining table they show will be virtually the same situation - a little awkward during a quiet dinner to be making eye contact with the next door neighbor standing at their barbeque... again, why buy a "all window-wall" kind of unit just to have to, as you say "... permanently keep a blind up in that... window" ?

    Screening of some sort should have been thought of and designed-in... that's what good architects do.

    Yup good point. I like the building but because of the neighbors view inside I’d likely buy elsewhere. They should have just left the kitchen window bricked up. There’s still plenty of window light to be had in the living room and dining area.

    Still haven't seen a building with plans for a 2+Den I'd trade for from my corner unit @ Uptown. It's not perfect (not enough storage), but there's very little wasted or unusable space & nobody can see into any of it.

    That balcony that can look into the B unit's kitchen and dining area, is mirrored on the other end of that A unit. It's going to be awkward for everyone in A and both East and West B units, lol

    ^i'd still buy one because i like the building and the inside design....but as mentioned i'd keep a permanent blind on the kitchen window.

    Very busy open house today, just a few random units unspoken for. Good pricing - 5th floor 973 sq ft unit for sale for $427k. Finishing level is what I expected, the views are great, very urban. Great layouts.

    Anybody have photos from the open house to share? I was told Encore's social media page will update with photos in the coming days, but I want them to see them now!

    I took a few shots but lots of people, none of them are great. I will share when I can.

    I know this was briefly talked about earlier in the thread, but at the open house I heard someone also briefly mention how this is likely to be one of the last condos built in DT with this style balconies due to a change in code. What’s the story on that?

    Thermal transfer/delta between from the slab connection/protrusion. Very inefficient.

    ^^Yes, they don't allow this thermal bridging in Europe, and there's many systems available off the shelf to address it.

    I know a friend that faces north in Ulitma that during a cold winters day can put a bowl of water close to the floor in the balcony and it will freeze.

    There's a new energy code coming in to force that's more stringent. It's the second one, the other one came in to force a year or two ago (the one that's in force now is 2011, and I believe the one coming in to force is 2017). Basically anything that doesn't already have a development permit or building permit as of right now will have to adhere to the newest code. There'll be a few more towers yet that don't isolate the balconies, but not many.

    Nice! Love the size of the windows. The A unit views will be amazing higher up.

    ^Yes, was hard to get a sense of the south views from the 5th floor, but they were taking some folks up higher to get a sense.

    How big is that suite? It gives you an indication how many people one could 'reasonably' entertain. Windows are great. This is a great building.

    Nice looking suite. Needs to be a bit more space between the living room floor and the windows for whe using the vacuum cleaner. With no baseboards where does the heat come from?

    ^ I'm going to love that angle even more when the Shift+Westrich (106 st) fill that gap in the middle.. and of course when 102 ave gets full completed with low floor trains whizzing by.
