Will never buy from this builder *EVER* again. Will recommend against it to anyone I meet. What a nightmare it was to wait for a condo to be built with years of delays. The entire project is shoddy and used the cheapest labour and construction materials. The paint that I paid extra for was spelled out as latex in the contract however it was a powder based paint. The finishes were not fulfilled (frameless mirror closet doors however the top frame was metal -- bent out of shape as well instead of mirrors like in the showroom for upgrades). Everything delivered was poor. The paneling on the outside rattles and are misaligned. The carpeting was laid over cement in the hallways, and the cement was not smooth. Parking ramp is so narrow that two vehicles simultaneously passing in both directions are a huge danger. I had to offload this unit as I could not live in it for even weeks. Pre-occupancy was a year before title transfer. Noisy elevators in this building too that run 24/7 with mostly careless tenants. Sales promised it would be mostly owned units. Sales also promised a beam would not run down the waterfront view from the unit. Well it did in the worst spot obstructing the view and light from the living room. What a mistake it was to purchase this unit preconstruction. Empire is following in the footsteps of most other builders with reputation dwindling.
