Spotlight on: Tower 180 Condominiums
Located at 180 Beliveau Rd , near Dakota St and Bishop Grandin Blvd, we find Tower 180 Condos, an apartment conversion by A&S Homes.
Year Built: 1970 – Fully Updated by A&S Homes in 2014
The building has a total of 79 condo units, on 8 floors. There are 1 BR units at about 740 sq ft, and 2 BR units at around 1,040 sq ft.
Just the usual condo-restrictions, such as “No Laundry to be hung from the balcony” etc. 1 Pet is allowed, so long as it doesn’t pose a nuisance to other owners. Owners are allowed to rent out their suites, however must assure that their tenants abide by all rules.
Gross Property Taxes range between approx. $2100.00 (gross) per unit for the 1 BR condos, to about $2,500 (gross) for the 2 BR units.
Condo fees range between $325 and $440 per month, which includes snow removal, property maintenance, water and management fees, and electricity (heat). These fees sometimes give Condos a ‘bad rap’… here is a realistic comparison of condo fees to ‘normal’ house ownership expenses.
Laundry and Parking
All units at 180 Beliveau Rd have their own in-suite laundry. Units come with either outdoor parking or the more sought after underground parking spot.
Close to Bishop Grandin and the St Vital Shopping Centre. Tons of restaurants, schools, parks around the area. Also, bus routes are right in front of the building, in case you dont have a car.
When first converted, 2 BR units were selling around $220,000 and one BR condos for $195,000. However, as usually happens, prices drop on these new condos, and you can now get a 1 BR with underground parking for around $160K, and a 2 BR starting for under $200K.
Bonus Info on 180 Beliveau Rd – Tower 180 Condos
I recently sold a 1 BR unit in this building and found that the reserve fund study seems to indicate that the building is in great shape. Relatively low condo fees include many of the required expenses, such as heat, hydro and water. The fact that prices have dropped, make this a great building to consider for your first home. Call me if you want more info.
