Spotlight on: Sky Waterfront Condos
Located along scenic Waterfront Dr. in Winnipeg, we find the this very special condo project. The Sky Waterfront Condos. This modern, all concrete building offers many amenities along with its central location. Close to the baseball park, the new Human Rights Museum and theatres, in the East Exchange District.
Year Built: ca. 2009
Sky Waterfront Condos are made up of 112 condos in 1 building. There are 2 sections to this building, one being 5 storeys tall, the other 7 storeys. Totally connected, each section also has its own elevator. Units range in size from 809 sq feet for a 1 BR plus den, to larger units of 1600 sq feet. There is even a 2,000 sq ft unit as well. Note, the 1 BR plus den could actually be called a 2-BR unit: even though the ‘den’ does not have a window, it is equipped with a sprinkler system.
Just the usual condo-restrictions, such as “No Laundry to be hung from the balcony” etc. Pets are allowed, so long as they don’t pose a nuisance to other owners. Owners are allowed to rent out their suites, however must put up a $1,000 leasing levy to assure that their tenants abide by all rules.
Gross Property Taxes range between approx. $2900.00 per unit to $6000, depending on size. Of course, as an owner who actually lives in their unit, you would qualify for the Provincial Home Owners Assistance Rebate, similar to when you own a house.
Condo fees range between $250 and $500 per month, which includes snow removal, property maintenance, water and management fees. Owners pay for their own hydro, telephone, and cablevision.
Laundry and Parking
All units have their own insuite laundry, and most have an underground parking spot, although a few include an outdoor spot.
