  • Is the building quiet?
    The building is concrete construction which is very effective in reducing sound. The concrete walls between suites are 8" thick, and include an air space between the concrete and the metal studs and drywall to mitigate noise transmission between suites. As well the floors are designed to have an impact isolation class (IIC) rating of IIC 54, which minimizes any impact transmission from suite to suite. In addition, the building was designed with few shared walls between suites. The large south facing windows are LiteZone insulating glass units that minimize summer heat gain and winter heat loss and significantly cut out Ultraviolet rays. They are also effective at eliminating most outdoor sounds. However, depending on the season, when you are out on your balcony or if you have your windows open you might hear bands playing, traffic noise or the carillon ringing.
