I was showing condos to a client of mine the other day in the Union Square tower in Victoria Park. Union Square is a beautiful tower in the heart of Victoria Park close to the downtown, 17th Ave and various shops and pubs. Units in Union Square range from 1 bedrooms to 2 bedroom and of course a couple penthouses. Most of the units have great city and mountain views while units on the south and east sides enjoy cathedral and east village views. I have shown many units in Union Square over the years and think the developer and architect did a great job with the building.
Unfortunately when I was in the lower level parking this particular time I found ground water spewing out of the concrete. Calgary has had record rain fall this spring which is likely where the ground water is coming from. This type of thing has happened in other towers in Calgary and I imagine the developer will do what it takes to correct the problem. If not the residents can turn the 4th level parking into an Olympic sized swimming pool. In the other buildings I have seen they were able to bring it under control and come up with a solution. I will post an update if I hear of any further developments.
