General Information2021-01-26T12:05:46-05:00

Q: What type of construction is used for Vue Taché Condominiums?

A: Vue Taché will be a seven-storey apartment style condominium with a basement parkade. The foundation is precast piles and the parkade is comprised of concrete walls and floors with structural steel beams supporting the building above. A hollow-core concrete floor with 2 inches of concrete topping separates the parking level from the main floor. The seven-storey building is a combination of masonry walls and structural steel with hollow-core concrete floors and roof.

Q: What is the heating system used for Vue Taché Condominiums?

A: Each suite is heated and cooled with ducted electric fan coil units. Each suite has its own fresh air supply from the in-suite heat recovery ventilator (HRV) that captures heat energy from the exhaust air and uses it to pre-heat or pre-cool incoming fresh outdoor air. Some suites have two fan coil and HRV units. An efficient rooftop make-up air unit conditions the common areas of the building. Vue Taché Condominiums is a PowerSmart building. The parkade is heated with electric unit heaters.

Q: What security measures will be incorporated at Vue Taché Condominiums?

A: Access to the building will be through a secure interphone located at the building main entry. The main entry vestibule automatically locks after hours and requires a pin code to enter. All exterior doors feature high-security astragals and key fob access. There are security cameras at all building entry points which owners may view via an app. Closed circuit TV at building access points, parcel room, and amenity spaces are loop recorded on a security system. Deadbolts and peep holes will be installed in all suite entrance doors. Programmable key fobs will be used to access the building entries and parkade.

Q: What level of soundproofing can be expected at Vue Taché Condominiums?

A: All floor and wall soundproofing requirements are built to exceed the building code requirements.

The floors are constructed of hollow core concrete slabs with gypcrete floor topping.

Q: What materials and features will the exterior of the building have?

A: Vue Taché Condominiums will be finished with decorative cement board panels, aluminium composite panels, corrugated metal siding, and masonry veneer. The main entry area features Tyndal Stone Veneer sign and feature wall and with a canopy finished with premium aluminum composite paneling.

Q: I am concerned about the chance of a fire at the building. How has this been addressed?

A:  The unlikely event of a fire has been extensively considered at Vue Taché. The building is equipped with a comprehensive fire alarm system that includes a full fire-supressing sprinkler system, fire alarm horns and strobe lights, hard-wired in-suite early detection smoke and heat detectors, and emergency exit lighting and signage.  The suites are separated from each other with a 2-hour fire resistance rating on walls and floors.

Q: What are the advantages of a Condominium and how does condominium ownership work?

A: A condominium is a legal form of shared ownership, where the owner holds title to the individual condominium and a shared interest in the building and grounds common elements. A condominium allows for the financial benefits of ownership while leaving the chores of property upkeep and maintenance to our professional property managers. Residents will purchase their condominium homes outright, and pay a monthly “condo fee” to fund all shared common area expenses.

Q: What are the Common Element Fees at Vue Taché and what is included in the common element charge?

A: The common element “condo fee” will be based on your pro rata share of the common elements of the overall project. Current common element fees are expected to be approximately between $233-348 per month including sewer and water. Common element costs include all “common elements” or shared costs including (but not limited to) maintenance, grounds keeping and landscaping; service contracts; professional management; building insurance (owners require separate insurance for condominium contents and betterments); snow removal; common area lights, power, and heating/cooling; in suite and common area water and sewer including maintenance and replacement. Residents also gain access to the common outdoor park, terrace, dog run, a fitness studio and host kitchen lounge. Residents pay separately for telephone, Internet, cable TV, in suite hydro, contents and betterments insurance and realty taxes.

Q: As a unit owner will I have any part to play in the on-going operation and management of Vue Taché Condominiums?

A: The project will be professionally managed by a property manager engaged by the Developers and later by the Condominium Corporation Board of Directors. As a unit owner in the building you have voting rights in your condominium corporation. An annual general meeting of all unit holders will be conducted to review the business of the corporation. You may participate in the management of the corporation to a greater extent if you wish to stand for election to the Condominium Corporation’s Board of Directors.

Q: Can I purchase a condominium at Vue Taché and rent it until I am ready to occupy myself?

A: You may rent your condominium provided all rules and regulations of the Corporation contained in the condominium documents are complied with.

Q: How many floors and units will the building have?

A: The project will consist of one concrete building with 7 floors plus a heated underground parkade level. There will be a total of 87 units once complete.

Q: What type of insurance will I require for my new condominium home at Vue Taché?

A: The condominium corporation will provide insurance for the overall building. Owners will require separate condominium unit owners’ insurance on their contents and on any options or upgrades. The Condominium Declaration provides further information.

Sales & Pricing2021-01-26T12:04:08-05:00

Q: How can I reserve a new Vue Taché condominium and when will I have to make payments with respect to my purchase?

A: If you are not yet ready to write a formal Offer to Purchase, you can place a temporary, short-term reservation on the condominium of your choice (subject to availability), by meeting with our sales representatives and completing a Reservation Form together with a refundable deposit of $5,000. This deposit may then be directly applied to the Offer to Purchase, along with the remainder of the required deposit. The balance of your purchase price will be due just prior to occupancy.

Q: What are the advantages of selecting my Vue Taché Condominium early, and are Vue Taché purchase prices going to increase after construction is complete?

A: There are many advantages to selecting your condominium home early. For example you may want to obtain a particular exposure and location within the development itself. It is also easier to customize and select materials and products when you are involved with the project at an early stage. Perhaps most importantly you will be purchasing your Vue Taché Condominium at the lowest possible price.

Q: Is the GST included in the purchase price?

A: Yes. The net GST is included in the stated purchase price. Prices stated include 3.2% GST when applicable (reflective of the GST New Housing Rebate allowable). The Purchaser assigns the GST New Housing Rebate to the Vendor at time of closing. To be eligible for the GST Rebate, the Purchaser, or a member of the Purchaser’s immediate family, will on closing occupy the unit as his/her primary place of residence. Suites with a total purchase price exceeding $350,000 are subject to 5% GST as indicated.

Q: What are my real estate taxes likely to cost at Vue Taché Condominiums?

A: Property taxes are to be set by the City of Winnipeg which does not confirm amounts until a later time. These taxes will be dependent on the size and purchase price of the unit.

Q: When will your display suite be ready?

A: TBD
