The one renovated hallway looks good. Hopefully the rest of the floors get done soon. I wish they'd get rid of the pond or redo it. It doesn't add much to the aesthetics of the place. I'd prefer more usable common area.

N00b: Doesn't add much to the aesthetics? Seriously? What would you rather have there?

In which building is the renovated hall?

Maybe they could take out the pool and put in a volleyball court.

jh35: It's on the fifth floor in building C.

I hope you're kidding about the volleyball court.  :D


Literally anything else. Unless significant maintenance is dedicated to the pond (as in hourly attention), the pond is going to look gross/broke. To me, that trade off is not worth it. Just a personal opinion. I'm aware that it's probably going to stick around.

The cascading pool is always well maintained, as is the garden.

I went to see the renovated hallway on the fifth floor of building C.  ??? Could it be more ugly?

The non renovated hallway is pretty bad to begin with? I don't know about your building but mine is pretty dark and bleh. Can you snap a photo

Yea I mean relative to the old hallways the new hall is an improvement. They did it the easy way though. Just a paint job and put carpet over the old floors. I can see the carpet getting dirty really quickly.

Really? That's disappointing. So it looks nothing like this rendering? Unless the rendering is meant to be reflective of the building lobbies, not the hallways.

The carpeting looks better in the pictures. It is cheap, thin squares.

Hahaha. I was just thinking: Oh the carpeting doesn't look so bad. Well, if nothing else, the door knockers look good. lol.

To someone else's point, I don't think that would be the case for the lobbies, which doesn't have carpeting in the rendering. But in the hallway...it's not that uncommon. The building we currently live in in LIC has carpenting in the hallways. Perhaps the upside is that our carpets are regularly cleaned by one of the many porters employed by the management company. Probably won't be as consistent here, which could lead to some messy halls...
