Beautiful tower, but unfortunately it's still 90 percent empty

How can it be 90% empty if the Hotel alone occupies more then 10% of the tower?

Hi Jay.

That article is from Oct 27 2010 ...

1 - I don't have any concrete numbers for the hotel zone but I would think it is near full up most of the time.
2 - The 4 residential zone handovers have been completed for near a year. I haven't heard any official occupancy numbers recently but I would hazard a guess based on the average night lighting at 20 to 30 %. The fact that occupancy is not 100 % reflects the fact that many owners bought units to flip for profit, rather than to live in them.
3 - The office zone is long completed shell and core, as is 'The Offices' (annex). Occupancy is admittedly nil in both of these areas.
4 - 'The Club' (annex) is completed. Not sure why it isn't open yet ?

I do agree - a beautiful structure. It isn't the first WTB (or WTS) to take some time to fill up. I think it will be both fully occupied and profitable at some point.


Ray.
