Based on furniture and light activity in the building at night there are quite few units occupied with tenants. Does the city issue partial occupancy for sections of the building or are they just turning a blind eye that the building has tenants living in it without occupancy? As a landlord I would be concerned about the validity of my insurance if I didn't have occupancy from the city.
As the BP is for both the residential and commercial components, it could be that there's partial occupancy for the residences while the commercial base is still completing? Dunno, just shooting in the dark...
I think this building looks great. It's eye catching in a good way and will bring more people into the area to support the local village businesses.
Cook St. Village is an area I haven't spent much time in, but I've walked through a few times recently and it's a neighborhood I could easily grow to like. More developments like this, as well as reasonably priced condos would go a long way here.
This building has at least occupancy now, it appears that some residents have moved in.
Cross-post from the retail thread:
Paws on Cook, which has been in the Cook/Oscar building at the north end of Cook Street Village since the building was built almost a decade ago, is relocating to the new 200 Cook Street Building at the south end of the village. They will occupy the large corner space that was being considered for a restaurant IIRC.
I look forward to seeing who winds up leasing their current space; the other tenants there are a Village Restaurant (formerly Bubby’s Kitchen) and a Hot House Pizza outlet.
That makes sense. I walked by and saw a sign saying they were moving but it didn't look like they indicated where to.
