  • The use of fiberglass lath and stucco bonding agent is more safe and environmental friendly than of asbestos. I wish thy implement the use of these materials on all infrastructure works including home and building construction and renovation. These products are available at, since this is also a DIY improvement…[Read more]

  • Good evening, everyone. Hoping to see you all Wednesday night at the annual shareholders’ meeting.

  • Hi everyone! I lost my keys Superbowl weekend. I had them here at the building and I was going to the laundry room and back but haven’t seen them since. If anyone has seen a set of keys could you please let me know?

    So far I like the new intercomm system. Are we all going to have our old system phones removed and walls patched up? :-) The new system works well and so far has not been a problem to use my cell phone to open the door…

    • A good question and I apologize for the delay. The old intercom phones will not be removed as they remain part of the doorbell system. I’m glad it’s been working well and we should have the apartment directory (excluding those who opted out) up soon. This way, visitors (e.g. food deliveries) with only an apartment # can see the code without…[Read more]

  • Anyone interested in planning the 2014 Holiday Party?

    • Hey Matt.. not sure what’s involved in planning, but if you set a date, make a flier like you did for halloween, i’m sure people will show up :-) Sorry I have so much on my plate at the moment… not sure party planning is in the cards this year.

  • Thanks to everyone for their patience with the intercom installation. Also, I know that the driveway isn’t the most exciting project for most of us, but it’s an upgrade to the building that significantly reduces liability for the corporation, as the old driveway was in poor condition. Our next project (beginning in 2015) is an energy audit that…[Read more]

  • Hi all, I have just moved into The Hamilton Building and am offering private yoga classes (group classes can be worked out if you have a small group who are interested). My email is if you are interested in scheduling a session! Have a great week – Julia

  • Hi all, I am looking for a recommendation for a contractor/painter to do some work in my apartment. Anyone out there know anyone?
    Help is greatly appreciated.

  • Good evening, everyone. Just wanted to take a moment to thank people for coming out to the meeting last night and participating. We need to have a solid core of concerned residents to really make this place work. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

    Good meeting last night… Thanks to the board for dealing with all these matters on behalf of the shareholders. I feel like we’re in good hands.

  • Hi everyone. Looking forward to a good turnout at the annual meeting on 6/16. Hope to see you there.

  • Hi my name is Alex from apt 7N, I’ve lived here at the Hamilton for a couple of years now. I think that this new intercom system is a bad idea in regards to ringing designating phone lines when a guest arrives. I for one do not have a land line, only a cell phone. I should not have to install and pay for a land-line just for this.

    1. What if my…[Read more]

    • Hi Alex,

      It’s Matt Symons, the Board president. I’ve received similar feedback from other residents and although valid, I’m aware of this system being successfully installed in other buildings and our existing system is prohibitively expensive to maintain (several hundred dollars per repair, and due to the age of the system, we’re making more and…[Read more]

      • I’m all for trying something out to see if it works… but if we end up switching systems again, have we spent money in vain? Don’t want to pay for two new systems.

      • Hi Matt,

        Thank you for your quick response. If not all residents are on board with this proposal, I think that the board needs to rethink this. An intercom system is supposed to be a stand alone system. By ‘digitizing’ you are exposing it to external variables. When making an educated decision one needs to look at all possible scenarios (which…[Read more]

    Anyone know when Verizon FIOS will be available?

    • Great question. We’ve signed one agreement with them and have one more agreement to go. Once that happens, we’re still looking at several months before the installation occurs–they’ve got quite a backlog. More to come on this.
