80-Story Aura Condo @ Yonge/Gerrard could be out of water for at least 7 weeks.
All because a booster pump failed. Aura is Canada’s tallest residential condominium with 2,000 residents. You'd think the condo developer would have designed a backup pump into such a massive building. However, this is the problem I've always thought with condos. People never pay any attention to the structure and systems of the building when they buy. It's mostly just "How many square feet am I getting for how much" and "What's the location?". Therefore the developers spend as little money as possible in that respect and just meet the minimum requirements of the building code so they do not get into trouble and that's it. They sell based on sizzle and cool marketing. Then the unit holders are left to deal with whatever mess happens later as is happening now at this condo.
I bet there are going to be a lot renters that are going to withhold rent, some lawsuits flying, etc. You can't even flush the toilet, never mind wash your dishes, take a shower, etc.
