JUST SOLD: Palace Place, Suite 4601 for the HISTORIC RECORD PRICE of $1,255,000, or $515 per square foot!

Palace Place Skyline (CYMK 300)Sold Card - PP 4601Special Announcement: Luke Dalinda achieves a historic $515 per square foot for Palace Place.

I have written to proudly announce that I have set yet another record price at Palace Place by having just sold Suite 4601 for $1,255,000, or $515 per square foot, by having represented the seller.

With the current average price per square foot at $405, this sale price represents the highest price per square foot ever paid at Palace Place, yet clearly shows the incredible value that Palace Place still offers buyers, who are considering inferior, new construction at $700 to $1,000 per square foot.

This is a historic accomplishment for Palace Place that clearly demonstrates the value of a realtor who knows his product, has key connections, and can walk his talk.

Buyers want space, and, most importantly, buyers want quality. New construction fails to deliver these two key requirements. Palace Place offers magnificent floor plans that you cannot find in new buildings today!

Change has come to Palace Place!

All the best,

The Dalinda Report, August 2012, is out! Palace Place experiences a slow summer.

The new issue of The Dalinda Report has just been posted!

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

An excerpt has been noted below.

Palace Place had experienced a very poor July 2012, as total sales had decreased from 7 sales in July 2011 to 4 sales in the July 2012.
These sales were for very low prices, and these sales demonstrate a lack of homework on the part of realtors looking for a quick sale and failing to perform a proper comparative market analysis. These Palace Place suites had sold for between $15,000 to over $125,000 below my recent record prices.

As always, I am honored to be considered for your real estate needs, and I work very hard to earn the right to represent you.

• Luke Dalinda writes his own market reports, in fact, he had been the first to do so, while other realtors pay some firm that has never even set foot or done a deal at Palace Place to prepare “market reports”.

• Luke Dalinda has lived and practiced through every market cycle at Palace Place. His breadth and depth of market knowledge at Palace Place is unparalleled.

I had again set a new all-time record price for 06 suites by having sold Suite 1706 for $783,333 or $395 per square foot.

I had again set a new all-time record price for 02 suites by having sold Suite 3002 for $580,000 or $489 per square foot.

Farewell, Archie Blair. Palace Place will forever stand tall in salute of your hard work and dedication.

(Pictured above Archie Blair presenting Luke Dalinda with his beloved construction helmet from Palace Place.)

Today was a sad day for Palace Place.

After 20-years of dedicated service, Archie Blair, Palace Place’s faithful building manager, had retired.

Archie had been the only one from the original Bramalea construction team to stay with Palace Place, and no one knows the building better.

I had literally grown up with Archie at Palace Place, so for me, while I know that we will keep in touch, it still feels like we have lost a family member.

Archie had helped me with research for my book on Palace Place, and I have written his profile page below.

Although, nothing will ever equal the stories that he had shared with me over the years, and, believe me, several novels could be written from them.

I had spent some time with Archie today, his last day.

Archie had given me his beloved Bramalea construction helmet from when Palace Place had been built. Archie had told me, “No one loves Palace Place the way that we do. I would like you to keep my helmet safe onsite for me.”

I am pleased to report that Archie’s helmet has been polished up, and it now sits with other Palace Place memorabilia in my office on the 42nd floor.

Archie, you will always have a family at Palace Place, and you will be greatly missed.

An excerpt from Palace Place, the book, by Luke Dalinda.

He is the only one.

The only one to have witnessed the construction of Palace Place from the very beginning and to have lived with Palace Place until the present day.

There is not a soul that knows Palace Place better than Archie Blair. No one knows Palace Place hands-on like Archie. Like the starship Enterprise, Archie is our Scotty, and he has kept Palace Place shipshape for almost 20-years since first occupancy.

Archie had come to Canada from Scotland as a carpenter in September of 1972, and he had supervised the construction of family homes in Peterborough and The Kawarthas.

In 1976, Archie had joined Bramalea Consolidated Limited, one of Canada’s largest property developers, as a maintenance person, and he had quickly worked his way up to Director of Operations, overseeing the entire Bramalea maintenance department. He had worked as a liaison between property management and Bramalea construction, and he had trained the superintendents and managers on all new buildings.

When it had come to Palace Place, Archie had been responsible for reporting on the construction activities to the executive team at Bramalea.

It had taken the best, most-talented trades to meet Bramalea’s exacting standards for Palace Place. “We all knew that this building was special. All the workers gave everything they had. They knew that this would be a living testament of their work.  It was a real team effort. We all took great pride in building Palace Place,” Archie had said.

When construction had completed, Archie had joined the Palace Place condominium corporation as its first employee as Building Operations Manager, and he has worked for Palace Place ever since.

As Building Operations Manager, Archie is responsible for the direction, supervision, performance, and evaluation of all Building Operating Personnel, which include eight housekeeping staff and two building operators. He is responsible in all areas pertaining to housekeeping, structural, mechanical, electrical, and building operations of both the interior and exterior. Archie overseas all needed repairs and maintenance that is conducted by staff and outside trades, and he obtains competitive quotes for necessary work and special projects.

Archie deals with day-to-day building operating problems, and he assists in the issuing of new contracts.

Archie had supervised the biggest renovations at Palace Place, which had included the following.

* Widening of driveway at gatehouse
* Replacing interlocking at entrance with patterned concrete and re-asphalting driveway
* Repainting of garage (5 levels)
* Re-lamping of garage (twice)
* Design and Installation of sliding doors at front entrance
* Conversion of Corridor Fresh-air units and domestic hot water tank from electricity to gas
* Alterations of the recreation lounge
* Replacement of corridor carpets
* Riser valve replacement
* Design and supervising construction of Garbage Shed
* Design and supervising construction of Recycling Area
* Upgrade of emergency generator
* The replacement of the Chillers, the Cooling Towers, and the Boiler
* Changeover of ceiling heating in P1 garage from electric to gas

It is common for architects and builders to leave their buildings once they have been built, never to return. To have seen Palace Place built floor by floor, to have been on site every day, to have been involved in the design and construction, and to have been a part of the original team is something that can never be replaced, and it is an education that can never be equaled.

Palace Place residents have been very fortunate to continue to have one of the original builders on site.

Archie Blair has dedicated 23-years of his life to making Palace Place one of the best condominium residences in Canada, and Palace Place will forever stand tall in salute of his hard work and dedication.
