Six Compelling Reasons for Millennials to Choose Condo Living

A great location in Langford

Condos get built in popular areas, and Triple Crown is no exception. Entertainment, restaurants, and shopping are all close by in the vibrant city of Langford BC. If the great outdoors is more your style, lakes, biking paths and golf courses are all around you. Triple Crown is close to town on the edge of nature.

Condos Are More Secure than Houses

You don’t have to worry about installing alarm systems or video cameras. A two-key system – one for the front door and one for your unit makes the possibility of robbery slim to none. And your neighbours are a built-in block watch! It’s really hard for a thief to operate in a condominium without being seen. The added security will give you peace of mind.

Condos Provide Maintenance Free Lifestyle

Condominium lifestyle a maintenance-free lifestyle. That means you have more time to do what you enjoy doing. Who wants to be mowing the lawn when you could be on an outdoor adventure or entertaining friends? Time-consuming tasks like cutting the lawn and cleaning the gutters just don’t exist when you live in a condominium. Instead, you contribute to a monthly fee that takes care of building maintenance and repairs.

That also means the big repairs will cost you less because everyone contributes to a contingency (reserve) fund which takes care of future costs like roof repairs or window replacements. Many years from now when the roof must be replaced, the financial impact on your lifestyle will be far less than the 10+ thousand it would take to replace the roof of a house.

Living in a Condo Gives You More Freedom and Money to Travel

When you want to travel, you don’t have to make your plans around house maintenance considerations. Someone else is doing it for you. All you need to do is ask one of your trustworthy neighbours to water your plants while you are gone, then you can come and go as you please. Many a house owner has sadly had to forgo their adventure to take care of a house maintenance cost!

Condos Provide the Best Amenities Already Built In

All Triple Crown’s condominiums provide you with brand new, high quality appliances like modern kitchens with gas range cooking, a water and ice refrigerator, quiet close cupboards, dishwasher and in-suite washer and dryer. Your condo home will also feature quality cabinetry, quartz countertops, luxurious carpets, and Euro hardwood floors. Round that out with large decks, community gym and rooftop terrace and you have clean sleek, quality living at its best. Check out all the features.

Condos at the Triple Crown Community

Joining a condominium equals instant community! The condo lifestyle at Triple Crown offers residents a vibrant Langford lifestyle and neighbours from all walks of life from millennial to retirees. When you live among like-minded people, the potential to develop a friendly, close-knit community is greater.

Living in a Triple Crown Community condo in Langford provides Millennials with a lifestyle of convenience, freedom, and enjoyment than a house just can’t provide.

How Quiet is My Condominium?

“What about the noise?”

We hear this question time and again as a concern our customers have when they are considering a condo purchase.

“I like the idea of the condo lifestyle,” a customer told us. “I’m just not excited about hearing my noisy neighbours on all sides. I like a quiet space.”

We get it. We feel the same way.

“Did you know there have been recent changes to the National Building Code (NBC) to reduce noise transmission” we asked?

In 2015, the NBC, which is Canada’s building code that sets technical provisions for the construction of buildings, was updated to change how builders and architects design for acoustics to ensure you have quieter neighbours.

What is required and how they measure it needs a little explaining.

The measure of how much material can reduce noise transmission is called the Sound Transmission Class (STC). The higher the STC number, the less sound transmitted. The NBC now requires an STC rating of 50. For our technically inclined readers, this number is calculated by taking the Transmission Loss (TL) values at 16 standard frequencies over the range of 125 Hz to 4000 Hz and plotting the results on a graph. The TL is simply the difference between decibels in the area from which noise originates and another area the sound travels to. For example, let’s say your neighbours are having a party and they are creating a 90dB tone. That’s quite loud – about as loud as a large truck driving by. When we measure for the same tone on your side, we find it has been reduced to 40 dB – the sound level of a quiet home. That is a 50 dB Transmission Loss. 50 dB less sound energy made it through the wall to the other side for the single tone we measured.

But high STC ratings alone do not always guarantee a quiet condo. That’s because sound does not only travel through the air from one room to another. It also travels through the walls, floor and ceiling. This is called “flanking” noise and it isn’t considered in the STC. Fortunately, the NBC required a new rating called Apparent Sound Transmission Class (ASTC) – a much more realistic measure of the actual sound level transmitted between units because it includes noise transmitted through wall, ceiling and floor junctions. In addition to an STC rating of 50, adjacent units in a building must be separated by a wall, floor or ceiling partition with an ASTC rating of at least 47.

We don’t promise your condo will be as quiet as a vault. That’s unrealistic. An especially loud neighbor or an open patio door will still transmit some sound, but isn’t it nice to know you won’t be forced to live through the everyday activities of daily living next door?

Our Triple Crown builders are committed to making sure you can live in relative peace and quiet. It’s one more way we’re helping to ensure you have an amenable relationship with your neighbours!
