Did you email the concierge about your move in date? If so, did they reply quickly?

I emailed them to schedule my move in time and key pick up, they were very prompt (responded in about 10 min) and helpful.

Guys I just went in to sign off on my HDC paperwork. They're completely stressed and overwhelmed but my rep today was still totally polite and sweet. I got the rundown on what to expect for myself, and this may be applicable to some of the rest of you waiting.

Everyone is now being called in by log number within their respective income bracket to sign HDC releases for that final approval. However - if someone with a lower log number appeals a rejection WHILE your paperwork is in HDC review, you can STILL lose the place to that person with a lower log number and find yourself back on the waitlist. It's not final til that lease is signed, people...

Apparently my income bracket has very few apartments left (and had the least to begin with, anyway). I was offered a studio - no 1 bedrooms left (or not being offered for this bracket, unclear). They have not assigned me a specific unit - so many things are in flux, it's just not feasible. I am set up to view a unit (not necessarily "mine," just a unit...). The closest appt available was in 2 weeks... the next viewing appointment after that was not until March.

So. Back to waiting. Congrats to those already in... I am hoping hoping hoping to join you all soon, but still far from the end of the road.

you would have to schedule a move-in time so you would have access to the elevator, its not too much of a hassle, there are carts there where your able to use to get bulk stuff on

Wow, this is intense. I'm sending everybody good vibes out there. It sounds like it's getting down to the wire.

So basically even if you have a preference it doesn't matter at this point. From my knowledge correct me anyone if I'm wrong but I haven't heard of any municipal employee receiving a unit besides one person whom said they were CB preference as well. This process is totally draining. Its understandable for things not to go 1,2,3 but its like every other week someone is being told something different. We are told if you have a preference thats a good thing and now it means nothing which is ridiculous. Not only do I have a municipal preference but I have a low log number and have only been told that there is no waitlist or rejection letter on file for me yet I havent been called in to sign any additional paperwork for HDC. This process can surely turn an optimist into a pessimist.

We didn't discuss preference today, that's why it's not in my post... I don't know HOW they incorporate preference into all of that other nonsense, lol, but HDC told me they're SUPPOSED to start pulling the preferences (disabilities first, then the others - can't remember if municipal comes before or after CB), then go for non-preference applicants last. Presumably they then, within those categories, go by income bracket, then within all of those breakdowns, log # to determine the order. But I suspect the whole thing is more nuanced and fluid then rigid, with so many moving pieces in play at once.
