Could it be possible, for example, that each floor has only 1 studio (as 21x4=84)? And would it be possible then (for someone else, not me, haha) to prognosticate that a 1 bdr + 2bdr takes up the same amount of space as a 3-bdr, and extrapolate how many are likely to be on each floor? Are there 4-bdrs to mess up the ratio further?
Yeah, I was operating on the assumption each building layout was *probably* the same, although I think that is a false assumption based on my walking around there and actually seeing the buildings. The north buildings have secondary entrances/lobbies and I think are larger than the two south buildings (the two north structures may actually function as four buildings instead of two). I am going on the 1 studio per floor assumption because more would put studios over 10% of the total - I said 80-84 because the first floors of all the buildings should have different layouts than the rest of the floors because of the lobbies.

On another note, I saw that they were completely reconstructing balconies on at least one building, so the renovation work is pretty extensive. Did look like some of the scaffolding was in the process of being dismantled last I walked through though.

I walk by pretty often. The scaffolding has come down. They have been working on the parking lots and the side walk on the Columbia side. I've been looking for floor plans or a brochsure. Can't find anything.

Huh, interesting! I would think if you were going to build buildings with identically sized guts you'd have them, well, identical. Seems like a lot of work for them to be actually different but that's why the architects make the big bucks. Or, you never know, they seem reliable enough but I don't know if Emporis backs up its data with feet on the ground. Maybe they, likewise, assumed the buildings would all be identical. I agree though, the studio math works out too patly with the 10% rule taken into account to be very wrong.

Smile masaryk tower

hi all, I stopped by the management office today and was told they need a month to know if they received the application, so hopefully call before the end of June to find it out.

Here's a map model of the neighborhood with Masaryk in the lower right, you see the difference between the north buildings and the south buildings, the main part of the ones on the northern side look to be the same as the south buildings, but with an additional attached part with its own lobbies at the ends.

I see what you mean popartist. I wonder if the office give that information out. You're on the studio waiting list?

Does anyone know what the process is to get a parking space?

No, I am on the one bedroom list, just trying to determine if I should adjust my two-year wait estimate up or down a bit!

Thats a good number to have when I got on the list in 2010 I got number 1100 today its at 700ish. It moves just a bit slow. Dont forget the waiting list only moves after its been offered to the current residents.
