We have been informed by the City that they are planning a sound barrier wall to be put up on our property because of the noise coming off or Anderson Road, and the expected increase of noise because the the Ring Road that is now under construction. The images here show where the initial placement of that wall will be. The board will be in consultation with the City for finalized placement and construction if the board approves. We will update this page when we have new information to pass on. If you have concerns about this project, please contact us at email@example.com and title your email Anderson Road Widening.
During this time of extreme cold (-30 degree weather), the radiated heat system can only keep your unit at 18 - 20 degrees Celsius. This is normal and it means if your thermostat is set at 25, it will likely only warm to a maximum 20 degrees. If you require higher temperatures, you may need to wear additional layers of clothing or supplement the building heating system with an electric space heater (gas or other fuel sources are a fire hazard and against our bylaws).
To get the most out of the heating system:
ensure furniture, beds, drapes and other items are not blocking the heating system.
ensure the fireplace flue is in the closed position (when not in use) and cover the opening of the fireplace.
If you are concerned that your unit is not properly heated, before calling please check the radiant pipes. When warm or hot, they are likely working properly even though your unit may not be the temperature you desire. Please be aware that when you request a service call after-hours and the system is working properly, the unit owner is responsible for the after-hours plumber invoice.
If the radiant pipes are cold or fluid is seen leaking from the pipes, contact Simco Management immediately.*

Stay warm everyone!
*Please note: thermostats and the heating systems are common property and are the responsibility of the Condominium Corporation, as outlined in our 1998 by-laws. Changes in any one unit can effect every resident in the building so authorized contractors must be used. Any owners making changes to thermostats or the radiant heating system in their unit are responsible for inspection and resulting repair costs by the Southampton Green Condominium Corporation’s authorized contractors.
The clubhouse at Southampton Green downstairs area is shut down until which time renovations have completed. Also note that the southern area of the clubhouse will be going through repairs this October to stop water from entering the basement. Please be aware of any contractors in and around the clubhouse. Access to the laundry card system is still available. There may be a time in which it is not while the southern area is being dug up. Please keep your children away from the building during these renovations.
The Board of Directors, is pleased to announce the installation of a new intercom and fob system for Southampton Green.
The first phase of the project is to install a fob system on the clubhouse, to collect detailed information and to distribute 2 fobs to each unit at no cost. Owners will need to fill out forms that will be mailed out. If you do not get your package, you can log in to the owners area, download the forms, fill them out and present them with your picture ID on the dates below. Distribution of the fobs will take place in the clubhouse party room on:
Wednesday July 20, 2016 – 2pm – 5:30pm
Thursday July 21, 2016 – 2pm – 5:30 pm
Do not forget to bring your picture ID and completed paperwork with you
The board has approved many new projects for 2016. First of which is the replacement of all lower patio stone blocks changed over to poured cement pads. This project will take place over the summer. It is not yet confirmed that all main floor patios will be installed this year, but the hope is they will be. There maybe times when certain trees will be removed, or roots cut back to prevent heaving the of pads. The board will try to keep tree removal at a minimum as trees are what makes Southampton Green so special.
