and AC for the building are generated at a central location, not in each unit. The thermostats control the amount of warm
or cool air blown into each unit to manage the temp locally. If you suspect that the heat
or AC has gone out because your vent is blowing cool air in winter
or warm air in summer, follow these steps:
1. Check to see the thermostat is working. Check other vents in your unit and the temperature of air coming from them.
2. Contact the management company to inform them if you think that
the central heat or AC is not working.
There is parking available to residents in the city garage next to the building for a discounted monthly rate. The fourth floor provides a catwalk from the garage level into our building which eliminates a lot of walking. The Office for purchasing passes is located at the garage entrance.
Office hours are posted there. Payment is due and payable on the 1st of each month. The garage is lighted and 24 hour security is onsite.
IMPORTANT! While the rotary directly in front of the building is owned by us, the rest of the parking lot is owned by Canal Place I. DO NOT EVEN THINK OF PARKING IN FRONT OF
CANAL PLACE I - YOU WILL BE TOWED!
You can park for short periods (while you're bringing in
groceries etc.) if there is space in front of the mail room. You
must not block the driveway in front of the building. It is a
fire lane and must be open for emergency vehicles.
Packages for our building are being retrieved from the mail closet
and put on the mail table in the area between the A and B buildings
on the 1st floor. Fed Ex and UPS often leave packages on the
floor of the mail room. If you can't find a package that you
are expecting, please contact the trustees. We can check the
closet for you.
There is a small coin-op laundry room in the basement, next to the
trash room. Use the front door key to access it. You will need
quarters. There is no bill changer there. If you find any problems,
please contact our property manager.
Owning a condo is like owning any other piece of property; you'll have neighbors that you enjoy, ones that you tolerate and others that you may never see. The difference is that with a condo, you share walls, floors and ceilings. You are in closer proximity to these people.
It's always good practice to try to be a good neighbor. Respect others' desire to have a quiet, peaceful environment. Try to be friendly and neighborly first. If, for some reason, there is a problem, try some of these suggestions:
If there is noise coming from your neighbor's unit that is bothering you, try to contact the person living there by phone or knocking on their door. Politely request they turn down the volume or quiet the disturbance if they can.
If the noise is during the hours of 11pm to 7am, politely remind them that these are quiet hours in the building (and the city). If you are the one causing the noise, please reduce it so not to disturb your neighbors or cease your activities. Construction during these hours is absolutely not allowed.
If you and your neighbor cannot come to a resolution, you must decide how to proceed. The Lowell Police can be reached to resolve domestic issues at any time. The Trustees are not the police and cannot, and should not, intervene unless there are issues with common areas.
If problems with common areas arise, please contact the
property manager immediately. Trash in the hallways, clogged trash chute, damage to walls, stairs, windows, fire extinguishers, etc. constitute reasons to contact the
If you have seen a resident cause damage to the building, please contact
our manager immediately.
That depends - Most shut-offs are located near the water heater down low where the cold water comes in. In the 3 bedrooms they are in a hole in the sheetrock right behind the water heater and under the stairs. In the 1 and 2 beds, it varies. Look near the hot water heater. You should have a shut-off in your unit.
