Sneek Peak: Lofts at Mayfair (Part II)

I recently took at tour of the Lofts at Mayfair while construction was still in progress. The halls were more like dark corridors, the pool like a cloudy puddle, and there was dust everywhere. Today, I returned to see a spectacular loft development near completion.

Here is a glimpse of today’s tour:

The Lofts at Mayfair is located in the heart of Coconut Grove across from the Shops at Mayfair and Coco Walk. One parking space is assigned to each owner, although in some instances two are granted. Regardless, the area features three nearby parking garages that make guest parking convenient.

    the design is quite simple and yet eligant…..massive concepts are impressive.

  5. “I have to differ in opinoin regarding efficiency. In reality, more efficient use of energy does not amount to conservation. People install high efficiency light bulbs, then leave them on all day. I’m not kidding. More efficient cars are driven as much or more than less efficient cars.”– I will have to agree to that as well… People have to realize what the definition of efficiency really means. It really means counting calories.Everything can be converted to calories used in a day.In Britian, I heard that they will start implementing carbon credits. Everyone will be given a certain amount. The poor can sell their credits to the rich.That seems effective in some regards. I would still push for efficiency. But, in selling the concept, the idea of guilt and counting calories must also be introduced. We enjoy a lavish lifestyle of waste in canada. Honestly though, I would tax our resources in a major way. reinvest in human capital in a major way. Currently, we are giving ourselves away. A consumer nation we have become.Way way too much a consumer nation.That has to change as well.We don’t realize efficiencies anymore. We make far too much money from waste. Hence, we won’t change any time soon.A perfect example: look at all that traffic in the morning and night. A vehicle is about 25% efficient. The rest wasted in stop and go… Then consider the huge infrastructure we require for these huge metal boxes we haul ourselves around in. Businesses that rely on cheap fuel should be bitching up a storm on all this waste! For the more we waste every day, the more it cuts into the bottom line!Wait until food increases as fuel increases (peak oil)… people will start saying, hopefully, do you want to eat or drive!This might happen in our lifetime.(not including the fact the dramatic effects climate change has – warming, more desert or more rain in areas…)
