0. Introduction
A condominium, or condo, is the form of housing tenure and other real property where a specified part of a piece of real estate (usually of an apartment house) is individually owned, while use of and access to common facilities in the piece such as hallways, heating system, elevators, and exterior areas are executed under legal rights associated with the individual ownership and controlled by the association of owners that jointly represent ownership of the whole piece. "Condominium" is a legal term used in the United States and in most provinces of Canada. In Australia, New Zealand, and the Canadian province of British Columbia, it is referred to as "strata title". In Quebec, the term "divided co-property" (French: proprit indivis) is used, although the colloquial name remains "condominium". In France, the equivalent is called coproprit (co-ownership), usually managed by the syndic. In Hispanic regions, the traditional term propiedad horizontal is retained since horizon in this case signifies "defined". In South Africa, this form of ownership is called "sectional title".

Three unit designs will be available to tenants namely downtown soho, fifth avenue, and park avenue. B. Bedroom Units This 1-bedroom unit has its living, dining and kitchen areas, and a luxurious bedroom with bathroom and tub.
