Condominium Fee & Amenity Comparison
 
Occasionally, realtors, potential purchasers and others have expressed that they believe the fees at ECE are high. In October of 2018 we completed a fair comparison of 16 condominium properties and the results certainly suggest that ECE, with a rank of 10th least expensive, offers reasonable fees, includes the most amenities of any property and offers the best security protection.
 
Condominium properties often vary with regard to what is included in their monthly fee, for example, ECE includes electricity and basic cablevision, many other properties do not. Also, ECE has 2 Concierge/Security staff working every shift, 24/7/365. We are not aware of any other properties in Calgary that have 2 Concierge/Security staff per shift. ECE also includes full time, onsite management.

Some properties have only 1 security shift per day (daytime only or perhaps just evenings), some have a combination of the two and a few include 24/7/365 coverage. When only 1 Concierge/Security person is working per shift, there is virtually no security because when they take their break or when emergencies occur, there is nobody remaining to monitor the security video system, perimeter doors and other areas of concern.

If security is of little to no concern, there are certainly condominium properties that may be more attractive because the fees would be less but if security is of a concern, ECE certainly offers the greatest protection with 2 staff per shift, a comprehensive security access/video system, specific policies & procedures in place, plus frequent training and staff meetings.
