Don't see how the unit as shown on their website meets the building code. The room that has the entry door into it has no window so under the code you can't legally describe it as a living room, dining room, or bedroom. That means that the "living space" and "dining space" (not including the kitchen and bath portions of the unit) must be within the left hand room shown on the drawing (the one with the window) At 120 sq ft for a shared living space and 85 square feet for shared dining space (the code minimums for a bachelor apt.) you get 195 sq ft which is certainly bigger than that left hand room. Maybe the "hotel" thing in the name is part of some legal bullshit to try to weasel around this?

Also the Municipal property standards bylaw stipulates that the kitchen needs at least 8 square feet of work surface, which does not seem to be the case after subtracting the area occupied by the built in cooktop shown, and space for a stove, which does not seem to be present.
