What’s Going Down at Uptown

Trees are down and the building is down, all since Monday. The property is jammed with heavy equipment, trucks and people. A beehive of activity. With the trees gone, the views of the Boardman River and Hannah Park are gloriously revealed and people are truly amazed. The spectacular fall colors paint a gorgeous picture. While I was there yesterday, I watched two minks chasing each other up and down the opposite bank while two fishermen in waders were casting for steelhead.

Access to the site is restricted, but if you are eager to see the views for yourself, give me a call and I will meet you on site and personally escort you around… I even have several extra hard hats!

We will be uploading photos regularly to our OneDrive folder. If you want to follow progress, you can go here to browse through more photos. http://1drv.ms/1oecu6N We’ll be putting them in dated folders. Free City Wi-Fi should be functional by the end of the month, so we are working on setting up a web cam that will take time-lapse of the construction progress that will be available from the web site as well as real-time views. I’ll let you know when that happens.

Recent articles in the Ticker about downtown living and various condo projects under way, along with all the on-site activity has the phone ringing off the hook and a big spike in website hits. On Wednesday, we took another deposit on a Phase 2 unit and have heavy interest in Phase 1 units B and C which I predict will be snapped up in the next week or so.

The Ticker also did another nice article this week recognizing the significant impact and contribution that Midtown and River’s Edge (our previous projects) have made to the City. It also highlights the depth of experience of our team, which lends credibility and confidence in our projects. Partnering with Dave Whiteford for design and construction just adds to that.

Molon Excavating is now preparing to install the sheet piling and pull tree stumps and will then begin basement excavation for the Phase 1 Riverfront units. Hardman construction has the contract to install Augercast pilings beginning in Mid-November. Concrete foundations for Phase 1 are expected to be in place by Dec 31 and team Whiteford will be starting to frame units A-E.

Plans for buildings AB and CDE have been submitted for permitting. Those plans (and all the iterations of floor plan layouts for all units) are available here http://1drv.ms/THH8a9 or will be posted as they are published.

for viewing or downloading (suggested, since Acrobat allows you to zoom in and out). You will also find prices for available Phase 1 Unit B in their folders, as well as pricing for typical units F-J.

Building AB Preliminary Rendering

The Master Deed Amendment to add Phase 2 units to the project is underway and we expect to file those in the next 30 to 60 days, at which time the Phase 2 reservations will be asked to step up to close on their lot purchase.

SAVE THE DATE: We’re planning an Open House on Wednesday November 5th at 4:30. The whole team will be there to answer questions. Feel free to invite your friends. Look for the invitation with location soon.

Questions? Give me a call. Better yet, make an appointment to meet on site!
