Happy New Year from the Uptown Development Team!
We moved a lot of dirt this fall and we are happy to report that we got everything accomplished that we planned for! All the underground utilities for the entire project have been installed: sewer, water, storm water, roof drains and conduits for electric, communication and irrigation are all in the ground and backfilled. The spaghetti bowl of overlapping pipe is buried and the heavy earthwork is over. The motor court paving for Phase 1 is complete and the snowmelt system should be operational in a few weeks. Foundations for Phases 2&3 are and backfilled and the and the sub-base for Phase 2/3 is done and ready for paving this summer. We even got most of the Phase 1 landscaping in before the snow came. Power poles and lines will be down by spring. A miracle on State Street, for sure.
All that impeded access and slowed progress on the Phase 1 construction, but things are moving quickly again. Garage doors have been installed on several units and they are beautiful! The masons are back on site and finishing up the brick work. Trim, cabinetry, flooring, tile work and painting are well underway and looking fabulous. Now that the exteriors and interiors are nearing completion and the entry is paved and landscaped, we are excited to think about taking down the fence to reveal the Uptown we envisioned. It is time to show off and sell the remaining units!
Unit B, now with improved river views, can still be customized and ready for occupancy this summer. To get a jump on construction and occupancy of the three remaining Riverfront Units (H, I and J), the foundations, lower-level framing, first-floor decking and pre-stressed concrete planks for garages are all in place, yet there is still time for customization and personalization. Plans, foundations and prices for the Cityside Live-Above-Work plans are now set and ready for spring construction start.
Amazingly, the word on the street and even among realtors is that Uptown is sold out! Others just can’t visualize; they need to see what Uptown is all about. Real estate activity picks up after the Holidays and builds through the spring, so don’t miss out. Contact us for a personal tour!
