Spring is here at least a month early (in spite of the heavy snow warnings issued for tomorrow) and with that, the construction and real estate season is also off to a frantic start. The February 6th Open House was a huge success and created quite a stir. The word of the day was WOW! and “I never would have imagined” how cool this is. We are gratified, proud and nearly embarrassed by all the praises.
Unit J has been sold, leaving only Riverfront units H & I and B available. With that, we have ordered the lumber to continue framing H, I and J and the contractors will just keep on rollin’ down the river! What that does mean, though, is that we will be making decisions about exterior walls and windows that will limit some flexibility for the eventual owners, unless they jump in quickly while there is still time to make changes. Is that you? We’ll hold off erecting interior walls to maintain maximum flexibility inside, though, as we focus on getting the walls and roof on so we can start windows, brick and siding.
We are also going to start framing the Cityside units concurrently with the rest of the riverfront units so that, come fall, we will have all the exteriors done and courtyard paved before that first snowfall. We just don’t want to be fighting the snow another year! Nor do we want to put the residents through a prolonged construction period.
Occupancy of four Phase 1 Units will occur in April and May and with that, we will be taking down the entry gate and fencing and setting it up along the edge of the pavement between PH1 and PH2 & 3. All the high voltage power lines are now down. Once the communication wires come down the poles will come out, though we have not had word on when that will be other than “ by spring”. Then, after the brick goes on the W side of Unit F, we can start on the landscaping and steps down to the river with a completion of that expected in June.
There is truly nothing that can compare to the Uptown Riverfront units and there are only 2 left! Give me a call if you want a private showing, but hurry: once they are occupied we won’t have access any longer.
