Building 3 Fire Update...
Carports and trash enclosures are the topic this week...
On Monday, April 1st, 2013 around 9:45pm a fire broke out in Building 3 at the Shadowbrook Apartments...
The latest update will sound a lot like the last update this week. The Club House and Leasing Office continue interior work with drywall and electrical. ...
As you can see from the size of the update we are progressing well with the project...
I am very enthused to announce that we have completed yet another major portion of the project...
We are in the home stretch and headed for the finish line. GO NINERS!! The renovations are headed that way too...
We finished the seismic portion of our project. The carports have now been reinforced to better withstand seismic activity
Welcome to the New Year and the last push to complete the project this spring and start having fun.
Before this weeks update, please know that our leasing office is still accepting donations for the following from 9:00am-6:00pm Monday to Saturday.
The holidays are fast approaching again and planning for that special event, vacation other holiday tradition is on everyone’s minds
Water seems to be everywhere as the rains keep coming.
Renovations will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday on Thursday November 22nd and Friday November 23rd.
Well on the way, siding, balconies and patio upgrades with new designs are taking shape.
We have had some minor delays both at the seismic site at buildings 5 and 6 as well as the siding and balcony portion of the project near building 13, 12, 11, 10 and 14.
Another week down, like waiting for a vacation, it seems to take forever and then its over before you know it. The check list for completion is growing longer and the to-do list shorter.
Well here it is 10 months into the project with the season change fast approaching. The first mention of rain on the news today brings up the topic of delays. We hope to dodge the weather and keep up the pace to have the new club house and leasing office enclosed soon.

In the last week a slight hiccup in the delivery of materials has delayed the siding project until October 9th. Notices have been posted to the first set of buildings and landscapers have begun the foliage clearing near the buildings.

Over the last few months we have held 4 town hall meetings with a very small turn out. We want everyone to be aware of the impact that this project may hold for you as we get closer to the rebuilding of the leasing office and club house, so to better communicate the project...

We have rescheduled for a property wide electrical shut down for April 23, 2012 from 9am to 6pm so that we might install new transformers and to connect a few of the buildings to the new grid. This will be the first of two shut downs the property will experience. The second will be a building by building shut down to connect the exterior boxes to the grid. Notices will be delivered as we finalize the schedules.

The new underground piping for the electrical upgrades is in place. Thanks all of those who assisted by moving cars from your spaces to allow the worker to complete their jobs in record time.
The first weeks in April will bring the connection of the new power grid. This will require shut downs of the transformers to the property and again for individual buildings as noted in earlier letters to all neighbors. We will be firming up times and dates with notices to follow.
