Construction Progress and pictures, as reported by Eden’s Project Manager on April 9:
Building U (128 homes) – New Construction: First half of the concrete slab foundation is poured. We are officially moving vertical with the rebar in for the concrete columns and shear walls. Most of the columns are formed and will be poured today and the shotcrete walls will be filled in on Monday. The drill rig for the elevator pit is set up to prepare for the elevator install. Once drilling is complete, JMI will pour the second half of the concrete slab.
Building V (20 homes) – Rehab: Demo was completed last month and the wood framing retrofit is almost complete.
Utilities – We are installing the major backbone infrastructure for the entire site before Building V is complete. This is a huge job and there are still some pending approvals we need from Fire and the City of EPA. The wet utilities around Building V are almost done, and JMI is getting ready to start wet utilities around the other buildings this month.
Total apartments when complete (185 homes), an increase of (91 homes).
