New Year/New Progress
Notes From Richard
I can't believe that 2007 is over. 701 has had a busy year - first, from a clean it out so that you can see what you've got perspective and then a design it, build it and they will come perspective.
Everyone involved has worked hard on this unique project this year. Careful consideration has gone into every decision made and I'm proud to be a part of this team.
My stated goal in late May was to be substantially complete with the structure - new steel in place, roof on, windows in and storefront in place. General life safety issues taken care of and the building be ready to show possible tenants - even start working on some tenant build out.
Well, I've always been a bit of an overachiever...
If you were to stop by for a visit, this is what you would currently see...
Loft live/work framing in
New wall framing downstairs (interior walls)
New exterior wall framing
Gutters and downspouts being installed
Sprinkler piping being installed
Windows on the top east side going in
Interest from possible renters remains strong, however, we are still not quite ready to write leases.
If any of you would like to take a look around, please don't hesitate to call. I'll be glad to give you a personal tour!
