Albertina Kerr Project Phase I; Aug 1st Construction Update

Albertina Kerr Begins Construction on $1.5M Project in West Gresham. Phase I; Aug 1st Construction Update. Info here!

Phase I; Aug 1st Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:

Greetings,

Well we are still moving and shaking on the job site. Every hour there is something new to "WOW" over. The rest of the sidewalks are in and the light posts are being mounted. 165th sidewalk will be back up and operational on Monday for the neighbors use. The remaining area is still construction zone and not open, yet.

The flooring install is in full force today at the residence and drywall is almost 100% at Subacute. The time capsule location has been framed in and is awaiting the time capsule. With the sidewalks in place you can see in greater detail where all the landscaping will be going. The basketball hoop hasn't arrived yet but expecting it anytime. The first set of draperies are completed for the residence and the extra bedroom set has arrived, it is just waiting install. We have been lucky to get a donation of some office chairs from our insurance company for a couple of spots at Subacute and are working on acquiring other elements.

Coming up, expect to see:

Mudder's, tapers, and painters at Subacute Floor getting done and trim going in at the Residence Site work will be continuing, including landscaping Fencing around back yard at residence going in Tile & cabinet work starting at Residence Licensing Walk through at Residence on Thursday the 7th

Right this second we are hoping to have the residence complete prior to the 21st but it is looking like Subacute will take up to that time for 100% completion. But as I have said we are moving and shaking and things are changing by the hour, so we will see.

Existing parking plan remains in place for another week.

Any questions, issues, concerns please just let me know.
