The auditorium is back in business!

We’re happy to say that the Auditorium is back in use, with a new entrance, a slightly different layout, and partitions for VISIONS classes being run simultaneously in the space. Everyone seems to be acclimating to the changes quite nicely.

With demolition in full force in the basement, we know there’s quite a bit of banging and rattling. Some of this rattling caused an old pipe to burst, and unfortunately the building water had to be shut down with very little notice again. This time it was for a much shorter duration, but we apologize that it had to be shut down at all. Normally we like to give residents advance warning, but please understand that the last two incidents were unforeseen accidents and needed to be fixed promptly and properly. We thank you for your understanding and we assure you that we are taking precautions to avoid recurrences.

The week of May 19th is dedicated to flooring. Literally tons of old flooring materials are being removed and carted off. We will be getting down to the bare concrete so we can start fresh with new floors, new layouts for brand new walls and ceilings, and just about brand new everything in the basement and on the first floor.

But we can assure you that things are moving along on schedule, so try not to concern yourselves over the noise and bustle. Enjoy the beautiful weather! And you’ll be enjoying some brand new spaces before you know it!

As always, we appreciate all of your understanding and cooperation in helping to make this project a success.

    Thanks so much for the update. I would like to suggest that any announcements on renovation updates that need to be made be placed both in print and Braille in elevators and floors. In the past I have seen them only in print in elevators above average eye level I am short and could not read them. I don’t read Braille but I know a lot of residents do and I think they need to be put in the elevators in Braille as well, or on the bulletin board that was near the pay telephone on the first floor.
