With the door painting portion of the project being delayed on account of wet and cold weather in January we are seeing that now is a good time to proceed. Starting Friday the 19th at 9am our contractors will begin on the 17th floor with finishing up whatever grinding is needed to then be treated and painted along with the doors. Being that it is not possible to keep doors open in vacant units for drying we will be painting doors closed. Therefore, whenever you are her you will need to get the paint from maintenance to finish doors trim as you see it when you open door.
After the doors are completed, and we have not began to get to busy with occupancy we will begin the re-coating of the corridor floors. What we can't get to we will pick back up in early fall. This side of the building is the most challenging due to the traffic factor.
Thank you for your cooperation,

While the doors are being worked on, another worthwhile project is about to begin. The Southside a/c deck and platform are about to be expanded. Right now it's very difficult and dangerous for work to be performed on a/c units on it. With systems getting bigger the area needs expansion. The plan is on Monday February 1st we will have a crane to move a/c units to the ground after technicians confirm wiring details for when the units will be hooked back up. Then the expansion of the deck will not be slowed by working around units. This project without any major issues should only take about 2-3 days.
The affected units are 105,205,305,405,505,605,705,106,206,306,406,506,606,706. This is a good time of year for this project, because no air conditioning is required, everyone has auxiliary heat to use with air handler without outside unit being needed. There will be the need to get inside units to confirm wiring, so if you are renting your unit yourself please let your renters know. We will be contacting rental agencies to inform their guests in affected units.
There's always some project worthwhile doing at Atalaya.

The Westside face of Atalaya has a fresh new look along with being protected from the elements. The swing stage has been dismantled and removed from the property opening back up the parking lot 100%. The contractors have started from the top working down sanding, grinding, and priming doors needing attention. This step does not require doors open. After prepping all doors they will then go back to the top and paint all doors prepped. At this time the doors will need to be open for painting the entire door 100%. If not you will notice the edging of the door not painted when you open it. But, if you don't want door open let us know and you can paint the edging when you come to your unit.
The biggest news is that after consulting with our contractor and product specialists it was determined that considering the concrete floors need to be 50 degrees for product to set and cure properly winter is not the time to proceed with this portion of the project. We will finish everything but the floors over the next couple of weeks including corridor walls, and the doors, then they will come back in March when days are longer, and the sun hits the corridor floors for them to apply product at night after a day of warming. Therefore there will be notices for foot traffic to stop at 8 or 9 pm in order for contractors to work on floors. We will be informing through emails to owners, and rental agencies as we get closer to actual date. The hope is doing 2 floors per night, therefore weather permitting this should be over within two weeks.
This is a large and worthwhile project for Atalaya, and we need and appreciate everyone's cooperation.

Our center tower has been completed from metal roof to and including our building name and address numbers with fresh paint. We have now moved onto the 5-6 stack which is located over the indoor pool door from parking lot. Therefore this access is not in use. The awning area and lobby door are the use for entering, and exiting. The weather will be playing the uncertainty roll from this point on in the project. More so now that we are into winter. The building must be at the correct temperature to accept materials, and that may not happen until afternoon when sun comes around to the front of the building.
The real challenge will be when we get ready to address the doors and corridors of the building. We will identify the doors that need attention. Also when this step occurs there will be sanding and grinding at the time around the doors. When this stage begins it's very important that you check this site out for literally corridor use shut downs. At this time unless it's a medical emergency no traffic can be on corridors while wet. The good thing is that in order to do corridors it will be a nice day, so either go golfing, shopping, site see, or have projects for inside, and also read a book. Obviously we will post schedules in order for the entire building, but we want you to know through this site. We will only be doing one, or two corridors at a time. This process can not be rushed, so you can see how long this process will take. And taking weather into account this could take a while.
We wish everyone a very safe and happy holiday season
We thank you for your continued cooperation, and understanding
