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

We have completed the 2-3 stack, or above the awning portion of the building, and moved the swing stage to the center stack or elevator shaft. They will be there weather permitting until the end of the week. They will be treating the metal roof, as well as any areas requiring repair. The metal roof will get sealant as well as two finishing coats of Coral Clay color. Same parking protocols will be in place. The building is getting a real clean look to it. The ceilings on every floor has been repaired and painted. When it's to windy for the swing stage the crews work on painting the corridor walls which is the same color of the building. Next move will be the 5-6 stack to do the same as the 2-3 or over the awning.
Thank you for your continued understanding, and cooperation,

Our waterproofing project is moving along nicely. The contractors have moved to the section over awning, so naturally we have routed foot traffic through the indoor pool door during the day, and arranged parking lot three rows back to avoid splashing of water, as well as paint. This is where the process takes a bit of time due to areas of the building that are identified as needing to be chipped away, treated, then concrete re-applied for painting. We are trying an additive to the paint this year that could help with the staining from water running down the building from corridors. Weather permitting this section should be completed within the next two weeks.
Thanks for the understanding, and cooperation,
