Preparation Hurricane Michael

Submitted by atalaya on Tue, 10/09/2018 - 11:46


As Hurricane Michael heads towards the Gulf Coast we are expecting him to arrive here early Thursday morning, so we are placing plastic with bath towel at the thresholds of every front door to help prevent water intrusions with the wind driven rain from the south - southwest. Officials are calling for 35-50 mile per hour winds and 4-5 inches of rain.


We will also be bringing in balcony furniture in the event the winds get greater than anticipated.

Water Proofing Project

Submitted by atalaya on Sun, 09/30/2018 - 10:08


This week will have crews working on, and around balconies from swing stage. There may be instances where they need to be on the balcony, but that will be from the swing stage to work on ceilings and checking caulking around sliding glass doors. This will be ongoing for the 2-3 stack this week.

Reopening Day for Atalaya Towers / Fall Projects

Submitted by atalaya on Sat, 09/29/2018 - 10:32


We are open as of today.


We were able to get parking lot across the street re-sealed yesterday. Cars need to stay off until Monday to allow the sealant proper curing time. Our neighbors have permitted us to use some parking under their buildings until Monday morning.


With favorable weather forecasted for next week our waterproofing project should move along nicely, and if all goes well the contractors may be moving on to the 4-5 stack within the next two weeks.

Day 12 Florence Recovery / Fall Projects

Submitted by atalaya on Thu, 09/27/2018 - 10:15


Elevators have been running a whole day today with new parts without issue and were used a lot getting FSA throughout the building re-installing carpet padding in approximately 20 units, as well as putting units back together as they were prior to the storm. They should be finished today, or tomorrow at the latest.


We are still planning on the lot across the street being re-sealed tomorrow unless contractor calls it off due to weather. We have made arrangements for parking under our neighbors to the north and south of us until Monday am. Parking passes will be required.

Elevator technicians have gotten both cars running and tested. We have operation once again. We are on schedule for accepting guests Saturday September 29th.


FSA will be in the building today re-laying carpets with new padding that was removed post storm.


Watkins will be working on the eastside of the building on the waterproofing project beginning on the North Side of the building moving South. There will be interruption of balcony use as they work in areas.


Weather permitting, we have scheduled the lot across the street to be re-sealed on Friday the 28th. This will have no cars on the lot until Monday October 1st.
