Towers 2 & 3 Fire Alarm Upgrade: The fire alarm system is being upgraded in Towers 2 & 3. Conduit and device installation continues in Tower 2 in various locations. We have started installation in occupied apartments throughout Tower 2, however, we plan on entering all occupied apartments starting from the top floor down in the first week of July. This process will take one day per apartment. On the week of 07/03/17, we will perform the Fire Alarm installation on the 26th, 27th and 28th floors, from 9am-5pm. Note that the fire alarm devices are currently not active and have temporary covers fastened onto the face plates. Please excuse the noise while this work is being performed.

 

Tower 2- 27th floor Office to Apartment Renovations: Renovation at the existing office space located in Tower 2, apartment 27D will continue through July. Please excuse the noise while this work is being performed.
