Rennovations at the Terraces

Things were quite busy in the Terraces for the third quarter of 2008. A massive project to renovate the building was completed in just a few months. There were so many updates, I’m not sure I could even name them all but I am going to try.

The Terraces

The lower Garage and Upper garages both had marble and tile added around the elevator areas. The manager’s office has been completely redone including new furniture. The library has all new bookshelves, furniture, and lighting. The exercise room had the ceiling height increased, walls removed for added space, more exercise equipment, and and all new lighting. The bathrooms in the exercise room have been updated as well. A brand new sculpture has been added at the top of the stairs directly in the middle of the hallway. The entire lobby has new porcelain tile, new railings, new faux painted walls, marble accents around the elevators, and all new lighting. The residential hallways received all new carpet, faux painted walls, new sconces, and added pilasters to break up the long hallways. On each residential floor, there is a glass table right across from the elevator with blown glass sculptures. There is a new mail area, as well as a brand new security desk. The security desk is brand new, with higher ceilings above, and lighting with faux painted walls as well.

The security of the building is all new as well with security cameras on the inside and outside. The new key fob entry system, makes it easy and safe for owners to go in and out of the building. In addition to updates on the inside, the exterior landscaping has been redone by a new landscaping consultant. Overall, the project cost $2.1 Million for all of the updates, but the total costs were still below the budget. The project was paid in 3 special assessments by the owners. $6,000 assessments were made to each owner for June, October, and then February of 2009.
