Sugarmont Apartments Construction Progress in Salt Lake City

Take a look at some new drone images we’ve captured of Sugarmont Apartment’s construction progress in 2019! Look at those great mountain views.

Sugarmont Apartments are located in the eclectic Sugar House Neighborhood of Salt Lake City. The Transit Oriented Development apartment complex will add much needed density to the area, replacing two existing abandoned warehouses. From the plaza, a pedestrian path intersects the L-shaped building and pulls the movement of people through the site with connecting paths to adjacent restaurants/bars. Amenities include a fitness center, 3rd floor pool with views towards Fairmont Park, a roof deck looking out to the mountains, and three additional courtyards on top of the podium that offer quieter reflection spaces.

Ken Schroeppel of DenverInfill.com posted a quick construction update on The Kasserman, formally Corum Highlands.  Check out the post for new photographs and some history as to why they've chosen the name of this new project in Denver's Highlands neighborhood. https://denverinfill.com/blog/2018/05/2680-18th-street-update-2.html

May's Construction Recap

At Studio PBA, we have created a dedicated construction administration department. This creates a multitude of benefits for our firm. By devoting staff strictly to construction administration (CA), each project undertaken by our firm has a team member with intimate knowledge of current construction practices and methods. It allows for more attention to be paid to each project during construction, subsequently minimizing the need for change orders and troubleshooting. Having a dedicated CA team means that the lessons learned on other projects are implemented into the drawings in real time and we're able to take advantage of active learning on projects. Our firm is able to make this very seamless transition between the production department and CA department by having the production project manager involved throughout the CA process.

Summer of 2018 is poised to be a big one for our CA team.  We currently have over ten projects nearing construction completion and several more are slated to break ground this summer.  Our teams are on site almost weekly monitoring the progress of these projects, gathering great ideas, lessons learned, and photos of the progress.

 

What’s Wrapping up this Summer:

Courtyard by Marriott, DIA, Denver, Colorado

"As American cities continue an upward trajectory toward reinvestment—one catalyzed by a growing population of people favoring concentration over sprawl—we are faced with the prospect of knowing thy neighbor a little better."  Camron Bridgford, one of Denver Infill's bloggers begins.  He starts by explaining how the benefits and attributes that make the cohousing community style more and more popular.  He then gives a great history of the structure, formally owned by Sisters of the Order of St. Francis.

Parkside Aerial Images of Construction Moving Forward

The Parkside Apartment Project in Denver's Riverside neighborhood is going vertical and making lots of progress. We haven't given an update on this project since February when construction began on the underground parking structure.  I received these great drone aerials last week from Tyler Elick with developer Holland Partner Group.  You can see the Commons Park-facing project has completed the podium and are starting on the wood framing.  This project will be home to 161 residential units and an underground podium garage with 169 spaces and will sit on Little Raven and 19th.

In addition the other cranes covering the Denver skyline, you can see the cranes for one of our other projects, AMLI Riverfront Green in construction two parcels over in front of the Glass House.

Thank you Tyler and Holland Partner Group for sharing the fantastic images!

Construction Progress: Riverfront Green

AMLI's Riverfront Green poured their first elevated post-tensioned slab on this morning.  This is the main pour under units and above the parking garage.  This was a very informative site visit for Studio PBA team members that had not seen an elevated PT slab poured.  There were roughly 150 people on site working this morning.  We had the ability to inspect all of the in-place rebar, tensioning cables, stud rails, sleeves, etc.  Keep an eye on Riverfront Green-- framing will be be going up in the next few weeks.

Modera River North Arts Update

Big construction update for Modera River North Arts!  This large development at 28th and Blake in the ever-popular RiNo District has been moving along very quickly-- we are completed with concrete, so all foundations are completed and slab on grade and both elevated slabs are complete.  Wood framing is in full force and Shaw Construction is expected to be topped out with roof framing completed by the end of April or the beginning of May.  Substantial completion of this project with developer Mill Creek is is projected to be middle of April 2018.

AMLI Riverfront Green - Site Update

AMLI Riverfront Green has reached the first floor.  After working hard through the winter months, the first at grade concrete slab has finally taken shape.  March will see the remainder of the building come up to the same level.  April will kick off with a bang when our first floor above grade starts to take shape.  All concrete work is scheduled to be completed by the end of May, when the metal wall panels for the apartments units will begin.  Now that we are above ground, take a moment to stop by and see the building taking shape.
