What’s Happening?

January 31, 2023 – Going through the building to see the progress…you’ll see them getting ready to pour the concrete in the elevator shaft to create a foundation pad. We also had a chance to see the pieces of the boiler in the back of a truck–up to 500 pounds each. Jeff Brown came through with us, asked questions and met the VMJR team. We can’t wait! How about you?


January 17, 2023 – Photos from our Site Meeting this morning with CT Male and VMJR–progress is being made!


January 12, 2023 – Dirt and gunk and pipes and HUGE boulders and hard, hard work–remember this part is not glamorous, but it is the best part. VMJR is digging into the basement to get the elevator shaft situated. Alistair said they are down about 8 feet into the ground below floor level at this point. Hard work. Good work. We know this will pay off when we welcome our guests into the building. We are thankful and WE CAN’T WAIT!
