473 Oakwood is a Construction Site!
Note from Karen Dunk-Green, chair of the Renovation task force on August 29, 2023.
After many months of planning, estimating and revising, the renovation of 473 Oakwood is actually underway! We still have final estimates to obtain and financial hurdles to address. Nonetheless, we are taking the first physical steps toward having our new home ready in early 2025.
Last week I visited 473 Oakwood wearing the requisite safety boots and hard hat, to celebrate the kickoff of “abatement and demolition” with our Site Manager Frank O’Leary from Flat Iron Construction Management. Expert crews will remove hazardous materials (commonly found in old building materials) and tear down parts of the interior structure to make room for our layout and mechanical/electrical systems.
Stay tuned for more discussions and updates.
